As the Founder of KindNotes, I was extremely appreciative of receiving one of the most (if not, THE most) heartfelt stories from a repeat customer. I’m compelled to share some of her words with you because she touched upon many of the reasons why KindNotes was created. Her story:
“Several years ago, I was looking for a concrete way to remind my husband daily of my love for him but wasn’t sure what I was looking for…until I happened upon kindnotes.com. I immediately realized I could fill a jar with notes, each bearing a significant phrase from the many poems I’d written for him during our many years together, and he could keep it in his office. He recently told me he considers it one of the best gifts I’ve ever given him. He keeps the jar in a prominent place on his desk and retrieves a note now and then. The jar of notes is only second to his wedding ring as an outward reminder of my love for him.
Our family loved the chance last Christmas to write down the things they wanted to tell her (mom) on notes that perhaps some felt they could not express to her in person. I sat with her after Christmas in the nursing home and read the notes to her each of her children and grandchildren had written. Again, the jars sit in prominent spots right next to our mothers’ easy chairs. The jars can be used for so many occasions and so many reasons and evoke so many emotions for both the giver and the receiver. I can’t tell you how much the jar brings families together and the love it holds and represents. As I said, it is perhaps only second to a wedding ring or family heirloom in its significance.
God bless you for making a product that encourages maintaining personal connections with loved ones in a culture that has become impersonal and disconnected. One never knows … a personal note from the jar could be the last thing one of us gets to say to and read by our loved one.” -Rebecca W.
This is why I love doing what we do. It is the best reward to know that we can bring people closer, help people express their feelings, and make people smile around the world, especially when technology is so rampant. Each jar of notes is carefully handcrafted, from the envelopes being glued, to each being strategically arranged inside the jar for an impressive and thoughtful gift. We have messages people can choose from (or personalize) that will create the perfect anniversary gift, birthday gift, get well gift, long distance gift and so much more. Not to mention, it’s the best gift to cheer up anyone! Whether a unique Valentine’s Day gift or it being the best gift for mom, we always make sure that the jars are made with high quality materials and with the utmost care.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hot off the presses and unlike anything else in the greeting card and paper craft market are KindNotes® new Keepsake Gift Cards™ and Favor Gift Cards™
KindNotes® may have made their mark through their innovative jars filled with tiny notes of happiness, but that was just the beginning. They’rebranching out with an all-new twist to the classic gift card. Instead of buying dinner or clothes, KindNotes® new Keepsake Gift Cards™ and Favor Gift Cards™ can be redeemed for love, joy, venting, and even road trips.
For all the parents out there who have ever wished for just a little time for themselves KindNotes® has the gift card they never thought to ask for. When things have been a little bit stressful, they’ll appreciate receiving the “Time for Yourself” card. This highly-desired pass is an unselfish way for a parent or loved one to take a little “me” time. Be sure to include the “All My Love” card, which entitles its user to a lifetime of love and complementary hugs and kisses.
Send a smile someone’s way by gifting them with a number of evasive maneuvers that bring humor to the art of slacking off. For the baseball or football fan who cannot catch a break on game day, give them a way to escape chores and take solace in the sofa and a cold brew with the “Watching Sports” cards. When it seems like a pal is always being put to task give them the “Errand Run” card and tell them to redeem it and enjoy a day of window shopping or fishing on the lake instead.
Coming soon to their Keepsake Gift Cards™ and Favor Gift Cards™ is a collection that’s for the kids. Perfect as stocking stuffers or included in greeting card envelopes, these silly cards can get them out of a chore or give them a little extra playtime.
Since 2007, KindNotes® has been offering folks heartfelt ways to show loved ones and friends what they mean to each other. The original KindNotes® collections feature unique and customizable bundles of 31 handcrafted personal messages, enclosed in mini decorative envelopes and all packaged in an exquisitely decorated container.

Please visit www.kindnotes.com for a number of other new designs (these are not your average homemade favor coupons)! While you’re there, take a look at our original jars of messages in mini envelopes for the recipient to open each day or anytime they need a smile!

It’s difficult to find true friends but what’s even more challenging is finding really good friends. So, if you already have your “core” group, you’re one of the lucky few who have people they can always count on. This season, why not show your appreciation by making your gifts for good friends more meaningful.
Here are some of our suggestions:
Gift Baskets – a basket full of gifts is a great way to show your friend how much you appreciate him or her. A movie basket can include movie snacks and your friend’s favorite movies of all time while a travel basket can contain a guide to a country they are thinking of visiting plus a travel kit that comes in handy when they do get the chance to travel.
Personalized Jewelry – Nothing says you’re very special than a set of jewelry that’s custom made so why not give it to special friend on a certain occasion? Modern friendship bracelets now come in different designs with semi-precious and precious stones like beads, crystals, or pearls. Engraved jewelry can also be a great way to personalize your gift.
Handwritten Gifts – In this day and age where everything is digital, it’s always refreshing to receive something that’s handwritten. This is the reason why we love everything handwritten here at Kindnotes! A memory journal is also a great gift for your best friend who loves to write.
Whatever it is that you decide to give your friend, add a personal touch to make sure that he or she feels extra special. After all, we only get to have a few real friends in our lifetime and a few occasions to make show them how grateful you are for their friendship.

So it seems that the perfect gift is just around the corner waiting to be discovered but in reality, it’s the many choices we have to make that makes shopping for gifts quite a daunting task. So why not add a vintage feel to your gift choices this year? This will make you narrow down your choices and make your recipients happy!
Here are some great vintage holiday gift ideas:
VINTAGE BOOK – Anyone who is a fan of reading books or history will appreciate you giving them a first edition novel. Head to your nearest vintage shop and ask for some titles they might have.
VINTAGE ORNAMENTS – A friend who has a nice home could use a vintage ornament to add flair to his or her house. With the vintage trend comes the birth of stores that sell such ornaments. Who knows, you might even find a thing or two that you’d like to put in your own home.
VINTAGE DRESS – Let your sister or best friend rock a vintage dress outfit from the 20s to the 50s. All you need to do is visit a vintage fashion shop, choose the dress, take it out for dry cleaning, and wrap in kraft paper.
VINTAGE LOVE LETTERS – Maybe someone you know is fond of writing letters on fine stationary. You can go to kindnotes for customized stationary to make your gift more special or just choose from any of our designs.
VINTAGE TEA SETS – These are the perfect gift for moms! Its timeless and classic pieces make for a lovely companion in the afternoons when all she wants to do is rest and drink tea.
Giving gifts with a vintage vibe is a great trend that makes gift giving such an exciting thing to do!
