Dd1 needs a seriously cool pencil case. These things matter when you're 13. Please help!

Just that, really. From my POV her old ones seem perfectly functional, but apparently they just won't cut it anymore.

Retro is good, cute is good (Hello Kitty v. popular) and ideally something which not everybody else will have, which rules out Paperchase and Woolies.

Thanks!

Try museum gift shops - online or in person. Or art supply stores.

Paperchase have lovely ones. Even I like them and I'm erm, a lot older than 14.

sorry, 13!
