What's better than a bouquet of flowers? A bouquet of pencils, especially if they smell like flowers. We like the Backyards and Gardens of Portugal Scented Pencils for bouquets. They come in five fragrances and the essential oil-soaked wood releases a fresh and delicate waft every time you sharpen the pencil.
But there's no need to stick to florals for Valentine's Day. For obvious reasons, Eye Ball's Heart-shaped Pencils are another popular choice for Valentine's bouquets. They come in red and white, for a pretty mixed-arrangement. Traditionalists might like a bunch of General's Semi-Hexes, which look extra cheerful tied off in red ribbon.
The iconic Blackwing 602 always makes for a refined bouquet, or swap out the erasers in a dozen Blackwing Pearls for a rosebud look. And for a truly luxurious and fragrant pencil arrangement, a dozen Caran d'Ache Swiss Woods are sure to impress. We also like tying Key Ring Bullet Sharpeners onto pencil gifts--the gift that keeps on giving!
"I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."
Additional expressions of love include the red and black Emilio Braga Cloud Print notebook, which is perfect for writing love poems and recording daydreams. Or grab a fistful of Mini Heart Pencils to hand out to everyone you love and pop into Valentines.
Big-Dippers are red,
Color-texes are blue,
We really love pencils,
And hope you do too!
