Hi, I’d really like to put together a lovely bundle of stationery for my mum for Christmas. She likes arts, crafts and writing letters and cards. I’d like something a bit special and different but when I look at some of the specialist stationery shops online the choice is overwhelming and some of the prices are way beyond my budget.

If you had £30-50 to spend on some nice stationery what would you get?

Thank you!!!

Something on my Christmas list is a Herbin liquid ink rollerball pen - it takes standard size fountain pen cartridges so you can vary the ink.

I cant offer any advice on the craft bits but that pen has good reviews and being able to vary the ink on a whim sounds fun!

That is such a lovely idea - Have you looked at a calligraphy set?

These are great and cheap and arrived really quickly. No-one is too old for personalised pencils...

There are some beautiful notebooks on Not On The High Street which you can personalise with initials or whatever.

I like flame tree studio and peter pauper press notebooks. They are beautiful. They also both do notecards etc. Amazon is good for peter pauper press (american company I believe) and flame tree studios are online. Just bought a beautiful foiled notebook from them for a gift. Cult pens excellent too

I like Peter Pauper as well

I get adverts for Papier but they are so expensive. Looks lovely though.

TK Maxx/ Homesense has some good stuff you just have to dig for it!

I'd always recommend Papier, their stuff is so pretty and they do gift sets. You can use my referral link for £10 off:
