good idea: pen heaven

i received product to facilitate this review but all opinions are 100% mine. 

confession: i may have two kids, own a car and have graduated from college almost 10 years ago, but i only feel like a real grown-up when i hold a good, solid pen. i know, it's weird. but the weight of a good pen in my hands is such an official feeling.

pen heaven -- a UK-based online retailer of specialty pens, including classics like cross pens, parker pens and italian calligraphy sets -- sent me a bright pink parker rollerball pen to try out and i was in love as soon as i opened the gift-wrapped box. i could tell this wasn't your typical pen when i had to assemble it myself (the ink shaft is packaged separately, so you unwrap and put the pen together before use), and i was obsessed with the steady flow of thick ink right away.


ha, we watched one of my favorite movies last night (this is a quote from the secret life of walter mitty) -- even movie quotes look more professional with the parker pen!

pen heaven has a giant range of pens, from ballpoint to rollerball to pen sets and fountain pens. their staff is highly trained (you can call customer service monday through friday to get help with your order) AND they offer engraving services for most pens, so you can give one of these fancy pens a personal touch as a gift for graduation, birthdays or anniversaries. (as i discovered -- any time you think someone should be treated like a grown up, obviously.)
