Gift Ideas for Handwriters

Recently in the mail I received two cards with personal "handwritten" notations inside. Amidst the bills and junk mail, I found mail I really wanted to read! I realized then that I don't write letters anymore. I either make a call on the cell phone or send off a quick e-mail to those I care about. But there is something so special about receiving a handwritten letter in the mail.

So I am determined to give this simple gift to those who need a bright moment in their day. I have underestimated the value of a personal note that can lift the spirit of others. Old fashioned? Yes, and quaint and sincere.

1st wish: I would like to obtain a LAMY Joy Calligraphy Pen. With a little practice, I think I can not only send a card or letter that will surprise someone, but it can be specially written as a well.

I also need some nice quality fountain-pen-friendly paper to use with my LAMY Joy Calligraphy Pen. Clairefontaine Triomphe stationery tablets and envelopes are just perfect for writing letters!

2nd wish: This wish is for my husband. When we had been married three years I bought him a very nice pen and pencil set. I had engraved on both "3rd". He still has this pen. Now that we are approaching our thirty-seventh anniversary, I would like to get him a really special pen once more.

I think the Platinum President vivid blue fountain pen with a bottle of Noodler's Ink is just what he'd like. I like the color and line and I think he will too.

3rd wish:  Included in the fun stuff I would like to get are the Platinum Preppy Highlighters - set of 5 with St. Patty's Eire & Lighting Blue Noodler's Highlighting Inks.

4th wish:  I have never owned a nice fountain pen. I think for starters, a slim shiny black Lamy Safari fountain pen would be nice.


As an aspiring writer, these are all gifts that I would love to receive and I feel that other writers would love to receive them too! --Lorraine
