10 of the best notebooks

Are you sinking under January admin angst? Perk up your desk (and life) with some shiny new stationary.

You know what they say – write notes, realise dreams! Or, um, at the very least make January’s admin rush a little more bearable.

We need no excuses on Muddy to snap up gorgeous stationery, and now neither do you with 10 of the best notebooks. Because shopping for stationery basically makes you organised by osmosis, right?


Gotta Avo Go

Keep your notes on trend with this oversized Avocado notebook from Cirencester hub of home accessory temptations, Sue Parkinson. Comes with 120 pages to write as many odes to avos / wishlists as you can muster.




Master Stroke

The Lilac Scribble Flower notebook by Completist can be found at Gloucestershire design emporium m.a.d.e – one of our fave stores for all things cool and quirky. This flat lay beauty has lined, blank and grid pages to keep your life organised – whilst making you look really arty. Win win.



Wooden Wonders

Make an eco statement with your stationary. The Alljoy Designs Wooden Notebook is made in Ireland from ethically sourced wood. 50 pages of sustainable stylishness we say. Find them at New Brewery Arts in Cirencester.



Twice as nice

We’re totally in love with this two-tone colour-block pocket duo from Bucks-based indie Duke & Rabbit. Perfect for chucking in a handbag.
