I’m guessing your reading this post because you are totally and utterly addicted to stationery like I am! .. You’re in luck, because I have a juicy post for you! All about my Hong Kong stationery finds from my work trip a couple months ago. I’ll also be sharing some of the shops I visited to find all these cute stationery beauties!
Hong Kong Stationery Finds
1. FRENCH BULLDOG PEN HOLDER / Shop: FrancFranc
This was hard to resist… so I just didn’t! A white plaster frenchie, sitting up holding a bouquet of flowers with a spot carved out just for your pen to sit. In the store, FrancFranc they displayed them with these gorgeous feather pens, and I knew right there that it had to be on my desk at home! They also had an adorable rabbit, kitten and mermaid shells too.
2. BIG GOLD FEATHER PEN / Shop: FrancFranc
This beautiful pen is not a quill! It’s actually a ball point pen which makes it so much more functional. I love that the barrel is gold with a small crown at the join where the feather meets, very cute! I chose the purple colour way, but they also had white and natural-look feathers.
3. DACHSHUND PRINTED PEN / Shop: LogOn
Umm.. have you noticed the trend yet? Hong Kong loves adorable animal themed stationery and so do I! So naturally I couldn’t leave this cute dachshund printed pen on the shelf. The brand has a very delicate and distinctive style with many cute prints from apples to ditsy florals.
4. SQUISHY POLAR BEAR PEN / Shop: Ocean Park
This one was my souvenir from visiting Ocean Park in Hong Kong. I figured the squishy eyes might be stress relieving while at my desk and it’s a just a little quirky.
5. SILICONE BOOK BANDS / Brand: Punilabo / Shop: LogOn
These are genius idea! I can’t believe I havn’t seen them before. You stretch them around your journal and place pens into the silicone pocket. Not only does it keep your journal together but it also means you don’t loose your pens moving from meeting to meeting. I bought both the black cat and grey cat. There is also a range of matching silicone pencil cases!
6. HK WASHI TAPE / Shop: LogOn
I bought these washi tapes because they were Hong Kong themed, making them the perfect addition to my travel journal. I bought all three HK designs – Chinese characters, foods and traditions.
7. MIDORI TRAVELERS’ JOURNAL KIT / Brand: Midori / Shop: LogOn
This was my favourite stationery find from Hong Kong and I can’t believe that I didn’t know about this product earlier! I bought it on the last day of my travels and started journaling in the hotel that night! The great thing about the Midori Travelers Journal is that it’s specifically designed to to the size of a travel wallet and you are able to easily take out one journal from the cover and add in a refill notebook once you have finished one.
8. MIDORI REFILL BOOK + ZIP POCKET / Brand: Midori / Shop: LogOn
Because I hadn’t seen this product frequently in Australia, I decided to buy the refill journal and plastic pocket accessory just in case! I know I’ll be using the refill on my upcoming travels and the plastic pocket will come in handy for placing my stickers, tape and things I find to put in the journal along the way!
9. PLANE STAMPING PEN / Brand: Pilot / Shop: LogOn
Pilot has a range of these little stamp markers which are great for adding quick details to journaling pages. I bought the air plane stamp but they also have little animals, paw prints and icons.
10. SPEECH BUBBLE STICKERS / Shop: LogOn
Speech bubble stickers are always useful! These ones had pretty gold foiling around the edges and made great writing spaces in my travelers notebook.
