10 Stationery Gift Ideas for Father's Day
Hi WashiGang Crew!
With Father's Day just around the corner, we've created a gift guide for all of the stationery loving Dad's! Do you know a Dad that loves to stay organised? Loves to sketch and is super creative? Or maybe you know a Dad that is super goal driven! We've got plenty of gift ideas for you!
We know that Dad's love stickers and washi tapes, too - but we've picked a few practical and minimalist items for this list. You can always personalise your Father's Day gift by adding on some more fun items to match - such as a pen in their favourite colour, fun dog stickers to match their fur-baby or some washi tapes to help keep their journal organised! All Dad's deserve cute stationery, but it's a good idea to have an idea of their favourite colours, themes and animals before you get carried away!
10 Stationery Gift Ideas for Father's Day!
1. Kleid A5 2mm Grid Notebooks
These Kleid Grid Notebooks from Japan are super thin and minimalist! Perfect for jotting down notes, budgeting, daily journaling and planning in a simple and efficient way. We love how portable these notebooks are for the every day.
The paper is known in Japan as "OK Fools Paper" with a watermark unique to Japan's finest writing paper. It handles most inks well but is better suited to ballpoint and gel ink pens rather than wetter inks such as fountain pens.
The perfect gift for a minimalist! You could pair this gift with a Zebra Sarasa Gel Pen or a Pentel Energel-X Gel Pen.
