Valentine’s stationary is a staple for every girl who is in the know. The month of romance, roses and chocolate covered strawberries has snuck upon us once again. Valentine’s Day, the holiday you can express your mushy feelings and affection with it being completely acceptable. Remember being in grade school and you couldn’t wait to search for the best boxed Valentine’s cards at Target? Spending forever in the store searching for the perfect set of cards, hoping no one would arrive with a carbon copy of boxed cards. Inevitably, Susie Q would arrive to the school party with the exact same cards as you. Well luckily we have taken a shift from the cliche boxed Valentine cards, thanks to the booming stationary industry. Nothing is more meaningful than a personalized, handwritten letter to your loved one, whether that is your partner or your best gal friend. This Valentine’s Day, lets put those pens to work and share a thoughtful letter using stylish stationary to ensure a unique experience for the recipient. Below are the most trendy stationary boutiques in the OKC Metro. The two week countdown is on, so you better get to shopping. Oh and don’t forget to seal your card with a kiss!
