So I finally got to visit Paris to see the famous gargoyles for myself! Pretty excited. I'm not the best photographer and most of the gargoyles are up really high but it was still awesome to see them. The Italians would call the ones in my photo "garguglia" which means a gargoyle with a grotesque shape but architecturally it means "protruding gutter". Cool eh?
Anyway I've been browsing for more gargoyle collectibles and came across these great home office gifts. They would be perfect for anyone who loves gargoyles or dragons like me!
I love this set of Gargoyles and Dragons Sculptural Pens by Design Toscano. They are 6.5 inches long and made from resin with a grey stone look. They are refillable with standard ball point pen refills and would make a great gift for dragon lovers, teenagers or teachers! Just be aware that they don't come with caps so it might be best not to put them in your top pocket.
This novelty Dragon Stapler made by Pacific Homeware and makes stapling so much more fun! It's made from resin and aluminium that has been hand polished to give realistic detail. It takes standard size staples and would look great in any home or work place office or on a teachers desk.
This Medieval Dragon Utility Holderis 4.5 inches tall and made from a high quality resin that looks like ancient stone. It wont take up much space and can hold a number of pens. Sit this on your desk with your dragon pens and stapler to complete the theme! Great for students or dragon lovers.
If you don't like the dragon pen holder then what about Westminster The Iron Desk Gargoyleinstead! It's made by Design Toscano in solid cast iron so it has a bit more weight than the medieval dragon above. It measures 3.5 x 3.5 inches and is perfect for people who love gargoyles and all things medieval.
I have a friend who has a similar box on her desk to hold bits and pieces like sticky notes, paper clips and other random stuff. This Dragon Celtic Jewelry Box by Summit could be used as a storage box for all sorts of small stationary and not just jewelry. It measures 5.2 x 3.8 x 3 inches and can hold a deck of cards too.
This elegant Double Dragon Leather Note Book by Azure Green would look amazing in any home office and I bet your teenage sons or daughters would love it too! The note book has a large number of blank pages to fill so you can use it as a journal, sketch book or just for everyday notes. It measures approximately 5 x 7 inches and the leather has been embossed by hand, showing two dragons facing each other in combat with their tails entwined.
If you don't like the design on this one check out similar notebooks made by Azure Green.
Last but not least a gift for coffee drinkers who also love gargoyles...... and who doesn't drink coffee while they're working late in their home office? The Gargoyles Customized Coffee Mugis printed on both sides. It's a large size and the manufacturer claims that it will not fade. If this one isn't your style check out some of the other designsthey have in both ceramic mugs and travel mugs.
That's it for now. Hopefully I have given you some inspiration to turn your home office into something of a medieval fantasy and it will certainly be a talking point for visitors!
