Help me find a quirky and not too expensive hotel in Stockholm.

I'm heading with my partner to Stockholm for a long weekend in June and would love recommendations for a place to stay. We'd like to stay somewhere that won't break the bank but also a bit individual and quirky. For example, I stayed in the CitzenM hotel in Glasgow recently and loved it - it was boutique but at a budget conscious £70-90 per night. I am guessing Stockholm will be a bit pricer than Glasgow so happy to pay a bit more, but that's the sort of place I am looking for. TIA!

Looking for a quiet, unspoiled beach holiday in the US

Beautiful, quiet sandy beaches on the east coast or gulf coast of the US for a holiday next summer? Cottages with hammocks are preferable to condos or hotels. Basically I'm looking for the exact opposite of places like Myrtle Beach. Proximity (as in an hour's drive or less) to a culturally interesting city like New Orleans or Charleston is a definite bonus.

Phone or Web app to track sending/receiving of holiday cards?

Is there either a Web site or an app for iPhone or iPad that allows you to track the sending and receiving of holiday cards? (If not, there should be!) I see apps that allow you to send e-cards, but I'm sending paper cards. I would love to be able to open my mail, phone in hand, and just type into the phone that I received cards from X, Y and Z so I know to send them cards as well. Not finding anything. I've done this on paper for years, but it seems like someone should have made an electronic easy version by now.
