Call me old school, but I miss the art of a handwritten note. A text message is fine when I’m on the go or if I have funny GIF to share, but when it comes to really showing someone I care, nothing beats a letter. The truth is, I actually dread going to my mailbox. Ask my husband. I literally don’t go. Because when I do without fail I find bills, catalogues and take-out menus.
But then, every once in awhile, I stumble upon a nice envelope amongst the pile of junk. You know the one—smaller than most, normally any color but white, made of good quality paper. Without fail when I see my mom’s handwritten note, sent just because she’s thinking of me, I instantly feel better. She could have called, she could have sent me a text (well, let’s be honest, she actually did both of those things), but she still took the time to write me a note. And for that I love her.
So here's to you Mom, thank you for always thinking of me and surprise…I’m getting you stationery for Mother’s Day! And to all of you who have a handwritten-note-loving mom like mine, here are 15 stationery gifts to suit every mama's personality. The best part? There's still time to get these to her by the big day!
These beauties may even inspire you to write her a letter wishing her a happy Mother’s Day...ya know, instead of texting her one.
