I’ve said it before, I love stationary. I have a bit of a thing for it, if you will. Theres nothing more satisfying than picking out all new pens to go in a new pencil case, and making sure everything co-ordinates. Having 5 types of sticky notes, because you’re obviously going to make REALLY IMPORTANT NOTES on things with them. Buying a notebook everytime you decide to make a clean start, despite the fact that you not only have loads of empty notebooks at home, but your current notebook only has a few pages used in it.
So, this website, Present&Correct, was a bit of a bad one for me to go on to.
Just look at that front page! I want everything on there. But I’ve tried to narrow it down to a few things, so here are my picks from Present & Correct.
I love the Homework Pencil Case because its made of thin leather (so would hold up reasonably well in a bag) and is really cute. Maybe I’m just drawn to it by the neatness of the photo. Look at it!
The Book Band & Pen Holder is originally from Japan, and they are designed to keep all of your books together nice and neat. Its the sort of thing that I always wanted as a kid who read too many American teen books. Sweet Valley High has many things to answer for.
This is one of those things that when you think about it, is a bloody sensible idea. Something that you think “Well, why didn’t I think of that?”. The 5 Hole Pencil Sharpener is something that I think I should buy – not for my desk, but for my make up box!
I’m not sure why a box of rubbers (um, erasers for you Americans and people with filthy minds) appeals to me. Maybe its the way its been photographed. Honestly, take a picture of something in a really lovely way, and I’ll probably want to buy it. The P&Correctional Facility is a handprinted box of 6 new & vintage erasers from all over the world. Except this would be pretty useless for me because I would be too afraid to use them!
What do you buy the person who has everything (or nothing) when they start a new job? How about one of these Office in a Jars? Unfortunatly it doesn’t come with all the other bits that you’ll need to survive office life. Such as a baseball bat.
So simple. So effective. So boring (some might say. Shut up. I like this sort of thing.) The Pocket Clip Pencil has a clip carved into it, so you can attach it to your notebook, or wherever. I love things like this!
Must get off this website now, otherwise this little “feature” of mine will need to be renamed “What has gotten me further into debt this week?”
