If you’re stuck for gifts this Christmas or just panicking about last minute shopping then stationery would make a great present – who doesn’t love the appeal of an empty notebook with crisp clean pages and sets of pens ready to scribble away.
Below we’ve found some stylish brands to help make your Christmas shopping a little easier …
Fox & Star
This is an online indie stationery brand, inspired by Asian designs, that sells a wide range of kitsch office accessories – and a washi tape selection to be jealous of! Their gorgeous notebooks (£10.99), covered with inspirational quotes and patterned paper, would make a fabulous gift this Christmas and some metallic patterned washi tape (£2.75) will make wrapping up even more fun.
The Journal Shop
Another online retailer, The Journal Shop, has literally everything you could need or desire when it comes to stationery. They stock a wide range of small brands that sell unique items. Midori, a Japanese brand, will provide you with all the cute stocking fillers you could need. From penguin-shaped paper clips (£5.99), to cat flashcards (£3) – all perfect for little gifts or secret santa presents. If you have a bigger budget, you could give a Gallery Leather notebook (£20). These luxury items, with a timeless design, would be great to give to any stationery enthusiast.
Paperchase is a firm favourite brand and for good reason. Their winter collection, titled Dark Romance, sees a beautiful floral design cover notebooks, pens, mugs, bags and much more. The fabric covered 2015 diary (£12) is particularly lovely and would make a great gift for a friend who needs a help getting organised.
