Thanks to email and the Internet machine you’re currently on, letter writing has become something of a lost art form. But fashion editor Derek Blasberg (pictured with cat!) is about to change all that. Blasberg created the Handwritten Letter Helper, a kit to get you back in the writing game. It comes complete with several different form letters (True Love, Thinking of You, Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, Thank You, Let’s Celebrate, Congratulations, It’s Baby Time) that can be customized and kitted out. And Blasberg’s letter writing tips: “Do your best to write clearly, or else you’ll look like a serial killer.

And always make sure you have enough postage or else all this handwork will be for naught.” So grab a pen, practice your penmanship, and get back in the correspondence game. [$24, Opening Ceremony]
