Back to school: our favourite stationery for grown ups

Back to school: our favourite stationery for grown ups

Let’s face it, the back to school season (or back to the office for most) can be quite daunting: the days are shorter, colder and our September to do list can seem endless.

However, fear not! It’s not all bad news, as back to school means stationery shopping, and stationery shopping is the perfect antidote to those post-holiday blues. 

If you’re like us, we’re pretty sure you don’t need much convincing to buy pretty stationery but, in case you do, here are a few good reasons...

A new notebook or diary is like a fresh start. That crisp first page will instantly have you thinking about the possibilities and opportunities that lie ahead. We love these personalised Luke Edward Hall journals to get us excited about new beginnings.

Start as you mean to go on! The right stationery, like this Harris & Jones organiser or Pentreath & Hall memo block, can help you stay organised and on top of things. So splash out and unleash your inner Marie Kondo.

In this digital era, we often forget how enjoyable it is to write (and to receive) a note, card or letter. Embrace the handwritten and let beautiful stationery like this Caran D'ache 849 Goodbar pen and Bernard Maisner stationery tempt you back to ink and paper.

PS: Did you know there's research that shows that physically writing things down helps you to remember them, makes you believe they will happen and clears your mind for high-level thinking!
