This year when choosing a birthday gift for a guy, it doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming. Guys are pretty simple and easy going: just think of something he'll use often such as a phone, electrical shaver, or ipod. Monica perfers purchasing something that has meaning. It has to be something useful and for him to enjoy with others. She recommends purchasing a Wii Video Game System, or a pair of tickets to a concert or major sporting event!
She may sound really old fashioned, but Micky still believes that one of the most elegant gestures a man can make is to reach inside his pocket and lend a lady a pen to take a quick note. Micky always carry around a small notebook but she's also prone to forgetting to bring a pen to write with. A nice pen is not only useful to lure in the opposite sex but its especially handy if he’s a businessman. For instance, if you’re giving a pen to your sweetheart, you can bet he’ll remember you with love every time he uses it to sign an important contract and the same goes for any men in your family. On the other hand, if you’re thinking of giving a pen to your boss, you’ll be giving him something that he can actually use - keeping it strictly work-related and appropriate. He'll consider your gift when writing up your annual performance evaluation. If the guy you're giving the gift to is still in school, a pen is also something he'll use everyday. Maybe a less expensive but modern and elegant ballpoint pen would be better pick in this situation.
Micky has seen pens that cost more than a car, but since that’s way out of most budgets for gift giving, here are a couple of ideas for you.
For a less expensive pen that looks so great no one will ever know its on sale, you can go for a Zebra Jimnie Clip Ballpoint Pen. For $18, this retractable ballpoint pen delivers neat, accurate lines with smooth flowing ink. What more can you ask for?
If, on the other hand, you’re willing to spend a little more, Micky suggests getting a beautiful Waterman Harmonie Chrome Fountain Pen in Blue and Grey. You can never go wrong with this classy model. Its not too heavy, so writing with it is easy. Fountain pens require a little getting used to, but it’s worth it.
