“My Brooklyn love continues with my favorite holiday card from the PostScript Brooklyn line. All my friends and family will be receiving the Montague Street holiday card – blue skyline, green watertower and all greetings one could ever hope to send: laughter, joy, peace, glad hearts, happiness, cheerful spirits. So happy to be sending true Brooklyn love to all my peeps near and far.”

Next up is Sarah’s selection: “I like to start the holiday season off with a “Ding! to local handmade ornaments!” The Great Lakes, a Brooklyn based company, tops the charts this year with wooden hand painted ornaments. For the more traditional, a wooden bell packaged in a cute muslin drawstring bag can add some music to your own Christmas tree. For that creative unique friend, I am leaning toward the die cut wooden arrow painted with a neon orange point and accented with baby blue stripes. My all-time favorite is “The Slice of Life” ornament – actual slices of tree branches hand painted creating a cycle wheel of beauty.”

Melinda can’t decide. Here’s her holiday card picks:
“I picked two! First up is this box of confetti covered holiday cards from Sugar Paper Los Angeles. I’m especially in love with the pink envelope and gold foil printed liner … Second, I chose these NYC-inspired Dear Hancock cards. A snowman on top of a taxi – it doesn’t get more New York than that!”

Jess’s journal obsession:
“I have been head over heels for these Christian Lacroix Papier notebooks since the day they arrived in the shop. As a notebook fanatic, I would be thrilled to unwrap one of these guys this holiday season, and I’m pretty confident I’m not alone. Grab one for your favorite writer, poet, or list-maker. Oh, and throw in a Le Pen – they’re my fave!”

Here’s Melinda on the gift she couldn’t wait for…
“I had been a fan of the Humans of New York blog for years when I heard the book was coming out. Of course, I couldn’t wait to order it for the shop! Brandon Stanton’s photographs and interviews are fascinating, funny, inspiring, and touching. They paint a beautiful picture of New York that locals will love and visitors will certainly appreciate.”

If Jess were stationery…
“I am totally obsessed with Ferme a Papier‘s holiday cards by Cat Seto. Seriously, I like to imagine that if I was a box of holiday cards, I would be a box of these … The designs are the perfect mix of cozy and urban, warm and contemporary. Absolutely perfect for city-dwellers looking for modern standout cards this season. And once the holidays have passed, you can snag Ferme a Papier’s super cool everyday stationery sets too.”
