Is a USB Drive Shaped as a Pen a Great Office Gift?

If you are looking for a great idea for a gift to give a co-worker or even your boss, you could do a lot worse than a USB drive shaped as a pen. USB drives are a great way to save and transfer files, and giving a personalized USB drive is both fun and practical and you have plenty of style options available to you.

USB Drive Pens

USB drive pens are functional pens that can be worn in a pocket or kept at your desk and contain a USB drive within. These pens are almost like something straight out of an old spy movie, making them very cool items even before you start looking at personalization. Depending on how much you want to spend, you can find a personalized pen drive in pretty much any color but as with anything else, the better the pen drive, the more you are going to wind up spending.


If you have ever gone shopping for a Waterman pen, you know just how expensive a pen can get. When you spend that type of money on a pen, you aren’t paying for the ink. Instead, you are paying for the image that comes along with the pen. The same is true with USB drive pens. While you can get them fairly inexpensively, less than $20 in many cases, if you have extravagant tastes and the resources to satisfy those tastes, you have options that can range into the hundreds of dollars. While the USB drive portion of these pens is likely comparable to the inexpensive brands, it is the outer casing that will run the price up. Often featuring precious metals, the more expensive drives can really make a powerful impression even when just using them to sign a document.

If you are looking for a great gift for the boss or a coworker that the whole office can be a part of, starting a collection for a USB drive pen, may be exactly what you are looking for. So, start passing around that hat and get the best USB drive that you can!
