Nine must-have stationery staples, from beautiful notepads to daily planners, curated by Stylist editors to help you plan your social life this summer.
Over the past year, we haven’t had much need for a planner but now indoor and outdoor socialising is back, we can finally get excited about making plans again.
To help you keep on top of your organisation and planning, Stylist’s editors have curated a selection of must-have stationery staples. Plus, with summer coming around quickly, now is the time to get hold of a planner or notebook before your social calendar begins to fill up.

Dar Leone Romarong Bone China Pen Pot
If your WFH desk currently resembles a scattergun stationery free-for-all, we can relate. But, just like a KonMari enthusiast upon finishing The Life Changing Magic Of Tidying, we’ve realised it really is time for a spring clean.
