Review: Viking Direct Stationary

Thursday, September 18, 2014
A couple of weeks ago I was kindly sent some cute, novelty stationary from Viking Direct! I am a sucker for all things stationary and these are no exception *stationary nerd*. Some people might find the handbag and shoe stationary items a bit tacky but I love them and I think all of these items would  make fantastic stocking fillers - yes, I am already thinking about christmas!

*Foray Softcover Lined A4 Notebook (Black, £8.99): Notebooks are one of my favourite stationary items, I do seem to collect them and then buy more. This one is simple but so practical and well designed. There is a pen slot, two marker tabs and it is lined with a box at the top of the pages for the date. I would have loved this while at university, it would have been so handy! 

*Papermate Ink Joy Pens (x10, £6.29): While in college I found that due to all of the essays and exams (I had about 45 exams in total) I hold pens quite hand and it can be fairly painful to write after a while, so finding pens for writing for hours in exams was a struggle. The shape of the Papermate pens is triangular almost so they fit well, they are very easy to use and they write smoothly. I love the colours and there are more 'formal' shades in this pack too. 

*Post-it Handbag Z Notes Dispenser (£7.99): How cute is this post-it note dispenser, I think it would make a great stocking filler/present for handbag lovers and stationary nerds - I am both so I love this, even though some may think it is a little tacky! It contains 50 post-it notes in various colours. It is such a handy stationary item to have, especially as I have a lot of blog related things to remember. 

*Scotch Tape Pink Stiletto Tape Dispenser (£5.99): Last but not least, I have a scotch tape dispenser in the shape of a pink stiletto, what woman wouldn't want that...just me...ok. Another great gift idea in my opinion for a secret santa or a stocking filler. It really brightens up my desk and it is very quick and easy to use - it will be invaluable with the holiday season fast approaching.

Overall, I am very happy with all of the items! They are well made and well designed, in my opinion. I think all of the items would make great gifts for students, stationary nerds and handbag/shoe lovers as cute useful, practical presents that aren't boring! My rating for all of the items: ★, 5/5!

What do you think of these items? Have you bought anything from Viking Direct before?
