Office Makeover or Office Products
Take care of the writer in your life by taking care of their writing environment. Remake their office or desk area, or purchase products that are easy on the eyes (but not distracting!).
Fingerless (Typing) Gloves
Hello innovation! How cool is this keyboard that connects to your iPad? I found this one via Wired.
Another cool Etsy discovery! These photo story cubes help the writer come up with different scenarios and settings. Easy!
Writing Inspired Decor
YouAreYourWords.com allows you to place your favorite quotes against a photo you choose. How cool to frame yourself with your favorite text/copy!? What piece would you use?
This gift is useful, and not just pretty! It's a pen that also stores small post-it flags and serves as a bookmarker, too. The advertisements I've seen tout it as a great tool for research, but I'm thinking about all the book reviewing I do. It would prove useful in marking up texts for that. You can find it at Everyday Innovations along with a couple other reader-focused tools.
Another useful gift for the writer in your life is a subscription to their favorite magazine or literary journal. Check out my gallery on writing magazines for some good ideas and reviews of the top writing magazines.
Gift your favorite writer a beautiful (and perhaps even functional) specialty pen- whether that's a high-end writing tool, or these feather pens from Artilleriet.
