Of all our creative stationery Xmas gift ideas, this is one of our favourites.

We’ve all got a practical planner in our lives; the list maker, the organiser – maybe it’s you. Treat this sensible stalwart of the family (or yourself) to a colourful gift to make planning and plotting more of a pleasure.

SIGNO gel pens are a lovely way to add colour to lists and fun to note taking. Opt for funky metallic gel pens or pretty pastel sets to make things more interesting. Make the gift look really stylish by investing in a stylish, robust planning book so they can use their practical pressie all year round.
