Christmas Gift Guide

by Susan Green December 16, 2013

In a quandry? Here are some ideas for stocking fillers, special presents and everything inbetween.

Don't forget to order by midnight on Thursday the 19th for Christmas delivery. I'd be happy to send orders directly to your gift recipients - just include their name, address and any gift message when you check out. 

STOCKING FILLERS: Mini Journals £10 

Bound in the same lovely, tactile goatskin as my larger books, they're the perfect little luxe gift. In pretty pink, to manly monochrome and all shades inbetween they're small but useful notebooks to slip into bags, pockets - and Christmas stockings, of course!

Paperback Notebooks £10 set of 2

Florals and graphics are paired with handmade Nepalese batik-dyed paper in these sweet notebooks.

 

FOR ADVENTURERS: Travel Journal £99

If someone you know is planning an extended trip overseas, this is just the thing. With a Mark Twain quotation on the front page, and special entry sections for date, location and in case of emergency details, this Travel Journal will be their faithfull companion.

FOR COUPLES: Wedding Guest Books £70 and £99

For love birds planning a wedding, these Guest Books will be a treasured gift. Bound in white goatskin for guests to leave their good wishes and advice, the couple can also include photographs from their big day. Bespoke options also available for made to order.

FOR ARTISTS: Leather Journal / Sketchbook £39, £70 & £99

The Longstitch with Linkstitch binding styles allows these sketchbooks to lie flat on a table, they take inclusions such as mixed media and collage, and with various secure closing methods, they're a safe place to plan larger pieces. Three sizes.

Sketchbook Set: Accordion Fold £15 set of 3; £10 set of 2

Something a little less ordinary for people who love to draw, collage and story-tell. These paperback notebooks open to reveal an expandable page.

FOR SCRAPBOOKERS: Memory Book £119 

This book bound in fine goatskin is a luxurious option for those who love to scrapbook their holidays, event planning, make a record of the year or compile a photograph album. A5 landscape size with heavyweight paper and spacers in the spine.

FOR WRITERS & BLOGGERS: Hardback Journals £25

These hardback journals are the perfect size to tuck into a bag, take on a trip and jot down notes on inspirations, dreams and plans.

All of these books are in stock and ready to ship. For all that's good to go in time for Christmas, click here.

If you're reading this a little later than the 19th and are in a last minute fix, email me and we'll see what Father Christmas and the Elves can sort out for you!

As ever, bespoke options are available for all leather Journals, Sketchbooks, Wedding Guest Books and Memory Books.
