Holiday Gift-Giving Part Three: Gifts For Those Who Love the Written Word

Don't Panic!

Don’t Panic!

The holiday shopping season is in full swing. If you’re wondering what kind of gift to get for someone who’s hard to buy for, we have some suggestions that might come in handy. For the gadget-lovers, we’ve got a list of great tech gifts; last week we shared some great gourmet gifts for food aficionados. This week we’d like to share our top gifts for people who love the written word. Anyone who appreciates journals, fine writing instruments and stationery will likely enjoy one of these thoughtful choices:

  1. Moleskine notebook – Known for their quality, sturdy and elegant Moleskine notebooks come in a variety of sizes and can be enjoyed for everything from recording travel notes and drawing sketches to logging daily observations. A Moleskine weekly planner is also a great option for those who wish to stay organized in style.
  2. Writer’s log – Many people who enjoy writing particularly appreciate the tactile experience involved—opening a smooth leather or soft wool cover, touching the pages, and putting pen to ink. An attractive writer’s log would be a fine gift for them.
  3. Pen gift set – A beautiful pen, presented in a classy case, is another thoughtful choice. There are a range of pen gift sets available, some fashioned with maplewood or rosewood. For those who prefer a clean, modern aesthetic, metal pen sets are a good choice. Some sets also include letter openers, key tags, and business card cases. Pen and journal gift sets are also a great pick, as they come with everything needed to start writing on the spot.
  4. Stylus pen – Some people are avid tablet users while still maintaining an interest in writing by hand. They might appreciate a writing instrument that works well in both worlds: a stylus pen that performs beautifully on a tablet and doubles as a pen for writing on paper. Some even come with LED flashlights or laser pointers, and they are available in a variety of materials from colorful metallic options to stylish bamboo.
  5. Desk set – A fine desk set is always a great choice. When putting in long hours at the office, it’s nice to work with beautiful desk accessories that are pleasing to the eye. There are myriad options in this category, from memo pad holders to pen stands, desk blotters, paperweights, desk clocks, picture frames, and more.

Calender of Events: June

Here at Branding Ideas, ideas are our business. The best way to come up with a unique idea to help promote your brand, product or event is to start with something small and toss the idea around for a while and see if something more substantial grows out of it. For example, each calendar month provides tons of ideas on which you could base a promotion for your business. That’s why we post a calendar of events each month to get you thinking. If something fits into the vision you’ve created for a new product or your brand in general, run with it. June is National Rose Month. It’s also National Diary Month, which provides a perfect excuse to send your valuable clients and customers personalized journals branded with your logo. (Need some suggestions for affordable journals and other promotional items? We’re here to help!) Here are some other notable dates and holidays for June:

Monday, June 14th – Flag Day
Sunday, June 20th – Father’s Day
Monday, June 21st – First Day of Summer
