Gifts You Can Personalize
These personalized, “fancy” return address stampers make me so happy. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE mine! I use them for the return address on envelopes but also for stamping the inside of books that I loan out. I used to save the free return address stickers that some non-profits send you as an incentive to donate money. When those ran out, I had a very non-fancy return address stamper that was sad-looking and didn’t even work that well. It’s funny how something very small but indulgent can make me happy each time I use it (even when paying the bills!).
If your price point is $50 ($40 plus shipping), these fancy stampers also make great teacher and tutor gifts and/or gifts for family members. My kids also love them with just their name or initials (but not address) to make their own stationery.
For another idea, Capability:Mom is posting a Pretty Paper Giveaway!.
There are many, many styles to choose from but these are my favorites:

I like these – and am asking for one from Santa. I love that you mark your books with them – very distinctive and no searching for names in the book.
I have to say that this was the best $50 I’ve ever spent. And one stamper lasts a really long time. Mine is still going! I think you can get replacement ink pad inserts also if the ink gets used up. I’ll have to look into that!
