Leaf from Sandra Dieckmann (£11.99)

If you love the tropical trend so much that you want to cover yourselves in leaves and run through a jungle then you do you. If you’d rather read an adorable picture book about a bear who does that then Sandra Dieckmann’s leaf is the book for you. Stunningly illustrated, the heartwarming tale tells the story of a polar bear who gets lost in a jungle and goes to extreme lengths in an attempt to find his way home.

“Midnight Jungle” 2018 diary from Ohh Deer (£11.95)

Stationery kings Ohh Deer obviously have faith in the tropical trend as they believe it will go at least into 2018 – shown by them releasing this “Midnight Jungle” diary illustrated by Natasha Durley. Inverting the colour scheme makes this diary fitting for any season (as it should be given that it’s a diary).
