A Local Gift Guide for the Stationery Lover

It’s that time of the year again where gift giving is by no means, necessary—but also, essential, especially to friends and family. Personally, I love giving thoughtful and meaningful gifts to family and friends—things that instantly remind me of them, or something they would like. As someone who’s particularly interested in local products, anything stationery and art-related, and functional (also cute) things, I’ve rounded up a few gift ideas for the stationery lover in your life.

Tote by Bad Ass Tote Girl

There’s nothing more functional than a tote bag—with zippers—in colors that are so easy to pair with! I discovered Bad Ass Tote Girl thru CH, and I’ve been a fan ever since. All their totes and lovingly made in the Philippines, and Reese (the owner) is so sweet! I have two of their bags and I’ve been using them non-stop for daily errands and for (stationery) shopping.

Here it is: The Sunday Night Journal Washi Tape 💖 52 journaling prompts. One washi tape. This journaling innovation can be used to cover prompts in The Sunday Night Journal (Volumes 1 or 2) if you have built this #sundayselfcare habit already.

You can also use it for a daily journaling challenge, as part of your tarot exercise or even as coaching questions. Each prompt is printed against a varying pink or blue watercolor background so you know where to cut.

The Sunday Night Journal Washi Tape 

Make your journaling sessions more meaningful with The Sunday Night Journal washi tape. Featuring different prompts and questions to start your writing, this was a concept by Aueeie (my life coach), based off her Sunday Night Journal (which is also totally an awesome gift idea!). With prompts that help you find clarity and purpose in your own life and goals, this is the perfect present to surprise anyone who needs a little reminder to keep going, dreaming, and doing.
