Great Host and Hostess Gifts that Get You Invited Back!

Felix Doolittle Illustrated Stationery and Gifts

Summer is the time for trips near and far to visit friends and family. Bringing along a unique gift is a way of expressing your gratitude that lasts beyond your stay and reminds your guests of the good times you shared together.  


Felix Doolittle Art Prints are a popular choice at our brick and mortar store, The Paper Mouse. The color and printing of the prints is exquisite and delicious!  Purchase a simple frame and it's ready to add color and style to the bedroom you stayed in or another room in the house. Watercolor Art Print by Felix Doolittle

2. Oval Paperweights

Paperweights can be a really unique gift when it's personalized. Choose an illustration that relates to something you did together, (peach picking??) and then be creative when you're thinking of the personalization. Of course you can use the family's name, or try using the name of the house your visiting, or the beach, ocean, lake, or region. Maybe there are fun phrases that have become synonymous with the home and your guests that will elicit smiles for seasons to come.
