Ink Drops Stationery Review by Mel – March 2020

Thank you to the lovely Carla and Anastasia for sending me the March 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.

In this month’s box you’ll find

  • Glorious rainbow coloured sticky dots – these are getting loads of use in our planner calendars at the moment.
  • A fab set of paint tube shaped stabilo highlighters – whether they grace your desk or pencilcase, they’re useful and quirky.
  • Moleskine postal notebook – open it up, write, doodle or scrapbook in it, fold it up again and pop it in the post. It’s the loveliest letter you could possibly send!
  • Glitter Cat Card – for the mad cat person in your life.
  • Rainbow envelopes – why not send small surprises to your five favourite humans?
  • A lovely vintage yellow roses card, for spring birthdays.

Time to talk about the treats inside this months edit…

Rainbow Sticky Dots & Rainbow Envelopes

We all need a bit of a cheer up right now, with everything that is going on in the world. I have to say that I will likely let my little boy use these alongside the envelopes. I am home schooling where I can because I am working full time still at home too. I have a box full of Arts and Crafts that I have broke out from storage to occupy him. I think it would be a nice idea for him to make some letters to send to his School friends, and these are perfect!

Tube Shaped Highlighters

I have left mine in the Office, which is closed! So I was really happy to see these in this month’s box. I use them a lot. They are really easy to hold with the shape of them, I have been using them today in my Bedroom which is now a makeshift office!

Moleskine Postal Notebook

This is such a beautiful idea. My Grandparents are in their 90s, and being over 300 miles from us I am worried for them. I will definitely be using this to send to them. I think my Gran especially will love this, we always used to send her letters, and as the years have gone by and I have my own little family, things like this become  almost extinct. Moleskine are a brand I am familiar with as I have owned some of their notebooks and the quality was excellent.

Vintage Roses Birthday Card

This is a classic and elegant card, perfect for any lady. This will be added to my greeting card box to be used soon. I think it is so important at the moment to send cards in the post. Most of us are housebound and I am sure that a little walk to the post box is perfectly safe. It also means a bit of fresh air so a win/win.

Glitter Cat Card

Can I send this to myself. I am a self confessed crazy cat lady! From what I can see this has been handmade, so clever! Perfect to add alongside a gift and sent in the post, or as a thank you card.

My Verdict?

My favourite item from this Months edit are 2 because I cannot choose. I love the Moleskine postal notebook, such a thoughtful item, but also for usefulness I really like the highlighters.

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!
