Ystudio Collection

If you’ve got a weakness for nice pens, pencils and pen cases, then you’re in trouble. Ystudio’s offerings are made of brass and copper and wenge wood, and the various pieces are all beckoning to belong to your collection. Take a look at their Mechanical Pencil and the Rollerball Pen*- each have a satisfying heft in their cool, streamlined brass cases. Either (or both) would be excellent gifts, as the brass has a nice, understated elegance to its matte sheen. Consider adding a Pen Case or the Pen Container to keep your writing implements close at hand.

Phi Scissors by Hay Denmark

Pretty, pretty scissors. A carbon gold plated handle will dress up any cutting chore while two different sizes will ensure that the blade fits the job. Ugly scissors on your desktop? Of course not.

Hay’s Tower Blocks Paper Notes

Animal Mask Notecards

Animal Mask Notecards! Fun, fun, and fun. Each and every recipient of your heartfelt scribblings will get twice the amount of enjoyment from whatever sentiments you share, because they’ll have a mask as well. Maybe they’ll even attempt to make the appropriate noise for the animal, because if you’re going to wear the mask, you’ve got to pretend to be the animal, right? I think those are the rules.

My Spot is just a very, very minimal approach to a pin board. Gravity keeps the string taut, allowing the anchors to hold your postcards, calendar pages, and notes within reach and perfectly displayed on a simple, horizontal line.

Hafod Grange Teasel Paperweight

A spiny head of a hand-picked teasel doesn’t sound pretty, but up close it’s a beauty to behold. Dipsacus fullonum is the plant’s proper name, by the way, and the prickly bracts are friendlier to inspect and admire when enclosed safely within polyester resin. It may be an excellent gift for anyone who appreciates botanical oddities, but I’d say you could justify purchasing one for yourself, as it is a paperweight, and therefore can be classified under office supplies. Do take a look at the full selection of Hafod Grange Paperweights, as you may want to start a collection (the Dandelion is spectacular).

The A4 size will accommodate legal documents as well as odd notes, craft supplies, and memorabilia.
