Fountain pens make great gifts. The
y're personal, stylish and fun, not

 life.

There are so many fine pens to choo
se from, and you can guarantee pers
onalization by having them engraved
. However, because there are a lot
of options, choosing the "right" pe
n for that special person on your g
ift list can be intimidating. Here
are some tips for making it easy an
d enjoyable instead.

Tip #1: Focus on the other person's
 preferences, not your own.
If you like the same things, you've
 got it made. But that's usually no
t the case. Put yourself in the oth
er person's shoes and you're off to
 a good start.

Tip #2: What type of writing instrum
ent?
There are four choices: Fountain Pe
n, Ball Point Pen, Rollerball Pen a
nd Mechanical Pencil. What type is
used as an everyday writing instrum
ent? How about for special occasion
s like signing documents or writing
 personal correspondence? What is h
is or her profession? Answering the
se questions will help you determin
e the type.

Tip #3: Evaluate a handwriting sampl
e of the person.
This is especially helpful if you'r
e going to pick out a fountain pen.
 And it's easier than it may sound.
 For instance, a fine nib is your b
est bet for smaller writing or writ
ing that has slimmer lines. On the
other hand, a medium to broad sized
 nib works well for writing that's
larger and darker. If the sample wa
sn't written with a fountain pen, i
t will either confirm or change the
 decision you made as a result of T
ip #2.

Tip #4: Decide how much you want to
spend.
This can help you narrow the field
and not get too distracted. But giv
e yourself a reasonable range so yo
u'll still have plenty of choices.
Sometimes a slightly more expensive
 writing instrument will make a big
 difference in quality, performance
 and appearance.

Tip #5: What's the person's style?
Is he or she traditional, a trendse
tter or somewhere in between? Get y
our clues from personal or business
 attire, accessories such as watche
s, jewelry and eyewear, even what t
he person drives. These answers wil
l help you pick a pen brand, finish
, color and more, until you've made
 your final selection.
