Do you want to buy a holiday present for your writer loved ones? Look no further! Here’s a list of some really cool gifts that the writers in your life will love (and that’s coming from a writer. Yes, I have all of these in my wishlist or already own).
Stephen King’s On Writing
Quite literally the best resource any aspiring author and writer could have. Even if you aren’t a fan of Stephen King himself, this book is packed with information about how he succeeded at his craft. There is no fluff in here. Every section has useful tips and advice from someone who has been there and done that. He admits the journey to becoming an author wasn’t easy, but it was simple for him, because writing had been his dream since he was little. He talks about his setbacks, rejections, failures, and perseverance.
A Writing Beret
More of a joke than a serious present, but sometimes silly gifts come across as the best, and who knows…Your writer might find a fashionable use for a beret! It’s always said that to spot an author all you need to do is walk into the nearest café and look for the person wearing a beret, typing madly at their keyboard.
Vintage Library Necklace

Writer’s Market 2019

A Candle For Writer’s Block
Who doesn’t love candles? Especially one that smells like regurgitated ideas and probably a vampire?
5 pc. Typewriter Coaster Set
What’s better than writing? Writing with a delicious beverage at your side. Just be sure you don’t get any water rings on the counter top. That is mahogany.
Self Editing For Fiction Writers
Editing is the bane of any writer. This book will offer tips and tricks on how to make the process easier, or at the very least, a little more tolerable.
Do Not Disturb Writer’s Door Knob Hanger Sign
Hell hath no fury like a writer interrupted in the middle of a very important scene. A door knob hanger is just what a busy writer needs for some privacy while they work on their craft, or, you know…stare at their blank word document waiting for the muse to strike.
Poets & Writers Magazine Subscription
Filled with lots of information about authors and the business of writing, Poets & Writers Magazine subcription will motivate your writer to become more involved with the community and get out there and sell their books!
The Business Of Being A Writer
Another business end gift, this book offers valuable information about the tricky bits that follow the really fun creative process.
If your writer is anything like me, then typing away at their keyboard for hours has given them a terrible case of carpal tunnel, or at the very least, a good old wrist cramp. I bought myself a wrist brace after experiencing some painful wrist stuff, and it helped a lot. I was able to power through the rest of my writing with only minimal pain!
