For artists, students and everyone in between, a pen opens up a world of creative possibilities. Picking up an Apple Pencil at the Apple Store can cost as much as $129, but there's no need to pay a lot for an active stylus for your iPad. Today only you can purchase the Zagg Pro Stylus 2 in gray or yellow to just $50, saving you $30 off the list price. This one-day deal expires tonight, December 14th at 9:59 pm PT (12:59 pm ET), so place your order before then if you don't want to miss out on the savings.

This dual-ended stylus is a great tool to use with Apple's lineup of tablets and is an affordable alternative to the Apple Pencil. It has a fine tip for drawing and writing, plus a round, capacitive end for swiping, and is compatible with all current iPads. It also charges wirelessly, with a battery life of up to six hours per charge – and automatically turns off after 15 minutes of inactivity to help save energy. Additionally, this pen features palm rejection and tilt recognition technologies that make it easier to use than older models. You can even attach it magnetically to the iPad Pro.

If you're looking for the perfect stocking stuffer, this might be the one, especially at this price.
