Here at The Pen Shop, we are utterly fanatical about pens. This is not only evident in our physical stores, but our head office staff also share this passion for the humble pen.
With thousands of writing instruments and gifts to choose from, here’s what The Pen Shop team are hoping to receive this Christmas.
What our staff want for Christmas
Gemma - Head of Customer Service
I’d be delighted if Father Christmas left the Montegrappa Felicita Jellybon Ocean fountain pen in my Christmas stocking! This compact pen would fit perfectly in my handbag. With its typically Italian style, this gorgeous fountain pen is top of my Christmas list!
Colin - Managing Director
Montblanc is the ultimate luxury brand, offering more than just beautiful writing instruments. With fine hand-crafted belts, cufflinks and leather wallets, there’s a whole collection of potential gifts. I'd be happy with any Montblanc gift, as the quality is guaranteed to be exceptional.
I've only recently started at The Pen Shop but as soon as I saw this pen, I just liked it straight away. It is different as it has a modern feel, and I love the almost industrial design. The colour is feminine without being 'in-your-face', which isn't my style.
Helen from our Cardiff Store
I would like a new fountain pen, either a Pelikan Black/Blue M200 so I can have different colour ink to my current favourite fountain pen, the black/green version, or a Montblanc Meisterstuck rose gold fountain pen. I use the ball pen every day but prefer to mainly use a fountain pen, so could make use of both as a matching set.
I'm part of a historical writing society and this new Kingsley set appeals to me on so many levels. This set not only has different nibs to write with, but also comes with this amazing wax seal to use on your letters. I'm going to be the envy of all my friends!
If Santa Claus was feeling particularly generous, I would love some of the large Campo Marzio headphones. Not only are they great quality and good value for money, but my eight-year-old nephew thinks they look cool, so they must be on my wish list!
I'd really like one of the new Secrid RFID wallets. As soon as I spotted the updated designs in the marketing department, I've been after one. They are even more beautiful in the flesh and the Magnolia Bordeaux would go lovely with my new handbag.
