It’s officially the 2019 holiday season and, let me guess, you are probably racking your brain to figure out the perfect gift for writers in your life.
Sure, there’s the conventional Moleskine notebook or items of jewelry that feature various typewriters or really fancy bookmarks. But, come on, you want to buy them something that will be not only helpful, but fun too.
Imagine, it might even give them just the push they need to get that novel finished—turning you into a fairy godmother of sorts. Or it might allow them the space to turn off their writer’s brain and actually relax for five minutes.
But what do you buy for a writer, if you aren’t a writer yourself?
Have no fear; help is near. I’m here to dish out some of our favorite writer gifts for this year.
And hey, if you are a writer who always gets the same old writing gifts, and you’d love something new … well, pass this article along to the gift givers in your life!
And there you have it.
Plenty of ideas that aren’t the same old gifts to get the writer in your life, to let them know you support them and their work this holiday season.
It might seem silly, but showing a writer that you believe in their writing, whether through a quirky book of tattoos or a gorgeous hand-crafted wood fountain pen, will make a world of difference to them.
Writers are questioning themselves and their talent on a daily basis. To know someone out there is in their corner … that will be the greatest gift of all.
