Emily McDowell is one of my all-time favorite designers of clever cards and gifts. I am lucky to have met her at her debut at the National Stationery Show several years ago, and her business has really taken off since then (in fact I’m sure you recognize her products from many stores now). It’s always a treat to see her newest releases at NSS each May. Here were some of my favorite picks from the show which was held 3 months ago at the Javits Center. The “active bitch face” magnet is fantastic–I plan on buying several of those as small holiday gifts. You can browse these and other products (everything from pouches to pins to prints) at Emily McDowell.
