Kill that aspiring desire. Burn that achievement yearn. Do away with the motivation of today to make way for the laying about and doing nothing vibes of tomorrow with De-Motivational Pencils - the implements to keep you impotent.

These pencils are printed with phrases of plucky pessimism - if there is such a thing - to remind you that things are hard and things will probably fail and things really, mostly, aren't worth the effort, so you probably shouldn't try. The phrases include:

  • Do your best. Or don't. Whatever
  • Be prepared. Always have an excuse
  • Teamwork means sharing the blame
  • False hope is better than no hope
  • Think positive! Not everyone hates you
  • Mistakes are stepping stones to failure

This pencil set is smartly gift boxed, so if you know someone who needs a little de-motivation you know what to buy them to take the lead out of their pencil.


  • Too motivated? These pencils will help
  • Keep that enthusiasm level way, way down
  • Chew on them as you contemplate the futility of existence


  • Dimensions: 19.5 x 6 x 1.5 cms
  • Material: Wood
