Sometimes you need something that bit nicer than a plain notepad and BIC pen. Sometimes you need something that looks gorgeous when you take it out of your bag. Sometimes you need stationery that you are proud to be seen with. Edie & Rona provide exactly that!
To begin with, I have to say that Edie & Rona send out their products really beautifully packaged. Each piece comes wrapped in delicate tissue paper with either a Edie & Rona sticker or a card to say thank you on larger pieces. I really loved the added detail in the packaging from this brand. I think going that extra mile really helps to make you stand out.
For so long I have carried around a notebook of some kind with me in my handbag or now in Erin’s changing bag. The notebooks have varying in many ways of the years and I have had loads of different kinds. The one thing I won’t do though is carry around a tatty, boring notebook. It’s just not in me.
I am so in love with these Portico Designs Notebooks. The pack of two is a steal at only £7.95. In the pack you get one lined notebook and one with squares. I’m not rally sure what I’d use the one with squares for right now apart from actually playing squares with my husband on trips away! If I was more arty or creative I’m sure I could do a lot more with it.
The bright, floral designs are what I love most about this notebook set though. The colours are so eye catching that you can’t help but notice them. They’re certainly the type of notebook that makes me happy each time I take it out of my bag.
Caroline gardner gift set
Something else I really love is a nice pen. I know to some people that sounds a bit weird. They just don’t get it and that’s okay. However, I am so picky and particular about which pens I use. When I go to work I take 3 pens with me and they stay with me all the time. No one else is allowed to use them and I near enough guard them with my life.
These Caroline Gardner pens go perfectly with the floral notebooks because they’re also bright and colourful. The set of three pens currently costs £17.99 which is about £6 a pen. Trust me when I say that these are a dream.
Not only are the colours of the pens stunning but they are so nice to write with. The nib is super smooth and I could sit writing for hours with these.
The pens are also multinational. On the end of each pen is a pink stylus nib. I love how these pens can switch from writing to use on a tablet or phone in a second. They’d be great for if you’re working on a tablet but need to write things down at the same time.
Edie & Rona have quickly become a new favourite of mine for stationery. I have my eye on a few other pieces already and I know people that would love some bits as gifts!
