Sometimes, the clash of slow living & technology is interesting… I have been battling WordPress for hours to bring you this post, about gorgeous stationery which has nothing to do with the internet.

Yet without the internet, there would be less gorgeous stationery around, and you wouldn’t be reading this (or looking forward to your own parcel of delights in the post, either).

Anyway.

A closer look at May’s rather fabulous box:

May 2018 stationery subscription box contents | UK subscription box | inkdrops.co.uk

We start May’s delights with a fab seashell card from Sam at Navistitch – keep your eyes peeled for an interview with her soon, she handmakes the originals of the prints on her cards from vintage coastal charts, and her studio (in the same building as Carla’s photo studio) is full of papery stitchy wonder. RRP £2.50

Next up is a quirky pen & highlighter set shaped like graffiti spray cans. Great as a present or to dissuade people from nicking your pen from the office, we thought these were really fun! RRP £6.99

Vintage-style stickers satisfy your gift wrapping, planner-decorating and general sticky needs (that sounded better in my head) – we’re very fond of the mushrooms and the “made with love by…” stickers in this set. RRP £2.00

Birthday cards filled with glitter – what more could you want to brighten someone’s day?! Dragonflies are an unusual but pretty emblem, and the glitter inside makes the card feel really special. RRP £3.50

Postcards + bicycles are two of our favourite things, especially at this time of year – here they are combined into a pretty little postcard, perfect for a quick thank you note or to touch base with a friend or a relative. RRP £1.20

What’s your favourite from this month? I’m plumping for the sparkly card…
