• The Hudson Paperie on Washington Street {Stationery and Gifts}

    Written by:

    There’s nothing like a handwritten note or a letter in the mail that makes you feel warm and fuzzy. The thoughtfulness that goes into the details of a gift that is carefully purchased doesn’t go unnoticed, and that’s why when a shop like Hudson Paperie pops up, you want to frequent it as much as possible. If you have been in Hoboken for a few years, you probably remember the shop Yes I Do, located at 312 Washington Street — which has reopened as Hudson Paperie several months ago {with a similar concept — but also VERY [in a good way!] different}.

    When you walk into Hudson Paperie for a gift or greeting card — especially in a rush — you’re in luck. The shop now has gift items that range from bachelorette party supplies and wedding presents to first birthday and christening gifts.

    ^So cute! 

    Their card selection is quite extensive, and it was fun to explore it and read the cheeky sayings. Many of the cards are made by the famous Greenwich Letterpress in NYC — which if you’ve been to, you know if the real deal when it comes to stationery. And yes, grammar police says it’s stationEry, just FYI {huge pet peeve = stationAry means you’re not moving anywhere}.

    There are also locally-made greeting cards by various artists…which you know we love.

    #ShopLocal all day ‘err day!

    While the owner did take over the old Yes I Do shop, and it is a similar layout, you can tell that she really planned out the feng shui of the store and added some fun features — and the selection has been majorly updated {think: no more Vera Bradley #yeswesaidit}. The boutique is definitely more organized {by type of event or gift}, and there are some chic additions to the selections of gifts including Kate Spade and other top brands.
