Cool wrapping paper as nice as the gift inside.

I get tired of the same old gift wrap I seem to see everywhere. I’m one of those people who would rather show up at a party with cool wrapping paper instead of a package that looks identical to everyone else’s. So when I discovered the original, very cool wrapping paper and cards from Lily & Val, I swooned. Featuring hand-lettered chalk art by Valerie McKeehan, it’s all super fun, isn’t it? The Flower and Vines wrapping paper (at top) comes in a pack of three sheets and is great to keep on hand for any gift at all that you...

A Father’s Day gift from the kid. Of the kid.

We’ve recently shared 10 of our favorite personalized Father’s Day gifts, and now there’s one more we’re in love with. Now let me first tell you, normally, I get a little panicked about Father’s Day gift-giving, while consoling myself with the knowledge that, worse comes to worst, my husband always sincerely appreciates a card from the kids. But with this discovery, I’m totally calm–because he’s getting personalized cards of the kids. [don’t miss an exclusive, limited time discount after the jump!] Cool Mom Picks loved the unique holiday cards from Dear Ida, and now we’re completely smitten with their new...

C’mon get happy

I’m a bit of a journal and notepad hoarder, because as a writer, I believe you can never have too many, in too many places. Still, you don’t have to be a writer to know the joys of a pretty notepad, and these ones I just found are decidedly happy-making. The happy notes notepads are a little spendy but I know that–as promised on the cover–they’d make me happy every time I look at them. Beneath the gold foiled cover, you’ll find 5 rainbow-colored, heavy paper stock notecards ready for jotting down the good stuff. I think it would...

Thank you, oh thank you

One of my resolutions this year: Get better at sending thank you notes. Have I broken that resolution already? No comment. But I’m here to tell you that it is not too late to send out thank you notes for your holiday gifts. I know how it gets as the weeks blow by and suddenly you’re like eh…I’ll thank her in person when I see her in a few weeks. However I can’t think of a nicer surprise at the end of a blustery, dark January than a handwritten note in my mailbox. I was browsing the selection of...

Children’s thank you notes with an extra personal touch

My children are fortunate to have extremely generous family members who love to spoil them with lots of Christmas gifts. And since my 6-year-old can now write well enough to ask them for specific presents, my feeling is she can do her own thank you notes this year too. I’ve tracked down two adorable card options for kids that are perfect for the job. The personalized kid silhouette stationery from Lotus and November are so unique, I really just love them. And they’re excellent not just for holiday thank yous, but for other occasions throughout the year. You just need to submit a...

I just wrote to say I love you

I don’t know about you, but I’m only a few months into school lunch-making and I’m running out with ideas to keep it interesting. Mostly for me. I try to create little surprises in my daughter’s lunchbox every day, from slicing her sandwich in different shapes, to tucking in a little sticky note with a silly drawing. A couple of companies are doing some cool stuff with lunchbox notes, for those mornings you (or really, I) just don’t the creativity in me. Or, you just want to do something a little more special on extra-special spelling test/school photo/soccer game...
