It’s the most wonderful time of the year again!

If you are like most, you probably leave stocking stuffers as a last thought. If this is you fear not– we have 10 stocking stuffer ideas for the writer in your life!

1. Notebook

A nice thick, hardcover notebook is the perfect gift for those who like writing short stories, essays, or are needing to organize their next novel. You can find these in office supply stores or in the office section of a supermarket like Target. If you prefer online shopping you can try searching for “lined hardcover notebook” on Amazon. For a personalized touch, try searching “personalized notebooks” on Etsy!

2. Pocket Notebook

This is the perfect idea for writers on the go. You never know when inspiration might hit and having a pocket-size notebook is perfect to capture those thoughts. You should be able to find these in office supply stores and the office section of stores. Try Amazon if you prefer online shopping!

3. Gel Pens

A nice set of gel pens is a great idea for a stocking stuffer because these are the best pens for reducing hand stress. Gel pens are also ideal for precise writing and come in an array of colors. They typically transfer on paper smoothly and with thinner lines compared to rollerball pens.

5. Writing Prompts Card Deck

To help writers with writer’s block or simply to give some inspiration for creative writing, a writing prompt card deck or book is a great gift option. You should be able to find this with a quick search on Amazon.

6. Prayer Journal

You can find 2023 prayer journals in bookstores and the book section of stores. These not only keep you writing daily, but they will also keep you mindful and grateful in this new year.

7. Cube Timer Dice

A cube timer is perfect for time management! You roll this dice and whatever it lands on tells you how long you have to stay focused on your writing until your next break. It can be 15 min, 25 min, etc. You can find these by searching “cube timer” on Amazon.


Writers are typically readers, so bookmarks are a great stocking stuffer without a question.

9. Mug for Writers

If you go to your nearest bookstore or search “mug for writers” on Amazon you’ll find a lot of cute mugs with writing puns that are perfect to gift this season.

10. “Do Not Disturb” Door Hanger
