Artori Eraser Broom (P349.75)
We never knew a pencil could look so gorgeous. This sleek design from Artori is simple, with just enough kitsch to be interesting. Sweeping mistakes has never been more fun with an eraser tip shaped like bristles that work better and last longer than the usual reddish stub. We’re starting again on a clean slate.
Available at Hobbes and Landes
Lollipop Pen (P79)
Writing was never so sweet until we found these adorable lollipop-shaped pens. They looked so real from afar, we were actually a bit disappointed that they turned out to be inedible-but then we got over it and fell head over heels for the cuteness.

Wizard of Oz notebook by 7321 Design (P250)
Call it Wicked fever, but we had to stop ourselves from snapping up all the stock they had of these Wizard of Oz notebooks. The cover designs have just the right level of old-school whimsy, inspiring you to write on and on and on.

Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion (P45 for 75ml, P149 for 250ml, P224 for 400ml)
The classic gets a new look-and it's amazingly Earth-friendly. Nivea's go-to lotion still has the formula that's been keeping skin healthily moisturized for over 100 years, now in new bottles that are made with only 15% plastic and 100% recyclable. We'd call that a winning makeover.
Available at leading supermarkets
