A lazy Sunday afternoon is the perfect time to sit down with a notebook and pen to do some writing, be it journaling, blog post writing or just general notes. Hmmm… A mug of hot chocolate (dairy-free for me!) wouldn’t go amiss either! Thankfully, Ryman has kindly supplied me with a notebook, pen and mug in return for an honest review, so I’ve got everything I need for my lazy Sunday afternoon.
The Personalised by Ryman range has a great variety of stationery and gifts perfect for personalisation. Whether you’re personalising something as a gift or buying something for yourself and making the statement “THIS IS MINE!”, there’s plenty to choose from.
It’s National Ballpoint Pen Day today, so what better a pen to show you than the Parker Jotter ballpoint pen! The Parker Pen Company is a big name in the pen world and even has royal warrants from The Queen and the Prince of Wales, so you know you’re getting a quality pen with this one. I chose to get the Parker Jotter in Violet as I’m a big fan of anything remotely purple.
The Parker Jotter Ballpoint Pen features a retractable medium point nib, comes with blue ink (refillable with Parker QuinkFlow Ballpoint refills) and is supplied in a Parker gift box. The Parker Jotter is a solid pen with a nice weight and it writes beautifully. It’s the perfect pen for everyday use.
Ryman now offer laser engraving, so you can have your name or any other text (up to 15 characters) engraved onto the barrel of the pen.
Obviously, if you’ve got a pen you then need something to write in or on… This is where the Ryman Personalised Soft Cover Medium Notebook comes in handy. It’s a slightly odd size being 5mm taller and 13mm narrower than A5, but its soft cover ensures that it feels great.
The notebook cover can be personalised with copper foil (up to a maximum of 20 characters) making it a unique gift or even a treat to yourself! Whilst it is called a “soft cover” notebook, it’s actually a hardback cover, it’s just that the material used has a soft feel to it.
The notebook features lined, ivory paper inside, along with a bookmark ribbon, an elasticated pen loop and a handy fold-flat pocket on the inside cover. An elasticated band holds the notebook closed, perfect for when it’s carried about inside a bag.
It’s a good, decent notebook with quality paper – perfect for journaling or simply taking notes. It’s available in 4 different colours, but of course, I had to choose purple.
However, before you sit down with a good notebook and pen, you need to make yourself a cuppa…
Check out this Ryman Personalised Watercolour Burst Initial Mug. As you can see, the mug features the initial of your choice in a watercolour burst. It’s simple, but it looks good. Whatever your choice of brew, this mug is perfect.
I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday afternoon!
