I have ASD so I sometimes get things wrong. I am buying a present for someone at work (Secret Santa) and have found a lovely notebook in John Lewis that I would like to give.

Is this ok or is it a bit naff?

I can't give smellies as she's very particular on brands. I can't give chocolate as she's very careful over what she eats.

I would like to receive one in SS, particularly if smellies or chocolates are out.

I'd be quite happy with that from a Secret Santa.

Id like that, better than any jokey rubbish. Im giving a lovely set of plastic measuring cups for SS this year. Theyre multi - coloured, arractive but practical.

I'd love that but I'm a bit of a stationary geek!

I would also like that - but like PP, I’m a self obsessed stationary geek!

My dd has asked for a notebook. She’s only 6, but she is learning the joy of nice stationary.

I love a good notebook. I have many.

Another stationery geek here.

A nice one with good quality paper and a pretty cover is a very good choice. Can't go far wrong with stationery!

I think it's a good choice OP, go for it.

Thanks so much for the reassurance, really appreciate it.

No that's lovely! The Paper Blanks range in John Lewis is nice.

Wish you were getting the secret santa present for me! Love stationery (who doesnt!) and John Lewis have extra lovely ones. 😊😊

That sounds good. I'm stewing over secret Santa at the moment, I would be really happy with a nice notebook.
