Great Christmas Gifts for Men
When it comes to Christmas Gifts for men, I really don’t know what to buy. I browse the web, the flyers and I always end up buying the same gifts for my man: some gadget for the phone or the computer! It can be great the first year but after 15 years of marriage,  I decided to go for a change! I am going to get him a nice Parker Pen!

Why a Parker Pen? My husband is in sales and he is always meeting clients and signing documents! He never had a nice and elegant pen. He either borrows a pen from the client (shameful) or uses a pen borrowed from my son’s  school supply (double shameful).  He never took the time to shop for a stylish and elegant pen! I believe that an elegant pen such as Parker’s makes a great impression.


Parker IM Chiseled Gunmetal Ballpoint Pen : Great Christmas Gifts for men ( and women too)

The pen comes into a nice box!

My husband (who got his Christmas gift way too early) was excited to open the box.  It was a nice ballpoint metallic pen. It came with a Parker Refill. My husband was happy to assemble it. It took only few seconds to do so! I wish there were some instructions on how to add the refill because I am not a techy person at all but I guess it is so easy that anyone (except me) can do it!

As soon as he assembled the Parker IM pen, he tried it! The pen offers a smooth writing experience, while being hard-wearing and reliable. He started writing with it. He found it provided him with a great handwriting! What do you think?

I tried the Parker IM too, and also found that it offered a smooth-writing and stylish experience. It is simple and elegant. It writes well and does not leave ink blotches. I found out it is slightly heavy if I wrote with the cap on it! This is because I have tiny hands! But my husband found it was perfect for his hands! It didn’t slip!

The Parker Pen is the perfect gift for the holidays. I think their pens make great Christmas gifts for men! It can also be a great gift for the teachers too. I ordered one for my son’s teacher. I am sure he will love it!

Now I need to find another great Christmas gift idea for men. My husband got an early gift and I want to surprise him with another one! Do you have any suggestions for Great Christmas Gifts for men?
