It's the beginning of November, which means it's time to start organizing for the holidays. Pencils make great gifts, but they can also help you plan and decorate through the final two months of the year.
There are so many things to keep track of at this time of year: to-do lists, gift ideas, travel plans, recipes, and more. Our ledger from Write Notepads can help you keep track of all of it. And if you want to really up your organization game, you can color code your lists with the Blackwing Colored Pencils set. The bright colors (including silver!) will keep your Thanksgiving grocery list separate from your Christmas packing list, plus they are creamy and fun to use.
Viking may have drilled holes in their election pencils so officials could tie them to polling booths, but this year we're tying them to our gift-wrapping station so we never have to search all over the house for a writing utensil. Tie them to your refrigerator, kitchen counter, or around your neck.
The holidays are the perfect excuse to get some really fun writing utensils. Between cards, envelopes, gift tags, and place cards, there are many opportunities to bust out your best handwriting. The Caran d'Ache Metallic Jumbo Pencils come in five colors and add a little shimmer to any of these occasions.
Hester & Cook make a White Midtown Pencil (think of a super creamy colored pencil in white) that I swear makes everyone's handwriting look better. Use it on a dark envelope or spice up some plain craft paper wrapping with a custom design.
We like keeping some extra Bridge Pencils and Gold Magic Pencils around. They look darling tied to gifts, used for parlor games, or handed out as party favors. Remember: Pictionary is more fun in multicolors.
