10 Best Gifts For Writers

The season of giving is upon us and the pressure is on to find thoughtful gifts! While I might not be able to help with ideas for your Dad (why are they so hard to buy for!), I can definitely help with suggestions for the writers in your life. Whether that’s someone who loves to journal, a poet, or a best-selling author, I’m here for you! And as a writer, don't forget to treat yourself! You deserve it!

Here are ten brilliant gift ideas for writers for 2023.

1. The Laptop Tray


I recently persuaded my mum to buy this and she loves it. Perfect for writers who like to work from their bed or sofa.

2. Heated Neck Massager

SNAILAX Neck Massager

I'm not exaggerating when I say I use mine all the time. It loosens tight muscles and the heated option makes it incredibly relaxing.

3. Waterproof Notepad


Ideas can pop up at anytime for writers, especially in the shower! Make it easy for them by gifting this waterproof notepad.

4. Coffee Machine


I have coffee machines all over my home but the most important is the one in my office. It will get any writer through that afternoon slump.

5. Cushion


I saw this on Instagram and immediately ordered one. It's the perfect accessory for any writer's office.

6. Online Writing Course


An ideal Christmas gift for the aspiring author. This self-paced course is great for teens looking to develop their writing skills or a new writer looking to get published.

7. Reusable Notebook


Handwritten notes you can access on a device? Yes, please! This reusable notebook can be used endlessly by simply wiping clean with a damp cloth.

8. Apple Airpods Pro


The absolute essential tool for writers looking to concentrate. Noise-cancelling and water-resistant, writers can use these to listen to inspiring podcasts or to block out disturbances.

9. Writing Prompt Cards


Illustrated cards to help overcome writer's block. Includes tips, ideas, and helpful suggestions. A great stocking filler.

10. A Book


A Memoir of the Craft: Stephen King On Writing

This continues to be my most referenced tool. Part memoir, part instructional, this is an essential book for any writer.
