27 Inspiring Gift Ideas For Writers (& Readers)

Most of the writers we've met love coffee (or tea), cats, and rainy weather. Real books ground them, and being surrounded by pens and pencils and paper makes them feel safe. 

They love word play, ideas, sentences that are properly constructed, and sentences that have the power to change their minds. They like readers and thinkers and philosophers. They also have a sense of the absurd. 

With this in mind, we put together a selection of bookish gifts for writers in December 2011 and December 2014. We've updated it for 2016. We hope you find something that you like.

Do You Want To Make A Writer Happy?

Let’s be honest, life with a writer isn’t always easy. Cereal for dinner, piles of books everywhere, weird search histories and that’s when we are not on deadline. 

We made a little something for your fridge (and your partner) to help them out and make it a little easier for them to find that perfect gift for you. Print it out and stick it up and hope Santa takes note.

If you think they want to explore the world of writing, why not buy one of our writing courses as a gift? 

Find out more about our  Writers Write gift vouchers. You can choose from our creative writing courses, social media and blogging courses, as well as our business courses.
