The scissors’ magnet base is a complete game-changer, giving them a permanent VIP spot on your desk. They are made with lustrous Japanese steel and are an excellent tool to assemble a DIY gift for your partner on Valentine’s Day. Besides being handy tools, they’re also pretty cool desk decor.

What we like

  • The magnetic base provides your scissors with a dedicated spot
  • It features a built-in box cutter, which is a unique forward-thinking detail we love

What we dislike

  • They’re quite aesthetically pleasing and unique, but cannot replace the heavy-duty scissors you need for tougher tasks

3. CraftMaster EDC Utility Knife

Given the number of ASMR videos we have seen on Instagram that shows a person cutting everything from soap to foam, we know the value a good cutter has in our everyday life. Especially when creating crafts, a good cutter is a solid friend that will help you navigate those tight curves – which is exactly what this CraftMaster EDC Utility Knife does!

The metal exterior is hefty, giving a solid holding grip that makes it easy to hold. The scale sports both metric and imperial markings so you can follow those DIY instructions with ease.

What we like

  • Merges a scale with the cutter, becoming an all-in-one package
  • It is only 8mm thick, balancing the healthy grip with a slim design for easy travel

What we dislike

  • While excellent for standard envelopes, it is not versatile enough for those bulkier packages or intricate mail

4. ClampTape

Dubbed the ClampTape, this innovative and amusing tape dispenser by Peleg Dispenser ensures you always have some tape handy. It features a clothespin-inspire design that clamps onto the tabletop surface, providing you with an instant tape dispenser.

Why is it noteworthy?

The ClampTape is another ingenious design by Peleg Design, which combines emotional design with problem-solving abilities. It is cute and convenient, and is made from bent sheet metal, with a rubber/polymer sleeve wrapped around the clamping jaws, so it doesn’t cause any damage to your table.

What we like

  • The ClampTape comes with its own roll of tape
  • Gives a fun twist to an ordinary stationery item

What we dislike

  • The clamp may not open wide enough to hold onto all table or horizontal surfaces.

Why is it noteworthy?

The pencil has an octagonal shaft which is made using aluminum, and it features a special alloy core. It does not leave heavy grooves on the paper, and instead it draws like a pencil, without the tip wearing down after dozens of marks.

What we like

  • Has a metal core instead of clay or charcoal, so the pencil wears down very slowly and with time

What we dislike

  • Isn’t the best option for those who use smudging techniques, as it doesn’t smudge or smear the way normal graphite does

6. Japanese Memo Block

Called the Japanese Memo Block, this little stationery item is designed to function as a temporary shelter for your itinerant thoughts. It’s great to pen down your intimate and affectionate thoughts or to write an adorable love letter for your partner on Valentine’s Day.

Why is it noteworthy?

A blank sheet of paper is often the most freeing and welcoming item, as you are able to record your fleeting thoughts, flashes of inspiration, or even the sudden tasks that have been handed to you. The Japanese Memo Block has no marking, grids, or lines, it is white or in color, letting you focus on your thoughts and tasks.

What we like

  • The pure white/black surface allows the mind to focus on important thoughts and put them down on paper
  • Made using high-quality Japanese paper which is revered by many stationery connoisseurs

What we dislike

  • At first glance, it seems like an ordinary notepad and seems to have no special USP

7. Colored Curve Pens

Called the Colored Curve Pens, these unique dual-tipped pens by Aechy are a far cry from your typical dual-tipped pens. One end of the pen lets you lay down pretty patterns such as waves, heart roses, flowers, dashes and dots.

Why is it noteworthy?

It basically functions as a stamp-like roller that can you use for journalling, doodling, drawing, scraping, or to make a lovely Valentine’s Day gift or card for your better half. The dual-tip markers are available in eight different colors and five-mark line types.

What we like

  • Helps the artistically challenged with drawing and doodling
  • 40% more ink than the brand’s regular pens

What we dislike

  • You can’t choose a specific color for a specific pattern so you’ll have to use the options that they have available

8. Japanese Drawing Pad

Japanese paper is a material that has always been loved by designers and artists for its quality. And if you want to get your hands on some of this beautiful paper, then you need to try the Japanese Drawing Pad. You can use it to create a lovely DIY gift this Valentine’s Day for your partner!

Why is it noteworthy?

It is a premium-quality pad that lets you jot down your thoughts and passions without the stress of accidentally damaging the durable paper fibers. It creates a smooth, engaging, and relaxing writing experience.

What we like

  • It is microperforated, making the paper easy to tear
  • Available in various sizes and colors, so you can pick the kind that meets your stationery and drawing needs

What we dislike

  • At first glance, it seems like an ordinary pad with nothing special to offer, as its high quality can only be experienced, not seen

9. Ruler_C

Called the Ruler_C, this conceptual design minimizes how much contact the ruler makes with the paper or surface beneath, resulting in an unusual form that makes it quite pleasant to look at as well.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Ruler_C’s body curves up on one side, instead of being flat, creating one long edge, while the short edges are in contact with the drawing surface. This reduces the amount of damage the ruler causes, while also elevating the tool’s usability.

What we like

  • This gives the ruler an interesting shape that immediately calls attention without being loud and obnoxious

What we dislike

  • It’s a conceptual design, so we don’t know how well it would translate into a real product

10. Serenity Pen Stand

If the pen you choose as your instrument to craft that love letter deserves thought and attention, the vessel we use to hold it should also have the same elegant design, worthy of the pen it is holding. That is exactly what the Serenity Pen Stand brings to the table – a minimal design with a metallic hint that holds your pen upright and ready for you to use!

Why is it noteworthy?

Aluminum and copper come together to create this well balanced cylinder that adds a pop of colour to your desk.

What we like

  • Heavy copper bottom lowers the centre of gravity, giving it stability
  • Minimal design that is easily portable for every setup.

What we dislike

  • Not available in different color options, hence there is a limited choice while purchasing it
