Paperchase 2018 Advent Calendar Review

On the twenty-fifth (AND FINAL!) day of Blogmas, I give you my FULL review of the Paperchase 2018 Advent Calendar!

🎄🎄🎄

The Paperchase Stationery Advent Calendar was released in late November, much to my EXCITEMENT!

I managed to bagsy myself one A WEEK BEFORE IT WAS OFFICIALLY RELEASED.

Get me!

It was £25 to me as I am a TREATME member, it was advertised as £30 when released and promised to contain £55 worth of stationery goods for the month of December.

One thing I didn’t like when they released the promotional photos for the calendar was they showed you what was in the actual product. I think that just ruins the surprise!

🎄🎄🎄

DAY ONE

Behind window number one was a Cat topped ballpoint pen!

This is actually a really good start to the calendar as you can use this product straight away.

🎄🎄🎄

DAY TWO

I found metallic holographic binder clips that I LOVE!

🎄🎄🎄

DAY THREE

Behind day three’s window was a Santa eraser worth £1.

£1.

For an eraser.

This calendar isn’t really living up to my expectations so far.

🎄🎄🎄

DAY FOUR

Day four’s window was EMPTY.

If Paperchase is going to make this calendar a regular thing – they really need to up their packing game.

I was really disappointed.

🎄🎄🎄

DAY FIVE

See day four.

🎄🎄🎄

DAY SIX

FINALLY SOMETHING.

A silver pen.

After two days of disappointment, I get a silver pen which I probably only use at Christmas time.

🎄🎄🎄

DAY SEVEN

This watercoloured polka dot pad will be perfect for on the go work, especially with my degree!

🎄🎄🎄

DAY EIGHT

I’m not going to lie but this teddy bear eraser creeps me out a bit, I don’t know why. It just does.

🎄🎄🎄

DAY NINE

YEP! YOU GUESSED IT!

Another eraser.

🎄🎄🎄

DAY TEN

Neon sticky tabs are actually quite useful for revision and marking pages in academic texts.

🎄🎄🎄

DAY ELEVEN

A fluffy Llama pen.

Erm.

I’m not sure about this calendar.

🎄🎄🎄

I’m not going to bore you with the rest of the calendar because it’s pretty much the same.

To say I’m disappointed is an understatement.

I got a refund for HALF of the calendar because Paperchase “don’t stock this product” any more which I think is a bit cheeky, considering most of my calendar was missing.

I won’t be rushing to buy this again next year.

🎄🎄🎄

What do you call a blind reindeer?

No eye deer!

Have a lovely Christmas Day!

See you in the new year!
