1. Papier Bee Leather Notebook in Olive Green, $49.99

Video of the Day

This notebook by Papier has some old-school academic vibes — the leather cover, the gold foil, the monogram — but it keeps things fresh with a cute bee motif. The leather comes in six different colors, while the foil comes in three.

2. Kate Spade New York Pen and Pencil Case, $24.95

We love the paper cutout-like print on this Kate Spade pencil case, which comes with the bonus of two pencils, a ruler, an eraser, and a pencil sharpener. Interested in a different pattern? You have five other choices, from polka dots to sunglasses and lipstick.


3. Calpack Kaya Laptop Backpack in Mauve, $128

Make a statement with this gorgeous faux leather backpack with stitched detailing. It has a laptop pocket that can fit devices with 15-inch screens, a main compartment, and a front zippered pouch. There's a selection of classic neutral colors that are always available, plus special limited-edition colors — right now, there's a hot pink called Dragonfruit and a bright orange called Papaya.



4. U Brands Locker Organizer and Decorating Kit, $18.12

Spruce up the inside of your locker with this gold and marble-inspired organizer and decorating kit. It comes with 11 pieces: a shelf, a mirror, a magnetic basket, a dry-erase board and marker, and six magnets. That's pretty much everything you need!


5. SXBan Rose Gold Crystal Flash Drive, $12.59

Who knew USB flash drives could actually be pretty? This one takes on a sculptural quality with a crystal base and a rose-gold head (although there's also a silver and a wood model if you'd prefer another color). The memory stick ranges in capacity from 8GB to 64GB.


6. SoYoung Linen Lunch Poche in Sage Green, $45.99

Forget a brown paper bag — pack your lunch in this cute tote. The linen bag is machine washable, although the insulated interior has a removable lining for easy daily cleaning. It also comes with a removable strap if you'd like to carry it over your shoulder or cross-body.


7. Rifle Paper Co. 12-Month Softcover Spiral Planner in Dovecote, $6.50

The bright and colorful cover of this planner inspires us to stay on top of our to-do list! Each weekly spread has space for your lists and notes, plus a mini monthly calendar. Just note that this specific planner is for 2022 — keep an eye out for the 2023 edition.
