Hey y’all. I want to share with you my favorite gift to send to friends in the mail. I spotted these awesome polaroid cards in Urban Outfitters last year and have been smitten ever since. They’re adorable little notecards with polaroid-shaped envelopes to mail off! The photography is to die for and these cards just scream summer to me. I love sending birthday wishes or just letting a friend know that I have been thinking of them and these cards capture my moods perfectly.
Jenifer Altman, Amanda Gilligan, and Susannah Conway are the brains behind it all and they teamed up with Chronicle last year to produce TWO(!) sets of polaroid notes as well as a book. Instant Love is available in bookstores and online. I just picked it up and have been buried in the pages. I’m such a sucker for polaroids. I guess that’s why I gravitate towards crazy photo-editing apps like Instagram. I’m an addict, I guess.
ANYWAY – you have to track these little notecards down and add them to your “too-pretty-to-ever-actually-use” collection.
