Even in the age of computers and smart phones, sometimes a notepad and pen is exactly what is required. No failing battery life, no wi-fi problems; simply jot down your notes and away you go! But all those pens and pencils will need somewhere to live to keep your home tidy. A home office or student’s bedroom desk can easily benefit from a beautifully designed pencil holder. Take a look at this one by Ferm Living for example. Style and practicality – exactly what is needed whether in or out of school!
The above black notebook by Ted Baker is another essential item for success in both school and work. The faux leather brogue design perfectly complements the premium grade paper within, while the included satin ribbon bookmark ensures organisation at all times. The famous Ted Baker logo is decorated on the spine, presenting this classy piece of stationary. Now pay attention in class – and at work meetings – and find valuable material to write in it!
Another notebook with a more spirited, carefree design is the Gold Dots notepad by Kate Spade. Perfect for jotting down your latest thoughts and reminders, this beautifully designed and produced book of 125 lined sheets is ideal for managing busy schedules. A great way to deal with an ever growing ‘to-do’ list!
