Yeah, yeah: We know we’re living in a digital age, but that doesn’t make us love cute desk accessories any less. They add a pop of color to your monotone office desk or your workspace at home. Plus, sometimes you need to jot stuff down in a hurry, so keeping cool notepads handy is a must—especially now that so many of us are working from home.
Studies show that writing something down helps you remember it better, which is a major plus for anyone— whether you’re super organized or a well, a little scatter-brained. With all of our side hustles and busy work and social schedules, it really is easier to keep track of your to-dos and daily reminders when you make a habit of jotting them down on a pad of paper. Besides, writing monotonous tasks down on a colorful notepad feels so much more motivating than a boring white notebook or your phone’s digital notepad. Some notepads even have “go get ’em” phrases for gentle inspiration, while others are here to give you some tough love about your procrastination.
We’ve scoured the web to find the coolest notepads out there in all different shapes, sizes, and styles. From cute floral designs to an astrology-inspired notepad, we found options that match your interests and fit your aesthetic.
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
