There are certain things we traditionally associate with the Holidays: gift wrap, cards, cute stationery, bright gift bags; and it always makes me feel good to sit down and wrap the presents or sign a thank you card. Last week I discovered PAPYRUS, a convenient one-stop shop for all of your Holiday essentials, and the perfect place to pick up gifts and souvenirs for your family and friends.
Founded in 1950 as an importer of European paper products, PAPYRUS has expanded exponentially after opening their very first retail location at Berkeley in 1973. Today PAPYRUS has more than 200 locations across the U.S. and Canada, as well as a user-friendly online store. I also found out there’s a brand new “Little Treasure” store that just opened at South Bend’s University Park Mall [if you live in Michiana you know where that is]. I often shop in that area, so I plan to stop by and check out the seasonal offerings next time I’m in town! I’ll let you know on Facebook and Twitter when I update this post with pictures from the store.
PAPYRUS celebrates the everyday events that make every moment special, and that notion is very close to my own philosophy. That’s why I scoured their online store and selected a few lovely trinkets you could pick up to make someone’s day!
PAPYRUS 4×4 Gold Round Textured Frame – With an antique gold look, this round textured frame is hefty and sturdy. The craftsmanship is great, and the frame looks much more expensive than it is. I am currently using it for a small drawn picture of downtown Moscow to celebrate my heritage, but you could also cut a gift card to make it a festive or chic house accent.
Kate Spade Gold Dots Pencil Pouch Set – The perfect little gift for a stationery lover in your life, this pouch can be used for makeup and other little things that usually get lost in a purse. Each set comes with a pencil sharpener, a clear plastic ruler, an eraser, and two adorable polkadot pencils. Throw in this pretty pen for good measure and you will never have to panic when trying to find something to write with.
Kate Spade Bow Paper Clips – A stocking stuffer, a get-well gift, or simply a nice little gesture to congratulate someone on their new job, these delicate golden paper clips are anything but ordinary. Somehow, beautiful office essentials always make me want to try and be more organized, so while you’re at it don’t forget to pick up a pack for yourself! 😉
Time to Celebrate Jewel Bottle Opener – While bar soaps, chocolate, and wine all make great hostess gifts, a beautiful bottle opener that won’t be an eyesore on the table is an unexpected and thoughtful alternative. I don’t think I ever imagined raving about a bottle opener on this blog, but you’ve got to admit it’s simply gorgeous!
I hope my little guide inspired you to celebrate this year’s Holidays with PAPYRUS products. For more information, gifts, and promotions please check out the brand’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Don’t hesitate to also check out PAPYRUS online store and come back to let me know what little treasures you happened to find there!
