holiday gift guide | pen & paper (and a little contest!)

Call me a geek but there’s something about office supplies that I just love, quite possibly adore. If you ever coveted a notebook or a pen, you know what I’m talking about. In that case I’m sure there’s at least one gift that is perfect for you when browsing today’s holiday gift guide: pen & paper.

1. Graphic notepad $9 via Rifle Paper Co.
2. Dachshund Letter Holder £28 via Anthropologie
3. Bunny Paperclip Dispenser €12.50 via Lola Life Lines
4. 2015 Planner $25 via A Beautiful Mess
5. Marble Blank Notebook $32 via Poketo
6. Desk chalkboard €16.75 Serax via Bietini Design
7. STMT x Croatia Kit $21 via Rad and Hungry
8. Clipboard €3.99 via IKEA

I admit: I had a hard time putting together this guide. A hard time as in keeping my credit card far, far away. Four items on this list are already to be found (or almost) around my house: the notepad from Rifle Paper Co. which I got at Urbanic earlier this summer makes to-do lists so pretty and actually more fun to do! That 2015 planner? Rather impatiently waiting for this one to arrive on my doorstep. I will keep my Google calendar, but this planner will serve as a more detailed calendar. The IKEA clipboard? Check. That leaves one item which I can’t disclose for now as it is wrapped as a Christmas gift, for me. If you want to take a guess, just leave a comment below and I might surprise one of you with a notebook out of my much-coveted collection.

Entries for the notebook-contest are accepted until Christmas Day (I’ll make it easy on you and won’t include a time zone here). Good luck! Sorry, notebook does not come with Ryan Gosling.

    L.O.V.E the marble! <3 ok ik heb gewoon een marmer-obsessie tout court! En verdorie, is het iets vrouwelijk? Zo'n stationary-addiction? Ik durf mijn lege te gebruiken notebooks zelfs niet meer tellen.

    Wauw hele mooie keuzes weer. Dat marmer, dat Serax krijtbordje… I love it! Ik heb een planner voor 2015 besteld met motivational quotes and goals erin, can. not. wait. for 2015!

    Ik probeer die webshops zo weinig mogelijk te openen .. Enkel Bietini Design kende ik niet, dus dat is er nu nog eentje extra om te proberen vermijden 😉

    Die marble notebooks zijn zooo geweldig… Ik ga meteen raden dat die in het pakje zitten!

  5. […] I actually came up with the idea of this gift guide while hunting down the best gift ideas for the pen & paper gift guide. It occurred to me that a lot of these items had to do with travel, hence this wanderlust gift […]
