Retro holiday gift suggestion

The Parker T-Ball Jotter, 1957
Newspapers, magazines and websites are full of holiday gift suggestions. But frankly, in this economy, I can't in good conscience recommend spending lots of money. (True, I may post pricey items from EBay, but I never recommend them as gifts; they're just historic curios.)

Here's an economical present that's totally retro: the Parker T-Ball Jotter, available in most office supply stores for a few dollars.

The Parker (yes, in black) is the ballpoint pen of choice at the Daily Mirror. My only concession to modern times is the gel cartridge. Great for doing the New York Times' crossword puzzles.
