Standard Notes as a Holiday Gift

December 17, 2020

A subscription to Standard Notes Extended is a wonderful and thoughtful gift for your friends, family, colleagues, and loved ones. The reasons are simple: you can use it to write about almost anything, anywhere, anytime, and for as long as you want. It’s hard to find a gift so versatile, flexible, rugged, and yet affordable. Let’s look at these reasons in more detail:


Standard Notes Extended comes with a full suite of Markdown, code, and rich text editors, so you and your loved ones can write about almost anything you want. It’s easy to make lists for simple and habitual tasks like buying groceries and working out, and you can store data that doesn’t change often, such as secrets for two-factor authentication. Standard Notes has built-in end-to-end encryption, which means that your colleagues can store confidential, work-related information and your friends and family can keep private journals of fun and intimate moments.

Standard Notes is secured with modern encryption, but it’s still easy to share your notes when you want to. Extended comes with an Action Bar that makes it easy to copy your note, save it to a file, or email it directly to your friends, family, and colleagues. Standard Notes is integrated with Listed, a simple and popular blogging platform, so it’s easy to blog with a custom domain and publish to private links.


Standard Notes works on all major operating systems, so you can take your notes with you wherever you bring your devices. You can read and add to your notes from your computers at home, work, and school or while traveling on the subway, at an airport, or in a cafe. You can even take your notes with you to the bathtub or pool if your devices allow it.

The Folders and Tags system in Extended is intuitive and powerful, so you can organize your notes to best suit your needs. With four dark themes and two light themes, Standard Notes is useful when working late into the night as well as throughout the day. The No Distraction theme makes it easier for you to focus on what matters: your thoughts and your content.


The design of Standard Notes is, in one word, rugged. The apps are built for the long haul. They are sleek, slim, and built for longevity. Standard Notes Extended provides automated daily backups to your email, Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive -- providers that you already know and use. The built-in Note History feature lets you revert your notes back to previous versions without a hassle. Notes are stored in plain text, making them easy to export and read without special software.

It’s a Great Deal

There are many reasons to give someone a gift, but the best gifts are usually thoughtful ones. Sometimes, we choose a gift because we have a good idea that it is what the recipient wants. Other times, we choose a gift because we think it will make them happy or improve their life. A subscription to Standard Notes is one of those gifts.

Standard Notes is a safe and reliable place to store thoughts, notes, and information. It is simple, useful, and built to last. A 5-year subscription to Standard Notes means that your gift will last for at least five years. Using it over time can provide benefits that last much longer. It’s a great deal. Treat yourself and treat your loved ones. Get a subscription to Standard Notes.
