This is incredibly important to me because when I was growing up, I could never find my name on anything in novelty gift shops.
Lurid, tacky signs boasting "every single name imaginable" on hideous plastic key-chains always proved to be consistently disappointing - a fact that I personally believe has given rise to my consequent battle with severe personalizophilia...
Yes. I am a personalizing-monster.
If I could get away with it without looking insane, everything I own would be stamped with either my name or face on it (or BOTH), because that's just how personalizophilia works, and I'm almost 100% certain this is a new medical disorder that nobody has discovered yet, which means I am an honest-to-goodness pioneer and if you take this away from me your teeth with fall out of your face.
Which brings me on to the somewhat-related subject of an amazing company called Rifle Paper Co.
Owned by Anna Bond and her husband Nathan, they do just about the most covet-able, adorable stationary I've ever seen.
I literally discovered them like a hot second ago but I'm already beyond obsessed.
