Stocking Filler Ideas From Smiggle

I love my stationary and always love receiving more on Christmas Day.
Noah has developed a love for stationary since seeing my collection and getting annoyed when I won't share.

He love's his drawing and has probably now got a bigger gel pen collection than I do!

The guys over at Smiggle have sent us over some goodies to share with you guys, just incase you have some stationary mad relatives!

First up is this very cool Scented Party Hardtop Smiggle pencil case.
Which has an RRP of £15.00
Perfect for any pen hoarder and Smuggle lover.
The scented pencil case is a sure has the wow factor that you want when going back into school with a new thing to show off!

This Rainbow Flower Alphabet keyring comes in different letters, so you can find one to suit the person!
This can either go on a set of keys, or your Childs backpack / book bag.
Very reasonable at £4.50

I love the retro design, and I know this would have been a must have if this was around when I was younger.
This is now hanging on my car keys.

Last but not least another retro item....
This colour changing mini rocket lamp.

Ru took a liking to this as soon as he spotted it and since then its been pretty tricky to get it back from him!
You can buy it in 4 different colours, black, pink, purple or blue.

This is available in stores nationwide and will soon be back up online.

Smiggle is one of my go to shops come Christmas or birthday time as I know I'm going to find something fun and cool that will really hit the spot.
They don't just stock stationary, you can find anything from lava lamps to back packs in their shops.
Pretty much something for everyone and every age!

PenPals And Smiggle

Over the summer holidays I teamed up with the guys from Smiggle for the campaign

Noah was teamed up with daughter Bluebell.

When I was younger I loved writing to different pen-pals,
I had one in France, one in Germany and one in England.
The excitement of waiting for their letters to arrive after I had posted mine was great.
Something you don't get from an email.
I wanted Noah to understand how exciting snail mail can be.

Smiggle sent him everything he could possibly need to write his very first letter,
a notepad,
colouring pencils,
coloured gel pens,
a prepaid envelope,
a rubber and a snap bracelet that is also a ruler!

Having all the letter writing gear from Smiggle help make it more exciting, as Noah has been after some Smiggle goodies for a while.

Noah's not the best writer and would rather draw than write a sentence, so I though doing his letter would be great for him, as he'd see writing isn't always boring and its not just something you have to do at school.

I'm sure its a boy thing, as soon as I could write I was writing lists and letters and anything.
Boys I don't think get the joy that comes from putting pen to paper.

With a bit of encouragement Noah got stuck into writing his letter to Bluebell.

Noah didn't just want to send a letter he was more excited about sending Bluebell a drawing.
Noah is really amazing when it comes to drawing, and if I was him I would want to send my pictures to everyone!

Once all was done, he was more than happy to run along to the post office and push his letter through the big red post box!

Noah waiting rather impatiently for his letter from Bluebell and when it arrived he ripped it open with a massive smile on his face.
Bluebell had used her secret spy pen, so once I told Noah this he ran upstairs to find his and to uncover her secret message!

Since receiving his letter Noah is now wanting to find more pen pals.
So I'm now on a hunt for letter writing buddies for No.
If you have a child around his age and they wanted a pen pal let me know in either the comments below or by email me and we can hopefully sort something out.


A big thanks to Smiggle UK for sending us the goodies!
