Now I know PiBoIdMo participants are awaiting a final post from me, your fearless leader.
Well, that is still to come, once I am feeling better. Perhaps tomorrow? Monday? It shall come soon, never fear, says Fearless Leader.
In the meantime, I have something to make YOU feel better.
Gifts for writers! And by gifts for writers, I mean gifts that you shall immediately place on your wish list. Why? They’re just THAT awesome.
I’ve put together this list of my 10 personal favorites, but I have a more than 100 other literary lovies to tickle your holiday fancy on my Pinterest board Things Writers Like. So hop on your sleigh and slip over there once you’ve perused this pile. (Geesh, enough with the corny alliteration, Tara.)
Let me know which gift is your favorite, and feel free to add to the list in the comments!
1. Modern Wooden Alphabet Necklace available via SevenSparrowGoods on etsy.com.
Men, don’t leave. I know this first gift is for the ladies. Don’t worry, I have plenty for you. See #2.
2. Famous Author Action Figures available via ebay.
Ka-pow! Bam! Zonk! NEVERMORE!
3. USB Typewriter available via uncommongoods.com.
If you miss the satisfying click-clack of an old-fashioned manual typewriter, here’s the perfect solution for you. It remains modern with a USB link to your preferred device–a PC, Mac or iPad.
4. Notebook Paper bed linens available via modcloth.com.
Can’t find a piece of paper in the middle of the night? Write on your pillow. Yep, this duvet set comes with washable markers. You won’t even get mad at the kids for drawing on them.
5. Storymatic Game (Kids Version) available via mentalfloss.com.
6. Book Rest Lamp available via mentalfloss.com.
Ah, there’s no place like home. Home for your latest read, that is. The soft glow of the lamp is enough to read by, plus you’ll never lose your page.
7. AquaNotes available via myaquanotes.com.
No more great ideas down the drain! (And while you’re getting clean, may as well use “Wash Away Writer’s Block” soap.)
8. The 3Doodler available via the3doodler.com.
OK, so maybe you wouldn’t want to write a novel with this, but wouldn’t it be cool to give your fans your characters or signature in 3D?
9. Vintage-style custom bookplates available via oiseaux on etsy.com.
Every writer is a reader, and your books are cherished keepsakes. So treat them that way with gorgeous vintage-style bookplates. This shop offers over 100 other vintage styles.
10. Charlotte’s Web tee available via outofprintclothing.com.
A classic gift. Out of Print Clothing offers tees inspired by your literary favorites, from Goodnight Moon to Call of the Wild, from Charlotte’s Web to The Great Gatsby. You can never have too many books or too many book tees.
Happy shopping for that special writer in your life!
