While a bottle of her favorite Champagne is never inappropriate, we like to think it’s not the only gift your Thanksgiving Day host will adore. Here are a few we like to think will get you the last slice of pumpkin pie. A la mode, of course.

- The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
There’s no doubt we’ve enjoyed our fair share of sunshine and frozen treats this summer. However, we can honestly say that we’re ready to welcome crisp weather and leather boots back into our lives. The first day of fall is tomorrow, and with a new season comes new stationery.
Take a look at what we’ll be writing on when we trade ice cream for apple cider…
“In celebration of my favorite fall holiday with a little show of elegance” — Jeri, Online Product Manager
As a 211-year-old American company, one of our favorite holidays of the year is certainly Labor Day. Created to celebrate all of the hard work our labor force has done for this country, Labor Day is rightfully a time to kick back, relax and, well, not labor at all.
So in honor of backyard barbeques, the coldest of beverages and a game of horseshoes or two, here are our favorite stationery picks that remind us of less work and more play.
Get in a morning match or two with friends before temperatures begin to soar. Winner gets the first mimosa…
Or perhaps a sunrise ride, when all is still quiet and the air is crisp and dewy, is the perfect start to a day off…
Grandparents Day is just around the corner (September 9th, to be exact), so in honor of Grammy, Pop-pop, Nana, Grampy and Mee-maw, here are our favorite gifts for the people who always seem to have an abundance of affection and baked goods ready when you arrive.
Bridge night. Cocktails at the Elk’s Lodge. Your birthday. For the grandparents with the oh so active social calendar, a personalized 2013 agenda is a perfect gift. Pencil in dinner reservations at their favorite restaurant — which you made ahead of time, of course — for an extra hug.
The grandchildren are always welcome — when Grammy and Pop-pop aren’t attending a social at the club or squeezing in 18 before Sunday brunch. They’re always in the market for a few good friends, and so calling cards would be a wonderfully welcome gift.
We’re so glad to see you! When the palm trees and popsicles heard you were coming, they jumped for joy, as you know how much they love when you visit every year. We hope you stay for awhile, and don’t forget to bring a swimsuit!
Love & Letters,
Crane & Co.

What he’s so good at: Fixing all things creaky & squeaky. Chip shots. The medium-well burger.

No worries. We’ve come up with a fine list of last-minute Father’s Day gifts.
- For the Host with the Most
Ah, the smell of freshly cut grass, mint julips and, well, that equine fragrance only a rider can love. The Kentucky Derby is this weekend, and we can’t wait to don our favorite hat, fresh from the milliner.
In celebration of all things equestrian, here are our few of our favorite Derby-inspired picks surely to land in your winner’s circle:
1) Leather iPad Sleeve in Dark Brown
The handsome leather of this iPad sleeve reminds us of a most prized saddle, only befitting of the fastest stallion. 4G on 4 legs, if you will.
We’re quite proud of the fact that our paper is 100% cotton, especially when Earth Day rolls around each year. So, while you should feel confident you’re doing a little something for the environment every time you purchase our stationery, we thought we’d select a handful of our favorite tree-friendly products just in time for one of our favorite holidays.
We can’t help but want to pack up our picnic basket on a sunny day and head to the nearest field when we see our ecru Dandelion Note featuring a delightful pop of yellow. With a sustainable bottle of wine and locally made Chevre, of course.
