Whenever I receive a gift — whether it be for my birthday, a holiday, or some other occasion — I always get especially excited to read the card. Handwritten cards are such a touching and meaningful way to show someone how much you care. I often cherish these cards more than the actual gift, and I keep them to look back on later. If you want your holiday gifts to be especially memorable this year, write letters to accompany your presents using some of the stationery below. Or, if someone in your life likes to write notes, these stationery items will make the ideal gift for them!
Bookish Greeting Cards
There are so many different kinds of bookish greeting cards, from birthday cards to holiday cards and more. Some of these cards are more generic, while others are specific to a particular book or author, such as these greeting cards based on Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. The first card depicts the book’s titular character, Anne Shirley, while the second card contains one of the most famous quotes from the book: “True friends are always together in spirit.” This shop also sells a bookmark with a matching design!
If you have more than one bookworm in your life, you can make your life easier by getting a set of assorted greeting cards, each adorned with an adorable, bookish design. For example, this set of four bookish greeting cards on Etsy is great for any occasion.
For a slightly different style, check out these postcards, inspired by various books and authors: this postcard is based on Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own; this postcard is based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland; and this postcard is based on an Oscar Wilde quote from De Profundis. Check out even more postcards and other bookish stationery from Literary Emporium here, as well as this gorgeous set of 12 literary postcards from Bookishly.
P.S. These companies are based in the United Kingdom, so if you live outside of the UK, you should place your order as soon as possible so that it will arrive in time for the holidays!
