#TopDrawerTuesday: Local boutique stationers
A new generation of independent stationers make gift-giving just a little more personable, with inspirational Instagram accounts to boot

Mint & Ordinary / @mintordinary


Best for: Quote-loving girlfriends who'll lap up the clean aesthetics and inspirational words, which they can hang over the bed for their morning mantras, or placed on the work desk for #dailyreminders as they sip on the frothiest of lattes. The prints are illustrated first-hand by founder and owner Janne Liew using ink and brush, before being digitally or hand-printed.

You'll love: Their latest print, an SG50 tribute to Home, the song that's hard not to sing along to when it's on the air. 

Where to buy: Their site has the full list of products. If you'd like to customise a print, get in touch at 

The Weave Co. / @theweaveco


Best for: Print-loving style mavens who adore the chaos of colour. We love how their prints and greeting cards have a sartorial edge (how matchy-matchy is this teal moodboard?), yet still possess a strong loyalty to the craftsmen who inspired them. The Weave Co. works with small enterprises as well as Fair Trade Federation members to inject a little bit of heart in your everyday.

You'll love: Their fabric greeting cards, which feature fabrics hand-cut from vintage kimonos and shaped as florals, fans and mini-traditional dresses. 

Where to buy: Their site stocks collections as well as a blog to update yourself on collaborations.

Wünderlust Paper & Stationery / @wunderlust.stationery

Printed notebooks

Best for: Fans of child-like motifs which make you go "aww" at first sight. Think: Woodland creatures, pastel florals and quirky characters a la Paul Frank.

You'll love: Their 2016 calendar, which will be retailing soon. Also look out for waterproof stickers and wrapping papers in their signature brights. From their current collections, you'll find stickers, notepads, gift tags, cards and the like.

Where to buy: If you see anything you like on their Instagram account, email or call 9712 3507.
