WHY we love Stationery

This week has been National Stationery Week and has seen the London Stationery Show go off with a complete bang! And Thursday's theme for #NatStatWeek is Love Stationery, which got us thinking about WHY we love stationery so much! 

In today's digital age, where screens dominate our daily lives, there's something undeniably magical about the feel of pen on paper, the crispness of a fresh notebook, and the vibrant colours of a well-designed planner.

Here are some reasons we LOVE stationery...

Stationery is a playground for creativity. Whether you're doodling in the margins of a notebook, crafting handmade cards for loved ones, or journaling your thoughts and dreams, stationery provides a canvas for self-expression. With an array of colours, textures, and designs at your fingertips, the possibilities are endless, allowing you to let your imagination soar.


In a world filled with digital communication, there's something so meaningful about receiving a handwritten note or card. Stationery allows us to add a personal touch to our messages, conveying our emotions and sentiments in a way that emojis and text messages simply can't match. From heartfelt letters to thoughtful thank-you notes, stationery helps us connect with others in a more authentic and meaningful way.

In our fast-paced lives, stationery invites us to slow down and savour the moment. Whether you're taking the time to write a to-do list, jot down your goals, or simply doodle for a few minutes each day, stationery encourages mindfulness and reflection. It provides an opportunity to pause, breathe, and engage with the present moment—a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life.


There's something incredibly satisfying about the feeling of crossing items off a to-do list or neatly organising your thoughts in a planner. (Anyone else write things on their to-do list after they've done them, just s they can cross them off? No? Just me then?)

Stationery helps us stay organised and focused, allowing us to track appointments, set goals, and prioritise tasks with ease. Whether you prefer bullet journaling, colour-coding, or creating elaborate spreads, stationery provides the tools you need to stay on top of your busy schedule.


From colourful sticky notes to whimsical washi tape, stationery has a way of bringing joy to the everyday moments of life. Whether you're decorating your workspace, embellishing a gift, or simply admiring the beauty of a well-designed notebook, stationery adds a touch of fun and whimsy to even the most mundane tasks. 

In conclusion, stationery isn't just useful—it's downright fun! From sparking creativity to fostering mindfulness and adding a personal touch to our communications, stationery enriches our lives in countless ways.

So why not embrace the joy of stationery and let your creativity run wild?
