Pencil Pals

Isavirtue Pencils

What It Is: A cute collection of engraved pencils available in an assortment of messages and hues. Created in Canada, this roundup of six pencils each features a sweet little message that’s forward-looking, despite the ‘archaic’ nature of even using a pencil. From writing a ‘Text Msg’ to sharing a ‘Happy Mail’, it’s a cute set of school supplies for the lifelong student.

Who It’s For: Your best friend from afar, to write old fashioned letters to each other. Your kid, to outfit their school supplies. Your colleague, to decorate their desk.

What It Costs: $10 for the set.

Where It’s At: Canadian Etsy shop isavirtue.

    cute idea

  11. Karen says:

    Great idea for our grandkids or my husband for the crossword puzzles.

    Sweet, I still make my daily lists & follow up notes in pencil rather than typing them into a device.

  13. Shelley N says:

    nice gift for school age children or certain adults. kind of expensive though.

    Great gift idea

  20. Susan says:

    I think it is a cute idea, but too expensive for me.

  21. Kelly H says:

    cute! But i like using cheap pencils

  22. cheryl mclellan says:

    I like them, but I would not pay the $10, a bit too expensive for me.

  23. Jessica e says:

    It is cute, but i don’t use pencils anymore.

  24. Gigi says:

    I thnk the messages are cute but $10 for pencils, even ones that have messages are too expensive for me.

  25. Shannon says:

    They are a cute gift idea for those who jot down notes or ideas the old fashioned way. I agree with others that the price is a bit high.

  26. Kim Hamilton says:

    This is a cute gift idea! I love the price too. It would be perfect for that teen relative thats always hard to buy for.

  27. mousecat says:

    I like this idea. I think teenage girls would like these (for use is math class maybe!)

  28. Alison K says:

    Dear Lil’ Devas bonus entry: I think this gift idea has a multitude of opportunities to brighten up ones day. Shame you can’t mix n’ match the saying or get them personalized.

  29. Surinder says:

    Work is more fun with nice stationery

  30. AliKira says:

    It’s pretty fun, but I’m not sure to whom I’d give pencils. I would enjoy them more if I wrote with pencils more.

  31. cosmicread says:

    A cute gift to give to a friend who likes to write.

  32. Jennifer Kelsie says:

    My Daughter and her friends would love these!

  33. cookie3 says:
