So instead, this off-the-top-of-my-head list of all-time best gifts, in no particular order (except for the first one).
- Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen (Bauhaus-inspired design + hooded nib = fanciest thing I own)
- Blank leather journal
- Honda 70 motorcycle
- A swell fedora I lost at Michigan State (but I think Bob Costas found it)
- Dymo Letra Tag 2000 label maker
- Battlestar Galactica Flight Training Academy flight jacket (I wear it frequently while writing)
Please let me know if you find an orange Shinola notebook labeled, “Recombobulation Area.”
