Sheaffer Prelude Mini Ballpoint Pen Review and Giveaway

Our fine friends at Sheaffer Pen were very kind and sent me a beautiful Sheaffer Mini Ballpoint Pen to try (and keep!). I have always been jealous of my husband's fancy and expensive Cross pen, and he's been saying for quite a long time that a fancy pen would make a wonderful gift for me. Well, now he doesn't need to get me one, because I have a beautiful pen from Sheaffer!

Sheaffer Prelude Mini Ballpoint Pen in Rose Gold Shimmer

I am very particular about my pens. I don't care for gel pens- they're just too inky, and I've always preferred a plain old BIC ballpoint pen to many others. Well, guess what... BIC is a division of Sheaffer! When I opened the package that was sent out to me a couple of weeks ago, I was greeted by a beautiful box with the Sheaffer logo printed right on the front. When I opened the lovely box, a beautiful rose colored pen lay before me- just waiting for me to pick it up and start writing. I needed to make a grocery list, so I put the pen right to work!

Sheaffer Prelude Mini Ballpoint Pen in Rose Gold Shimmer

It's a wonderful pen! It's a miniature size, so there's no fumbling around with it. It fits very well in my checkbook wallet, too- which is wonderful! Physically, the pen is just lovely. It's a Rose Gold Shimmer, featuring Nickel Plate Trim. The Suggested Retail Price of this pen is $40.00!

The Sheaffer Prelude Mini Ballpoint Pen is available in six different finishes:
*Brushed Chrome Plate Featuring Nickel Plate Trim SRP $40.00
*Black Laque' Featuring Gold Tone Trim SRP $40.00
*Black Onyx Laque' Barrel with Chased Palladium Cap Featuring Nickel Plate Trim SRP $40.00
*Rose Gold Shimmer Featuring Nickel Plate Trim SRP $40.00
*Translucent Red Featuring Gold Tone Trim SRP $40.00
*Gloss White Featuring Nickel Plate Trim SRP $40.00

I think this pen would make the perfect gift for just about any occasion, and with graduation ceremonies coming up, if you're looking for a gift for grads, this will be a gift they will use and cherish for many, many years!
