Five Inspired Gifts for Writers

If you’ve ever struggled to find a perfect gift for a writer friend, Buzzfeed has come up with a list of 32 suggestions. I surfed the web and turned up five more interesting gift ideas for the writer in your life:

1. Aqua Notes


Every writer knows that some of the best ideas occur to us while we’re in the shower. Aqua Notes notepads contain waterproof sheets of paper– now you can scribble down those great ideas before they go down the drain.





2. Antique Book Leather Case for a Smart Phone

1iphonecaseThese distressed leather cases for smart phones make it look like you’re toting around a vintage book. You can even customize some of these cases with your own text.





3. Bamboo Bathtub Caddy

4. Shakespeare Insult Generator


My favorite. The Shakespeare Insult Generator suggests creative ways for telling off any “obscene rump-fed horn beast” who cuts you off in traffic. I had to buy one for myself.






5. Night Writer LED Pen

How many times have you wished you had one of these? These LED pens let you write in the dark without disturbing others.

Let us know if you have any more gift ideas to add to our list!

  1. LED pen?? Oh I’ve always wanted one!!!!!! That thing is number one on my list. I will look for and buy it like my life depends on it. I don’t have #4, but I do have a book on Shakespearean insults 🙂

  2. I love the vintage book for a smartphone!
    The bamboo bath caddy is pretty cool…our local wine store has a number of wines with writing related titles that would fit well with that bath.

    • I made this list as “gifts,” but really this is stuff I want, Jee Ann, lol. I’m ordering the pen and one of those covers for my new iPhone 6+ today!

      • Whoops, My reply to Jee Ann went under yours, Julie! I should have added a spa pillow to the caddy–that would be the perfect touch.

  3. I do’t know who comes up with the authentication, but don’t they know this is a writer’s group? Now I want to add a calculator to the list. lol

    I love these lists and what a perfect idea for a blog!

    • I’ll have to check with our tech guru about the authentication, Patricia–thanks for letting us know! I rely heavily on my online calculator, that’s a good suggestion.

  4. Must. Have. That. Phone. Book. Thing.

    Cool beans…am going to order one. I hate the way my iphone looks. This is a great solution.

    • That book case really looks awesome, PJ! I think I’ll enjoy just having it around as a conversation piece.
