I’ve put together a collection of gifts for writers. Each image is an Amazon affiliate link, so if you do click through and buy, I will receive a small percentage. In any case, a heartfelt thank you to all of my readers and clients for your support. This past year brought many changes as I transitioned into full-time freelancing. Look for a leaner, meaner, and more informative Word Bank Writing & Editing in 2016!
Beverage Related Gifts for Writers
Wine and coffee function as the sweet nectar of life that keeps many a writer going. Nothing says I adore you more than hurling Shakespearean insults. Or if accessorizing wine glasses is your thing, go for the Bronte sister charms.
Literary Quote T-Shirts
I’m sure you could have a T-shirt with your favorite hashtag, but for your purposes, #writer says it best. I must add that it would be nice if more T-shirts feature quotes from women writers could be found! So pick the quote that best suits the writer in your life:
- “Find what you love and let it kill you.” –Charles Bukowski
- “Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.” –Kurt Vonnegut
- “So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” –F. Scott Fitzgerald
- “To thine own self be true.” –William Shakespeare
Jewelry for Writers
Bring on the bling! Earrings, necklaces, charm bracelets, oh my! Alas, if you’re like me and not one to wear jewelry, maybe you could consider getting or giving literary tattoo for the most permanent of gifts.
Games for Writing Inpiration
Rather than letting the frustration of writer’s block set in, games can transport a writer’s mind back to that sense of play necessary for writing engaging prose. I’ve spent many hours fiddling with magnetic poetry to jog my stuck brain.
Books: The Best Gifts for Writers!
Last but not least, books always make for great gifts. Featured below is a selection of books from my clients. If you’re going to be in need of some editing in the year ahead, please explore my editing services page. I am continually amazed by the great stories that come my way.
