It’s National Stationery Week - the perfect excuse to pimp up your workstation with the loveliest stationery and desk accessories.
GOLD AND GORGEOUS
Oooh shiny! Slim, elegant, inspirational – but enough about me, just check out this pack of four pens with ‘go get em’ slogans from the brilliant Anthropologie.
Paint it or post it?
Oooh, how satisfying are these to look at? Forget the old neon post-its of old – these Paperways sticky notes come a Dulux-worthy array of colours, but this Before Sunset set is our favourite. Available from Selfridges.
Spell it out
Been in lockdown so long you’ve forgotten your own name? Here, buy one of these stylish, graphic monogram journals by Clare V. for Anthropologie and give yourself a clue.
Got a plan
Time to get organised – keep on top of the (ever-growing) to-do list with this colourful A4 desk planner from Bucks-based biz, Duke and Rabbit.
More fun than Mont Blanc and prettier than Parker, there’s no missing these day-glo fountain pens from heritage pen brand (that’s a thing) Kaweco.
Paper clip pooches
If you’re going to work, you might as well have fun doing it. These sausage dog paperclips from Oliver Bonas are almost too cute to use.
£5.50 for five.
Not lucky enough to have a room with a view? This sleek concrete desk planter provides your own desktop garden. Available from Not-Another-Bill.
The prettiest pencil case EVER
A steal from WHSmith, this cream soda-striped pencil case mimics this seasons Kensington bag by Kurt Geiger but with a more attractive price point.
The perfect desk accessory – these vibrant, tactile hour glasses from The Journal Shop make it absolutely imperative to stretch, step away and, um, read a magazine, every 60 minutes.
With its curves, angles and oversized lightbulb, this desk lamp from Oliver Bonas will brighten up any desk and mood.
OK let’s do this
This chirpy journal from Oxfordshire lifestyle store Feather & Nest will get you motivated in the morning, we swear it.
