This is an oldie but a goodie.

Receptionists know how impossible it is to keep pens at their desks; their desks seem to be a free-for-all that the entire office to help themselves to whatever they want. And if someone asks to "borrow" a pen, it is likely never to come back.

So many of us do this:



It's just silk flowers, hot-glued to the top of Stik Pens, wrapped in floral tape, and stuck in a vase.

If someone asks to borrow a pen, hand them one of these. It's a cute surprise and it's highly unlikely they'll walk off with it. And even if they do walk off with it, it's easy to find it again.

I always enjoy these when I encounter them at an office or retail shop! It's such a cute and clever idea.

Excellent idea, no more guys just instinctively putting the pen in the shirt pockets!

I assumed it was something to do with the figurine when I first read your title and saw the thumbnail photo. Smiley
That is such a clever solution. I love the fact that the pens are in disguise and have two roles being a vase of flowers but also pens. I will definitely be wondering about vases of fake flowers in the future; I didnt know they existed until reading your post.
