It’ll be here before you know it. So if you’re in need of a few ideas on what to give (or in some cases, what to put on your own list) this year, this is the place to be for the next couple weeks. Our annual 12 days of Dappered covers one item each week-day between now and December 11th. That’ll leave some time for shipping if you’re the last minute type. All will be reasonably affordable. See the growing archive here.
So you’ve got the thank you note thing down, and maybe you hammer out an actual letter every once in awhile. Scribbling your return address on the envelope is one of those tasks that’s about as enjoyable as drying dishes. Should be done, has no real appeal to it.
The answer: Get a stamp.
These are from the Holmes Stamp artfire shop. They’ve been around awhile, are well reviewed, and offer a ton of designs. Some are simple, some a little more masculine, and some… straight up girly. They’ve got quite a bit to choose from, plus you can have a totally custom design made if need be. For somewhere around $20 you can get one of their pre-designed stamps with an ink pad in the color of your choice (assuming you don’t want a self inking model, but they have plenty of those too). Looks like they have more inventory over in their etsy shop, but stamps over there run closer to $26.
The challenge after a purchase like this will be to resist stamping everything and anything. Like the dog. Don’t stamp the dog. Infant’s forehead first. Then dog.
