Simone is a public relations and marketing pro who knows how to find the perfect gift, for the perfect budget. She’s been blogging about gift-giving since 2008. Find her insights and ideas on her blog, http://honeebeegifts.blogspot.com. When she isn’t blogging or finding the perfect gift, you can find her enjoying the arts, good food, and working with several community nonprofits.

This gift tip is one I created myself by putting together two of my favorite things: note cards (who doesn't love a handwritten note?) and quotes about life, love and simple inspiration. With this collaboration of my faves, I decided to create personalized note cards. I worked with a local stationary store on my concept: I wanted to have a few sayings that I had come across that spoke to me placed on a simple whitestock note card. I wanted the sayings to "pop" off the page with color and various fonts. I thought the cards came out great! What do you think?

In this case, I was the recipient of the gift but so were others, as I gave out sets of the cards during my blog party, to friends for their birthdays or "just because" and they were a hit. One of my friends said it was her best gift ever. Wowsers!

I encourage you to gift these to yourself and give out as small tokens of love/friendship... you know those gifts you leave on someone's pillow or surprise a friend with over lunch? These note cards would be perfect for that!
