Ink Drops Stationery Review by Mel – January 2020

Thank you to the lovely Carla and Anastasia for sending me the January (Happy New Year by the way!) edition of Ink Drops Stationery. For all of you Stationery addicts, this really is a mix of everything. I always find items in this subscription that I use in my day to day life. My kids even get use out of it, not that I have any choice in the matter when they see something that they want!

This Subscription for me teams fun, organisation, and convenience. Do I have the time to shop for most of these items? Very rare! It also means that I always have some essential stationery items to hand just when I need them. It is letterbox friendly for most of you (my letterbox is too small), so most of the time you won’t need to be home for Mr/Mrs Postie.

This Months edit arrived via Royal Mail in the usual boxelope (Box Envelope), and when you open that there is a further envelope inside which looks like this…

How much will it cost?

Just £15 including postage, delivered!

There is no minimum term on a subscription, and it is simple to cancel via PayPal. You can also buy their monthly edits as a one-off via the online shop.

What is inside this Month?

  • A fabulous week planner with a retro theme – whether you’re planning for your business, your family life or your meals, this will get you organised.
  • A beautiful snowdrop card – though we haven’t spotted any real ones blooming just yet – have you seen any?
  • A set of gorgeous winter themed sticky labels – just right for January making, baking and parcel posting.
  • A sweet card we have nicknamed ‘cake vs cycling’ which is sure to make you smile.
  • A rather lovely golden key pen, which is reminiscent of childhood books and new starts – perfect for January.

Time to talk about the treats inside this months edit…

Retro Weekly Planner

This is just absolutely brilliant! My working week at the moment is just non stop! This is going to help me plan my work and my life, and look cool doing it. I love the retro theme. You can use the little magnets to stick up your weekly planner sheet too. This is organising heaven!

Golden Key Pen

I do not like boring pens, my favourite has to be my fluffy flamingo one that my Son bought me. This is really cute, and a very fine black tip so handy for pretty much anything. I often use these to write my kids names in every label available. The stickers always fall off so anything that helps is great.

Winter themed Sticky Labels

These are all different shapes. Square, rectangle, oval and a crest shape one. They are ideal for gifts, I might even store them away for next Christmas as there are a few sheets of them. They would look beautiful on plain wrapped brown paper tied up with string!

Cake vs Cycling Greeting Card

This is a quirky and funny card. I have to say I am more Cake than Cycling, although I need to be on a Bike after all of that eating over Christmas. It is blank inside so multiple use again. Could be just the cheer up someone needs.

Snowdrop Greeting Card

I have the answer to the question on the insert contents leaflet. There are Snowdrops in my garden, and Daffodils. My partner pointed them out nearby where I park my car and I had not even noticed. Again this is a blank card, so could literally be used for any occasion.

My Verdict?

My favourite item from this Months edit is the Retro weekly planner. Absolutely bang on this for me and my organising ways. I

I genuinely look forward to my Ink Drops delivery each month, sometimes it is nice just to enjoy useful items that I use each day, rather than spending every night with a different facemask on. If you are a Stationery Addict, then this is one I highly recommend you subscribe to. You really cannot go wrong for just £15 each month delivered.

It is definitely worth browsing their Website for gift ideas, they have a Mini Subscription priced at just £30 for 3 months. There are themed bundles such as I love to be beside the Seaside (£13.50), and I Love Fairytales (£7).

It is also worth checking out their Blog. Lots of Articles have been written by the owners of this Subscription!
