Yule Giveaway | BeNu Friendly Chameleon Fountain Pen

Can you believe it? It’s December ALREADY! This year has flown by. I don’t know where it’s vanished to at all; possibly down the side of the sofa with all my pound coins!

We are at the last United Inkdom giveaway of 2018.  So, ladies and gentlemen (and all shades in between), the United Inkdom review team present to you… the BeNu Friendly Chameleon!

Let me tell you a little bit about this pen. She’s a VERY attractive Russian pen, part of the BeNu range (all hand-made and equally strikingly coloured) and retails for $90 (converter extra). Read what the United Inkdom reviewers said about it HERE.

What do you think? Isn’t it just the best-looking pen?

This lovely creature could be delivered to your door by Hogmanay! Just think, you can start your 2019 journalling with this classy fountain pen and it won’t cost you a bean!

Interested? To take part this month, you should be resident in the UK and sign up to receive updates for the United Inkdom blog by email (hit that red ‘ink me up’ button). And that’s it!

The giveaway closes on 22 December, with a winner drawn before 24 December. And providing we get the winner’s address details in good time, the BeNu Friendly Chameleon will be with you before 31 December.

And if you’re not the lucky winner, why not visit the BeNu site and check out their whole range – that Christmas present money isn’t going to spend itself!
