So far I don’t believe I have handed my blog over to anyone else to control…that is until now. With a review of one his birthday presents from Goodheart Gifts, I give you my wonderful man, Ross Owen Williams.
Amidst mouthfuls of my gratefully received birthday breakfast in bed, my eager hands dug into a pile of presents. Amongst them, I found a small black box containing something very shiny indeed. A small silver cigar shaped object with my name on the side… a silver doughnut looking thing… curious. These warranted further investigation!
The cigar turned out to be a ballpoint pen and the doughnut thing was much heavier than you might initially expect. The connection came quickly – bringing the two together was easier done than said as the pen virtually found its own way into the centre of the base thanks to the magnet therein. A magnetised, engraved, pen and holder – marvellous!
This has to be one of my favourite presents this year. Firstly, it is great for space-economy. The base unit is no wider than a bottle of pills but sturdy and stable. The pen is also smaller than your standard writing implement but still long enough to offer a firm grip and smooth, flowing writing (even in my typical scrawl!).
It offers more convenience than I first thought too – given that it is sticking up in the air, reaching out to pick it up is easier than fiddling with a scrawny biro and putting it back doesn’t require precision. Get the pen near enough the base unit and let go – gravity and magnetism does the rest! On the purely aesthetic side, it looks fantastic – a classy addition to any desktop. I keep precious little on my desk but this takes pride of place right next to my computer monitor.
An absolute thumbs up on this product from Goodheart Gifts, something I would totally recommend as a birthday, Christmas or wedding present – even for unique christening gifts – whatever the occasion, a practical and beautiful product like this is timeless.
