It seems like lately I have about 15 tubes of lipstick in my purse at all times but whenever I need a pen there are none to be found. I’m hoping this clever lipstick pen can help me remedy this problem. [$5, Fred Flare]
There aren’t many opportunities to use an actual pen nowadays: Most companies offer online bill pay, smart phones contain an appointment book and notepad, and ATMs don’t require deposit envelopes anymore. But every once in a while, you might want to send a handwritten note or greeting card, instead of an e-card. On those rare occasions, we hope you use The Seven Year Pen, which will last at least seven years. This high-quality marker is also eco-friendly because it reduces waste — think of how much discarded pens contribute to our plastic waste. The Seven Year Pen comes in five designs, but we’re partial to the glasses because we like to indulge our inner style geek.
