It’s that time of year again where gift-giving is a must in parties and family get-togethers. We’re sure that most of you already wrapped a thing or two for their loved ones. But for those of you that may be starting to look around, here are a few ideas related to fountain pens for someone in your life who loves writing and collecting pens.
Pen-Related Holiday Gift Ideas
A fountain pen is a great idea for someone who writes a lot in their job or is a student, or just someone who might something on the analog side of things – and for these folks, generally a good quality, entry-level, fine or medium nib pen, such as the Dryden Designs ROSE GOLD BUSINESS FOUNTAIN PEN is perfect.
Another pen with high-grade quality and aesthetics is the Dryden Designs FINE NIB MODERN CLASSIC COLLECTION WITH FREE CONVERTER . And you have 7 colors to choose from so you can match the pen you’ll buy with their character.
They are good enough quality that the new user won’t be turned off by mysterious leaks, they are reliable and easy to use, and a way to learn about fountain pens without spending a lot of money. If they want to spend more later, they’ll have learned a bit about what they like or don’t like in a fountain pen.
Sometimes, though, it’s hard to know what to get someone who already has a lot of pens, because chances are good that this person already has very specific tastes or nib sizes or pen brands that they like. This is especially difficult if you don’t know very much about fountain pens yourself. Fountain pen people are not really known for being ‘easy-going’ about their pens and preferences.
As someone who works in a bricks & mortar fountain pen shop, we’ve had our share of visitors who have husbands or friends or co-workers who just love fountain pens! But they just need a bit of guidance on what exactly to get, since it’s hard to know where to start if you’re not a fountain pen user yourself.
Here are some good ideas:
For your loved ones in their collection, give them this pack of ink refills that come in 6 vibrant colors. For only $15.95, they can make their journals or scrapbooks looking better with different colored letters.
Fountain Pen Case
A new fountain pen case will be a good idea too so they can carry their pens in style. They’d surely love something vintage but durable like this leather case on Etsy.
A classy pen needs a classy partner. A leather BoJourn or this leather portfolio with fountain pen holder will make your friend who’s applying to jobs look more professional or your executive uncle look more dashing.
