Papergang is a subscription box for stationery lovers. I used to flit between beauty boxes, but when the second or third box would arrive, it just wouldn’t give me joy.
Every time I know it’s on the way I am waiting for the postie to arrive. There’s just something about it that makes me feel like a kid at Christmas, and this month, I really did.
Their November box was full of wintery wonderfulness to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Ohh Deer work with illustrators across the globe to create funky designs each month. For November, the creations were designed by Kong-Yew Wong.
And if you didn’t already feel awesome for supporting independent artists, then maybe you will about the fact that for every four boxes sold, a tree is planted in association with Tree Aid.
In the November Papergang box there was six adorable Christmas cards. I joined a Blogger Christmas card exchange on Twitter, so they came in very handy.
I did have to buy extra though as there were so many bloggers in the group and I wanted to send as many as I could.
The cards in the Papergang box came in three different designs. The first said ‘Be Merry’ with a Santa illustration. The next was a little seal pup in the snow with the words ‘Be Jolly’. The third was a snow-kissed house which read ‘Be Cosy’.
And speaking of being cosy, there is nothing I love more than a mug of hot chocolate in the winter months. It was amazing to receive a little ‘be cosy’ coaster that I can put on my desk whilst I’m typing away at blog posts.
On the third day of Christmas Papergang gave to me – three Christmas gift tags!
With the same phrases as the mini Christmas cards, these cute gift tags will come in pretty handy whilst I‘m wrapping presents for my family!
In a similar design, there is a month-to-view calendar card – as there is in every box. It features a cute little reindeer and a snowman, which I’m using to count down the days to Christmas.
For making my lists (and checking them twice) I have an A5 list jotter with spaces for my to do’s, notes and doodles. This will really help keep me on track over the stressful Christmas period. I always struggle to remember what last minute stocking fillers I need and which Christmas party is when!
Lastly, for your Christmas wrapping for that extra special gift, there is some scandi-style festive wrapping paper and gold washi tape to seal! This year I wanted to avoid wrapping paper that isn’t recyclable, so went for brown paper and newspaper. This sheet will add a splash of excitement to the gift pile!
And if this was November’s box, I can’t wait to see what’s in December’s! Have you stocked up on festive stationery?
