It’s that time of year again. Father’s Day. There are actually few occasions that stump me entirely, but Father’s Day is always challenging. I like to choose gifts from the heart. Something that is long-lasting. Something that can be used and also treasured. One year I bought my husband a barbecue for his birthday. Other years I have simply gone with clothing, or tickets to an event. But generally speaking Dad is the hardest guy to buy for – at least in my family anyways.
Dads don’t really need a lot, or want a lot even, but at the same time it’s important to show you care for Father’s Day. So where to start? Well, this year we already had a trip, and we might be saving for a couple of bigger ticket items, so I don’t think I’ll be running out any time soon to purchase a new car for Dad, or a new riding lawnmower. Plus my kids love to make their own sweet hand-made treasures. Parker Pens are a great heirloom kind of gift that hits all the right notes. And the write notes (sorry couldn’t resist the pun.)
Parker Pens sent me this lovely pen for review, and luckily I have one to give to you, my dear readers also. So, follow the instructions at end of this post to win one for a special man in your life. For 125 years now Parker Pens has built pens that redefine writing. The Parker Urban ( shown above) could be a great gift this year for the man who seems to have everything. The Parker redefines writing combining an ergonomic approach with artistic flare.
*An unconventional bullet shape
*modern look and premium quality.

With a full range of models including fountain pen, ballpoint, and roller ball, PARKER Urban provides durability and flamboyance in a single pen. Where image is everything and quality is key, the Urban is an outstanding gift for men leading a modern life.
The Parker Urban, along with many other models of Parker pens, is available at fine writing specialty stores throughout Canada and at Reids, Basics, Wallacks, Novexco, Boutique Du Stylo, Le Parchemin, and Duly Noted. Prices range from $32 to $100, depending on the model of choice.
