  8. The Art of the Handwritten Note

    As candy cane season approaches, the time to reach out to loved ones with warm wishes is also near. While technology makes it easy to keep in touch, nothing really says ‘I love you’ like a thoughtful, handwritten letter.

     

    With the U.S Postal Service reporting a 10 billion letter drop in the last 20 years, there’s no question that our gadgets have made it easier to keep in touch – but that doesn’t mean we should swap out the keyboard for a card. (Pro tip: Need help finding the perfect holiday card to accompany your message? We’ve got you covered!)

     

    The art of a handwritten letter honors traditions of the past and serves as a timeless memento to the present. Here are the top five reasons why you should put pen to (really pretty) paper this holiday season.
