As with all the personalised notebooks and journals, each can be personalised with a choice of artwork cover, foil and by adding your own name.

For the entrepreneur 

If there is one thing that all entrepreneurs have in common it's that they are brimming with ideas. And you never know when inspiration is about to strike - so it's very important to always have a notebook with you to capture them. The big ideas notebook is perfect for just that, hardwearing and can handle life in a handbag. It's also spiral bound, so it lays flat - perfect for mind mapping - and it means you can write in it wherever you are - planes, trains, buses, the tube...
