Getting Personal {GIVEAWAY}

Some of the hardest people for me to shop for during the holiday season are other women.  We all have our own sense of style so buying clothes or jewelry is tough, and there are only so many candles or body lotions you can give someone over the years.  I see you all nodding in agreement out there!  Lucky for you, I've found a solution to this gift-giving dilemma - personalized stationery.

I see that look on your face.  You look doubtful.  And I know why - because something like that is usually a pricey present.  But not to worry - I've solved that problem too.  Just check out the darling line of paper goods from Anna and Blue Paperie.


For $16, you get 12 personalized note cards and coordinating envelopes.  Aha!  Now I see you smiling.  And now you know why these note cards are one of my HOLIDAY GIFT PICKS.


Started by Stefanie, a stay at home mom to two girls, Annabelle (the Anna) and Madeline (who has Blue eyes), Anna and Blue Paperie has so many wonderful designs to choose from too.  I love this preppy monogram.


A version with a single initial is so elegant.


And the Hounds Tooth style has some sass.


There are even PIY - print-it-yourself options - that start at just $6 so you can customize something to your needs and run off as many as you want!


And don't think Anna and Blue Paperie's note cards are just for adults. I love this design for little ladies:


And I may have to order a set of these for Gabrielle and Alaina. 


If you want to add in a little something extra, you can also order coordinating return address labels.


Anna and Blue Paperie also carries great party printables, holiday labels, birth announcements and more, all of which can be totally customized to your needs.  And one lucky AFOMFT reader is going to get to pick exactly what they want from that list....
