The sun never sets on this midtown house of iconic British stationery and gifts. – In Short
First opened in 1887 on Bond Street in London, the company holds a royal warrant, meaning it supplies products to the Queen herself. Luckily for those who can't get enough of the royalty approved goods, you can match your leather passport case to your wallet, your planner, your correspondence stock, your key chain, and even your backgammon board. Smythson will also stamp any item with silver or gold for a fee. And the cost of quality? If you have to ask, you probably can't afford it.
Hits: Beautiful, elegant stationery makes a great gift for your favorite organized Anglophile.
Misses: This century-old company shows its age more than its imagination in the design of its products.
