lol true. I just thought it would be nice to have a nice pen on his office desk. Perhaps I gotta rethink things here...

Yeah, I spent $300 on a MB pen about 3 years ago, and I've used it probably 10 times.

I never use it because I feel like a female douche bag when I'm with or meeting new clients.

I'll sell you mine for $200 if you want. I have 5 refills too. Some black, some blue.

But a pen is such a bad gift, IMO. The person is always like, gee thanks, wow, a pen. How.... Thoughtful. There are much better ways you can spend the $150 to get something more personal and fun.

Unless, of course, the person asked for a pen!

Good luck!

PM me for pen details if interested.

you might want to check out Parker. They are very good quality made pens. I especially like their premier black edition pens. But they may be priced a bit higher than your budget.

check them out here: www.parkerpen.com

Out of my budget is for sure.
I checked out their pens on some online sites and they are quite pricey. Also, Cartier pens are crazy expensive (even though their watches aren't so bad).

Is he a scotch drinker?

As for chocolate check out Fannie May...doesn't have the "snob appeal" of Godiva but IMHO (I only eat dark chocolate anyway) their chocolate is much better

I'm not sure. I know he does have a wine cellar though. I have never seen him drink scotch (only wine and beer) so I would have to say no. Thanks for the fannie may link. I will check it out to see what they offer.

I bought one like this a few years back for 425$


(not mine, found a picture online)

it is the Starwalker by Mont Blanc

always looks good in meetings no matter what the other person is writing with.
I saw it once, loved it, bought it and I don't regret it..
People compliment it all the time..

also, it has a kind of ass pennies appeal to it.
