Having a notebook is a great way to make sure that ideas are never forgotten, you always have a place to write down your thoughts, and you never get home from the shops without having bought the one thing you went for. Whether it’s jotting down notes, journaling or making shopping lists, a notebook is essential for organising your day-to-day life.
Notebooks are also extremely versatile gifts that just about everyone can appreciate. From the busy mom to the high-powered executive, these little books are always useful.
A customised notebook is great for several reasons.
Firstly, because of its unique appearance, you’ll never lose it. Secondly, it reflects your personality through carefully chosen colours and designs. And thirdly, it can be used to track any exciting ideas, drawings, or inspirations you pick up along the way.
Cotton Bird offers two main different types of notebooks:
Both the fabric notebook and the spiral notebook are filled with high quality lined pages and the option to add a personalised photograph on the cover.
If you like, you can also add a title to your notebook, such as “Elizabeth’s Notebook”, or “Noah’s Journal” – anything that makes sense for the purpose of your notebook in particular. These make great gifts for anyone who appreciates stationery that is both functional and beautiful.
There are endless ways to utilise a personalised notebook. No matter who you are or what you do, chances are you need somewhere to track your thoughts, dreams, memories, or ideas before they get lost in the fray. But if you’re not sure what to do with a notebook, here are five ideas to get you inspired:
You can use your notebook to document growth milestones in your family’s lives, or simply your favourite memories. Stick your most cherished photos in your notebook with some text about what makes them special, and you’ll soon have a scrapbook worth keeping until you’re old and grey.
If you’re a parent, notebooks can be a wonderful tool for tracking major milestones such as losing first teeth, participating in a school play, or celebrating a birthday party.
Are you a foodie with a love for all things salty and sweet? Perhaps you can use your notebook to collect all your favourite recipes – or experiment with new ones. The lined pages make the perfect space to jot down flavour combinations and baking instructions for your next big feast.
If you’re not big on coming up with your own recipes, you could even use your notebook to prepare meal plans for the rest of the week. No more guessing what’s for dinner – it’s already in your book!
Creative writing is good for the soul. But not everyone likes to share their poems with the outside world – so why not keep them safe in a private, personalised notebook? You can carry it with you wherever you go and jot down ideas whenever inspiration strikes.
You could also write song lyrics if you are more of a musical person. Whether you are a professional writer or just a curious beginner, having a quiet place to log your creative musings will help you gain confidence and skill over time.
When it comes to grocery shopping and weekly schedule planning, you’ll find no better friend than a trusty notebook. You can use these lined little books to sketch out your day-to-day routine, plan your grocery hauls, or simply make a regular to-do list.
Being productive is tricky when you’ve got a lot of different tasks on your plate, which is why a notebook can come in so useful for those busy days.
You never know when you need to take down someone’s phone number or address, but with Cotton Bird’s personalised notebooks, you’ll never be caught empty-handed.
Writing about your feelings, aspirations, fears, and relationships is a great way to process what’s going on in your life. Journaling brings perspective and clarity, which can be beneficial when going through a big change or making an important decision.
No matter who you are or what you’re going through, having access to a private, safe space to process your emotions and thoughts is very important for personal growth.
There are many great reasons to invest in a high-quality notebook. Cotton Bird is committed to providing beautiful, customisable notebooks that reflect your personality and can be used in a practical, everyday way. With these notebooks, you’ll always have somewhere to keep a record of whatever is precious or important to you.
