I donâ€™t know about you but I feel like the holidays has snuck up on me out of nowhere. Like, really? Are we a week out from Christmas already? I had so many plans to bake all sorts of goodies, visit friends, write holiday cards (okay, this is done - I just need to go buy some stamps!) and binge watch Christmas movies with Jack. I know I have plenty of time to do that over the holidays but I honestly canâ€™t believe we are already here.
In the spirit of a holiday rescue, I partnered up with the lovely people at PAPYRUSÂ to share some of the great goodies they have in store that can rescue your holiday. Many of the products are part of PAPYRUSâ€™ in-house collection and make a perfect gift for any scenario you find yourself in. From hostess gifts to a last-minute present for a beloved teacher or simply a Secret Santa gift for the last day of work, PAPYRUS has you covered.Â Marcel Schurman is one-half of the husband-and-wife team that founded PAPYRUS in 1950,Â inspired by a love of fine art and a vision forÂ products of uncompromising quality that provided the starting pointÂ for genuine personal connections. The Marcel Schurman line was theÂ first collection created by PAPYRUS 65 years ago, and the brand wasÂ recently resurrected by PAPYRUS and expanded to include boxedÂ stationery, wrapping paper, and gift bags.
I got to work writing down some of my ideas for the holiday season as well asÂ working on my Christmas cards. Oh, and I ate a bunch of cookies too.
PAPYRUS North Pole Collection Snowman Plates (set ofÂ 2),$17.95:Â I love thisÂ snowman and snowflake set of appetizer plates. They are so perfect for little snacks or appetizers (or in my case cookies and bon-bons) and would also make a great gift!
Marcel Schurman Berry Wreath Boxed CardsÂ (set of 6), $18.95: Who wouldnâ€™t want to receive such darling cards in their mailbox?!Â This cozy letterpress holiday card set pairs a minimalist birch woodÂ pattern with a bright berry wreath in a design that feels rusticÂ yet refined. Each card is printed on 100% pure cotton rag paperÂ with soy based inks.
Marcel Schurman Merry & Bouquet Small Gift Bags,Â (set of 2), $9.95:Â I can always use more gift wrapping and these little bags from the Marcel Schurman collection are just darling.Â Fun sprigs of greenery with foil accents adorn one bag while itsÂ coordinating bag reads, “Merry & Bright” on gold foil, makingÂ this set of bags elegant for the holidays.

PAPYRUS Precious Metals Fine Tip MetallicÂ Markers,Â $9.95: I remember when I was a kid and my Mom would write beautiful Christmas cards with her fancy gold and silver pens - these bring back great memories.Â Two deco style felt tip markers, one in silver, the other in gold,Â make writing and making art extra enjoyable.
