My European Paper Holiday Wish List


For the most part, stationery and office supplies are not super expensive and perfect for gift-giving. Unfortunately, non-paper geeks have no idea what do buy for the paper-and-pen geek.

Here are a few things I think would love to find under the tree this Christmas:

1. I love high-quality fountain pen inks. Both J. Herbin and Noodler’s make great inks and have lots of colors to choose from. I particularly like the icy aqua blue Noodler’s Navajo Turquoise Ink ($12.50)»

2. The amusing Cavallini Oops Eraser ($3.50) would make a perfect stocking stuffer.

3. I’ve been on the lookout for a great dry highlighters and the Moleskine Highlighter Pencil Set ($16.50) with its matte black casing and cool carpenter-style shape make this an appealing option.

4. I’m always looking for good-quality stationery and the G. Lalo Medium Tablet & EP Set ($23) in mint green looks like the luxury option. Wrapped with a red bow, it’s holiday-ready. And those lazy post-Christmas days are a great time to catch up on all my correspondence.

5. So many wonderful things have been said about the Apica Premium A6 CD Notebook ($14.70) but I’ve yet to buy a pad. I think the plain paper pad with the black cover would be a great way to try it out.

6. Anything by Midori is a welcome gift. Their products are high quality and have great classic looks. The Midori B7 Spiralbound Envelope Notebook ($8.35) would be a great catch-all for receipts, stamps or travel ephemera.

7. Finally, in preparation for 2014, I will definitely need a new calendar for my desk. The Cavallini Around The World Desk Calendar ($12.95) is just the right sort of retro cool for me to dream of my next vacation while sitting in the office.

Maybe I need to fill my own stocking this year?

(This is a cross-post from European Paper who has asked me to occasionally write about products for their site. This is my first post. The folks at European Paper also put together another collage of images from my Pinterest boards last week featuring the Leuchtturm 1917 notebook line.)

    The Apica Premium CD notebook is my favorite. Wish it had more durable covers, though. The A6 size is perfect to carry around, as well.

    Another vote for Noodler’s Navajo Turq…
