At IMAGE we are stationery devotees – here is our edit of the best stationery items to buy for a fresh start this month


September always signals a fresh start.

It’s back to school time, holidays are over and the seasons are changing. While this year might feel weird and wobbly and not so wonderful, stationery is a great help with feeling more energised.

Whether it’s for a to-do list for housework, goals for the next four months, or just a way to journal your thoughts, buying a new notebook or set of pens gives us a clean slate.

Paperchase and Ban.do created wonderful ranges of colourful and joyful stationery accessories at great prices, while Brown Thomas and Choosing Keeping are our top choices for something a little more luxurious.

However, our favourite is the personalised stationery by AThingCreate on Etsy. The gorgeous notepads can be personalised from skin tone to hair colour and would make a beautiful gift.
