Valentines Day is a day in which celebrate the ones we love by doing a little something extra. So how do Gold Toe, Pilot Pens and Tastykake have in common? 

Nothing says I you care more than a personal note, letter, or even a doodle from the heart. I know having the right pen makes all the difference when it comes to truly getting one's feelings out. I don't know about you but sometimes I hate when I get those cards which have everything already wrote, I really enjoy a one of a kind piece from the heart. Here are some really great pens from Pilot to get your true message across. 

PILOT PEN:
1. Put passion to paper — Nothing says I love you (or I really like you, let’s not get ahead of ourselves here) like a thoughtful handwritten message. Iconic and timeless, the love letter is the ultimate symbol of affection. Not only does every onscreen romance in the history of forever feature a dramatic reading of a love letter, but 88% of real life lovers hold onto these special notes long after receiving them. This Valentine’s Day, grab your favorite Pilot pen and let your heart take it from there!
