Of course you want to announce the birth of a wee one with style, or send out memorable birthday party invites for a toddler, or just send a personal note with panache. And with chic, charming designs from Palo Alto-based illustrated stationery house Lobird, your everyday correspondence become artistic keepsakes.

Founder Laurie Rohrbach was nicknamed “Lobird” by her father as a child, and has used her loves of travel and art to create a series of watercolor paintings that adorn Lobird products.  Browse the designs on her website to find an image that sums up your personality, be it quirky or sophisticated. When selecting Lobird stationery for your little one, pick an image that reminds you of your child’s favorite book or animal, or an adventure (real or imagined) that they’ve been on. The whimsical pictures are printed on heavy, high-quality card stock, but prices are still reasonable.

Lobird’s gift tags add a touch of your kid’s personality to every gift they bring to a party. And what better way to instill a love of writing thank-you notes than to give your child personalized note cards? Pick a theme to carry through from invitations to note cards, or let them mix and match—they’re likely to fall in love with more than one design! And while paper correspondence might seem “old-school” to 21st-century kids, they’ll appreciate that Lobird plants a tree for every order placed online. We’ll bet you’ll both be singing a happy tune about Lobird!
