GIVEAWAY: OXO - STAPLES




If you read my review of OXO office supplies a few months ago, you'll remember that I'm a confirmed office supply junkie. Hand me a new pen and I'm in bliss. A trip to any retail store always involves a quick jaunt down the office supply aisle. So when I got a package a few weeks ago containing an OXO tape dispenser, scissors and two packages of OXO retractable ballpoint pens it was like an early Christmas present just for me!

Each time I'm amazed at the ingenuity of those folks at OXO. The OXO think-tank is working overtime and they're quite a clever bunch, I must say. When they decided to delve into office supplies, they did it right the first time. Someone must have sat down and said "How can we do this better?" and then, they did.

I have a tape dispenser, well actually it doesn't work anymore because it used to have a drop in spool holder for the tape that one of the kids lost. I put the base away hoping that someday the little black spool would reappear and I'd be able to set it on the desk again. Not anymore, because I am now the proud owner of an OXO tape dispenser and there's no little spool to get lost now. Bet someone at OXO has kids like mine.



The spool is built right into the side to hold the roll of tape and the side of the dispenser flips open: it reminds me of a DeLorean car the way it flips open to load a fresh roll of tape.



I love my OXO scissors. There's a tiny button on the handle that you can push so the blades of the scissors cross and lock together so they can be safely used as a box cutter. No more grabbing a butter knife or fanning your scissors like a Ninja blade to open a UPS box.

OXO is also designing a line of markers, highlighters and pens. I had a chance to sample their new retractable ballpoint pens and I'm smitten. Ever put a pen in your pocket and discover later that the ink has now stained your shirt? I frequently use pens at work and I have a breast-pocket that I keep a pen clipped to and it's happened to me before. Not with OXO pens. These pens twist to expose the writing tip. When the tip is exposed the clip for the pen retracts; you can't clip the pen to a shirt if the tip is exposed, you have to twist it back in order to clip the pen to a shirt. Pure genius! These pens are also refillable and have a nice, comfortable grip.

OXO office supplies are exclusively located at Staples. I happened to see an entire display of them the last time I was there and ended up picking up one of their cute pocket staplers for my husband to use at work. But one of you isn't going to have to make a trip to experience OXO office supplies from Staples because we're having a giveaway! One winner is going to get a package of pens, markers, a tape dispenser and scissors all courtesy of Staples and OXO. Next time you're wrapping a present or opening a package, I'm sure you're going to see for yourself that someone was thinking outside the box when they designed these office supplies. OXO designs their supplies with real people in mind and the real needs we face everyday.
