I have a big family, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed when trying to think of gift ideas for everyone. When I’m strapped for ideas, I usually just go to Pinterest and type in “gift ideas for…” and put in some descriptor that’s relevant for that person.
Perhaps that’s how you stumbled on this post…
If you have a loved one who is a writer (or if you’re a writer yourself and are looking for fun things to put on your own wish list), then look no further. This list has a variety of gift ideas in a wide range of price points.

If you’ve heard about bullet journaling, then you’ve probably heard people rave about these notebooks. They are perfect for diaries and making notes. And they look cute, too!
I own this set, and while I LOVE them, I will warn you that they do tend to bleed through to the other side of the page I’m writing on. Personally, I don’t care. But you’ve been warned. 🙂
If you’re a writer and you haven’t been listening to Joanna Penn (The Creative Penn Podcast), stop what you’re doing and go subscribe. She is a wealth of information about the publishing industry.
Anyway… Now that that’s out of the way, this book is all about how writers can take care of themselves so that they can sustain lasting careers.
On that same note, one thing writers are really bad about is sitting all day long. If you have a loved one who is in front of a screen all day, consider investing in a standing desk for them. Their back will thank you.
Another issue writers struggle with is hand and eye strain. This dictation software allows you to transcribe voice recordings into text. It takes a little while to train your brain how to write through speaking rather than typing, but it can be a big time saver as well as give your hands a break.
If you’re the type of person who goes all out for gifts, consider gifting the writer in your life with a brand new computer. I use the Dell Inspiron and am quite happy with it.
This is a must-read for any writer. If you’re shopping for someone who is just getting into pursuing their passion for the written word, grab this book for them. You can’t go wrong with this one.
And finally, how can you resist bandages with Shakespearean insults on them?
