Shopping for holiday gifts for friends, family and work associates is a fun activity that will fill the upcoming weeks leading to Christmas and a host of other winter holidays. For the writers on your list, you might consider giving collectible pens. These choice luxury pens, which can be found online at fine writing instrument websites, offer designer styles and a pleasurable writing experience for both men and women on your gift list this holiday season.
At first, you might think that giving a pen for a gift is nothing out of the ordinary. But the types of luxury pens that are the focus here are not common plastic disposable pens. These are collectible fountain pens and other designer pens that are created to last and be used for a lifetime, and each are made with refillable ink cartridges in order to keep the collectible pens fresh and ready to write through the years.
A first step in the process is to visit websites that offer quality fountain pens for sale. Here you will find designer pens from leading manufacturers, which can include Waterman, Waterford, Parker, Cartier, Acme, Visconti, Montegrappa, Padrino, Graf Von Faber Castell, Cross, Dunhill, Bosca and others. Acme, for instance, offers a Limited Edition collectible pens line. Here you will find collectible pens featuring Rocket Hero Buzz Aldrin, the Homer Peel line that got its inspiration from artist M.C. Escher, the Homer Dali line inspired by Salvador Dali, and other types of pens such as the Midas flat pen and Bullet pen, the Endless Summer pen that has 1964 pieces, and the Vortex pen with inspiration from The Blue Man Group. Cartier, known primarily throughout the world as the famous jeweler but also with a fine writing instrument line, offers their Diabolo collectible fountain pens line. This line of Cartier fountain pens for sale features pen barrels in glorious shades of ruby, platinum, gold and blue, or feature chevron or grain d’orge designs. Waterford’s Kilbarry collectible fountain pens line offers these stunning pens in gunmetal grey, guilloche black, guilloche blue and guilloche red. They also feature solid brass and accents of platinum plating. Montblanc makes available their Writer’s Edition fountain pens for sale, which include Virginia Woolf, William Faulkner, George Bernard Shaw and Thomas Mann lines. Every writer and literature enthusiast on your shopping list will react positively to that illustrious group of writers who have pens now named after them.
Ink refills are available for each of the fountain pen brands mentioned, making it easy to switch out the cartridges whenever you need, to keep your new fountain pen writing in top form.

"Turning the familiar theme of kids and unicorns on its head, this sweet story is about a unicorn who believes that little girls are real. This is an imaginative story of friendship and believing." - Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor
Amy Krouse Rosenthal's New York Times bestselling story of friendship, unicorns, and the power of believing!
Uni is just like all the other unicorns . . . except for one thing: she believes that little girls are REAL. This magical story by Amy Krouse Rosenthal (author of I Wish You More) illuminates Uni’s not-so-fantastical dream and celebrates the sparkle of believing.
Uni the unicorn is told there’s no such thing as little girls! But no matter what the grown-up unicorns say, Uni believes that little girls are REAL. Somewhere there must be a smart, strong, wonderful, magical little girl waiting to be best friends. In fact, far away (but not too far away), a real little girl believes there is a unicorn waiting for her, too. This magical story of friendship reminds believers and nonbelievers alike that sometimes wishes really can come true.
