We're all about the indulgence when it comes to stationery shopping - there's no shame in enjoying little luxuries, be it a finely crafted notebook or a pencil that's lusciously perfumed. Whether you're shopping for a longtime pencil aficionado, or a person who simply enjoys the finer things in life, we've got just the right things for the stationery (and we say this lovingly) snob on your list.
Swiss Wood Pencil Set - We've been proclaiming the Swiss Wood pencil to be the ultimate pencil snob pencil for ages now, so of course we were beyond thrilled when we discovered Caran d'Ache released a sibling! This set features the beechwood pencil we all know and love (and love to smell!), as well as its gorgeous pine counterpart, and a great little sharpener and eraser, all packaged in a tidy little box. Bonus: you can, of course, purchase the classic Swiss Wood individually, in case you need extra (trust us, you need extra).
Walnut Exotic Pencil Set - We just about fainted when we first opened this little package - wrapped in a box within a box is an utterly gorgeous walnut box containing four of the most beautiful pencils you'll ever see in your life! What makes this all extra exciting is this lovely box neatly breaks apart (it's held together by magnets) into a little desk tray to rest and admire your special pencils. There's even space to showcase those Swiss Woods you just picked up. ;)
Emilio Braga Cloud Print Notebook - There's something so special about a perfectly crafted notebook - it just makes me feel like all my writing and doodles are so much more important. These Portuguese notebooks have gorgeously creamy white pages, edged with hand-stamped gray cloud print. Yellow is our go-to, and we hope it will be yours too.
Viarco Scented Pencils - Never mind candles - you'll get bonus points for creativity if you gift these gorgeous scented pencils instead. Each pencil is perfumed using the actual plant they are designed to smell like, leaving them smelling freshly floral. Your recipient's pencil cup will smell like a summery villa, which is perfect for banishing wintry blues.
El Casco Single Hole Sharpener in Yellow - This is an obvious pick for the most serious of pencil lovers. Gorgeously enameled in yellow, this luxurious single hole sharpener creates a perfect point and is stunning, yet sturdy. You'll be admiring its sunny finish for years to come.
Kaweco Sport Clutch Pencil (Coming soon!) - As lovers of classic wood-cased pencils, we rarely deviate into the world of alternative pencils (you'll notice no mechanical pencils in our shop), but every once in a while, when we find excellently crafted items we make an exception. The Kaweco Sport is a chunky, yet streamlined lead holder (this bad boy holds 3.2mm size lead). The broad diameter of the pencil makes up for the fact that it's short in stature compared to a traditional pencil, while the thick lead inserts are wonderfully smooth and soft.
Dux Adjustable Sharpener - This little guy is perfect for on-the-go stationery snobs. The dial on the top allows you to pick the length of point for your pencil, while the sturdy brass casing ensures this sharpener will last you for ages and ages. And for your on-the-go friend, this thing comes with it's own fantastic little leather case.
