Holiday 2014 – Embrace the Art of the Hand Written Note

Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s I still have a love of both sending and receiving a hand written letter whether it be a note to say Thank You, a letter, or a “just because” note. In an age where texting, tweeting, and email are the new normal, getting something in the mail that is not a bill or magazine just puts a smile on my face.

As we start to look for last minute gifts this holiday season let’s keep in mind the lost art of the hand written note/card/letter and encourage our friends and family to pick up a pen and sit down to write. A great way to do this is to gift a pen. Now I’m not talking about your stand pack of gel-rollers that we pick up down at CVS, no I’m talking about a luxury pen, one that deserves to be kept on that fancy writing desk and used to craft a note of love and thanks.



This year, Cross Pens is celebrating their Peerless Pen’s 125th anniversary with a new collection of pens that are worthy of name [Pen]. The new Peerless Pen collection is available in various types of finishes from black lacquer to 23kt gold plated, and all are available in either ballpoint, fountain, or rollerball form.

I took my own advice this year and instead of doing the easy thing of sending out digital Christmas cards, I sat down and hand wrote cards to all those nearest and dearest to me.

As we move forward into 2015, let us remember to all taken a moment to sit down and send someone a note knowing that it will put a simple on their face.
