12 Days of Gift Ideas - Day 9 Gifts for the Stationery Lover

If you are shopping for Christmas gifts it's getting down to the wire, as they say.  If you have someone on your list who loves all things paper, handwritten notes, pens, planning and cards this is for you.  

Here are some ideas to inspire you.  As with all my ideas, this is a gift guide to get you started.  Though there may not be time to order some of these items you should still be able to shop for any of these locally.  There are 2 items that are personalized so obviously you wouldn't receive them in time, but you could still purchase. 

Here is your inspiration in more detail:

I have rarely met a person who  loves stationery and doesn't also love paper planners.  The planner I have pictured is one of THE planners (if you know what I mean).  The Erin Condren LIfe Planner has tons of options for customization and personalization.  If you choose to order the standard "insides" you still have the option to personalize the cover.  Along the same idea of a planner would be a journal.  Shinola makes a beautiful journal with many color choices for the cover along with a choice of lined or unlined paper.  

Next is paper!  Personalized note cards can be purchased from a variety of places at all different prices.  I think this is one of the best gifts for someone who truly loves stationery.  If you don't want to personalize, a beautiful set of note cards is always an option.  One quick idea for this:  purchase a variety of inexpensive note cards, place in a beautiful container and give as the ultimate note card collection.    Paper - writing paper either plain or decorated runs a close second to note cards.  You could take this purchase a step further and personalize paper as well.

Don't forget something to write with!  Whether you go extravagant with a beautiful pen from Tiffany (yes, it's possible) or add variety with an assortment, of shall I say less expensive pens, don't forget the pen!

I hope you're inspired to check off one more person from the list today.

Happy Shopping!

p.s. be kind out there - it's getting crazy - people are getting stressed!
