Gift Ideas for Friends Who Love Nostalgia

Do you have any friends that love antiques or collectables? If so, Writer's Bloc has a good selection of gifts that will evoke pleasant memories of days gone by. 

Some of my favorite childhood memories are the many colorful illustrated storybooks that I used to read over and over again. Art Deco 7321 has cleverly incorporated illustrations from classic storybooks into their planners and notebooks. One of my favorites is this Alice's Undated Planner that looks like a well-worn copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. This planner even includes an ink pad and alphabet stamps to spice up the contents of your journal.

Whimsical illustrations from Antoine de Saint Exupery's novella Le Petit Prince decorate the pages of Art Deco 7321's Le Petit Prince Small Notebook No. 1 as well as this adorable Le Petit Prince pen & pencil case.

The Ship Credit Card Wallet from Lamb-Lamb has a Victorian era feel to it with lace, roses, forget-me-nots and sailing ship cover design. The small size of this wallet makes it a convenient way to carry your credit cards, ID, membership cards, business cards and more.

The Kaweco Sport Fountain Pen has been produced with the same basic design for over 50 years. Perhaps your grandparents even used this pen! "Sport" pens have a screw on cap that makes them ideal for carrying in a pocket, but they post at a good length for writing. What a great way to complement the gift of a planner or journal with a nostalgic design.
