This should be everything you need.
(+ Soldering Iron, Pen and Batteries)
Sorry that prices are in Euro.

What do you think?

I would only buy the IR-Led. The rest is best brought from your local electronics component shop (Radioshack in Denmark?).

The resistor is not for your application (soldering, this one is for a bracket), the switch looks a bit big (won't fit inside your pen).

You will want to actually see these and make sure the suit you application. Otherwise you will be making multiple online orders and nothing fits.

Perhaps a shout out to your Danish pals if they know local parts/suppliers???

Ahh ok, thank you very much for the information.
Luckily i havent ordered the parts already.
hmm i do not know if theres a big electronic shop like RadioShack here in Deutschland (alias Denmark ^^)
You know, we are a bit old fashioned around here ;)
But I have found one on the internet. Conrad in our former Capital City Bonn should do the job.
