Even in this technological age where we all use laptops, mobiles and electronic organisers to store our information, we still need paper and the hand written word. Last Christmas Belle Mere bought me the most beautiful journal from the Paperblanks collection, it has a beautiful design on the cover, 144 unlined pages, high quality paper (sourced environmentally), ribbon page marker and a memento pouch on the inside of the back cover, useful for storing receipts, cards etc. I am using mine as a travel diary.
They do journals, lined and unlined, address books, visitors books and day planners all in a huge choice of beautiful designs. They would make an excellent Christmas present, anyone would be thrilled to recieve, although on their website you can only purchase if you are a retailer you can get them here at WH Smiths, Amazon and in France they are available from France Loisirs.
They have so many beautiful designs I could have added them all to this post, but here are a few of my favourites.
