A Classy Pen

Does your dad love writing? Even though most people use laptops and desktops for their writing work, there are still lots of aspiring writers out there who prefer to manually write things down. A lot of writers will always have a pen with them, just so that they can quickly write ideas down that randomly pop up in their heads.

A classy pen can also be a status symbol, just like some people prefer to drive a certain car over another car. A writer may actually not use a pen all that often, but it still symbolizes the respectful profession of writing.

To make a pen even more of a personal item, you can choose to include an engraving with the name of the writer. A pen with an engraving would make that Father’s Day gift extra special.
