It’s that time again. The time where you find yourself madly scrambling trying to figure out what in the world to get your favorite writer for Christmas. Have no fear! I’m here to help—whatever your budget, these are gifts that any writer would love to receive.
It’s the gift that keeps on giving all year around! And there’s a few to choose from: Writer’s Digest, The Writer’s Magazine, Poets and Writers, or Publisher’s Weekly .
Craft books are some of my most treasured books. My favorites include: Stephen King’s On Writing , Plot and Structure by James Scott Bell, and Donald Maass’ Writing the Breakout Novel.
Not sure if they have a certain one? Give them an Amazon gift card (or a gift card to your local bookstore. I promise you can’t go wrong!)
I write books. What’s your superpower? (yeah, that’s a t-shirt . . . you can get it here:)
Writers are superheroes (really, just think about it) You can get some fun literary action figures on Amazon including: William Shakespeare, Edger Allen Poe, and Jane Austen .
Coffee (or coffee swag)
You could get a couple from a local roaster or have a roaster ship. There are also coffee subscriptions (another gift that lasts more than one time).
You could also go with a fun mug or coffee-inspired art.
This coffee poster from Pop Chart Labs is one of my favorites
This mug is fun, and shows that you believe in your writer
Fun accessories and etcetera
Fun tools. If we’re going to slave away on a novel, might as well make it fun right? I’d love to have one of these typewriter keyboards.
Bookends. Writer’s love books. Bookends are the perfect gift to keep their most treasured tombs together. My favorites are: this beautiful agate pair from West Elm, these... because owls, and these awesome pineapple ones from Anthropologie.
Story Cubes. Because sometimes writer’s need help brainstorming.
Writing maps. Speaking of brainstorming. These Writing Maps are amazing.
Kindle unlimited subscription. When all else fails. Give the gift of books. If your writer doesn’t have a Kindle, you can gift them one for as low as $30.
On a tight budget this year? That’s ok! I have you covered. Hop over to my blog to see how you can love on your writer without spending a dime (or very few dimes).
