I first stumbled upon the Jumping Tangents online gift shop when looking for Cameron's Christmas present – a wooden handled wax seal in the letter 'E'. Not only did I find exactly what I was looking for, but I found a haven full of other treats for writers!
Jumping Tangents is essentially a paperie & design store, which is based in Wanaka, New Zealand. They sell beautiful imported European stationery including quills, ink and writing sets, notebooks, diaries and leather journals. A delight for the writer who loves history or just wants to be surrounded by exquisite objects.
For all the readers out there (and writers too!) they have a fun range of products with the slogan “reading is sexy”- mugs, fridge magnets, and T-shirts. http://www.jumpingtangents.co.nz/shop_product.php?page=0&sci=103&pi=1263
They also sell books, fine chocolates, clothing, and jewellery. My latest delight is their range of Frida Kahlo (my favourite painter) rings, brooches and earrings. http://www.jumpingtangents.co.nz/shop_product.php?page=0&sci=156&pi=2010
Jumping Tangents don't just have great products on a user friendly website, they follow it up with fast, personal service and fabulous gift wrapping. Remember them when you next buy a present for someone special in your life. Or just visit them now and treat yourself!
