It’s true I suffer from an office supply addiction. I get a “high” from the smell of fresh paper and ink. Creative and unusual office notions give me a “buzz.” But the best feeling of all is the pleasure of a new pen in my hand. As much as I love a classic BIC (dramatic black ink in the crystal-style shaft is my favorite) that just won’t do for a Valentine’s Day gift. Here are a few options for the literary love of your life.
It’s hard to go wrong with jewelry for Valentine’s Day. So by combining your beloved’s love of writing with her appreciation of gems you can give her a gift that will have her writing you a sonnet.
If the subject of your love letters does not wear jewelry, then why not go for an elegant fountain pen made to the same standards and quality of fine jewelry? This one, with gold fittings, even has a subtle valentine hue of purple box elder.
If your love travels a more indigenous road. Perhaps a handcrafted Navajo pen cover is more appropriate. There is something very special about a hand-crafted item rooted tradition and spirituality.
What if you want to give something more personal? There’s still time! with this pen-making kit, you can design and create your own pen to give your beloved. It includes all the tools and pieces you need to create a one-of-a-kind wooden pen for your lit-lover.
What if your beloved is into that funky, hipster style? Try this set of Ravi pens. There is one for every mood and whim and each one has a crafty, homespun look.
