The Best Gifts for Writers

You don't have to wait until Christmas to give your favourite writer a present *cough* me *cough* but since this is the season of giving, here are a few perfect items for the writer in your life.

#1. A waterproof notepad and pencil for when ideas strike them in the shower. And yes, it happens.

#2. A house plant for their writing nook to recycle all the carbon dioxide they emit when they huff and sigh over a plot snag. Studies show clear air is good for the head.

#3. A magic eight ball pen to help with all those tough decisions. Kill the hero? Should they kiss this chapter? Will the villain get caught?

#4. Fingerless gloves for the late cold evenings when everyone else has gone to bed. This pair was made for me by my writer buddy, Jane Lebak. If you follow her on twitter she might make you a pair too.

#5. A basket of snacks to keep by the writing nook.

#6. Buy one of their books then write a glowing review on Goodreads. Make sure you use big words and sound official.

#7. A typewriter t-shirt! You can get yours from @PoisonPearHFX.

       Buy her awesome stuff on-line here.

#8. A mug with an inspirational message. "Don't give up on us! Love, your characters"

 You can get one from David's teas. Check it out here.


Encouragement. All it takes sometimes is the simplest, 'you can do this' to make a difference in a writer's day.

Happy Gifting!

The waterproof notes are such a great alternative to leaving the laptop open on the closed toilet seat ;) But my heart is now set on those fingerless gloves. Gorgeous!
Have a blessed holiday season!

Thank you, Bethany! I love making fingerless gloves for writers. I always imagine warm characters just flowing from their keyboards now that the writers are wool-clad. :-)
