Arguably the hottest brand in stationery right now, Sugar Paper Los Angeles is best known for their contemporary letterpress and foil designs. For holiday gifting, we are crazy about notesets and thank you notes in foil by Sugar Paper Los Angeles. They are just so irresistibly festive {and shiny!!!}.

Another hot brand in stationery that we love to gift: Rifle Paper Co. We are especially crazy about Rifle Paper Co.’s assorted card sets…

Finally, a brand that we have loved for years who continues to up the ante, Haute Papier, makes great stationery gifts…

Welcome to another Inspired Gifting post! This week we are super excited to focus on the littles in your life! Here at Salutations, we know a thing or two about gifting and put a lot of thought into the act. For children’s gifts we like to give items that are imaginative, thought-provoking, and interactive. Enter this adorable story starter set “And Then…” by Compendium, available at Salutations.

We love the illustrations by Alexandra Ball and story {beginnings} by M. H. Clark. And we love that children can read and create their stories alone or interact with friends, siblings and family.

We also love that since these are story starters, they can be read time and again with different outcomes. It’s almost like giving 20 separate books {times the infinite number of stories that you and the recipient will create}. That makes this gift’s price of less than $30 a real steal!
