Gifts for Writers: Give Them More Than Pens & Notebooks

If you know a writer and want to choose a lovely present for them, there are many interesting gifts for writers you might want to check before deciding that you should stick to the old notebooks and pens.

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.

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.

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.

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!
