Typo in Abu Dhabi
Get yourself down to funky stationery store Typo for unusual gifts Discuss this article
For some people, the idea of getting stationery in their stocking for Christmas might be somewhat of a disappointment, but Typo is no ordinary stationery shop. We’re not talking about refillable pens and colourful highlighters, we’re talking about funky home décor, beautiful tote bags and superhero-inspired headphones, to name a few.
It was only in July this year that the Australian brand opened its first-ever Abu Dhabi store, in Marina Mall, making its way down the road from Dubai, where there are already six shops (we hear there’s another set to open in Abu Dhabi Mall soon, too).
It might easily have been our favourite new shopping arrival in the capital this year.
But at any time of the year, you’re bound to find something to covet here. And, especially in the lead-up to Christmas, we can’t think of anywhere better to pop in for a few last-minute gift buys for fussy family and pernickety pals. At the moment, you’ll find a whole festive collection in the store, with everything from candles to Christmas decorations, neck pillows to phone covers and plenty more inspiration (Wonder Woman mug, anyone?).
And if you’re planning to revamp your home or office in 2017, this is where you’ll find some great decorative buys that are pretty, practical and full of personality.
