The Illuminated Bookmark

Okay, now, no need to worry about what to get me for a gift- one of these Illuminated Bookmarks will do just fine. It’s a bookmark printed on a special film with ink that transmits electricity.

Iso Organizer L

Well, hello there. The Iso Organizer comes in a larger, longer profile, which is pretty perfect for organizing all sorts of papers, mail, and books. It’s made of heavy gauge cold rolled steel (6 lbs.) with a cork underside, so it’ll stay put without scratching the surface underneath. I have the original size (in blue) on my desk and I’m now trying to think if I need this larger version somewhere else. Hmm.

Lenz Pen & Pencil Case

Every so often, do you wish you had a nice pen and pencil case? I know I do. This one from Sonnenleder caught the eye, as it has elastic straps to keep up to 8 writing implements neatly organized. And, yes, sure, most of us rely on keyboards and trackpads nowadays, but it’s still nice to slide a pen or pencil across a page every now and then. (I think I will always prefer it.)

Rule/One

How much do you want the Rule/One? I guess that all depends how often you measure things, or how often you need a straight line. The Rule/One is a aluminum ruler and a pen, all in one. The pen clicks into place inside the spine of the ruler thanks to a strong magnet. With three interchangeable heads (pen on paper, stylus tablet, or lanyard attachment), you can alter it to suit your needs. Plus, its droplet shape makes it suitable as a bookmark as well.

Glass Rulers

Why aren’t all rulers see-through? They sure make a lot of sense, plus they look quite nice as a paperweight. And, of course, you’ll get very accurate drawings and measurements as well. Choose between Inches or Centimeters, or get both (the metric system is international, after all).
