Matchboxes are a gift and stationery category that’s trending up, and it’s easy to see why. Affordable and functional, they pack a big design punch at a palm size. They spread both light and love — and those from J. Falkner are at the top of their sizzling hot class!
This quartet of luxury matchboxes are a joint venture with its J. Falkner’s UK partner, Archivist, and are now available for the first time in the U.S. A bit oversized at 4 1/4″ square and 1″ thick, they make a great little holiday gift or add-on.
“Actually, they’ve become my fail-safe hostess present: wrap one in a bright red bow, and you’re good to go!” Jason Arbuckle, J. Falkner’s Creative Director and Founder, laughed. “Or combine them with a holiday candle if you want to really push the boat out.”
Two of the designs — Peace Love Dove & Christmas tree, have just the right amount of gold foil pop, while who can resist a dachshund standing in for Rudolph? Mint green is so delightful with red! The category has been so hot, there’s even a new design in anticipation of Valentine’s Day. The swirling Love heart matchbox will definitely catch the eye of your crush during the holiday season — or any time of year for that matter. These boxes are so popular that J. Falkner’s wholesale partners have been scooping them up “almost faster than we can supply then,” Jason told me. “We’re now on our third re-order from the UK!”
