Reviewed – Laurige Leather Travel Wallet From Pen Heaven

With holiday season almost upon us, now is the time to get travel organised. But in the times we live in, many prefer to travel light, sometimes hand luggage only, and we need to be sure that we can keep our travel documents, tickets and passport safe, without taking up to much space. The Laurige French leather travel wallet and document holder from Pen Heaven provides a way of keeping all those important travel docs and tickets safe, without taking up lots of room in our hand luggage.

The wallet is made of beautiful French leather and comes in a range of shades including classic black and a stunning Parisian turquoise, but my wallet is in a striking, vibrant red shade that makes it easy to spot in my bag. The wallet is compact (Dimensions: H 105mm x W 190mm) and yet roomy enough for your credit cards, currency and those important travel documents. The inside flap has space for nine cards – more than enough for loyalty cards, credit and debit cards and any other cards you may be carrying. There is a zip compartment perfect for those euros or cents, as well as flap openings for banknotes. The second set of compartments also has window compartments that work well for photo ID and driving licenses.

The wallet is beautifully made and sleekly stylish. It would make a perfect gift for someone who travels a lot, but this would also work if you just wanted to use this as an everyday wallet, particularly if you are the kind of person who carries a lot of things in your purse. I love the fact that you can make this even more special and unique to yourself or a loved one by adding personalised embossing. I have my initials E.I on the front, but you could add a full name or something like ‘Emma’s Travels’ if you so wished.

Pen Heaven can always be relied upon as a mark of quality, and this is yet another stunning piece that will make your travels just that bit more organised.

A Gift of Love from Pen Heaven

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.
