Left-handed Notepads

These handy notepads are the same as any regular ones, they just open in the reverse direction and the binding is on the right-hand side in order to suit lovely lefties! The ring-bound notepad is available in dot grid line, ruled or plain paper. Links in images.

Left-handed Pencil Sharpener

what do you buy a left-handed student?

This two-holed pencil sharpener allows you to hold a pencil in your left hand and turn it in an anti-clockwise direction. Sharpening a pencil has never been so easy!

Left-handed Geo Sets


This geometric, 30cm three-piece kit is designed with left-handers in mind. It is ergonomically designed with clear graduations and reversed scales for easier tracing. The set contains 30cm ruler, 45 degree/21cm set square and 180 degree/12cm protractor.

We love this set of six white pencils with ‘left handed right minded’ running down each one. Perfect.

Left-handed Fountain Pen


This beautifully designed Lammy fountain pen uses an ink cartridge. It has a polished, steel nib and is available in medium (M) / extra fine (EF) / fine (F) / broad (B) and is happily also available in a left-handed design. Get scribbling!

Left-handed Mouse


This mouse has been ergonomically designed to suit the needs of left-handed people. It’s made with textured rubber side grips and although it is aimed at gamers, there is no reason why it can’t be used for all your other computer needs.

Mouse Mat


Just what every left-hander needs – a left-handed mouse mat!

Left-handed Corkscrew


This cute corkscrew looks just like any other but it actually turns anti-clockwise, the natural direction for any lefty. Helpfully this little chap has a bottle cap remover tool as well. We think that this makes it a left-handed student essential!

Left-handed Can Opener


It is a well-known fact that students survive mostly on beans on toast. Prevent a lefty from starvation by giving them a can opener that’s designed to make this task even easier!



Brighten up any student accommodation with this colourful ‘Proud Left Hander’ cushion from Redbubble. It is made from 100% spun polyester with the option of a polyester insert.

Left-handed Mug


This mug speaks for itself! It is available in 7 styles and 2 sizes.
