When it comes to gifts, for me, it’s all about the package — and the packaging, which is perhaps why I adore Knot & Bow so. Every component for the smartest gifts in town can be culled from this purveyor’s carefully curated collection of modern, nostalgic paper goods and supplies.
100% recycled kraft and black kraft papers are an unexpected yet appealing starting point. Just $10 gets you a 60-square-foot roll.
Instead of tape, try sealing boxes with heart stickers on their undersides. $4/36 stickers.
You can also buy parcel cardstock tags in boxed sets of 30 featuring three complementary colors ($10) or in a single-colored pack of 10 ($4). There are also sets of twine & tags.
It’s clear that the line is inspired by uncomplicated, old school presentations — a sandwich wrapped in simple brown butcher paper or a fresh cake from the bakery bound with twine. Everything is handmade, designed in house, or procured from time-honored, quality manufacturers, and made in America whenever possible.
Knot & Bow will also be at National Stationery Show, Booth 1850. I know I’m looking forward to fighting the crowds to see all their latest wares!
