Geometry Notebooks

A little geometry will do you some good, especially when it has nothing to do with numbers and everything to do with decorating a simple notebook. Each blank book is hand-printed and you have your choice between Ruler (grey), Protractor (pink), or Set Square (yellow).

50 blank pages in each book which measures 4.25″ x 5.75″.

Quips+Queries Cards

I, for one, believe that a quick handwritten note will never go out of style, no matter how advanced technology gets. For those of you that agree, might I direct your attention towards these cards, of which there are 6 different designs all available in a set of 50. My favorites are the 8 ball and Luck designs (shown), but there’s also a pink set (with 5 different French sayings) and a blank set with a silver or gold edge. There’s also an option of 100 cards in an acrylic box if you’d prefer to stock up: Quips+Queries Set, $28.00

Hankie Pocketbook

Can you think of a better name for this than ‘Hankie Pocketbook’? How about Pocket Square Notebook? Or anything else slightly less fru-fru than ‘hankie’. Of course, the dapper gentleman/women has permission to call it by anything he or she wishes, just be aware that there are alternatives that don’t make you sound like you’re a hundred years old (not that there is anything at all wrong with sounding like a hundred year old person). This notebook has 60‭ ‬ruled pages of ‬acid-free paper and is available in 3‭ ‬colors‭: ‬Red‭, ‬Cream‭ ‬&‭ ‬Charcoal.

Sticky Note Matchbooks

For the sticky-note addicted, this is a no brainer. You know how sticky notes get quite gross when in a pocket or bag? They pick up all manner of lint and random bits of something that you’d rather not see when checking a grocery or to-do list. This smart idea of a Sticky Note Matchbook keeps notes pristine and protected, plus the size is perfectly pocket sized (for us persnickety people). Pack of 4 for $2.

All Purpose Greeting Cards

All purpose greeting cards are the way to go for last minute messages, especially when they have a funny way of offering so many options. Paper cards, though rare nowadays, give an importance to an occasion, much more so than an email, and with these cards you’d have an arsenal of appropriate greetings for any event.

Origami Sticky Notes

If you have a plethora of sticky notes around your workspace, just think how nice would it be to make a little origami from them instead of chucking them in the bin. You could take a tiny creative break whenever you complete the task or no longer need the note. I’m sure it would help the day go by a bit easier.

Each pad has instructions for 10 different shapes (pig; penguin; boat; crane; butterfly; squirrel; lily and water bomb)

Montre Post-it Watches

Ah, now this is a must have for us forgetful folks. Each note sticks to itself to form a band, making a perfect wrist reminder for important times, notes, etc. So smart, and needed over here in the states as soon as possible (retailers, take note!). Currently the only retail site is in French, so a little translation might be necessary.

Pancake & Franks Box Sets

Despite the trend of emailing/social networking/texting a ‘happy birthday’ or ‘get well’, nothing really beats an actual handwritten card. When did you last handwrite a note on a card? If it’s been sometime in the past 3 months, well done. If not, time to remedy the situation with a box of cards to fit every event. If you’ve got several cards on hand, you can quickly whip out the right one, jot down your message, stick it in an envelope and you’re done. No trips to the local stationery supplier necessary. I like the look of Pancake & Franks offerings, especially as they’ve three different sets from which to choose.
