The mad rush has hit both physical stores and virtual ones alike. All in an effort to claim the fun goodies we hope to set under the tree for our friends and loved ones.
However, sometimes it can be challenging to find just the right gift for the writer in our lives. Especially if you’re a non-writer and hate to admit you’re clueless on a few things. It’s okay. We’ve all been there.
And your fellow Realmies have you covered.
Here are a few suggestions we feel would win you some bonus points with that beloved writer.
12 Gift Ideas for the Writer in Your Life
1) Aqua Notes
For those moments inspiration strikes in the most inopportune situation. Help the writer in your life capture the answer to a plot hole crises before it escapes forever with a waterproof notepad.
2) Christian Writer’s Guide by Steve Laube
Steve Laube is the man when it comes to Christian publishing. And having his latest release of the Christian Writer’s Guide will give the writer in your life a lift up in 2019.
3) A custom Litograph product
Whether to customize with works your beloved writer has created, or get a product with their favorite book on it, Litograph has several options you’re sure to find will please most writers.
4) Go Scribbler Box Subscription
Scribbler Boxes are the it subscription boxes for writers of all kinds. With fun writing prompts, bookish goodies, and inspiration to keep plowing ahead on their WIPs, a box subscription would be a hit.
5) Realm Makers Gift Card
Um, hello. What story lover wouldn’t want more books for Christmas this year? That is a given. But sometimes it’s hard to know which books to buy. Especially if your beloved writer is a mood reader and flips to new stories on a whim.
Then let a Realm Makers gift card be your best friend this year. Slide a Realm Makers gift card into their stocking and let them do the book choosing.
6) Audible Subscription
And in case your writer friend is more into audiobooks these days (because they are a multitasking fiend) an Audible subscription would be a great gift.
7) Fingerless gloves
Tis the season for cold, stiff finger joints. Most writers will tell you that typing with cold hands isn’t a good mix. So feel free to help your writer friend out by gifting them with warm hands this season.
8) and 9) Writing In Motion
Yes, it is true, most writers spend hours at their keyboards typing away with little to no movement—for hours! While some try to stretch their legs or set reminders to get up and move, sometimes inspiration strikes and they must remain glued to the keyboard or risk losing those oh-so-precious plot twists.
We have a couple of suggestions that could come in handy for your writer friend to keep those fingers typing but still get movement in.
In-Motion Elliptical Trainer (use sitting or standing)
10) Travelers Notebooks
Building storyboards are great sources for constant inspiration to a writer. But getting on Pinterest isn’t always the best use of time (because it will suck the hours out of the day! Trust us, we’ve lost precious writing time down that lovely visual rabbit hole).
Travelers notebooks can be a fun way for them to capture interesting tidbits for their storyboards.
11) Noise-cancelling headphones
The world is loud. Life is exhausting. And sometimes your beloved writer just needs to escape into their own world and have a chat with whichever character they plan to kill off next. Noise-cancelling headphones would help aid them in quieting the distractions.
12) Zero-gravity pen
Because space pens are cool. And a pen that can write at all angles is a must for a writer’s tool kit. Plus, they can imagine they’re writing in zero gravity. 😉
