Back in elementary school I was forced to use those horrible erasable pens, and later only got to use the cheapest by-the-box pens for school work. At home, though, I wrote my penpals letters with the fanciest pens I could afford. Can you relate?
My first Parker pen was a quite-heavy light purple-coloured ballpoint one. I’d been eyeing it for months, in this little bookstore near where I lived in Auckland, New Zealand. Close to when I was leaving the country, I stopped in to the bookstore one last time—and my pretty purple pen was on for half price! Of course, I grabbed it right away. I still have that pen, and now have another Parker pen. Looks like I will need a third in order to really have a collection, right? Well, the holidays are coming up—so, take the hint people!
Even if you don’t write letters regularly, a beautiful pen like the Parker IM pen I received, will be well-used this time of year. Think of all the Christmas cards, invitations and thank-you letters you’ll be writing this season—why would you want to use an inferior quality pen to do so? I’m sure all of us know someone who’d love or have always dreamt of having a lovely pen like this for a holiday gift.
I received the Gunmetal Parker IM pen with black ink, which I absolutely love. The pens are also available in other colours and finishes including Premium Etched Matte (black, metallic and pink) and Chiseled Chrome.
The Parker IM, along with many other models of Parker pens, is available at Staples and throughout Canada at fine writing retailers with prices ranging from $18 to $80 depending on the model of choice. For more information, visit www.parkerpen.com.

A small annual letter tucked into a Christmas card is what we try for, because a lot of the people we only touch base with once a year.
