Ink Drops Stationery Review by Mel – May 2020

Thank you to the lovely Carla and Anastasia for sending me the May 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

  • A beautiful Simplanner, a monthly planner which can start in any month and is perfect for both planning and documenting.
  • A simple and stylish ‘have a wild Birthday’ card – for the mad plant person in your life.
  • A mini chalkboard easel – because small things need smiles, and because every desk needs a tiny easel, for inspiring things.
  • A gorgeous laser cut card on shimmery card, blank inside so you can make someone smile.
  • A set of calligraphy stickers in both black & white and colour, which we absolutely love for calendars and planners.

Time to talk about the treats inside this months edit…


This is a perfect item for me. I work in recruitment and I spend most of my time speaking to candidates and arranging interviews. I often use notebooks and scribble down things, but I do forget what day it is at the minute as one just merges into the next. This will really help me to stay on track with where I am. I love that it has a wipe down cover too, in case of any coffee spills.

Laser Cut Card

I recall having a similar one to this in a previous month. I sent it to someone, I can’t remember who though now. It is a stunning card and I love laser cut designs.

Wild Birthday Card

I am struggling to remember people’s birthdays at the minute, I keep having to check in my diary so I don’t forget to send cards. I think sending cards at the moment is essential to remind your loved ones you haven’t forgotten them. Thanks to Ink Drops I always have a nice selection to choose from. This will go nicely into my collection box ready.

Calligraphy Stickers

I love these, they can be used alongside the Simplanner above to motivate me during the working day. I will also be able to use them in my diary, or on Birthday cards.

Mini Chalkboard Easel

I have a desk at home I am using, it is my Son Joel’s gaming desk while he is away visiting his dad for a month. I will have to give this back to him, but plans are underway to make my Summerhouse into an Office. When this is complete I will be sure to have this on my desk in there.

My Verdict?

I am a fan of planners, and the calligraphy stickers go so well with it, so those are my favourites this month as I know I will get my use out of them by working from home for the forseaable.

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!
