Today, I present to you the gift guide for writers and aspiring authors! If you are a blogger, as I know many of you are, you will likely also enjoy this gift guide for writers even if you aren’t currently trying to write a book. If you like the products in this guide, share the list with your family as a subtle hint for what to get you for Christmas! I didn’t mean to, but last year, I received so many awesome book-themed gifts because I made the ultimate gift guide for book lovers.

The Extremely Practical Gift Guide for Writers
The items on this gift guide for writers are all practical and useful for writers in every industry (including your friend who works in publishing or your neighbor who has a blog).
The Writer’s Market Guide is an up-to-date list of every publication currently accepting submissions. It is focused mainly on print publications and magazine publications, but the Writer’s Market also has specific guides for children’s authors, fiction writers, non-fiction writers, etc.
I’m not sure if the Typewriter Music Box is an essential gift, but I would love it, so that’s why I included it in the gift guide for writers. The little mini-typewriter would be a fun decoration for any writer’s desk and the little drawer would be perfect for stashing candy.
Have ideas? Then you need the Idea Journal! I like that this booklet is small enough to fit in purse or bedside table.
Everyone needs a Library Tote to carry around stuff when they are writing/researching.
You know what writers do a lot? Edit! That is why every writer needs an easy-to-use Editing Pen. Bright red shows that these edits are serious.
I’ve never seen Stamps listed on a gift guide for writers before, but I included them because some publications still ask for manuscripts/articles in paper form. Serious writers can always use a few more stamps.
We know how important coffee is for the writing process and productivity, so no gift guide for writers is complete without the inclusion of a themed Writing mug.
The MOD notebook is one-of-a-kind because after you are done writing in the notebook, the manufacturers takes the notebook back and transforms your written notes into digital copy. This would be incredibly useful for storing your ideas and notes on the computer for future reference.
Some writers are superstitious and only want to use the same tools to create all of their works. That is why this gift guide for writers includes the Seven Year Pen, which is supposed to last for seven years before it needs replacing. You can write a lot of words with a long-lasting pen like this one.
Every writer gets stumped now and then. That is why this book of 642 Things to Write About is the perfect gift for writers, bloggers, authors, and all other word-related professionals.
What good are stamps without Mailing Envelopes? No good at all, obviously.
As a writer myself, I thought really hard about what I would want to get from a gift guide for writers and I realized I would really like someone to offer me blocks of time or special favors to make writing easier. But I didn’t see anything like that available for purchase, so I created my own coupons for writers and book lovers.
In this booklet you will find coupons for interrupted writing time, a research partner, one no-complaints-allowed visit to a bookstore, book browsing time, and a lot more! Order your printable coupon book at the Daily Mayo shop.
A lot of writers are no-nonsense and practical, which is why this gift guide for writers is filled with practical gift ideas. Of course, you can get more abstract and fun with something like book-themed jewelry, but sometimes practical really is best!
