Ink Drops Stationary Box Review

Hands up if you're a stationary addict! (I'm waving with 2 hands). I am a sucker for stationary and could be described as a stationary hoarder. I love anything pretty and I collect notepads like they are going out of fashion. 

When Ink Drops got in touch to ask if I'd like to receive one of their monthly subscription boxes, I obviously couldn't say no. I used to love receiving post when it was cards, hand written letters but I have to say as I've got older I've fallen out of love with things that are delivered through my mailbox, with the likes of bills coming frequently etc. Also the gift of a hand written card seems to have disappeared too with digital card companies becoming more popular and also just sending texts or writing on social media. 

I remember squealing with delight when I was younger, when the postman delivered a letter from my penpal. I used to spend hours writing letters, making them look pretty by decorating the envelopes etc. I guess it was then that my love for stationary started. 

Ink Drops are a monthly subscription service who will deliver unique stationary to your door every month. They are available in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. If you don't want to subscribe monthly, then you can order a one off box or one of their ready made gifts. The monthly subscription is £15 including postage and packaging to the UK. Themed one off boxes vary in price.

My parcel arrived and inside it was 6 items which included 2 cards, an exercise book  a pen, an eraser and sticky notes.

The space themed exercise book was my favourite item out of the selection. I'm actually a bit of a space geek so I found the print adorable.

I also loved the note dispenser. It's in the shape of a typewriter and dispenses notes that say 'once upon a time'. 

The pen writes and holds really well. It's smooth and soft to hold. My eldest daughter stole the cat eraser from me as soon as she saw it, typical. I also really liked the card with the rabbit and the doughnut on it.

I wasn't the biggest fan of the patchwork card. It wouldn't be a print I'd like to receive myself but I've added it to my card box as I'm sure someone would like to receive it.

Whilst I loved the selection I received I'm not sure I'd sign up for a yearly subscription. I think £15 a month is a lot to commit to when you don't know if you will like everything in the box. You can get a sneak peek of the set that is due to arrive so that would be handy for ordering one off's.

I'd definitely order some of their themed sets, in fact I have my eye on quite a few of their sets such as I love Fairytales, Say Hello, Get Happy and I Love New York.
