As a kid, I used to get SO excited to come back to school each year. Not because I was keen to learn or even because I was looking forward to seeing my friends (although, that did help.)
Nope, the reason for my eagerness was that it was an opportunity to buy new stationary! Generally, this involved buying A4 notebooks that I would laminate with posters of my favourite celebs from TV Hits and either a wetsuit material pencil case (because, #style) or a plastic one emblazoned with ‘EMRULZ’. Yep, I was pretty cool.
Fast forward to today and I still get that same feeling at the beginning of a new year, when it’s time to buy new stationery. But let’s be honest, letting me run wild in a stationery store is dangerous at any time of year. And why not? Having a nicely-decorated desk genuinely makes me feel more creative, motivated and productive.
So, to help you emulate that same ‘back to school’ feeling, we’ve rounded up 11 gorgeous stationary essentials that will actually make you excited to back in the office.
