Put your stamp on your stuff this year. From a clutch to tuck under your arm for an evening out, to a single letter pillow for your bed ensemble, these ideas will inspire you to spell it out.

I discovered these amazing custom return address stamps from Brookyn's Paperfinger while perusing the holiday Cool Hunting Pop Up Shop with the Gap. Bryn Chernoff started the stamp line to offer a custom and handmade calligraphy look to an easy to use stamp. These are a great alternative to a paper label and look as though you give and love and attention to every letter you send.

You can also add a border to your address, for even more flair.

Chose from one, two or three letters on these napkins from Emerson Made that fit perfectly into the rustic chic movement. Great for everyday use and bistro settings.

With the winter freeze in full swing, keep yourself warm with a felted wool monogram clutch from LA Plates. Choose any thread color for your monogram. This cutie is on my Happy New Year to me list.

A single letter says it all, and makes a great bridal shower gift. Jonathan Adler's baby Alpaca Pink Junior Letter Pillow with a simple border adds new life to a bed or side chair.
