Stim Stationery: Gifted – Volume 2

My mum recently went to Japan and needed me to look after her small dogs. While my mum was in Japan, she got me these Stationery items, which was nice of her. Here are the items she got me:


Image Description: The background of the image is a navy blue couch with an alternating pattern of dark yellow fleur-de-lis pattern and a maroon red pattern. In the foreground is an A5 sized ring-bound notebook with a frosted plastic display protector. It also has a zip-lock document pocket on the front. There’s a thick white elastic cord binding the book closed.

This is a lovely notebook, it’s a perfect A5 size, the cardstock is dotted, so it’s perfect for Bullet Journal usage. It also has a neat little pocket for storing stuff, not a lot of stuff, but it would be perfect for business cards handed out at special events like VidCon.

This is a nice mechanical pencil (kind of self-explanatory really). I tend to use a grey-lead pencil to draw my Bullet Journal layouts, so this will definitely be useful, and I can get refills for this from Daiso.

In the foreground is a pale-skinned hand holding an aluminium folding mirror. The lid to the chrome case has been opened so that viewers can see the mirror within.

Mirrors are items of deep symbolic significance within Japanese culture. In Japanese manga, mirrors are often used as magical items that reveal the truth or perhaps dispell illusions. Although I doubt I’ll be using this to help me with my secret Magical Girl double life, it is a good size, and the metal case will work as good protection. This may not seem like a high priority to most people, however, I’m super clumsy and not in the cute adorable way, more like the “accidentally flinging things in random directions” way.

My mum told me what these items were, however, I have since forgotten what they are. I think they’re seaweed and sesame seed flavoured? IDK. I’ll post an update when I try them.


Image Description: The background of the image is a navy blue couch with an alternating pattern of dark yellow fleur-de-lis pattern and a maroon red pattern. In the foreground is a Sarubobo doll, it has a blue body, white blank face, and a green bandana.

This is a Sarubobo doll, they’re a popular souvenir from the Japanese city Takayama, and they come in lots of different sizes, types, and variations. Usually, they’re red in colour and have a small navy blue outfit. They do come in different colours and each colour has a different meaning (check out the link for more).


Image Description: The background of the image is a navy blue couch with an alternating pattern of dark yellow fleur-de-lis pattern and a maroon red pattern. In the foreground is a small pink and white Sarubobo doll (this one has small pink cat ears), a small pink bell, and a short cord that you can use to attach to a phone

This is another Sarubobo doll, but this one is a small figurine, and it’s mostly for attaching to phones. This one is cat themed and it has cute little pink cat-ears.

Well, those are all the items, let me know what you think in the comment section down below, and thanks for stopping by.
