Necessary Tips about Gifts for Writers
I think a good writer needs experience and expressiveness, and you might give them what they need by various items they use daily, or a subscription to a service they will enjoy.
In terms of writing, the most popular choices would be:
– Grammarly Premium: I have been using it ever since I start posting on the internet, and it has got my heart since the first day. Even with the free version, you will have your grammatical errors corrected, but the premium subscription is simply divine. Tone suggestions, structure check, plagiarism checker – they polish your writing the way it should be.
– ProWritingAid: Self-editing writers would love to have this assistant for grammar, style, and manuscript evaluation.
– Scapple: Compared to the first two programs, it is significantly less expensive, although it doesn’t lack much at all! Some people only vibe well with visual instructions, gifts for writers rarely offers that luxury, yet this one does!
If you are close to the writer (best friends or family), consider finding professional courses for them or taking them on a short trip. It will give them the experience and the relief they might not know they need.
Gifts for Aspiring Writers
The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression
Building the characters and expressing their emotions is the key to a successful novel, and it’s the uniqueness of the description that makes the story stand out. However, instead of giving us a list of words, you will probably forget after a few days, the book provides cues and suggestions in body language, inspiring us to individualize a character’s reaction.
Plot & Structure: Technique & Exercises
Another essential aspect of a story is the plot – how you start and finish the problem you have created. New writers might still be confused about the importance of a good plot, or how to know if their plot has gone off course. Writing is an art and a science, thus the author James Scott Bell has given us a very detailed instruction to structure the story and correct possible problems.
Wireless Bluetooth Headphone
What is the biggest distraction for you? It must be noises for most writers, and we can only imagine how they crave tranquility when they are at work. They might not have any song on replay, sometimes the soft sound of rain is more than enough for a spark of creativity. This manufacturer has several other affordable products for you to choose from!
On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
The million-copy bestseller Stephen King didn’t hesitate to share his experience, habit, and conviction with the curious fans. Whether you are a fan of his work or not, you will still manage to grasp some valuable knowledge via the memories and struggles King has been through. One simply shouldn’t miss out on the chance to see the friendly and inspiring side of an author who is mostly famous for his thriller books.
Home Decor Gifts for Writers
Hemingway Typewriter Pencil Cup
Inspired by the classic typewriter and installed in the minimalistic pencil cup, this stationery dock becomes quite an object of adoration. It’s important to have such an inspirational item right on the desk. It will accommodate almost everything you need to keep an eye on while writing and working in general.
Bathtub Book Caddy
Designed for your comfort, the elegant wooden caddy keeps a glass of wine and a book – basically anything you need for relaxation after a long day – within reach. The arms resist slipping and the bottom features a thin silicone layer to ensure no unwanted incident when you enjoy your time!
Unlike most word games or board games, you need no table or surface to play Bananagrams, which makes it so portable and convenient to bring along when you head outside. Let’s have a cozy gathering and see how good your writer actually is with words!
If you haven’t known how a book smell (blame the empire of technology), you are about to find out. These special candles are priceless for the nerds, as they evoke the sense (and scent) of a peaceful library. There are various versions of the most classic pieces of literature, and they might put the writer in the atmosphere or the setting of the story.
Lovely Gifts for Writers
The Little Library Cookbook
I can’t be the only one who rereads the description of food in my favorite novels! And the aspiring writer will have the moment of their life experimenting with Padding Bear’s marmalade or the Queen of Hearts’ decadent tarts in the kitchen. The treats will also be a pleasant surprise for your family dinners, holiday gatherings, or celebrations.
Fingerless Writing Gloves (Pride & Prejudice)
Uh oh, all the nerds are going to chase you down until you tell them where you get these awesome gloves from… I’m kidding! However, I’m serious when I recommend it to you. It’s just annoying for us to write with cold hands during winter, and common gloves are far too inconvenient.
They also have “The Great Gatsby”, “Alice in Wonderland”, “Still I Rise”, “The Night Circus”, and many more.
Tea is my first choice if I need a drink that helps me focus and relax at the same time. And here is a very special edition of tea as gifts for writers. The bags are tagged with famous literary quotes from all over the world. Now, your aspiring writer can sip finesse while working on their latest piece.
Who doesn’t want their exclusive signature? Now your writer can finish their invitations with a nice flourish or leave their mark on precious belongings (such as their books!). They can even stamp a seal with their initials, address, and more. It’s a true gift of elegance!
Hi-tech Gifts Writers Will Love
Wireless Typewriter Keyboard
You might be wondering what is so hi-tech about a typewriter? Surprisingly, it can connect with (up to) 3 devices through wireless technology. We can set a system with our laptop, tablet, and mobile phone for a productive kit. If your writer loves vintage style, they will feel strongly inspired to start great content.
Amongst gifts for writers and readers, Kindle Paperwhite keeps ranking higher and higher, due to the convenience it offers. Have you ever thought you could read in the dark? The built-in light allows the screen to be visible without any other source of lighting needed. It resembles a real paper page, and you can read your books anywhere, anytime you wish.
Do you know where we usually have the most amazing ideas? Bathroom and bedroom in the dark, I would say. With this pen, the writer just needs to grab their notebook and start scribbling down their brilliant ideas, saving them for later use. Maybe you don’t know this secret, but random sparks are the best counter against writer’s block.
Digital Voice Recorder
Writers need to review and record for materials, and they need a slim, pocket-sized recorder for it. Even if they have already had one, it’s always good to have a backup plan. I mean, they might end up ditching their current one for yours, that’s how good it is!
Young Writer Items
The Writer’s Toolbox
Writer’s block is awful for every writer, and our young pen might be inexperienced in dealing with it. However, you can lend them a helping hand through this tool (created by an expert teacher in creative writing). It is similar to a dice game, and they will receive unexpected plots to ignite the creativity asleep inside them. Who knows, you might be putting the very first stepping stone for a great piece of literature.
Rory’s Story Cubes
Does the word ‘generator’ remind you of something huge? Well, this story generator is pocket-sized, but the effect it has on children’s imagination and language development is tremendous.
Children from 6 years old and above can enjoy the game to the fullest. Simply roll nine dices and combine them into a story. It’s a good practice!
Mini Zen Garden
Don’t be surprised if the youngster has already developed a taste in mature gifts for writers. The creative process might be stressful and pressuring sometimes, and a tiny Zen garden will never fail to deliver a tad of peace, giving them a short but necessary break.
Are you thinking it’s irrelevant? Well, it will prove you wrong when the youth stuffs it with their books, laptop, and a few other writing tools – because it makes them feel fashionable while still maintaining the novelist vibe.
