I am a writer and part of that means that I really love to write. One of the things that I have gotten lazy with is journaling. Journaling used to be a part of my daily life and I am determined to make it that way again in 2015. I really want to be able to write and keep amazing journals that my children can cherish when they are older. For that reason I love finding great new pens to write with and really enjoy when I can journal in different colors based on my moods.
Sarasa 14 Pack
I had actually put a set of different colored pens on my Christmas list for my husband so when I received the Sarasa 14 Pack of Retractable Gel Pens (retail for these is $1.64 each) I gave them to him to put up. I will admit that it is killing me to not use these yet and to know that they will be sitting in the basement for six more weeks!
First off I love that there are 14 different colors. This means that my journal for 2015 is going to be even more beautiful than I had originally imagined. It also means that my calendar is going to be very well organized. That’s right…each person in our family can have their own color which means that each person is going to instantly know what they have going on. This is going to make my life so much easier in so many ways.
I am excited for an easy tool to help me to stay organized as we approach the new year.
I also think that these pens would be great for someone who enjoys writing or drawing at any level. I am sure that my children will love them and that it is going to be a struggle for them to not swipe them. I also want to mention that while this is a gel pen it features a “rapid dry” technology which makes it a great choice for someone who is left handed who might otherwise not be able to use gel pens without them smudging.
The Stylus Pens (retail value is $4.99 each) that I received are very cool. I love how they feature a stylus at one end and a pen at the other. One of these is definitely going in my son’s stocking and the other one will probably go in the pile of gifts that I want for me. LOL! I love the idea of being able to use a stylus although I have honestly never tried one. One thing to note about these is that they can be shortened so that they are perfect for carrying with you. However you can pull them out so that they are full sized pens as well.
Zebra Pens makes a full line of pens and features something for everyone. You can choose the pen that is going to fit your needs and your style best and you will be happy with the quality. I have owned a lot of Zebra products in the past and have never been disappointed with anything that I have owned. Plus you can purchase them everywhere…most local stores and even some drug stores will have these on their shelves. It really does make it a great stocking stuffer and something that you can readily pick up.
