Since I’m having some remodeling work done in my home office next week, I’ve found myself in the unenviable position of having to move all of my belongings from one end of the house to the other. (This sounds like not such a big deal, except that my office is over the garage and separate from the rest of the house, so it is like actual moving.) The upside is that this gave me the “opportunity” to sort through years of accumulated stationery, donating some, setting others aside for blog giveaways, but also taking the time to do something I’ve never done before: making a “personal hall of fame” or “personal favorites” list. Hopefully, making a list like this will help me focus and weed out stuff that I will never use. Last year I did a huge year-end “clear out” sale in December, and I hope to do the same this year.
So, without further ado, here are my picks. Again, these shouldn’t be confused with my “best pen” recommendations. Rather, these selections are my own personal favorites, organized by category, so there’s a ton of subjectivity here. Most of these are also products I have reviewed, so where possible, links are to my own prior posts. Otherwise the link will be to a sponsor or affiliate who sells the product.
Favorite Large Format (A4-ish) Notebook: Baron Fig Confidant Plus (shown in review in leather cover, which is sold separately by Baron Fig)
Inks and Refills
Pencils and Pencil Accessories
Any categories you think I missed? Shoot me an e-mail and I’ll consider adding it, though I don’t want to get too down in the weeds with subcategories of different types of pens, etc. I hope you enjoy!
