CLOSED ~ HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS: Staples OXO Review and Giveaway - 3 Winners

I know this will sound weird but I love office supplies. Yes, I love them. Any type, any kind. There is something about having new pens or a cool stapler and don't get me started on Post-It notes.

So when Staples contacted me to review some OXO Good Grip office products I was very excited. Staples and OXO have teamed up and now have a great line of Good Grip office products for sale at Staples. I have used OXO products before but in the kitchen. I have quite a few OXO Good Grip kitchen gadgets and love them. They work well and last long.

OXO's design philosophy is to create each product to be convenient and easy for everyone to use. As they say: It's where advanced function meets comfortable usage. And they succeed. OXO products are comfortable and functional. Plus they are so cute!!

I received a few of the new OXO Good Grips retractable ballpoint pens in blue and black ink and some large magnetic clips to try out. After writing a few checks and Christmas cards, I realized that these pens are really nice. I like that you just twist and they are ready to use and then twist again and they retract. This is especially good since I am known to leave pens all over the house and sometimes they leak and it's a mess. The non-slip grip makes them easy to use and to hold. The ballpoint makes writing smooth and easy. Plus, the pens are refillable.

I love magnetic clips as well. I am forever and a day losing papers and coupons and I keep a lot of clips on my refrigerator to hold coupons and important mail. These were great too. They are easy to use and they stick really well. They were strong enough to hold a bunch of coupons I had. I also was able to use them as a bag clip for my chips!

The OXO Collection at Staples includes tons of cool office supplies and I am definitely eyeballing a few I looked at. I love the pushpin dispenser and I also really like the retractable highlighters. Now you are probably saying why does she say this is a good holiday gift idea. Well, if you know someone like me who goes gaga over office supplies what better gift can there be but a basketful of these cool supplies, right? Not only is it a fun gift but totally functional!!

Staples has a gift for three of my cool readers!! They are offering me some supplies to give to you. WOO!! Three of you will win a set of the Good Grip retractable pens, a pushpin dispenser (so jealous because this is the cutest thing) and a one hole punch! YAY! Thank you Staples!

So read the entry rules and enter! Start your New Year with some cool office supplies!!
