Here at The Pen Shop we are utterly fanatical about pens. This is not only evident in our physical stores around the country but our head office staff also share this passion for anything to do with the humble pen.
With literally thousands of writing instruments and gifts to choose from we thought we would let our staff tell you themselves what they want for Christmas and why.
What do our staff want for Christmas?
I’d be delighted if Father Christmas left the Montegrappa Mule in my Christmas stocking! It’s made from polished copper and is the perfect feminine rose gold shade and has a beautiful engraved nib! With its typically Italian style and a nod to Moscow this gorgeous fountain pen is top of my Christmas list!
I'd really like one of the calligraphy sets! The Sheaffer maxi kit would be perfect as its colourful and as someone who is new to it and wants to learn, it is the perfect gift as it comes with a instruction book on how to do it.
The Montblanc Augmented paper set is a huge leap in writing technology. To be able to use a luxury Montblanc pen in a meeting and for it to digitally convert my handwritten notes into digital text is a game changer. It brings together traditional handwriting and digital technology in an exciting new way.

I would love the Finsbury Filofax Organiser this Christmas – I love feeling organised both at work and at home. Two small children bring with them endless school events and appointments and having everything written down is vital! You can customise the Filofax by picking the inserts that suit you such as calendars, to do lists and address pages.
I love the new Campo Marzio collection so it is hard to pick just one piece. The item I do really want is the Moda Ocean Blue Eco Computer Bag. It is great quality leather with lots of useful compartments.

If I don't get a Secrid wallet I'd be very upset given I've dropped lots of hints! A family member was a victim of RFID card fraud on the tube in London it took a lot of hassle to sort it with the bank. I'd feel safer with a RFID protection wallet and the Secrid ones are lovely and stylish.

If Santa Claus was feeling particularly generous I would love a bottle of Caran d’Ache turquoise ink to go with my fountain pen collection. It’s a glorious bright blue and comes in a bottle which not only looks amazing, but is designed to make filling your fountain pen easier!
