(Said in announcer voice) "Do you have a friend or family member who is a writer? Are you struggling to figure out what kind of gift to give them for their birthday or a holiday? Well, struggle no more!"
My birthday was last week, and my family gave me the most fun and creative gifts! So, if you need a gift for the writer in your life, here are some ideas:
My mom bought me a WRITER T-shirt and WRITER tote bag! I can't wait to show off to everyone that I do what I love. They're from the TV show Castle, which I also recommend to writers.
My sister gave me a bunch of writer-related goodies. Besides a cute notepad, lined paper for lists, and neat-looking pen, I also got...
...some magnetic poetry, to give me ideas when I'm stuck on a scene, and...
...a notepad for when I get ideas in the shower! Holy cow, I've been saying for years that I need this!
I encourage you all to Google these items and consider them for either yourself or a writer friend. I know I look forward to using them!
But one gift I received that you can't buy came from my grandmother.
She made me a ceramic girl who is reading a copy of Wishing for Washington! Yes, she printed out the front and back covers of my book and glued them on! And that's not all...
...even the inside of the book is the dedication and first page of Wishing for Washington! My grandmother is so creative. I'm in awe.
So, needless to say, I have the most thoughtful family ever, and I love them.
What are some gift ideas for writers that you've seen, received, or come up with yourself?
