Beautiful stationery and gifts to help you tame the mayhem of modern life. Let's do this...


We’ve had some fantastic entries over the past few years for our ‘Big Idea’ competition from our lovely customers. It’s important to us to incorporate new ideas, features and cleverness as we grow – and who better to help us than you!

It’s coming up to that time of year again where we’ll soon run this year’s ‘Big Idea’, so we thought we’d take a look back at last year’s winner and their wonderful product!


The winning entry last year came from Carole Stokes, who really needed a planner that would help her manage gifting – birthdays, Christmas and budgeting for presents:

“Coming from a large family with lots of nieces and nephews of a similar age and children at school who are constantly coming home with invitations to class friends parties, there is always a birthday around the corner and a present needed. I have a book with birthday details at the front, month per page with date, recipient, card and present columns then Christmas details at the back of my book. I also detailing the contents of my extra/last minute gifts, and use stickers for ideas or additions to be included for next year.

As a fan of bulk buying when deals are on, this is a great way to avoid embarrassingly gifting the same item year after year or for both birthday and Christmas!”


So what came next? Well, after considering everything Carole needs to keep track of, to make gifting easier we came up with the Gift Planner – a by month planner, with sections to write down names, gift ideas and budgets! 

And that’s not all – there’s also a Christmas Planning section at the back of the planner, making Christmas planning even easier. You can also record gifts you have received, and note if you have sent out a thank you note. The planner also features a pocket on the back page, and some beautiful stickers that gives gift wrapping an extra special touch.
