Write up: 10 best letter writing sets

 

There’s never been a better time than the present to get back into letter writing as national stationery week approaches. Although we communicate with each other more than ever before, unlike our grandparents - or even parents - our emails are unlikely to be loving preserved as their letters have been.

These sets will inspire you to get writing again. For the young there's nothing better than Not On the High Street's Children's Motif paper to help them into their first letters, while Simple Things writing set from the Green Gables is a treat for the eye.

Verdict

Present and correct’s letter set was the best of the bunch. The unusual envelopes are study and the square ruled paper was excellent to write on. For those among you hankering after a more classic touch, the Julie Bell Writing kit from John Lewis was a close second, given the good quality finish.
