So here’s the second of my last min gift guides! And basically if you know anyone that likes to basically collect about fifty notebooks and not write in one of them then this guide will be perfect! I’ve recently started to get into stationery more and more – mainly because it makes good blog props- yep I’m that fickle, but actually as I do like to be organised and have a nice notebook at work too, and maybe there comes a time in life when a free branded pen doesn’t quite cut it!


Forever my obsession I am a sucker for a fab notebook. My most recent ones were these cat ones from Paperchase. I love this whole range as I feel it was just made for me and fellow cat and stationery lovers alike. Oh and even cats it seems- Poppy was quite taken with it all!

If you were looking for something less catty then these Made By Mrs M ones may be just the ticket! Mine are older Sheffield inspired prints, but there’s also Croydon and London inspired prints as well as a few new Sheffield inspired ones too.

Others I love include this Ohh Deer one from ASOS (similar here) and these Pusheen ones from Marks and Spencer.


If the person you’re buying for actually writes in notebooks then they may be ready to take the next step to Planner Lyf. I’ve just got my first one from paperchase to give it a go! I’ve been using personal planners organsiers for my blog for the past 2 years and I love them so thought I would try a more total life one. I’ve started off steady with this beauty from Paperchase £18.


A Facebook friend of mine has the cutest shop on Etsy with lots of kitsch pens and I love the gem pen in there! I’ll be treating myself to it with my Christmas money I think as the shop is now closed for Christmas. If you do want a fab pen before Christmas then try Paperchase, I love this cat pen (obvs).

Also I had to do a special shout out to Skinnydip who have recently launched a new stationery collection and I WANT IT ALL.
I’m now off to plan alll the inserts and things I can add to my planner ready for 2017, let me know if this guide has helped at all!
