I can't tell you how nice it was using these top-quality writing supplies from Zebra Pen! I chose to use the F-701 steel ball point pen for addressing the envelopes of my Christmas cards and paying all of those holiday shopping bills. :tear: I have to say that this pen was extremely comfortable to use and glided across the page! The knurled grip made it also very easy to hold, even when my hands began to sweat after looking at my credit card bill!
I also loved using the Sarasa Metallic Pens for writing inside my Christmas cards with. These pens work well on any kind of paper, both light and dark, and added an extra festive flair to all of my personal greetings! Of course, Riley couldn't get enough of the Sarasa Gel Retractable Assorted 10-Pack. All of those brilliant colors fascinated her and really released her inner artist. Her beautiful holiday pictures are now gracing many walls in our home.
Finally, I think the Cadoozles Mechanical Pencils are some of the neatest writing utensils I've seen in years. They look just like a sharpened pencil! I couldn't get over how fun and cool these pencils were and would have loved to have a set of these when I was in school. If Riley were a little older and used pencils regularly, I would definitely buy these for her as a stocking stuffer.
