Gift giving doesn’t need to be reserved for holidays or special occasions. Sometimes, a gift given for no reason is the most appreciated gift. People expect gifts during holidays, birthdays, or anniversaries but they rarely expect to get a gift for no specific reason. A gift given, out of the blue, says, “I care about you and I don’t need any special occasion to show it.”
Finding gifts for the avid writer can be a bit of a challenge. Of course you want to show that you’re interested in what they do, and that you’re paying attention to their passions. A well thought out gift is definitely more appreciated than something you pick up, on a whim, at your local card shop. Taking the time out of your busy schedule to find a relevant gift shows that you truly care.
There are many gift options, for the avid writer; here I will list a select few. This list is in no specific order but it will help give you some ideas as to what type of gift you can get for your loved one.
T-shirt – Most writers are extremely proud of what they do and they want to display it to the world, “I am a writer!” Why not get them a t-shirt? You can go one step further and have a shirt custom made. This way it will say exactly what you want.
Coffee mug – Caffeine tends to be a part of the average writers balanced meal plan, and should be consumed in large quantities throughout the day. If your loved writer is also a coffee lover, a coffee mug could be perfect.
Inspiration – For the enthusiastic writer, a little extra inspiration won’t go amiss. Consider purchasing an inspirational book. These books can be found just about anywhere. Try the Amazon store for easy shopping.

Office equipment – Writing can be rough on the wrists and having proper equipment can really help relieve the discomfort caused by typing for long hours. You could consider a gel wrist support or even an ergonomic keyboard, or mouse, which is designed to be used for long hours.

Laptop Bag – For the dedicated laptop writer, a laptop bag to carry their work around in might be suitable. These can range from a simple laptop bag to an extravagant carrying case which includes pockets for carrying things like papers, day planners, or even books.

Paperweight – If all writers are like me, they could use a little something to help keep things in place. A paperweight can be a great gift, especially when it represents something that the writer really cares about.

Inspiration Cards – Being a writer can be difficult work. It’s tough to find the strength to continue on, especially on those long, drawn out projects. Sometimes, a little pick-me-up is just what the doctor ordered. A nice set of inspiration cards can be appreciated time and time again.
Moo.com Gift Card – Gift cards aren’t always the most personalized gift choice but they can be very thoughtful. A gift card from Moo.com will allow your writer to purchase a set of business cards to help them promote their writing business. Moo.com offers great, stylish, designs on their cards.
Desk Organizer – All of us could use a little more organization in our lives. A handy place to keep things like pens, paper clips, and sticky notes is a great way to help a writer get a handle on their desk. This witty “Butt Station” has to be my favorite!

Mug Warmer – The majority of people drink coffee, or tea, when they’re trying to work. A USB mug warmer plugs right into the USB port on your computer and it keeps your hot beverage hot! Giving a writer one of these might just get you in the next title!

Gifts should come from the heart and should really focus on the person who you’re buying for. Try to keep their likes, needs, and wants in mind when buying a gift for someone you care for. Remember, a well thought out gift will be very appreciated!
