I blogged about Ohh Deer in my very early days of blogging (I won’t link to it, I was pretty bad back then!) with a bit of a wish list. Well now my wish came true! Ohh Deer sent me a few bits to share with you guys. Some I chose, and some is stuff they wanted to highlight.
Stop Procrastinating Pencils, set of 6, £8.95.
I’m a bit of a pencil snob so I probably wouldn’t normally go for this sort of thing but this is a really fun set I like the simplicity of the natural wood pencils, with the subtle gold foil messages that can be the kick up the bum you need when you’re putting off your work!
I chose the exercise book on the left because the feeling on starting a new exercise book at school has never quite left me and this is a good modern take on the classic. This one has blank pages on the left and lined on the right (see below).
The other two are very similar, A4 (ish) lined notebooks, one with a geometric graphic cover and the other – a collaboration with Urban Outfitters – has this incredible Agate rock print cover I love this so much (I wanted to be a geologist “when I grew up”). I think these are really reasonably priced and would be perfect for school/college – lots of room to scribble down ideas and not too heavy to carry around all day.
Dancing Pug Tape, £4.50.
This was on my original wish list, if memory serves correct. This dancing pug illustration by Gemma Correll is the best. Just to be clear, this isn’t washi tape, it’s more like sellotape/parcel tape and you get a pretty big roll for your money.
Gold Scallop Pattern Tape, £4.50.
It’s no secret that I’m pretty obsessed with a scalloped edge so I had to choose this tape by Meri Meri. This will make any gift wrapping look classy. Worth noting that you have to be a bit careful when unpeeling the tape as the foil can get pulled off by the adhesive but if you go slow, it’s fine. It must be pretty difficult to produce a tape with gold foil!
Postal Stickers, £4.95 for 3 sheets.
And finally these postal stickers. These are a great idea! Ideal for jazzing up any parcels you need to send. I like the variety here although it can be a bit hit and miss… I’m don’t think I’m particularly prudish but I can’t imagine when I’d need to send post with a sticker saying “Boo. You whore” on it. But maybe that’s just me…?! Anyway, apart from those, I think these are pretty cute.
Please note these items were sent to me for the purpose of this post but all opinions are my own.
