Take a look around your local high street and chances are you’ll have started to see festive displays filling the aisles. Christmas is rapidly approaching and that means it’s time to get your list sorted pronto, and if you’re looking for the perfect gift for that special someone why not consider a fountain pen?
Fountain pens can be the perfect choice for those that like to be traditional or who want to regain the lost art of handwriting, and anyone that’s tried such a pen won’t want to go back to anything else. But, they can also be ideal for collectors—if you’ve got a fountain pen aficionado in your family then seeking vintage models will be a fantastic way to go, and yours could easily take pride of place on any writing desk. However, a word of warning—if you’re buying someone a fountain pen to be used on a daily basis rather than being kept as a collector’s item you need to bear in mind that it can be an incredibly personal decision, so unless you know the type of pen they normally use it might be best to take them to a pen shop (or direct them to an online alternative) so they can choose one themselves.
But, no matter what way you go you can be safe in the knowledge that you really can’t go wrong. For anyone that loves to write, for a collector or simply for those that like the finer things in life you could well find that a fountain pen makes the perfect gift, so give your loved one a treat this Christmas with the gift of beautiful handwriting.
