Have you noticed something different about some men recently?  People are nodding their heads everywhere because it's Movember! 

As you may know, Movember is an annual, month long event in November where millions of men across the country grow mustaches to raise awareness and money for prostate cancer and other men's cancer charities. Big or small, full or thin, men are growing mustaches to change the face of men's heath.  "Mo Bros" and "Mo Sistas," it's a huge movement. 

At More Than Paper, we have dozens of products with mustaches that support this trend.  From this handy desktop calendar ... 

Desktop Calendars (Mustache of the Month)

to custom, self-inking stampers with a mustache theme.  

Noteworthy Collections - Custom Self-Inking Address Stampers (Mustache Square) (NS-454)

We even have cute mustache monogram stationery, too!  There are mustaches everywhere at More Than Paper

Find out how you can participate by growing a mustache or donating at Start a team, recruit members, land donations, and earn prizes.  The Movember website is full of interesting facts about men's health and how you can get involved and make a difference!  We absolutely loved the "Gen Mo" (Generation Mustache) Style Guide.  Which is your favorite style?

Goil Foil Stationery Trend

Sometimes a trend is not really a trend at all, but a timeless classic that has a sudden resurgence in popularity or has been updated with a fresh new look. Such is the case with the stationery trend we are seeing this 2013 holiday season-- gold foil.   Or more specifically, the gold foil effect.  Many stationery designers are using cool design techniques to replicate the gold foil look digitally, making it more affordable.  

This season, we are also seeing a combination of digital printing and foil stamping on holiday photo cards.  Adding foil stamping can make an ordinary digital holiday card more upscale and special.  At More Than Paper, we offer a variety of greeting cards and stationery with both gold foil printing and gold foil effect.   So whatever your budget, we have a gold foil look for you!

Shop hundreds of holiday card styles for every trend at More Than Paper.

Ideas for setting your Thanksgiving table

For those who love to entertain, Thanksgiving is the king of all entertaining holidays!  There are days of prep work, an extensive menu, and lots of fun ways to decorate.  At More Than Paper, we have some great ideas for setting your Thanksgiving table for those that really embrace this holiday. 

1.  Investing in a set of 10 or 12 personalized placemats for Thanksgiving makes a lot of sense for those that host this holiday every year.  The personalized placemats add a fun touch to the table and make it even more special.   They easily wipe clean and store easily. 

2.  Coordinating personalized bowls for soup and salad look great with your placemats. 

3. We found this rooster table runner at Pier 1 that can work for the season or all year round. 

4.  More Than Paper has a great selection of blank stock paper for the season, like this one with autumn leaves.  On one of our favorite crafty blogs, Lil'Luna, Krysten is sharing FREE THANKSGIVING Printables!  Print out a coloring page onto one of  More Than Paper's blank stock paper designs and place it with some crayons on the table for the kids. 

5. These gold napkin rings, also found at Pier 1, add a sophisticated touch to your table. 

6.  Mercury gold votive candles are hot right now!  They look great on any table, Thanksgiving or otherwise. 

7. We love this subway art found on Etsy.  It's an inexpensive piece of artwork that can go in a frame for the season.  Add it to the table or food buffet. 

8.  Popular party blog Catch My Party has a set of free thanksgiving printables.  We love the drink straws and "I'm thankful for..." cards.  Add a card to each place setting and have guests write down what they are thankful for!  It is a great way to stimulate dinner conversation. 

9. & 10.  We found these cupcakes and think they'd look great packaged in a treat bag with a personalized sticker as a take home treat for later!  We know there's a lot of pie to be eaten, but the day after Thanksgiving, a nice treat sounds perfect to us.  (Especially if all the pie is gone!) 

What are your ideas for setting the Thanksgiving table?

Desktop Calendars

Do you or someone you know often ask, "What day is it?"  A handy desktop calendar keeps everyone on track and looks great on anyone's desk.  We love these non-personalized desktop calendars by Stacy Claire Boyd.   Stock up on them for the holidays and have them on hand to give as last minute gifts.  They're great for a hostess gift or stocking stuffers for the organized family member. 

Desktop Calendars by Stacy Claire Boyd

The calendar and pages come with an easel for your desk and the package is just $40.00 (refill pages are $22.00 per set.)   The trendy background patterns look great all year round and make a bold statement on your desk.  You can also check out the other great desktop calendars by Stacy Claire Boyd and others here.

More Than Paper has recently added a bunch of very cool desktop calendars. We also love this one which is letterpressed (a classic technique in paper that is very trendy right now!) When the month is over, don't throw them out, this one can be torn up and planted in the ground.  Daises will sprout!  This is a wonderful eco-friendly gift that everyone is sure to love.

Housewarming Gifts

Do you remember the first house you bought?  We do.  Moving into a new space, making it yours, and turning a house into a home is such an exciting time in life.  When a friend or family member makes that major investment,  More Than Paper suggests sending or bringing a personalized gift!  We have a variety of housewarming gift ideas they'll love and keep forever.  Because it's those personal touches that transform a house to make it unique. 

1) We love these stemless wine glasses. They don't break as easily as traditional wine glasses do and are perfectly on trend.  2) Personalized wall art makes a statement that will be a treasured keepsake.   3) We can't get enough of all the new pillow designs by Checkerboard and Devora Designs.  This personalized pillow by Checkerboard looks great on anyone's couch!  4) They'll love to cozy up this winter with a personalized throw blanket.  It's a luxe gift that people love.  5) Give the gift of beautiful, luxurious stationery for the paper lover, a sample shown here by Prints Charming. 6) A monogrammed candle looks great in the kitchen, library, or as an extra touch to a guest bathroom. 

These home decor items also make great hostess gifts, especially during the holiday season. So what is your favorite housewarming or hostess gift to give or to receive?
