One of the most exciting finds I’ve discovered at my favorite crafts store is a wax seal stamp kit. I think this is the perfect touch to send out Christmas cards or just send out thank you notes. Today, so much is done over e-mail or text. But I think letter writing and sending cards is a lost art. I think it is an art that needs to be preserved and a wax seal stamp can really give anything you send a great touch.
For real authenticity, I recommend shopping around for a wax stamp of quality. The one I found was actually imported from Italy. It is made out of ceramic and has a stamp with the letter of my last name etched in it. Wax stamp kits come with the wax and the stamp. They can be elaborate – some have glass handles for example, so they also make a wonderful and thoughtful gift.
You can also get stamps in a variety of designs like butterflies or some other motive. Of course, you can get wax in different colors but I think for holiday greetings nothing says class more than an stamp with your initial on the front of the envelope.
