Ah, Montblanc. Excuse me, but this is not a pen. It’s a writing instrument. The fine craftsmanship of a Montblanc will set him apart from all the other chumps out there who are still signing checks the uncivilized way. You can opt for the Meisterstück LeGrand in black resin above, $450, with gold-plated details–it’s a Montblanc classic. Free engraving makes it extra special. Or splurge on a limited edition, like the diamond- and sapphire-encrusted Boheme Papillon, below, valued at 180,000 Euros! Either way, Dad is sure to leave his mark with the utmost elegance.
