If you’re not quite ready to give up your midday sleep-ins, we have a surefire way of getting you excited about going back to school: brand new, super cute stationery.

Nothing is more satisfying than using fresh pens, organising assignments in crip folders, or writing that first word in a brand new notebook.

We’ve rounded up our top picks of the best back to school stationery.

The first step is getting your school years sorted with this funky Student Planner.

This Typo diary comes in 8 different designs and has a 12-month planner with a removable ruler, class schedules, exam schedules, grade trackers, weekly to-do lists and more!

The Daily Edited has released an incredibly safe case that doesn’t skimp on style, either.

Made from 100% real leather with gold hardware, this case is chic enough to be carried on its own or securely stashed in your bag.

Packed in a handy travel case, you’ll never have to be apart from your new favourite pens.
