I’m a sucker for a beautifully designed or really original greetings card – a passion that Mr B and I both share.
Romantic love notes to each other hidden in a lunchbox or under a pillow, just ‘because’, have somewhat dwindled over the past few years thanks to parenthood and the distinctly unromantic realisms of joint bank accounts/picking up each other's dirty underwear /debates over which potato type to buy in Tesco's but we still find time on the big occasions (and surprise moments in between) to buy cards for one another and I love nothing better than receiving a handwritten token of friendship - it’s still the most thoughtful and personal way in which to show someone you care, says me.
I’ve picked out some of my favourite stationery designers:
