Holiday Gifts For Writers
Yep it’s that time of year again. Time to buy the writer, author, or storyteller in your life the perfect gift. If you’re a writer yourself (or perhaps a writing coach or tutor) you may want to buy gifts for your clients, students or readers, or maybe run a giveaway via your blog or Facebook page for your followers. Involved in a writing or critique group? You just found (several) possible secret Santa gifts.
However you’re planning on distributing the writing goodies this holiday season, there are a few ideas here, for any budget.

The Writer’s Toolbox
Packed full of creative games and exercises to keep writer’s block at bay and let the ideas flow.
Writer’s charm bracelet
Cute, charming, and hypo allergenic, the perfect bracelet for the indie author in your life.
Writer’s block coasters
Fun, affordable novelty coasters, because as we all know, writer’s block does have a tendency to drive us to drink.
Eat. Sleep. Write. Repeat.
This mug is perfect for the dedicated writer. The mantra is also available on shirts, travel mugs, phone cases and more (so there really is something for every budget) at Cafepress.
This home office lap desk fits a laptop of up to 17 Inches, completely with cushion wrist rest, mouse pad, and tablet/book/phone holder. Write from your sofa, bed, or anywhere else.
Character development journal
Excellent journal for fiction writers to create, and keep track of, their characters.
I’m A Writer pajamas
“I’m a writer. When the voices in my head go quiet, that’s a bad thing.”
The perfect pajamas for writers everywhere. And again, you can get this sentiment on mugs, note books, and other merchandise over on Cafepress.
Cute, practical, storyteller mug, featuring a typewriter growing flowers.
Earrings for authors
The perfect novelty earrings for authors. Featuring vintage typewriters, and seeing your author friend or family member from chapter one, through to the end.
Just one more piece of jewellery. Super affordable ‘Snoopy with his typewriter’ necklace for writers who also happen to be Snoopy fans.
I Write Horror Throw Pillow
One for the horror writers. And once again this is a Cafepress special. So it’s also available on mugs, bags, shirts, and other items. Surprise your horror writer (or aspiring horror writer).
There are a LOT of books for writers, depending on the type of writer you’re buying for, and where they are in their career. Check out my reading list, or the books for writers section of my Amazon store.
So you’re not going to buy this for just anyone on your list, but a couple of years ago my husband asked a friend what the ultimate present for a writer was and she kindly suggested a MacBook Air. I haven’t missed my clunky old PC for a moment, and having something this light and portable (and able to grab onto weak wifi signals), means I now write (and research) wherever I am.
Don’t forget you can find more gifts for writers, authors, bloggers, and online biz owners at my Amazon store. It’s where I curate lists of all the stuff I love, but it’s powered by Amazon, and you can shop there using your regular Amazon account, Prime benefits, etc.
