Last year, one of my favorite friends gave us a pop-up tape dispenser and refills with a cute little note about wrapping up our holiday season. It was so thoughtful and every time I use the tape, I think of her. Gifts that are useful are a double dose of goodness. It’s like saying “You are important to me, so I am giving you something lovely.” and “I am thinking of you and want to help you out.” all at once.  Thank you cards are a perfect gift to do just that; and Crane & Co. are the Tiffany’s of paper. They have been printing for 8 generations. Paul Revere engraved banknotes for the Colony of Massachusetts Bay on Crane paper to help finance the American Revolution. (Actually, their paper is still used in printing currency today.) Take a look around their elegant site and you will feel a little more graceful yourself. They have forums and a community and a beautifully done section on etiquette. Really, check it out. You will see why I am so in love with them.

Crane & Co. has kindly offered to send one reader a set of these charming multicolored, multilingual thank you notes from their Kate Spade collection. If you are going to give a thoughtful gift, why not do it stylishly?
