Many writers live for their work. They have such a passion for what they do that when you need to get them a gift, you already know the direction to head in. If you are thinking about what to buy a writer in your life, here are some ideas to help you get started.
A gift certificate to an office supply store is a useful gift idea for writers. The amount of paper, ink, notebooks, pens, pencils and folders that one goes through in the writing profession can be immense. It is a present that could help to ease some of the cost of necessary expenses.
Another gift idea for writers is a magazine subscription to a magazine that is tailored to their profession. This present could offer some beneficial advice to the recipient. There are a few magazines to choose from and the price usually ranges around $30 US Dollars (USD) for a year subscription.
A hardcover, blank journal with a matching pen is another great gift idea for writers. It can be handy to carry around a small journal to write thoughts down in or do a little work when the mood strikes. Prices for this present will vary as some journals and pens can be very simple or could be quite elaborate.
A massage is a gift idea for writers that many would love to receive. Being hunched over a computer or a notebook for hours a day can put a strain on the shoulders and back. A local reputable spa should have various packages available in several price ranges that you can choose from.
If there is a local writing class that the potential recipient has been talking about, you may consider giving the gift of education. It is a gift idea for those writers who have been dropping hints about wanting to sharpen their skills. These classes usually cost about $100 USD or more but could end up being an invaluable present.
Noise canceling headphones are a wise gift for those that can’t concentrate with a racket going on around them. They are a good gift idea for writers who like to get out and do some work in café’s, parks, or other outdoor spots around town. Noise canceling headphones could help drown out noise and be more efficient in their work.
When giving presents to a writer, there is nothing like giving one that supports their passion. Before choosing the gift, it is best to make every effort to have it be thoughtful, useful, and be given with good intention. If you give something from your heart, then it will most likely be loved and appreciated.
