Parker IM Pen: Mother’s Day Gift Idea {Giveaway}

Parker Pen

Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday May 12th and this time I am bringing you a fabulous Mother’s Day gift idea along with a fun reader giveaway.

Why not take the time to hand-write a personal note for her this Mother’s Day? A note saying “thank you” for all of her sacrifices and her dedication. Add a Parker IM pen to your personal note and make it a stylish and thoughtful gift that she will both appreciate and love.

The Parker IM pen is modern, elegant and versatile. It is made with high quality materials and it is designed for comfort and high-performance.

I love the classy and feminine look of the Parker IM and how smooth it is when you write.  I am a fan of Parker pens and I believe they make timeless presents, they also come in a beautiful box that makes them perfect for gifting.

You can find Parker IM pens and other Parker pens at fine writing specialty stores throughout Canada as well as Basics, Wallacks, Novexco, Boutique Du Stylo, Charals, Le Parchemin and Staples with prices ranging from $32 to $80 depending on the model of choice.

Parker is celebrating their 125th anniversary this year! For more information and to browse the selection of Parker pens visit www.parkerpen.com.
