BIC Gel-ocity Quick Dry Gel Pens are a back-to-school staple

Though it feels like everything is digitized these days, there are a few things that are just better the traditional way — turning the pages of a physical book, looking through a box of printed photos, or writing and doodling on paper, by hand!

In regards to the latter, there's certainly something about taking a pen in hand that feels more conducive to creativity than typing or doodling away on a laptop or tablet. And yes, there are still those among us who much prefer it, especially for taking notes and absorbing information.
