15 Ingenious Gifts for Writers


Do you have friends or family that are writers, but you're not sure what to buy them on their birthdays or anniversary?

I'm going to list some really great gifts that will fulfil most writers wants and passions when it comes to writing, see list below:

1. The Classic Moleskin Notebook

For most writers its become something of a cliche, strangely enough when asked most writers would love to receive a Moleskin Classic Notebook.

A reliable sturdy notebook available in plenty of sizes and colours, helping your favourite writer look professional while out and about.

2. A Book About Writing


Writers love books, both reading and writing them.  Giving a writer a book about writing is a given.  See the five books below any writer would proudly display on their bookshelf:
3. A Night in a Hotel

Having a change of scenery can make a huge difference especially if you need to clear your head.  Surprise the writer in your life with a night in a hotel.

Try last minute deals with Expedia, Hotels.com and Kayak for booking or researching your options.

4. The Bluetooth Keyboard

For any writer on the go a keyboard like the Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard is a perfect accomplice for writing on a smartphone or tablet.

For the writer that likes to switch between devices its a great gift at under $40.

5. The Typewriter

Sounds so old fashioned in 2016, but many people envision a writer sitting at a desk using a typewriter to write books or articles on (thanks to Murder She Wrote).

The Brother is still one of the best selling typewriters around, or you could go for the more classic Royal Epoch Portable Manual Typewriter.

Both Typewriters are a snip at under $200 and might be the tool to defy your favourite writers distractions.

6. An Astute Coffee Mug

You can keep your number one writer stay amused and caffeinated with a clever coffee mug.

My favourites are:

Does your best-loved writer have a particular style? And love jewellery.

Why not gt them a necklace inspired by the works of Jane Austen or William Shakespeare.

8. The Noise Cancelling Earphones

Some writers thrive on a bit of background music while they write.

Why not give the writer in your life noise cancelling earphones like this option from Bose, helping to boost their productivity.

9. The Planner

The Tools4Wisdom Planner will help your writer get organised and stay inspired.

The Tools4Wisdom Planner has been created for emphasising the planning and daily schedule required for any writer with a busy life.

Focusing on yearly and monthly goals this planner is both an organisational tool and part life coach on paper.

10. The Writer's Toolbox

The Writer's Toolbox contains exercises, creative games to inspire the writers side of the brain.

Jamie Cat Callan created this product and receives endless reviews about how his kit has helped so many writers develop new plot ideas.

11. The Waterproof Notepad (Aqua Notes)

Many writers get their best ideas at the most inopportune times, like the shower.

This ingenious 40-sheet waterproof mountable pad, allows writers to jot these ideas down while their singing in the shower.

12. The Writer Emergency Pack

This deck of cards will help any writer with their writer's block woes.

13. The Writer's Block

Why not give your favourite writer an actual writer's block as a little distraction.

This clever block also serves as a puzzle that turns into a writing pad once you solve it.

14. The Edgar Allen Poe air freshener

You can freshen up your car with some "Poe Pourri".

The Edgar Allen Poe air freshener is perfect for any literary nerd.  (According to reviews, it smells pretty good to).

15. The High-Tech Pen

This LED pen is perfect for writing late at night in the dark.  Or why not try a Spy Pen that records audio and video.  This Livescribe Smartpen is a great little investment at $120, and will save notes and audio recordings directly to your computer.
