I'm here to help you start giving outside of the box. No more scented candles, bottles of wine or boring ties thrown into a gift bag. The Pink Pen is your go-to source for gift-giving ideas. What to give and how to give it - all tied up in one neat package right here.

If you're pressed for time, I also offer gift concierge services where I take care of all the details and you get all the thank you's. And as always, calligraphy and hand lettered signs continue The Pink Pen tradition.

  • Gift Guides & inspiration
  • Gift wrapping ideas & tips
  • Gift Concierge services
  • Calligraphy & Hand lettered signs
  • Workshops

Birthdays, Mother's Day and the holidays aren't going anywhere, so let's get started.

Ever grateful,

Monica

Heyyy! Took a little break to celebrate and reflect on accomplishing a big goal. It’s been 1 month since my 32-ish hour finish at Bryce Canyon. This was my second (and last) 100 mile trail run and I gotta say, it wasn’t any easier than the first. Since this is an Instagram post and not a race report, I won’t get into the crazy details but I will say you’re left with some funny feelings when you wrap up something big - happiness, emptiness, wonderment, relief, and of course a far off vision of what’s next. What IS next? 😉 As for gifting and lettering, let’s get back to sharing and caring! And of course, Happy Summer 🏖 . . . . . #biggoals #biggerdreams #bhags #trailrunning #giftguru #giftconcierge #areyoustillthere #giftguide #presentsandpresence #atxblogger #atxcalligrapher #weddingcalligrapher #buckleup

That’s me. Running. Always running. In approximately 1 week from right now I’ll be on hour 12 of a race I’ve been training for for months. I’m excited, nervous, joyous, and ready...lots of the same feelings as the amazing grads in your life. To make sure you’re prepared, I’ve just posted my GRADUATION GIFT GUIDE out on the blog. Let me know what you think!

Hey there. Are ya ready to gear up for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation season and end of year thank you’s for teachers? That’s a lot of buying, wrapping and giving. While you can certainly hire me to take care of things from start to finish, I’m also hoping to be a resource of great gift ideas for you. I’ve just uploaded Mom’s Day gift ideas to the blog and will keep adding to the list as I see other goodies pop up. Let’s do this!

Good luck to all @bostonmarathon participants out there today. One year ago today, I published my first Gift Guide on The Pink Pen blog to celebrate all runners. Today I’m sharing my favorite run sweatshirt from @sarahmariedesignstudio Tuck this idea away for a future gift or grab one for yourself. It’s true to size, super soft inside and not too bulky. In other news, I will be visiting the @studio512tv team again tomorrow and sharing Easter Basket goodies & ideas. Tune in Tuesday 7a-9a CT on @thecw Austin, then again Wednesday 11a-noon on @kxan_news . . . . . #bostonmarathon #bostonmarathon2019 #sarahmariedesignstudio #runnersofinstagram #mondaymotivation #everyrunisagift #giftguide #guidetogifting #giftconcierge #giftguru #giftlikeyameanit #atxblogger #atxlatinabloggers #thepinkpen
