Here’s a Christmas Gift Guide For Stationary Enthusiasts

November 2, 2022 Share

Christmas is just round the corner, and it’s about time you start stocking up on stationary, pencil cases, notebooks and greeting cards galore.

A stationary shop is an adult’s version of the candy store – there are very few and far between that don’t get excited with the idea of a brand new notebook, a fountain pen or some creamy highlighters. This is precisely why we’re so excited about Smythson‘s new campaign, launching some of the most luxurious and exciting stationary products just in time to add them to our Christmas must-haves.

In the spirit of Christmas (which, without trying to freak you out entirely, we need to point out is less than two months away), DDW has compiled a stationary-geek gift guide of products to brighten up all of your friends and family’s stockings. From notebooks to pencil cases, the following are some of the most sophisticated, fun, quirky and classy gifts to start adding to your shopping lists in the upcoming winter season.

The Greeting Cards

It may come as a surprise to some but sending greeting cards for birthdays, Christmas, celebrations and all kinds of life events is in fact a very British tradition which is not very replicated in many other cultures. Even compared to those in which this ancient tradition persists, the Brits take it one step further, often displaying all of their cards atop the living room fireplace for everyone to see, and read. They become a part of the festivities, dotting living rooms in colourful congratulatory messages, mementos of love and the occasionally overly cheese wine-mum joke.

Gifts For Her

There’s always a touch of pride in pulling out a brand-new leather agenda during a meeting, or fishing our your passport gate inside a nile-blue cover at passport control. Investing in quality accessories, however, is often something at the very bottom of people’s list of priorities, making it a perfect thing to gift to others.

Innovative, quirky and practical, the following are some of our favourite gift ideas for her.
