How I went about making the most gift-worthy notebooks of all time!

floral hardcover notebooks are the perfect Etsy gift ideas for her

I don't mess around as a small shop owner. When I make a new product, I spend hours (more like weeks and even months) sourcing manufacturers for each product. I am well aware that Target has adorable notebooks you could add to your cart for about $10. So when you choose to shop small, I want to make sure you feel it's absolutely worth the splurge. 
I recently added these floral hardback notebooks to my shop. They were a serious labor of love. Can we just take a moment to swoon? 
These babies are BUILT for gift-giving. Or gift-keeping, if you need one for yourself. When I was designing these, I wanted them to be a real workhorse of a notebook, and pretty to boot. Here's why they get the job done: 
  • They're large and in charge. Whether your best friend is building the Essential Oil Empire of her dreams or killing it at medical school, these books are big enough to handle it. They're large books (8.5x11 inches) with 100 lined pages inside. 
  • They're built to last. The soft-touch matte coating on the covers makes these easy to wipe down with a damp rag, whether you're cleaning up baby drool or spilled tomato soup. Plus the hard covers resist crumpling, so if your cat sits on your work (AGAIN), your notebook will still look as good as new. And oh, were you wondering about the paper inside? It's a thick white 100# paper that beats a standard notebook by a mile.
  • They're seriously pretty. If you know a stationery addict or bullet journaler, these notebooks are the perfect gift. Your stationery-loving friend has already seen everything at Rifle Paper Co., Sugar Paper LA, MochiThings, and Target. She's already spent hours sifting through Etsy. You can surprise her with something fresh and new from an Indie brand she's never heard of. These notebooks are currently available in 4 cover designs: two floral patterns because #floralsforever, a greenery pattern for all the Plant Ladies in your life, and an abstract watercolor pattern for the artsy girl. Every cover has a gold foil stamp pressed into it for a touch of shine. 

Can you tell my obsession is real? I've spent many long hours making these into the absolute best notebook gifts for your besties (or yourself!) Click here to shop now!
