I’m having one of those never-ending crazy days (weeks, months, year…) and thinking that personalized writing goods would make it all better.
Not really, but the thought of taking the time to handwrite a heartfelt note seems like a welcome break to these technology warped hands of mine.
And, psssst. Wouldn’t a personalized gift like these make the perfect holiday surprise for a friend?

I’m headed to New York City this week for some research and shopping and CAN’T WAIT to see what’s new in-stores! One of my most favorite stores to see in New York, London or Tokyo is Muji. They make and carry the most simple, well-designed and affordable home goods, office wares and clothing that I can’t ever leave empty handed.
I’m hopelessly addicted to their ball point pens and craft paper envelopes. I have drawers full both at home and at the office.
I love to buy their notebooks in bulk and personalize them with Japanese tape or rubber stamps to give as gifts.
And some other faves: the uncloggable spray bottle; city in a bag wooden blocks make perfect the perfect souvenir gift for kids both big and small; softest socks!
Can’t wait to see what they have in store this week!
