Adult School Supplies -- Because You Don't Have To Go To Class To Be a Total Nerd

I still love notebooks and pencils and stamps and erasers and anything that makes me feel like I'm about to LEARN SOMETHING.

As the nerdiest child who has ever existed, I used to majorly get down with some school supplies. (I was also super-psyched to go to first grade from kindergarten because I heard we were going to get HOMEWORK.) Some things never change! Today I still love notebooks and pencils and stamps and erasers and anything that makes me feel like I'm about to LEARN SOMETHING.

I can't even bring myself to get a Kindle because I need to smell the books.

I also know that our editors here have superior taste, so I asked around to bring you some of the best school supplies for grown-ups. Our picks below.

Julianne's Picks

 

An iPhone case that looks like a 2nd generation Gameboy

A 2GB Flash drive that looks like a harmonica

 Ninja Throwing Star Push Pins

 iPod dock/charger that looks like a book

Hannah's Picks

Really cool patterned masking tapes

Enamored Pencil Set (The whole store is really awesome.)

 From the desk of Rubber Stamps

Really pretty sewn notecards

I know this sort of a novelty but it is so cute! I just think adults need to send more letters.

 Eric's Picks

I am really into designed tape, like this camo tape.

 

Or this Japanese Masking Tape

 

This reminds me of those robot arms that spray paint cars on assembly lines. McQueen used them to paint a dress on Shalom for the finale of his 2001 show.
