So you’ve made friends with the ever illusive introverted fiction writer. As it gets ever closer to Christmas we need to start thinking about what the best gifts would be. Here are some ideas and places to get started.
1. Etsy Customisable
Artists love supporting other artists, that’s why Etsy is the first one I’ll mention. There are plenty of unique things like nicknacks, mugs, and shirts. But the real reason why I’m linking this is for the customizable aspect of Etsy. Try stalking Pinterest for writerly quotes to put on a customized moleskin, tote bag, or bookmark.
2. Amazon Inspiration pieces
If your writer is always looking for inspiration, try some of these gifts.
Tea (with literary quotes on the bags)
Wax stamps – to get a little handwriting in
Hemmingway pencil cup– just look at it!
3. Things for Cats and with pictures of cats on them
If your writer is stereotypical and you’re running low on time, stores are sold out, or you want to by for a minimalist/utilitarian consider going to your local pet supply shop and buying something like…
4. Plant-related things.
5. A book (on writing)
My book recommendations:
The emotion thesaurus– I never knew I needed this so badly until I was gifted it.
Book in a month guide– Fill in the days and stay motivated as you go
Writing the breakout novel– great for inspiration
Paper hearts Volume 1 (some writing advice)- my favorite book of the year
Novelists Bootcamp– To get your writing in shape
Make a scene– a classic revamped
get known before the book deal– a little bit of advice on getting outside their room
your first 1000 copies– get this before they submit to publishers
wild ink– for young adult writers
and lastly, their favorite fiction book. Whether that’s a remastered version or something they’ve had pinned on their Goodreads. The best book is always subjective. So go to your local bookstore and pick out something that you think will excite them!
