People love to see their name in "fancy writing" or beautiful calligraphy. I've been to lots of homes and seen hand calligraphy wedding invitation envelopes held up with magnets on their refrigerator doors! Even with computer fonts that "look like" calligraphy, people can still tell the difference between the printed computer lettering and real handwritten calligraphy.
So, when you are looking for a unique gift idea for someone special, consider how long the gift of a handwritten poem, quote or other calligraphy gift will continue to please your recipient. And give yourself a gift! Don't YOU have a special quote – maybe an inspirational or motivational quote that you have on the wall near your desk. Get something that reminds you of what's important in life! When it's written in hand done calligraphy, you will not only be able to read it, but have "Words To Live By".
Remember, the holidays are coming up!
