We specialise in personalised gifts, ideal for celebrating an important occasion. Our tailored collection for men focuses on classic finishes with a weighty feel, and for women we have picked slim designs in elegant colours. To commemorate a very special occasion such as graduation, our sterling silver pens are a good choice. Make your gift personal with our engraving and embossing service, and finish it off with giftwrap. Read our gift guide for some tips and advice.
Gifts for HimIs ‘he’ proving quite difficult to buy for? We have tailored our gifts for him range with chunkier, weighty pens in classical finishes such as silver and gloss black. Otto Hut have a wide range of sterling silver pens in masculine designs that won’t break the bank. For the gadget king, the fisher space bullet pen can write in zero gravity and is considered a design icon. For the man who loves to travel, try our handmade leather journals. For the Businessman? Filofax naturally.
Gifts for HerOur carefully selected range of gifts for women includes plenty of colour to help accessorise with a bag, and lighter weight, slimline pens to suit a ladies hand. The Waterman Hemisphere is popular, with chic elegant lines and a slim profile. The Parker Sonnet in pearl has a pretty interplay between brilliant white lacquer and resplendent pink gold. Our Amalfi petit leather journal slips easily into a handbag, whilst the Filofax Saffiano could double as a clutch with its zip closure.
Sterling Silver PensCelebrate a special occasion with the gift of a sterling silver pen. The precious metal’s solid weight adds to the premium feel, and bestows on the writer a more controlled writing experience. All our silver pens are hallmarked, giving you the assurance the silver confirms to standards of fineness and purity. Otto Hut, made in Germany, offer great value with pens starting at £69. Our engraving service generates a subtle, light metallic finish that complements the sterling silver.
Gifts for ChildrenA child’s pen should be comfortable to hold and fun to write with. Our range focuses on ergonomic grips and vibrant designs, many of which can be engraved with a name or initials (keeping it safe at school). The Lamy ABC and Safari have been developed for children (the latter being recommended by many schools). Their fountain pens offer a beginners nib with a rounded tip, making it easier to use. Our Yoropen has a revolutionary ergonomic grip which encourages the child to hold the pen correctly.
Graduation GiftsAttention to detail is vital for your graduate to be taken seriously in the workplace. We have selected pens with smart styles and finishes (gleaming chrome, gold trim, sterling silver) that will strike the right tone. We have also included Filofax organisers and leather journals to give your graduate the edge in meetings. It is well worth browsing Cross Pens, characterised by gleaming metal and sleek lines borne out of Art Deco. Otto Hut is a great status symbol, offering sterling silver at fantastic value.
Gadget PensWith special features and bold, eye-catching looks, these unique pens would make a great surprise for artists, designers and techies. The Fisher Space pen features a pressurised ink cartridge that can write at any angle and in extreme conditions. The USUS is almost impossible to break, held together by magnets and dispensing with loose parts. We had to mention Lamy, pioneers of modern pen design. Their Dialog 3 fountain pen doesn’t have a cap, using a twist mechanism to pop the nib in and out of an airtight chamber.
Stocking FillersGifts for under £20, many of which can be personalised with an engraving or embossing.

Gift Buyers Guide
Buying a pen for someone else can feel daunting, given the huge choice and personal nature of a pen. The author Paulo Coelho described the pen as ‘….an extension of the writer's hand and desire’. It’s therefore important to think about your recipient to get it right. Read more...
The writing mechanisms of ballpoint pens are similar to rollerball pens but there are several differences. While a ballpoint pen uses a thick oil-based ink, the rollerball pen uses liquid ink. This key difference makes the rollerball feel smother and more liquid, giving it a more fluid action which is comparable to a fountain pen. Read more...
