10 for $10: Paper Presents Edition

In the past I’ve run entries into the 10 for $10 series that focused on school supplies – but let’s be honest. Fall feels like a good time to update your paper products in general, no matter whether you’re a student, a single gal, or shopping for students in your family. With more cute stationery options than ever before, today’s gift guide is all about 10 cute paper products that also make excellent gifts – all for $10 or less (not including taxes or shipping)!

Post-it Notes Cube – $3.88 @ Staples
Of course I had to kick things off with the masters of cute paper products – Post-it! This tropical-hued sticky notepad is perfect for brainstorming or taking notes on the fly. Nab one for your fave coworker!

Exploration of Ideas Notebook Set – $9.99 USD @ ModCloth
Technically with the exchange this breaking my 10 for $10 rules a bit, but I mean, you’re getting three notebooks that could be split up for gifting, so I’m saying it’s fair game! I love the artistic covers of these cute books, which come with three types of paper (graph, lined, and blank).

Small Spiral Journals – $6 each @ Indigo
Of course Indigo’s paper department is full of dreamy inspiration – and lots of it is super affordable! These petite notebooks are perfect for stashing in your purse to write down everything from grocery lists to poetry.

Show Me Your Kitties Notebook – $6.90 @ Forever 21
Yeah, I’m super immature and found this amusing – mostly cause I’m #teamcat. But actually, this unlined notebook with a magnetic closure would make a fun back-to-school gift for any cat person or tween in your life.

Cisixin Creative Aroma Bitten Chocolate Bar Notepad – $9.99 @ Amazon.ca
Literally the only thing that would make this durable, rubber-covered notepad more awesome would be if it actually smelled like chocolate. In the meantime, it’ll be the cutest pad of paper you’ve ever owned!


Mustard Gifts Rainbow Desk Notepad – $10 @ Urban Outfitters
It is almost too pretty to use, I think. But in actuality this rainbow-themed notepad makes an equally cute desk decor as it is practical for jotting down notes!

Hall Pass Adult Coloring Spiral Bound Sketchbook – $9.74 @ Walmart
Doodling is so 20th century – instead, get a notebook that comes with a colour-in cover to help you wile away the hours. This particular brand sells several different covers and sizes so you’ll always be entertained.

Grand Portage Adventurer Vinyl Hardcover Journal – $5.99 @ Hudson’s Bay
I love the thick cover of this notebook – it gives it a cool retro vibe and ensures your precious notes won’t get crumpled when this little book gets tossed into your purse or backpack.

Kraft Notebook Duo – $3 @ Sears
Honestly the Sears stationery department has quickly become one of my favourite places to peruse. Where else can you get two eco-friendly kraft paper notebooks with fun script designs on the cover for under $5?

Paper Spiritz Sticky Notes in Leaf – $8.29 for a two-pack @ Amazon.ca
Sometimes you don’t want to clutter up your walls or workspace with a bunch of paper. These leaf-shaped sticky notes have a much more natural, soothing vibe to them – no matter how many to-do’s you’re adding!


There you have it! 10 super cute paper product gift ideas for students and students for life – or those who simply love to write things down the old-fashioned way. Now how about an extra entry into my Find of the Month for The Night Sky? Just tell me in the comments below – which of these cool paper products is your fave?
