I've already mentioned the writer's love for pens but along with that goes a writer's giddiness over a well-formed writing pad. Be it A5 or A4, lined or blank, ringbound or punched, a lovely, fresh pad will make any writer smile.
As with the pens, they don't have to be expensive and they're widely available in stationers, gift shops or supermarkets.
Here's a selection that I came across.
