5 Essential Stationery Pieces For A True Letter Lover

5 Essential Stationery Pieces For A True Letter Lover

Dear Friend,

5 essential stationery pieces pinterestFor lovers of the art and practice of letter writing, we need to know which are the must-have stationery details.

I find it as a great pleasure when I am thinking about all the little things I need for the next correspondence adventure, or when go shopping and need to choose among a variety of chick stationery cutie-pies. It’s a real joy and relaxation.

And somehow there is always room for more gorgeous stationery items.

I was thinking about the must-have stationeries that every true correspondence enthusiast should have, and here is the list of my choices:


1. Basic Planner or Notebook

It is a real moment of joy, often followed with new ideas. But it can be, also, the motivation for successfully performing tasks from your to-do list.  A planner or notebook can contain many pages: day plans, list of birthdays, important dates, contacts list, and notes. Thus, a notebook lets you create and improvise. It is your call.

After all, who does not like the adorable little planner or notebook? And who minds another one on the shelf?


2. Stationery Set

This set is a guarantee that you won’t be missing out on anything. The classic letter set can get you out of a dilemma when you suddenly get the inspiration to write to your penpal. It is a set you can always return to. However, plain white paper and a postal envelope always remain a solution for those who are passionate and enjoyable for calligraphy, but also the eternal romantics and dreamers. Their art of writing has a special shine.


3. Pen Set

There are plenty of different labels and I am pretty sure that you can find some in the nearest bookstore.




#4 – Washi tapes

I use them mostly for decorating the envelopes and gift wrapping. Originating from Japan, Washi Tape is a decorative masking tape that can be used for a verity of creative ideas.





#5 – Retro Stamps & Seals

Let your imagination and creativity run wild. It won’t be perfect at first. You have to recall that every great innovation demands some experiences! Take your time, eventually, you’ll find your way!





Finally, the stamping process in the correspondence fits a point at the end of the sentence. The moment when the magic stops considering that going to the post office can sometimes be very tedious. But it is also an integral part of this adventure. Try it, it can be really fun!
