We went through lots of ideas before we decided upon a monogrammed pen as a gift for Mrs. Daw, E.'s teacher. Granted, it's not super exciting but we liked the one that we found, it writes great, it was a good price, and I am a sucker for anything that can be monogrammed.
The company is called Retro 51 and they're tag line is "Life is too short to carry an ugly pen." I don't know about that, but the pen is cute and old-school looking.
We decided to monogram the pen with "Mrs. Daw" rather then her initials as it seemed sweeter since that's what her students call her. I was a little nervous about this and hope she doesn't think we just couldn't remember her name. (!)
We love you, Mrs. Daw.
