Buying a gift for your favorite writer doesn't have to be a difficult task. In fact, writers are pretty easy to please.
While most writers use a standard keyboard now to pound out words, most appreciate a lovely pen as a gift. It's practical, but beautiful as well. Plus, let's face it, there is never a pen around when you come up with the perfect solution to a murder mystery.
The idea of 'fruit of the month' club as a gift has been around for a long time and is even the butt of many television sitcom jokes. Today's subscription boxes, however, take this concept to a whole new level. Lucky gift recipients can receive a monthly package of their favorite things, like a monogrammed stationary subscription box from a company like Busy Bee Gift & Stationery for your favorite writer.
No matter what genre your writer friend dabbles in, they need a notebook. Yes, another notebook! Writers and other creatives have a tendency to fill notebooks with story ideas, plot twists, and even names they like. There can never be enough notebooks.
4. Literary Gifts
From t-shirts to tote bags, literary gifts are everywhere. They can feature the cover of a favorite novel, infamous quotes, or even library circulation cards — all things admired and appreciated by other writers.
5. Amazon Gift Card
Writers read. It can be tough to know whether a person prefers a print, digital, or audible version of a book, which is why an Amazon gift cards is always a great gift.
Whether the writer in your life drinks tea or coffee, they will enjoy any caffeinated gift. Staying up late to meet deadlines can wear a person out, but the right caffeinated beverage can make everything better.
Chances are your writer friend is a grammar snob, but every good writer appreciates a resource guide to look up what he or she may not know. Style guides, writing resource books, and even dictionaries all make great books. Check out your local bookstore and see what they have to offer.
Writers need snacks. It's a proven fact. You can make up a basket of healthy treats on your own or sign up for one of those handy, dandy subscription boxes and have special treats delivered right to their door every single month.
9. Time Management Tools
Some writers have been known to procrastinate. Time management tools, from calendars to a Pomodoro timer, can help keep procrastinators on track to crank out more words per day.
That's it. Food, book stuff, food, writing stuff, and more food.
