My mother presented me with a ballpoint pen and pencil set like this one for high school graduation may years ago. I still use them in 2017.
With the approach of Hannukah, Christmas, and the gift-giving season in general, it seems like a good idea to include a few interesting gift ideas for the special men in your life (or perhaps yourself). To start the silver Christmas tree balls rolling, it's hard to go wrong with a sterling silver pen and pencil set from a company like Cross. No need to rely on someone else to lend you a chewed up Bic disposable ballpoint, or a dull pencil with no eraser when these are in your your inside sports jacket or suit coat pocket. Sterling silver not to your taste? The company offers a wide variety of elegant, sophisticated, masculine pen and pencil sets at all price points. Visit their website at: www.cross.com.
