What are some good gift ideas for writers?

There are a lot of great gift ideas for writers from one end of the cost spectrum to the other. On the high end, nowadays a professional writer needs access to a computer and online account. Many writers use laptops and carry them around to write where they get inspired. Many places accept submissions or written pieces online now. On the opposite end are simple notebooks and journals. For a beginning writer a journal and a nice pen might make a good gift. There are inexpensive hard bound journal or even gorgeous leather covered ones or personalized journals for writers. Another idea might be a subscription to a good writer’s magazine or buy some books about writing styles or books related to the genre of writing a particular writer writes in. If the writer you know is a hand writer and writes a lot, a pile of spiral notebooks or pads of paper might be a good gift idea. There are also small handheld recording devices for dictating that can be carried around in a pocket or purse. This might be a good gift for a writer to enable them to get those brainstorms down so they don’t forget them by the time they get to where they can write them down.. If they work on the computer a voice command writing program can be very helpful to a writer. They aren’t difficult to work with and don’t take long to master. Voice programs also save wear and tear on the keyboard and the hands since writers can develop carpal tunnel syndrome from repetitive motions at the keyboard. These writers’ ideas vary in price and scope but you are sure to make a hit with a writer by acknowledging their craft with a gift related to writing. Mama Nono
