A Big Kiss on Valentine’s Day!
February 13th, 2014

jfalkner-mwah

Happy Valentines Day! Today’s the day to reach out to those near and dear — and, for us, that definitely means you readers.

Valentines is the unofficial kick-off to the Spring card season. Lest we forget: Easter (April 13), Mothers Day (May 11, in Australia, Canada and the US; in the UK, it’s 30 March), Fathers Day (15 June; here the UK, US and Canada agree) and graduations in June.

But don’t feel overwhelmed, for help is at hand: we just happen to have cards for each one of these occasions. Have a little browse here. (To my own family, I caution: spoiler alert!)

Get a jump and choose your cards now and, not only will you have peace of mind, we’ll give you free shipping on your order until the end of February. Just use the code FREESHIP. It’s our little “mwah!” to you on Valentines Day.

Are you a note taker, or a list maker?
January 29th, 2014

Is it possible the world divides as neatly as this? Do some of us take notes, while others make lists?

What I do know — unequivocally — is that a splendid alchemy occurs when you put your thoughts down on actual paper. Ideas become clearer, and tasks seem less intimidating. A good list is nothing less than an “antidote to confusion” (a Maira Kalman expression I’ve long adored).

In fact, we have a friend who has been known to write down a task already accomplished, for the pure pleasure of checking it off a to-do list. (Ok, that friend is us.)

For the note taker, we have an elegant giraffe encouraging your thoughts, on a soothing French blue palette. Blue, we’re told, is the color most conducive to new ideas.

For the list maker, we have our Busy Bee. In fresh green to provide a buzz of energy — and, incidentally, that classic Palm Beach color combo, pink and green.

Each pad contains 75 tearaway pages, and a luxe smooth paper stock to let your pencil glide. Order one, or both, online here. Tuck in a matching pen — we favor those slim Japanese LePens that come in a rainbow of colors — and our notepads make a great hostess gift for just $7.50 each.

Thank YOU Serendipity Magazine!
January 22nd, 2014

Serendipity Magazine, the lifestyle magazine for Fairfield and Westchester County, ran a lovely story on the art of thank you notes in their last issue — and imagine our delight to see our little Whale “Thanks Tons” card feature in such a nice collection.

It’s always a treat for us to see our cards in the hands of a talented photographer, and we love the pretty composition of pens and paper against a mint green background. So fresh!

Probably there is some etiquette about getting your thank you cards out in a timely manner, but we think January is generally one of those dreary months when any bit of mail, whenever it arrives, is always welcome!

So sit yourself down with a box of thank you cards (which could always be ours if you wanted to order them right here), and thank Aunt Ethel for those Christmas wool socks …

Planting a Kiss in People Stylewatch!
December 16th, 2013

jfalkner-stylewatch-dec13

Just when we thought the holiday season couldn’t get more merry, we find ourselves in People Stylewatch’s annual holiday gift guide!

We’ve witnessed first-hand the curating that goes into one of these major gift guides: imagine the best ever pop up store suddenly materialising in a large conference room, but then imagine whittling all these goodies down to only the very best. So we couldn’t be more thrilled that our Lipstick Kiss Little Notes made the cut! (See below, top right.)

Of course, kisses are especially nice over the holidays (like our playful Mistletoe Christmas card, below) …

… but a little box of our Lipstick Kiss notes (see below) makes for a great gift year ’round. I always have a spare box handy in my emergency gift drawer … they are perfect for your party hostess, or your niece’s birthday. Find them at select retailers, or order some for yourself from our online store here.lipstick-kiss

Our New Calendar: The Perfect Little Gift
December 4th, 2013

calendar-front

Once again, December has snuck up on me — but this year I mind a little less, because it means just one more month until I can pop open our new Colorful Quotes Desk Calendar.

We’ve gathered some of our most popular quote cards, mixed in a few new ones for added spice, and are delighted to serve up 12 months of wit and wisdom — an eclectic collection that ranges from Oscar Wilde to Coco Chanel, and from Jack Kerouac to Pablo Neruda (see below).

quotes-composite

The solid, but lightweight, CD construction means they couldn’t be easier to mail out to long-distance friends — or slip into a Christmas stocking. Because what could be nicer than a little gift that provides a pop of color and conversation all year long?

calendar-beyourself

And at just $12.95, they’re the perfect multipurpose gift to have on hand. Order yours at our online store here, or find them at retailers nationwide. (For example, Annie’s Blue Ribbon in Brooklyn, Parker & Otis in Durham, NC or Stationer on Sunrise here in Palm Beach.)
