Christmas day is SO soon upon us now. I, for one, couldn’t be more excited. I love nothing more than spoiling my family with gifts. It doesn’t hurt getting a few in return. I’ll admit I’m pretty materialistic at times and love cute trinkets and fun stationery.
For anyone who’s shopping for the stationery lover in their life, I’ve put together a quick easy list of 10 of my favorite stationery items that I know I would love to receive – even the ones I already have!
Great for coloring or just as your favorite pen, these come in packs of all shapes and sizes. They can be pricy, but worth it. They get my top vote for favorite pen. Ink Joy gel pens are a close second.
The Leuchtturm1917 books are pricy but amazing quality. You can find simple dotted notebooks all over the place now. They are so fun for creative personalities. They are used often for bullet journalling. If they’re a stationery lover though, they’ll love any cute notebook.
Fun Sticky Notes
I got the adorable coffee and donut Post-Its above at Staples.
I hope this gives you a few fun ideas for all the stationery junkies in your life. Even if it’s just yourself.
Tell me in the comments – What’s your favorite stationery item?
I’m a mom to two young girls (6 and 1) and my nephew has recently started living with us (age 9). I work a very busy full-time job as the front desk supervisor for a seasonal resort. My drive to and from work is 45 minutes each way.
I opened my Etsy shop about a year ago. At the time I had a newborn baby and was returning to work in a few months. But I was so in love with all things planner related that my shop wasn’t work. I enjoyed finding adorable washi and pens to add to my shop. I love designing stickers. There were days where I had to force myself to go down to my office and work, but often I was excited about it.
My shop is still relatively small and doesn’t bring in any big money, but it brings in enough to make it worth it for me.
Things I’ve done this weekend to help my Etsy shop along:
Printed 50 Christmas sticker samples that I’m donating to another shop’s holiday box.
Printed 20 hand drawn sticker samples that I’m swapping with another shop as part of the Great Canadian Planner Sale Fall Spooktacular.
Got some happy mail ready for some of my planner buddies.
Organized some of my washi stock.
Browsed Instagram for planner inspiration & happiness
