On our recent honeymoon in Australia I discovered Kikki K – stationery shop heaven. Its a bit like Paperchase in the UK but much nicer in my opinion, more coherent in organisation and incredibly desirable with products.
According to their website, Kikki K “embrace the Swedish design principles of form and function to bring you seasonal collections of delicious stationery, gorgeous gifts and organisation solutions”. Kikki K not only sell amazing stationery and gift ideas but they also run in store events and workshops on topics such as organisation, mindfulness, goals and planning. Whilst we were in Brisbane I was fortunate enough to attend a workshop on planning and organisation for Christmas which was a great session helping to brain storm gift ideas for those awkward family members and also great tips and tricks for beautiful gift wrap.
Whilst at the workshop I had to indulge and treat myself to some stationery – well it would be wrong not to! I also joined the Kikki K members club which then gave me a voucher to spend even more, result!
Here is my amazing Kikki K haul.
The wooden stamps are great for making personalised gift tags and for packaging orders. The quote cards are in my craft room and are rotated each week. I love the selection of pens and I keep the sticky notes in my Filofax to make my list of top three things to do each week.
I bought my husband and I the Sentence a Day diary and its not like a usual diary, you are asked a question – some quite random – each day and the diary is for three years so you can see if you answer would change year on year. Questions so far have included “Who was the last person to pay you a compliment?”, “Who would you like to thank?” – its just a fun book to make you think a little.
Other items in my haul shown here include three travel bags for shoes and underwear, a pencil case or make up bag, a notebook and pen elastic, paperclips and little bull dog clips. A lot of these items I purchased as a Christmas gift set so I also have the box they came in which I have started to use to keep the family birthday cards organised in for the year.
I certainly did enjoy shopping at Kikki K, they mail order to the UK but I would be apprehensive due to customs charges but if ever I was in Australia again I would be shopping, but for now I just have to wait for a branch to open in the UK!
Have you discovered Kikki K yet? What other stationery shops do you enjoy? Do keep an eye out on my blog in a few weeks as I also purchased some Kikki K items to be included in a stationery giveaway!
Just to state the opinions here are all mine, Kikki K have not endorsed me to write this blog!
