I work hard at making sure my loved ones get just the right gift for Christmas.  Yes, I know it is NOT about the gift, but I love seeing their face when they open up the gift I got them.  It is most exciting to see the joy on my sons face, as it is all still so magical to him. (and now we get to see the magic all over again with our daughter.)  Well, this year, I have a bit of a dilemma.  I was sent an AWESOME  DARTH VADER gel ink pen from Cross. As soon as I was told about it, I knew it was going to be a gift - to me, from me!  It arrived and I was impressed.  (I am a new Star Wars fan, I will admit that, but I know of all the characters from my husband and son!)    I sat it over on the bookshelf, as I was going to use it to address all of my Christmas cards. 
As soon as a certain 6 year old came home and saw it, he was so excited!
"Mom!!!!  Thank you so much, I LOVE my pen!!!"  Except, the pen is STILL not for him!  
The Darth Vader gel pen arrives in a nice box with the Star Wars logo on it too.

I tried to get a front and back shot for you to see all of the detail they put on it.
On the front, you have VADER with the Darth Vader mask on the clip.  On the back, you have the Star Wars logo and the cross logo.

I was very pleased with the writing.  The gel pen gives it a nice smooth flow about it.  I did not notice any area's where it skipped or anything like that. (Like I have noticed with other pens.) I am sorry kiddo, but this pen is mamas!!!! Yeah, I had to break the news to him.  It was not a gift for him, but rather a treat for me.  I will share with him from time to time, but this is one I will be holding on to tightly!!! 
If you know a Star Wars fan, you will want to look at the Star Wars Collection at Cross.  They have Darth Vader, C-3P0 and of course, the Storm Trooper.  Head on over to check it out!!!

As if it being Star Wars isn't enough...

  1. That does look like a great writing pen! Gel pens do work better than others in my mind.
