Sometimes throwback tools convey the “cool” factor, so don’t forget to ask for some low-tech swag too. For instance, writing by hand cements the information in your memory in ways your keyboard can’t. For a tactile communication method that feels oh so good, use a nice fountain pen on good paper.
You could direct your gift giver to HisNibs.com, where the owner personally adjusts the nib on each and every pen he sells before shipment (thanks, Norman). Prefer a flashy starting pen? The Monteverde USA Invincia Nebula (pictured above) with multicolor plating and a black steel nib coated with titanium for extreme durability is available for $80.
Put pen to paper and start your notebook collection with a classic Limited Edition Leather Notebook (pictured right) from Moleskin. It lays flat, has acid-free paper, and the little ribbon bookmark shows you have serious communication game—bragging rights for $39.
