Blogging and writing in general has become a much more common career than it was in the past. So, what do you get all of those writers in your life for the holidays? As the Editor in Chief at Gifts.com, I definitely do my share of writing. But, although I am a writer by trade, I realized that no one ever gets me “writerly” gifts aside from journals. Don’t get me wrong, I love a nice journal, but I have a stack of about 5 that I still need to fill up and won’t be needing another for a few years. That is what inspired me to make this list. I have the perfect list of gifts that will celebrate that the keyboard, or pen, is mightier than the sword. Here’s a hint: Give them something that makes writing, researching, and enjoying some downtime more fun.


Golden Pig Book Ends $30

Single Sharpen Pencil Holder $30

Wooden Labyrinth Game $19.99

Literary Cover Art iPad Covers $50

Classic Manual Typewriter (that works!) $199

Medieval Weapon Push Pins $12

Leather Bound Complete Edgar Allen Poe $18.88

USB Classic Typewriter $799 (SPLURGE)
