The holiday season is all about taking something you know and love about your friends and family and turning it into a wonderful gift that they will treasure—and you simply can’t give the writer in your life their millionth notebook! From the inspirational to the utilitarian, I have gathered together some fun, unique gift ideas that any reader or writer will love (or would make a perfect gift to yourself this year!).
1. Novel Teas
Do you know a tea-loving writer? Each of these English Breakfast teabags is tagged with a literary quote. All twenty-five have quotes from a variety of authors from all over the world, so every cup holds new inspiration.
2. “Just One More Chapter” Mug
Everyone knows writers love their hot drinks, so why not give them something fun to sip out of while they tackle their next project? This mug lets everyone know just where their priorities are.
3. Frostbeard Candle
This charming Etsy shop offers all kinds of candles that will fill a writer’s home with comforting scents. With names like Old Books, Bookstore, Book Cellar, and Reading at the Café, writing inspiration will just be a match strike away. They even offer sample packs with names like Bibliophile and Book Nerd that include literary scents like Gatsby’s Mansion and Through the Wardrobe.
4. Literary Poster
What could be better than framing their love for books? The Bookerie on Etsy has lots of literary and book-lover quotes in their shop, ready to offer inspiration from their place on a wall or shelf.
5. Wooden Desk Organizer
Most writers seem to spend their lives at their computers, so giving them a beautiful way to keep their space neat and tidy will be much appreciated! These wooden desk organizers from iWoodDesign USA on Etsy will actually make them want to sit down and write (really, what more could a writer want?).
