Summer is finally here and so are Pride celebrations. What better time to celebrate than the colourful months of summer? Pride is such an important time to support the LGBTQ+ community. I may be a straight cis female but that doesn’t mean I don’t support everyone’s right to truly express who they are and Pride is one amazing time to do that. Pride is celebrated in June and July and is a series of events all around the world that celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex culture and pride. As a proud supporter of LGBT+ rights I’ve picked out some of my favourite rainbow stationery to show the love to the Pride movement and the Pride rainbow.
Recycled Rainbow Pencils
These rainbow pencils are super cool and made from recycled paper. When you sharpen them all the colours of the rainbow appear in the shavings! Despite being colourful and fun there is nothing tacky about these as they’re finished with a sophisticated outer layer of either white or black. You can get them on Etsy here for £10 for a pack of five. A simple but useful gift that celebrates the beautiful spectrum of colours.
‘So Over It’ Rainbow Denim Pencil Case
Are you so over people’s outdated attitudes? Me too girl. This denim pencil case with embroidered rainbow perfectly complements our ‘over it’ sentiments about those closed minds. Pencil cases are always better with a little bit of sass added and I really love this from the stationery giant WH Smith. You can get it here for only £7.99 and shipping is free if you order over £20 worth of items. They always have really good offers on some of our favourite pens so it’s the perfect excuse to refresh your supplies!
Rainbow A5 Ombre Notebook
Now we’re going more on the gaudy style with this striking rainbow ombre A5 lined notebook from Paperchase. It’s definitely not subtle but that’s why I love it. It even has pink edged pages to add even more colour and fun (if that was even possible!). This is the perfect notebook to write down all your LGBT+ rights campaign plans in and can you imagine how hard this thing would be to lose?! Get it from Paperchase here for only £10.
Rainbow Gradient MT Washi Tape
Back to something a bit more subtle, this rainbow gradient tape by MT is a really nice way to add the rainbow spectrum into your bullet journal spreads without it looking too in your face. MT are a really solid brand that produce great quality and varied designs. You can find it on Fox and Star’s Etsy shop here for only £2.95.
Kawaii Kool Rainbow backpack
Who says you have to be a kid to enjoy rainbows?! This rainbow backpack is so fun and colourful it’s sure to put a huge smile on your face. The whole Kawaii Kool collection from Paperchase is a massive celebration of colour and fun the perfect complement to pride festival. Even better it’s curretly on sale! Snap it up quick before it’s gone for only £15 (half price!) Get it here.
Rainbow Ballpoint Pen
Finally I’ve picked out this sleek petrol metal ballpoint pen from Paperchase. I absolutely love how subtle this is while still being really colourful. The petrol style metal is so cool and you will always have a use for a good ballpoint pen. It’s stylish and sleek while still sporting that beautiful rainbow palette. Get it here for £8.
