Holiday Guide: Six Writing Pads that make Great Gifts

Whether you’re hoping to get a jump on your holiday shopping or just want to find a special gift for someone dear to you, nothing sends a message that you want the best for them like genuine quality.

 

In this first installment of our Holiday Gift Guide, we’ll focus on a great gift for the consummate professional: a quality leather writing pad cover.  While we all love digital devices, they still make you look like you’re sending a text message or posting on social media - so they’re not welcome in every environment. Writing pads remain central for those that do a lot of note-taking. Of course they remain the favorite of writers that find them indispensable for scribbling ideas, but they’re also core for those that are regularly in meetings and presentations, including office executives, attorneys, journalists, administrators, teachers, and even students.  

Everyone appreciates the value of having the ability to quickly jot down thoughts that need to be revisited and shared.  Quite simply, you can’t go wrong with a nice writing pad cover from Jack Georges.  They’re designed to fit a standard letter-size notepad and have a built in pocket with business card holder.  Plus, like everything else that bears the Jack Georges name, they’re made from superb quality leather and are built to last.

So now you just have to choose one…and the right option comes down to the recipient’s personality.
