Everybody knows that writers own more writing materials and gadgets than necessary -- but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing. So whether a writer in your life has a birthday coming up or Christmas is around the corner, here are some of our favorite gifts for the writer in your life.
1. Audible subscription
For when they can't write, at least they can listen to books. And guess what? You can get 50% off your first 3 months!
2. Moleskin Classic notebook
Every writer has an abundance of notebooks that they haven't nearly filled up, but there's something so satisfying about a brand-new untouched notebook that is bound by something as smooth and luxurious as leather.
3. Noise-canceling headphones
Work in peace and quiet or don't work at all, right? Most writers need quiet and concentration when they're working, so whether they're in a house full of people or they need ambient music from Spotify, noise-canceling headphones
4. A planner
Monday, write. Tuesday, write. Wednesday, write...
Is the writer in your life really distracted when it comes to putting their thoughts together? We spend a lot of time around screens, so it's easy to get distracted. Typing away at your story on your laptop can lead you down a rabbit hole of random searches and social networking. Luckily, a handy tool called Freewrite has the answer to all of your distraction-related problems.
6. A domain name
Every writer needs their own website, but domains don't come free. Help your writer show their dedication and professionalism to clients and readers by purchasing them a domain name.
Okay, if the writer in your life likes the idea of distraction-free writing but isn't a big fan of being away from their computer -- for research purposes, of course -- then you should definitely check out this writing software called Scrivener.
From the website:
"Scrivener is the go-to app for writers of all kinds, used every day by best-selling novelists, screenwriters, non-fiction writers, students, academics, lawyers, journalists, translators and more. Scrivener won't tell you how to write—it simply provides everything you need to start writing and keep writing."
