Michille: Gifts for Writers (and Readers)

Writers Charm BraceletWe’re heading into a big holiday season for many. Personally, I celebrate Christmas. Even if you don’t celebrate something in December, you likely have other times of year when you do, like birthdays, Mother’s Day, etc. I’ve gathered a few ideas for the writer or reader in your life that are a little different than, say, an Amazon gift card. Last year’s edition of this included Aqua Notes. I have since found Eureka Shower Idea Whiteboard. Amazon also has The Writer’s Toolbox: Creative Games and Exercises for Inspiring the ‘Write’ Side of Your Brain and I love this bracelet.

Storiarts has literary goods, handmade in Portland, Oregon – bonus points for American made products. An extra bonus for this Maryland girl is the nod to Edgar Allan Poe. The Raven Writing Gloves anyone?

Writers Unplugged’s The Ultimate List of Gifts for Writers has some fun stuff like a vintage library pendant necklace, a Born to Write necklace, a nighttime notepad, and my personal favorite: a t-shirt that says, “I’m silently correcting your grammar.”

Bookfox has a list of 50 Surprising and Unusual Gifts for Writers with some pretty funny stuff. How about a Once Upon a Time board game? Or candles that smell like books? And another personal fav: a block of wood that says “Writer’s Block.”

Happy writing and Happy Holidays.

  1. I just bought a writer friend a stained class window hanging that looks like a stack of books. It’s beautiful, and I think she’ll love it, but I’m always hesitant to give people wall art–it’s like I’m trying to choose their decor for them. So I will bookmark this post for when her birthday rolls around!

    • We have a problem with wall space. We have an open floor plan and lots of windows so there aren’t many places to hang stuff anyway. Last year, Rob got me a throw that says, “You’re dangerously close to being killed off in my book.” Also a good one.

  2. What a fun list! I really like the idea of a “toolbox” with random ideas stuck in it. You also remind me that I should probably update my Amazon gift list. Remove the books I’ve already got, and maybe add a few more that I’d like.

    I need to add that I really like the bracelet, and the idea behind it. I’ve been reading about how keeping your core values on a wrist brand can help keep you focused, and this is a very cute way to do it. (-: Plus, if your core values change, you can change the bracelet — much easier to live with than a tattoo!

    • I love the bracelet, but probably wouldn’t wear it. I wear a watch and a Tiffany bracelet on my left wrist and I don’t think I could deal with anymore than that. I would wear the t-shirt, though.
