Although the radio stations are no longer playing Christmas carols and the Griswolds aren't on TBS 24/7, we haven't yet begun to undecorate the tree or put away our Christmas gifts. But making a list of notes we need to write and actually purchasing some thank you notes makes us feel like we are taking a step in the right direction.
For dressy holiday thank you stationery, these folded notes with a gold wreath and foil lining are beautiful. They are rather formal but perfect for the right occasion!
Crane Engraved Gold Wreath, $9 for 10 cards
These cards in Kate Spade's classic green are just adorable! The striped envelope liners absolutely make them. Details such as lined envelopes, a monogram, or engraved text make such a huge difference in stationery.
Kate Spade Thanks a Million, $25 for 10
When a more casual card is appropriate, these notes with "thank you" written in three colorful languages perfectly fit the bill!
Kate Spade Cards, $30 for 10
We love supporting the independent artists whose products are featured on etsy. These "merci" notecards with a sketched Eiffel Tower are precious!
Etsy Merci Cards, $18 for 12
Red and white is a classic, happy color combination. You could use these notes to show appreciation for holiday gifts or even any time of the year!
Crane Red Preppy Notes, $13 for 10
These folded notecards with classic navy trim are the deal of the day. We'd like to see them in person to check out the quality, because the price seems too good to be true!
Target Blue Notes, $8 for 50
I just went to Target and checked out their "letterpress" line. It really is so pretty (and budget-friendly!), and it is printed on good quality cardstock. These green dandelion cards are perfect!
Target Green Dandelion Notes, $13 for 50
Pink and green is such a fun color combination, but we will admit that it is a bit overplayed. These notes are a more sophisticated twist on the classic pink and green combination.
Crane Limon Engraved Cards, $15 for 10
Cherry blossoms are one of our all-time favorite flowers. MoS Washington chose them for her beautiful change-of-address cards a few years ago, and I have loved them ever since.
