Shopping for Christmas presents is my favourite part of festive prep so it was a no brainer to bring back my Gift Guide Series. Whoever you’re buying for this year, I hope my picks can help you get in the spirit and ease some stress along the way. To kick off the 2017 series, here are my top gifts for the stationery lovers in your life. Happy shopping!
- StudioSarah, Set of 3 Striped Notebooks – £20.00 – I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t love a brand new, untouched notebook. Seriously, there’s no joy like it (I’m only semi-joking). StudioSarah is a stationery brand I discovered this year and her designs are simply stunning. These gold foiled striped notebooks are pretty and professional so whether you’re buying for a student, a career-woman, or just an organisation-freak, these are a solid choice.
- Kate Spade, New York Initial Dipped Notebook – £16.00 – Personalised stationery is lovely at anytime of the year but especially nice at Christmas. Kate Spade never go wrong with stationery designs and this initial notebook is simple and chic. The dipped bottom is available in a few pastel colours so it’s worth a look even if teal isn’t your colour. These notebooks are a little more substantial so if you’re planning an event, want to get into journalling or like dedicating notebooks to certain purposes, this is an excellent option.
- StudioSarah, ‘Just A Little Note’ Set of 18 Cards – £35.00 – Letter-writing never goes out of fashion, and who doesn’t love receiving post? This StudioSarah note set is stunning and you get 18 in the pack. Writing sets make such lovely gifts for stationery-lovers and you could always get them a nice pen too.
- Quill London, Address book – £32.00 – In a world where Facebook serves are our event diary and so much of our planning is done online, getting a good ‘old-fashioned’ address book is refreshing. All of the Quill London books are beautifully designed so whatever style you’re looking for, they’re at the top of my list.
- Quill London, Scissors – £12.50 – Now I realise not everyone will have a need for fancy scissors but if you’re buying for someone who’s a little crafty, these are stunning. Quill London have again proven that functional items don’t need to be ugly. They make a great instagram prop for bloggers too!
- Papier, Merci Navy Personalised Stationery Set – From £1.09 – Personalised stationery – check. Letter writing – check. Thank you notes make such a lovely, thoughtful touch and with Papier’s personalisation, you can get your own drawn up at a reasonable cost. I love this ‘Merci’ design but they have no shortage of alternative options, so if you’re looking at personalised sets Papier is definitely worth a visit.
- Knot & Bow, 36 Heart Stickers – £3.95 – If you speak to any bullet-journal fans or scrapbookers and they’ll tell you that stickers aren’t just for kids. Knot & Bow have a fabulous stationery collection and their stickers are super cute. Whether you’re buying these as a stocking filler or as a way to spruce up your Christmas gift wrapping, you need to put them in your online basket now.
- Cath Kidston, Wells Rose Tube Pencil Case – £13.00 – Tube pencil cases make excellent gifts for all ages. They’re obviously great for pens and pencils but also as mini makeup bags, storage for makeup brushes and hair accessories. As with all Cath Kidston gifts, this is available in lots of different gorgeous prints but the grey and pink is my favourite.
- Orla Kiely, Magazine File – £15.00 – Nothing spruces up a home filing system like an Orla Kiely file. All of their prints are so bold and colourful, they make a lovely gift. You could put together a little stationery bundle to go with these files to make life admin a little more exciting.
- Papergang Subscription – From £10.95 – Subscription services make such wonderful Christmas gifts because the joy of Christmas gets to last even longer – what’s not to love? Papergang do gorgeous mixed bundles delivered monthly and you can choose how long you’d like to subscribe for.
- The 100-Day Happiness Planner – £20.00 – The Happiness Planner is THE prezzie for anyone partial to journalling and stationery. The format is already drawn up so you can follow the structure instead of having to devise the layout yourself and the planner is all about self-development, so it’s perfect for the new year.
