These days it is all about technology. Smartphones, Ipads, Apple watches, it seems we use our technology for everything, and that includes using them as our diaries, for our notes, writing blogs, emails and memo’s. And yet, even in these days when it seems that paper is so over, stationery is having a bit of a resurgence. Instagram is full of beautiful images of Notebooks and pens, gorgeous diaries and post-it notes, with #stationery and #stationerygeek being much used hashtags. Maybe we are not quite as modern as we like to think, and still love the feel of paper in our hands when it comes to our notes, our thoughts and our ideas.
With this in mind, Pen Heaven have come up with a beautiful range of gifts that are perfect for those who love the traditional written word. The company, founded in 2008, offer a comprehensive range of writing instruments and leather journals offering in-house engraving and embossing. This season, with Valentine’s Day firmly in mind, they have put together a gorgeous range of products that include the red leather Napoli journal that retails at £32.99 and is just stunning.
For someone who loves to write, this is the perfect gift. For a start, it is beautifully made, in soft textured leather from Italy. The size of the book (Size: 13cm x 17cm) means that it is not too big, you could easily carry this in a large handbag or tote bag – useful if you are recording your innermost thoughts in it, or if you need to keep a notebook handy for blog thoughts or ideas. The cover has a gold leaf embossed heart on the flap, and the gold theme continues with gold gilded paper – a real touch of luxury.
The pages are superb quality, in Acid free plain paper. This could mean that as well as a journal or a notebook, this could also work as a small sketchpad. The tie ribbon fastening keeps your thoughts safe from sight and gives the book a very vintage, traditional feel. And, if you are giving this as a gift, you could, of course, write a message of love on the first page, adding to the special feel to what is already a really beautiful gift.
Pen Heaven have gifts for those with a love of traditional, beautifully made, items. To view their full range, click here.
