Gift-giving season is right around the corner! Can you believe it? I don’t know about you, but it stresses me out. I’m terrible at giving gifts because I don’t know what people want or need. That’s why my favorite gifts are cute, silly, and unexpected! As a stationery enthusiast, I know that it can be hard to buy stuff for a journal addict. There are so many brands and varieties – how are you supposed to navigate that? You don’t need to! Get your paper-loving friend something that will brighten their desk, pencil bag, or bookshelf with one of these whimsical stationery gifts. These silly presents are guaranteed to make the pen hoarder in your life smile!
This is one of those gifts that you don’t know you need until you unwrap it. Who hasn’t always wanted to send a fancy letter with a proper wax seal? It’s straight out of Harry Potter or Game of Thrones!
These adorable little cards are perfect for the loved one who is truly a woodland creature at heart.
Okay, if someone could get this for me, I’d be so happy. Nothing makes the heart sing quite as much as a well styled bookshelf, and these bookends take the cake! Oh, and did I mention that you can get them in lots of different colors? Yes please!

Christmas should be a time of love, family, and laughter. So don’t worry if you aren’t giving a ton of super expensive electronics or ultra-stylish clothes. Sometimes a little bit of silliness can help to really bring a holiday season together. My favorite gift from last Christmas probably cost only about five bucks, but it made the entire family laugh like crazy! This year, give the unique, quirky, and whimsical stationery gifts that will entertain and delight your friends and family. Or grab some of these for yourself 😉 I’ll never tell!
