Upgrade your workspace: our favourite shops for stationery
Unless you work in the Google offices or a similar style set up, it is more than likely your desk space is a little bit soulless. Some people like and need a blank canvas however, given the amount of time spent at our desks, a little personalisation can go a long way! While Dubai isn’t teeming with stationery dedicated stores, we’ve broken down our pick of the best pieces to help you organise or personalise your life.
- HEMA, Ibn Battuta Mall
We’re not obsessed with this shop, okay? It just happens to cater to a lot of our needs. And for stationery you need look no further than HEMA – you’ll find Tiffany blue folders, rose gold in trays and pink paper clips among a whole host of aesthetically pleasing stationery to pretty up that desk!
While sometimes on the spendier side, Paperchase has long been a favourite of ours for cards but they’ll help you up your stationery game too with ultra chic desk organisers, planners, notebooks and more.
- Virgin Megastore
There’s not much you can’t get in Virgin these days, from clothing and records to books and hydroflasks, with items you can’t find elsewhere in Dubai. And that extends to your desk enhancements too, we love the personalised note cards and week planners.
We’re not really sure whether Typo is a stationer, a card shop or a Harry Potter store (there seems to be an abundance of Hogwarts themed items) but nevertheless, it’s a great spot for sprucing up your stationery game. And light up letters, so many light up letters.
Being one of the UAE’s biggest online fashion retailers for women, Namshi also dabbles in homeware and stationery. From magnetic desk planners and cute notebooks to cute pastel office stationery and post-its, your desk can look as good as your wardrobe.
