Gift Ideas for Writers (Christmas Edition)

Are you trying to find the perfect gift for the writer in your life? Want to give something a little more creative than a pen or notebook?

Look no further!

This post offers a range of uncommon present ideas which writers will find particularly useful. And if you are a writer yourself and see anything that you like the look of, then add it to your Christmas wish list!

Bookends

What writer does not need bookends?

If your friend or family member’s home is overflowing with books, stylish and unique bookends would make a great gift. They are pretty cool to look at, supports books in an upright position and keeps them in pristine condition. This is an underrated present that the recipient will appreciate.

There is a vast selection of bookends online, such as the classic “AZ” to elegant black marble to dangerous Katana swords to creative Star Wars themes where Yoda uses the force to keep the books from falling.

Custom Book Keychain

Is there a book series that they continuously rave about or have found inspiring? Then this personalised gift for bookworms should be a hit!

Put the front cover of their favourite novel onto a handmade keychain. Available from a 5-star shop on Etsy, the keychain’s total length is 3 inches long with the pendant being 1 inch, and you can choose between three different primary colours: black, blue, and brown. The two latter colours have an additional charge.

To add the personalisation, simply enter the name and URL of the book you would like to have customised.

Guaranteed, you will be giving your loved one a thoughtful and memorable Christmas present.

Masterclass Writing Course

Show your encouragement of their writing by helping them perfect their craft.

Masterclass offers special courses which are taught by the best writers in the world. Each writer has their own unique focus, and you can either purchase a single class, a year-long subscription (for only twice as much as a single course!), or a two-year-long subscription.

Some of the writers listed on the platform include:

  • Dan Brown teaching how to write thrillers.
  • Shonda Rhimes teaching how to write screenplays for television and film.
  • James Patterson teaching writing.
  • Margaret Atwood teaching creative writing.

Blue Light Glasses

Are you or anyone else you know forever staring at a computer screen?

Writers can usually be found staring at a screen typing their next prose or doing some much-needed research. However, many hours of uninterrupted screen time eventually causes eye strain and headaches which can be defeating, especially if a deadline is coming up.

These glasses would greatly benefit a person who knowingly spends most of their days concentrating in front of a monitor as it protects eyes from digital blue light and provides greater and long-lasting comfort. Bear in mind that this isn’t restricted to computers as tablets and phones also have the same effect.

Professional Feedback

Is there a finished manuscript or beautiful piece of work which is sitting on their computer gathering dust?

There’s nothing more nerve-wracking than approaching someone for feedback, let alone an experienced professional. Give them that extra boost of confidence by showing your support and paying for or offering a gift voucher from a manuscript assessment or editorial advice company.

They will receive honest, in-depth and constructive criticism on their writing upon the expert feedback. This will be appreciated by a writer who wants to improve their talent and reach new writing capabilities.

There are a number of websites available to apply for assessments and the charge will depend on the type of work that is being submitted.

There you have it – five different gift ideas which will have the writer in your life buzzing with excitement. If any has piqued your interest, feel free to leave a comment below!
