There is something so special about receiving a card in the mail. We hope this traditional aspect won't go away anytime soon as it conveys a personal and meaningful touch to so many of life's moments. To celebrate the handwritten card, we uncovered some of our favorites featuring whimsical prints to modern designs. Here are just a few of our favorites.
1. Scratch Off Greetings: Inspired by a longtime love of lotto tickets, these artist designed fun greetings that evoke a sense of wonderment and mystery as one reveals the hidden message. This includes a line of amazing baby announcement cards, thank you cards, birthday cards as well as tender (and sassy) cards for the everyday and special occasions. Some of our favorites are the Gift box, Flowers, just because and the fun It's a girl (or boy) (Set of 8 cards) baby announcements that will have your friends or family guessing until they scratch off the big reveal.
2. Smudge Ink knows how to catch one's eye and make a statement without going overboard. Their use of bright colors, simple illustrations, and poignant yet to the point sentiments have become their trademark, and set the tone for cards that go straight to their recipients' hearts. For a cheeky note that will surely make her smile, their Basket of Laundry card is a must, whereas their Rain or Shine card is a sweetly sentimental option. Additionally, their letterpress cards are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper and made in the USA for an eco-conscious quality that begs to be felt and loved.

Mom Picks for Best Modern Wooden Play Gyms
Let's be honest: Most baby gyms look like a primary color explosion of yikesness. And yes, I owned one and found it an absolute lifesaver at that bewitching hour when every child under 1 starts crying right when you need to be cooking dinner. But whenever company arrived, I would ...read more
