15 Stationery Sets That Are Beyond Cute, Because Snail Mail Is Still the Best

Twitter, texting, and e-mail may be a tad more convenient than writing out heartfelt notes on ultra cute stationery, but nothing compares to receiving a piece of good old fashioned snail mail. You know, something somebody actually took the time to pick out, scribble on, and buy a postage stamp for. Don't let this personalized communication form die out — after all, there are too many awesome stationery sets to let that happen. Here are some of the coolest, because snail mail is still the best.
