Best Gifts for Fountain Pen Users

The holiday season may be far away, but who says gift giving has to wait until then? Now is a good time as any to buy your fountain pen enthusiast friend or loved one something they will appreciate. 


Choosing the right present can be a little tricky, especially if you don’t know much about fountain pens. Fortunately, there are many options to shop for that will surely bring joy to someone who loves collecting fountain pens. 


Here are some of the best gifts for fountain pen users that you can get:


Fountain Pen Ink Bottles

People who use fountain pens can never have enough ink! Part of what makes this hobby fun is experimenting with different ink colors, textures, and finishes. Given that, you really can’t go wrong with getting someone a bottle of their favorite fountain pen ink. 


Choosing fountain pen inks can be a little overwhelming since there are so many different brands and types on the market. One of the best and safest options to gift a fountain pen user is anything from the Pilot Iroshizuku line like the Pilot Iroshizuku Ajisai 50ml ink bottle. This ink is popular for several reasons: it performs well, has a range of beautiful colors, and comes at a fairly reasonable price point for the quality.


Fountain Pen Cleaning Kit

Someone with a large collection of fountain pens will also need a few supplies to keep their writing instruments in pristine working condition. Pen cleaning instruments are a greatly appreciated gift for this reason. 


You can pick up a few individual items if you know the person’s needs, or you can purchase a pre-assembled fountain pen cleaning kit like the Sailor Maintenance Kit. It has the basics for fountain pen cleaning: a blunt-tipped syringe, washing nozzle, and cleaning cloth. For more advanced fountain pen maintenance, you can also buy a pen loupe, brass sheets, or micro mesh. 


Fountain Pen Case

Anybody who has a fountain pen needs a pen case. If you know someone who has several fountain pens, then a pen roll is a suitable gift that will keep their writing instruments safe.


You can also consider individual pen cases like the Caran D'Ache Pen Case (1 Slot) - Léman Leather. Any fountain pen lover will appreciate this gift because it allows them to carry their daily pen safely and stylishly. Cases come in many styles, materials, and colors, so it is relatively easy to choose something that will fit your recipient’s personality and preference. If you’re unsure about which one to get, a black or brown leather fountain pen case is almost always a safe choice.


Fountain Pen-Friendly Paper

Without the right paper to write on, fountain pens would not be as enjoyable to use. There are many considerations when choosing the best paper for your pen person, such as thickness, texture, whiteness, and of course, cost. 


High-quality paper needn’t be too expensive, which is why Clairefontaine is a good choice for gift buyers. It’s thick enough at 90gsm with an excellent dry time and smooth writing surface. Clairefontaine notebooks also come in a wide range of colors, so there is something for everyone. 


The Bottom Line

There are many creative ways to surprise someone who loves fountain pens. It may not be another pen, but the above gifts for fountain pen users can enhance the writing experience.
