That writer in your life is excited about the holidays. (I say this on good authority, as I am that writer in a few people’s lives.) But, what does your favorite word-slinger consider to be a great gift? Aside from the obvious six-figure publishing deal, settling on the perfect writer-befit present is no simple task — so, we're here to help illustrate a few bright ideas.
To start, consider your writer: picture not only their writerly habits but also their writerly dreams. Is this wordy familiar looking to finish a novel — or start one? Are they constantly scribbling away in tiny journals — or are they typing at a 9-to-5 digital job? Could their bookshelf use a little plumping? Their home-desk a little streamlining? To answer some of these musings, we went ahead and gathered up a mix of gifts ranging from practical to whimsical. Some are tools to help enable the day-to-day writing grind. Others are tokens meant to inspire creativity through prompts or incredible language. And at least one acknowledges the simple fact that a writer just needs a good neck massage.
In lieu of a publication deal, here’s what to gift that writer in your life this holiday season.
