The “Friend” mini notebooks make a great stocking stuffer for your kids, or as gift for their friends, or even for your BFF. Personally I would love to get one of these from a friend. They are great for passing notes, not in class though, or a quick to do when you’re on the run. The second set would be great for your more mature self and friends.
