Last year, Pragmatic Mom suggested a personalized stamp (I have long admired the way she uses hers to stamp her books) and I found this lovely stamp at Paper Source with free shipping. So while it currently resides in my present cabinet (what, doesn’t everyone have a present cabinet?), I just may keep it for myself. Last year I posted on this topic here with a giveaway and I still love the papers from Botanical PaperWorks.
Also, Paper Source is one of my default places to shop for little stocking stuffers (also Urban Outfitters) and a sweet local store in Newton – Just Next Door – where I always come up with something special – it is one of those stores that truly does have something for everyone on your gift list. If you are not lucky enough to have a local treasure like this, to the internet!

Added: I kind of left out a paragraph or so…darn holiday brain! My fave holiday cards? Paper Source, Moo.com anda company I found that is offering a giveaway Day2Day Printing. Check back her on Monday!
