Top 10 Holiday Favorites!
We know holiday shopping can be a bit stressful, but we’re here to help with Top 10 Holiday Favorites you can find at Noteworthy Paper & Press this year!
⭑ = Noteworthy staff pick!
#1 Get ahead of the holiday season (and the post office!) and get your holiday cards in the mail early this year! Noteworthy's holiday stationery collection is vast and has tons of holiday single cards, like our revamped Christmas Island Greeting Card, boxed notes, and thank you cards for you to choose from. Designed in-house here at Noteworthy, with many printed on our 1950’s original Heidelberg printing presses, we’ve got a variety of lighthearted and sincere holiday messages to send to your loved ones!
⭑ #2 With notes of cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rich oak moss, it’s hard to find a candle better suited for the holidays than the Balsam & Cedar Candle from Illume. Take it from our wholesale product designer Adrienne: “The Balsam & Cedar candles have been a staff favorite for years! They get snapped up by staff in the first few days, so we make sure to stock up on a lot for the holiday season! The scent is perfectly balanced and not too perfume-y!” Want a candle with a slightly sweeter note? Check out Illume’s North Sky Candle – with aromatic citrus, fir and blackcurrant notes, it’s sure to give the Balsam & Cedar Candle a run for its money.
#3 Sugar, spice, and everything nice! Whether it’s baking delicious ginger snaps, crafting a yule log, or making cookies for Santa Claus, we’ve got just the thing for the baker in your life! With a sweet and simple design, the Noteworthy Amaryllis Holiday Tea Towel is a must-have in the kitchen for the holidays. Printed on a soft and durable cotton fabric, get messy with your kitchen creations, and when you’re done, just pop your tea towel in the wash! They're made to use and to last!
⭑ #4 It’s time to take your holiday cocktail game to the next level with holiday flavored simple syrups from Meadowland Simple Syrups. Retail associate JoAnn loves to experiment with Meadowland’s new flavors every season she can: “I love coming up with fun drink concoctions at home, so the chance to bring some holiday flavors into the mix is a no brainer for me! Adding a dash of the Candy Cane Simple Syrup is absolutely divine in a steaming cup of hot cocoa, topped with mini marshmallows, of course!” Perfect for a hot toddy, some cocoa, or even in your favorite frosting recipe, these simple syrups are just the thing to sweeten up your snowy days at home. Can’t pick just one? Try out the Winter Wonderland Holiday Syrup Sampler!
⭑ #5 You can’t curl up with a hot beverage without the perfect holiday mug! Lucky for you, we’ve got three gorgeous Holiday Porcelain Mugs from Rifle Paper Co.! Amy, a co-owner of Noteworthy, has had her eye on them since they arrived: “I love these new holiday mugs! I get so much joy in pulling out holiday specific wares to replace our everyday items around the house. Using holiday mugs instead of our basic white ones is so fun! It’s pieces like these that become heirlooms and add to the magic of the season.” Grab a Nutcracker Mug for yourself and a Holiday Village Mug for your friend, and spread some holiday cheer!
#6 NEW from yours truly here at Noteworthy, we bring you the Yeti Postcard! This three-color letterpress, die-cut postcard is snow much fun! Put a spin on the traditional holiday card and send this magical furry beast instead! Or let it become a new holiday decoration on your fridge, in the tree, or in the window to give your neighbors an abominable sighting!
#8 One of the best ways to spend time with your loved ones during the holiday season is with a good ol’ fashioned puzzle! Grab a mug of hot cocoa, put on a little Christmas music, and settle in with your favorite holiday jigsaw. You can’t go wrong with a Cavallini holiday-themed puzzle, like this vintage Peace on Earth 500 Piece Puzzle . Classically designed, with a muslin bag to keep your pieces from getting lost, Cavallini puzzles are a sure way to gather the family together, and always make for a thoughtful holiday gift! (*hint hint* and at those White Elephant work parties!)
⭑ #9 With all these great gifts, what will you use to wrap them all? We’ve got loads of holiday gift bags and gift wrap, but Rifle Paper Co.’s wrapping paper, especially this Deck the Halls Wrapping Roll, is the go-to for our press operator Dani: “Quality wrapping paper, like Rifle’s, is always a must on my Christmas shopping list. It’s easy to underestimate, but a beautiful pattern and solid paper (that doesn’t tear!) really elevates the gift-giving experience!” With grid lines for easy measuring, you can’t go wrong with our selection of Rifle Paper Co. wrapping paper! Don’t forget to add the bow on top!
⭑ #10 You didn’t think we would complete our list of holiday favorites without mentioning THE Stick of Butter ornament, did you?! An ornament that needs no further introduction, the Stick of Butter from Cody Foster & Co. is–without a doubt–our best selling ornament of all time! Rachel, our wholesale sales accounts manager, knows firsthand: “When the butter ornament came in for the first time a few years ago, I was one of the first to snag one. Thank goodness I did because they are so popular, they usually sell out in a matter of days! The butter always graces my Christmas tree and reminds me of baking cookies with my mom for the holidays.” Like Rachel said, these sell quickly! Be sure to snag yours now before the chance slips through your fingers like . . . well, you get it.
