11 Gifts That are Perfect for the Writer in Your Life

With the holidays just around the corner, it's time to start scrambling for those last minute presents and stocking stuffers. Do you have a writer in your life? I know we can be pretty picky but give us a little credit, we sit and literally pick apart our writing line by line to make sure it's perfect! If you have no idea what stocking stuffers/small gifts to get for the writer in your life, don't worry! Here are some great gift ideas for your special "write"-brained someone.

642 Tiny Things to Write About Journal

Want to help give your writer a little inspiration? 642 Tiny Things to Write About is a journal filled with little prompts to get your writer in the writing mindset, and hopefully gives them a little inspiration too.

Ready, Set, Novel

If your writer is moving away from prompts and heading into writing novels,

Ready, Set, Novel

is the perfect gift for them. This book is designed to help writers through the plotting and outlining stages of novel-writing in order to give them the best foundation possible even before they start their first chapter!

Prologue Tea Co.

This is a perfect gift idea for the writer/book enthusiast/tea lover in your life. Prologue Tea is loose leaf tea with a line inspired by various authors and books. If your writer also has a penchant for this tasty beverage, then this just may end up being their perfect cup of tea.

Storyteller Pencils & more

The Literary Gift Co. is a company that sells cute literary pens and pencils. Their pencils have famous first lines imprinted on one side, including "It was a dark and stormy night..." "Once upon a time," and others. If this isn't the exact fit you're looking for but you like the idea, you can Google search 'literary pencils' and find pencils that have quotes from some of your writers' favorite books, including Alice in Wonderland and Harry Potter!


As a writer, I come up with some of my best ideas when I'm in the shower. Unfortunately, I'm also pretty forgetful, so some of those ideas go down the drain by the time I get a chance to write them down. Sound like someone you know? Well, now there's a solution! AquaNotes is a waterproof notepad that helps your writer preserve their ideas before they're forgotten. You can find them on Amazon

for a really good price!


Not into tea, but definitely into candles? PaddyWax is an artisan home fragrance maker that basically does the same thing as Prologue Tea Co. but with candles! They have a Library Collection filled with candles inspired by your writers' favorite classic authors from Edgar Allen Poe to Jane Austen to John Steinbeck.

Wreck This Journal

Kerry Smith is the creator of these fun, interactive diaries that allow your writer (or anyone really) to get out their frustrations in a very unique way. There are various editions of these journals so once you finish one, you don't just finish them all. You can find them at tons of book stores including Barnes & Noble and on Amazon.

Typewriter Keychain

Etsy is a place for designers to showcase their products and sell them. There are several designers that make


key chains for a good price and they're the perfect things to spruce up your writers' key chains.

Spage-Age Pen

Other than showering, another popular burst-of-inspiration activity is sleeping. The Fisher Space Pen Bullet

writes in any angle (including upside down), and makes a perfect accessory for a writer's bed-side table. It’s a helpful tool to have handy if trying to write while lying down. While the original model doesn't initially come with a pen clip, you can purchase a slip-on clip with the pen, and, to make this gift even more special, you can get them engraved!

Writer's Block Cure

Hours spent in front of a blank page, dozens of pieces of crumpled up paper on the floor. If only there was a cure for writer's block! But there is! This


Emergency Pack

has everything a writer needs for story resuscitation and rejuvenation!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally.
