Its pretty much crunch time if you are looking to get some stocking stuffers, or a last minute small gift for that co-worker or borderline friend you may or may not really like. I dug up a few sale items and pretty nice items that would work well for you, so lets take a quick look, hopefully one or more of these will meet your needs or at least spark some other ideas.
So lets start off with being cheap and honest. I personally want nothing to do with these pens, but pretty much everyone loves the Pilot Frixion erasable pen, so who am I to disagree. The thing is, even if you don’t love these yourself, the price makes them pretty hard to pass up. On average these will run you close to $16, or $1.60 per pen, but for whatever reason you can grab the 10 pack now for only $7.14 or $0.71 per pen. If you want to save about 60% on a gift that someone might really like, this 10 pack of Pilot Frixion Pens via Amazon is a no brainer! (Buy via Amazon for $7.14)
So lets assume for a minute that unlike me, there are 1-2 people out there who you actually like, and getting them a pack of Pilot Frixion erasable pens wont cut it. I’ll tell you right now what WILL cut it, its the Uniball Kuru Toga, unless of course the person you are getting it for doesn’t value awesome things, if thats the case scroll back up and get them the Pilot Frixion pens. But for that awesome person (don’t lie, you are getting this for yourself) you cant beat the amazing performance of the Uniball Kuru Toga. The lead mechanism rotates automatically as you write so its always sharp! And guess what, its cheap as heck right now. On average, this will set you back $5.17 but for now its only $4.40, which is the lowest price ever, for a pretty nice savings of 15%. (Buy via Amazon)
Lastly, there is this Bellroy Notebook cover. It takes a big jump up in terms of price point compared to the last two items, but its a heck of a nice little gift for someone that would appreciate it. Bellroy is know for their minimalist but high quality leather products, and this notebook cover is a prime example. It will house a nice 3.5″ x 5.5″ notebook like a Field Notes brand notebook as well as a few credit cards or business cards plus a pen and maybe some cash or other small paper items like receipts. Oh, and if notebooks aren’t your gift recipients thing, they might be the owner of a passport, which would also fit pretty nicely in here. (Buy via Huckberry)
