There’s something so nostalgic about a matching stationery set or themed bundle. It reminds me of childhood birthday presents and back to school shopping. Here’s some kawaii favourites I’ve spotted recently with something for every budget.
Let’s start with a bargain! MostCutest.nl (EU) have lots of surprise bags including this kawaii stationery goodiebag on sale for €10. It includes a pencil pouch, washi tape, notebook, Cable Bite, squishy, sticker sheet and card holder.
Claire’s (UK) have a very magical Super Pusheenicorn stationery set with notebook, sticky notes, washi tape, clips, pen, pencil, rubber and sharpener. If you’re in the USA, Pusheen.com has a dessert-themed set.
This Hello Kitty set at Character Toy Store (UK) is very old school Sanrio and almost looks like an original 80s/90s set. It’s got a pencil, pen, highlighter, ruler, eraser, sharpener, mini notepad and 6 coloured pencils.
If you’re a fan of Japanese stationery, JetPens (USA) have some great colour-themed bundles with different items. This is the pink one with notebook, clear folder, mechanical pencil, washi tape, highlighter, pen pouch, ballpoint pen and gel pen, all from well-known quality brands.
Even if you have a Paperchase (UK) store near you, it’s worth looking online as there are web-exclusive bundles at a discount. This fluffy bunny scrapbooking set has an adorable scrapbook with pom pom ties as the main star plus 6 highlighters, a set of 8 washi tapes, stickers and cat pen.
Or go crazy with a Stationery Lucky Bag from Tofu Cute (UK) available in two sizes, both packed inside a cute drawstring bag. The contents are a surprise but always include an eraser, memo notes, deco tape, pencil case, sharpener, stickers, correction tape, pens and pencils.
