Christmas is approaching, and with it, a flurry of internet searches and flyer flipping to find loved ones some thoughtful gifts. But what of writers? What might be on their wish list? NEVER FEAR! Becca and I have scoured the interwebs for you, and compiled an ULTIMATE Gift List For Writers just for this occasion. Do check it out!
Below are some of our favorite finds from our pinterest board. Feel free to bookmark, add to your wish lists, or share with other writers!
Coffee Mug for Introverting…er, Reading:
I have seen some neat mugs for writers, but this one is just so perfect I had to put it up on the blog. A great gift for your favorite introvert!
(View more clever mug ideas on our pinterest board here)
Why do the best ideas come in the middle of the night, when we have nothing to write with, and getting up from the warmth of blankets is a Herculean task? Perhaps it is karma for all the bad things we do to our protagonists.
Well, in your face, karma! This LED pen will let you jot down your ideas before they slip away!
One year for Chrismas, Becca gave me a Christmas tree ornament with our Emotion Thesaurus book cover on it–what a thoughtful way to celebrate our first book!
Why not get a special trinket made out of your book cover, or that of another author friend, like this key chain or purse fob?
What are Joulies? Oh, just a remarkable bean invention that keeps your coffee HOT FOR HOURS. Let’s face it, writers would IV drip coffee if they could and but there’s nothing worse than getting caught up in the story and having one’s coffee or tea go cold. Sign me up for Joulies!
Toast your way to greatness! Gaze upon the face of a literary icon, then slather him with marmalade and consume his genius, bite by delicious bite. Be sure to say “Klaatu Verata Necto” a few times, and we’re pretty sure MAGIC will ensue.
(Besides, don’t pretend you don’t want this toaster, especially when it comes with many different designs including Clowns, Skulls and the Death Star!)
Will it let you see the future? Protect you from mind control? Sadly no. But it will help you recover from strained vision when you spend far too much time
playing candy crush, hanging out on Twitter, or writing your opus novel, which is pretty cool.

Contact Jay and find out how he can help you find your internet home, or to set up a gift certificate for a writer you know.
Writing Resource Books:
Specifically, ours! We hope you’ll forgive our shameless self promotion, but if you find value from our Writers Helping Writers site, we encourage you to check out our books as they are packed with SO MUCH MORE writerly advice and tools than is available here.
But please, spend your dollars wisely. Ask around and see what your writer friends think, if they have test driven our resources. Check out our reviews on Amazon.
