These $10 Gel Pens Would Make a Great Stocking Stuffer

My favorite activity leading up to the New Year is ordering my favorite planner — the Techo Cousin from Hobonichi — and getting it all set up for January 1. I buy a protective cover from Etsy, some index sticky tabs, and new pens. This set from Paper Mate includes 14 vibrant gel roller pens in a convenient click style and would be an excellent option for journaling (bullet or normal) and keeping track of appointments, goals, meals, and everything in between, especially if you like to color-code different categories like I do. (It also happens to be our pick for the best gel pen overall, thanks to its smooth, no-smudge, no-bleed-through flow.) Today, it’s on sale for 70 percent off, bringing the price down from $32 to just under $10 — that’s less than a dollar per pen. They would also make a rather good stocking stuffer for the stationery-head in your life. (And if you’re still shopping for last-minute gifts, check out all of our best ideas here.)
