40 New Bond St., London, England W1S 2DE

Simply the most stylish stationer in London, this tony temple has produced bespoke, engraved, and flat-printed stationery for more than 120 years. It carries elegant paper, cards, and envelopes, as well as leather-bound diaries, including the Little Black Book for phone numbers and the purple mock-croc Fashion Notes. (Classicists can choose traditional versions.) Polite and helpful staffers on Bond Street (other locations include Sloane Street, Westbourne Grove, Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, and Heathrow Terminals 3 and 4) make browsing a pleasure. Newly installed design director Samantha Sheffield—wife of U.K. Conservative Party leader David Cameron—has ushered the brand into the 21st century without compromising its venerable heritage. Especially fun are the cheeky cards and invitations, as well as stationery-inspired bags, travel wallets, and passport holders with leather finishing and envelope-style flaps.
