The Novel Notebook

For my 17th birthday at the end of December, one of my friends bought me a notebook that is basically perfect for me. I don't know how she came across it in the first place but I am so glad that she did. Described as the perfect place to keep your thoughts and ideas for writing a novel of your own, this was a very thoughtful gift for someone going on to study journalism and creative writing at university. She knows me so well!

After browsing the internet, I found this notebook and many others by the same brand on Not On The High Street (see the full range here). They are a really great idea for anyone who may be starting university this year and studying something along the same lines as me. I know it is just after Christmas so not exactly the prime time of year to talking about gifts but if you know of a birthday coming up then why not give one of these! There are also travel journals, normal notebooks, etc, so there really is something for everyone and there is the added option of personalising it like mine.

I love how it is in the style of a vintage book. What do you think?

    Wow! What a fantastic gift to receive! I'd love to get my hands on one so that I could document my baby's first year when he arrives in April😃.
