Today I’m happy to launching a competition to win a £50 voucher for Flea’s very favourite stationery store, Smiggle.
There’s not much to be happy about when Back to School rolls around, but stocking up on new stationery is one of the bright spots.
Flea loves Smiggle because there are so many cute items in different colours. And the brand does a great job of bringing out new, seasonal collections. So there’s always something new for Flea to buy. And what’s not to love about a store that’s named after a mash-up of “smile” and “giggle”?
So we decided to run a special Back to School Smiggle competition!
Smiggle is a great option for Back to School shopping.
The stores DO look a bit like a unicorn threw up in them, yes. But you can pick up stationery, backpacks, lunch boxes and pencil cases all in one place. Winning! I also love how the store bundles up products into packages, which can be great value for money.
Younger children will love the furry creature notebooks and bright backpacks, while older kids will get a kick out of the stationery/game combos, and scented pencils.
We asked Flea to pick her favourite items from the 2018 Back to School range at Smiggle. Here are her top picks – but you could spend your £50 voucher on any items from the Smiggle website.
Smiggle Back to School 2018: Our Top 5 Items
Silicone Roll Top Drink Bottle
Flea’s school recently ditched the disposable cups at the school water fountains. Students are now expected to carry their own water bottles, and fill them as needed.
This water bottle rolls up small when it isn’t being used, and has a handy clip, so it’s less likely to be forgotten as Flea moves her bag around. It’s available in a range of designs and colours, but we’ve used several over the past couple of years, and really recommend them.
Magic Mood Pen
One thing Smiggle does really well is create pens that do other, random stuff. Last year, Flea had some pens that doubled as calculators. The year before they had little boxing kangaroo heads. This term, we’re going for these cute mood pens – it’s a mood ring, in a pen. What could be better to distract you during a boring Latin lesson?
Sequin A5 Notebook
Flea is always nagging for notebooks, but this new range with sequins is so cute I can’t say no. It’s a diary style notebook with 180 pages.
If you’re familiar with those sequin cushions and t-shirts, this is the same idea. Brush your hand over the book cover and it turns from pink to gold. Super tactile and satisfying. Just be quick because some letters are selling out FAST.
Out of This World Light
I think Flea would cover her entire walls in fairy lights if she could get away it. Since she can’t the adorable lights from Smiggle are a great second choice. This clam light is colourful, cosy and really unusual. Flea loves having it on the shelf above her desk when she’s working.
Silicon Rainbow Talking Clock
When Flea started senior school I had this great idea that she’d use her phone or Alexa to wake her up. Bad idea. Anything that can be switched off with a croaky “Stop” from across the room is a Bad Idea in this house.
After a few terms of morning panics, we invested in a dedicated alarm clock. An old school one that Flea has to actually get up out of bed to turn off. We really like this version, which is colourful and easy to use for kids.
