Gifts for Writers: Great ideas!

Love this list of non-notebook gifts for writers.

Family members have been giving me notebooks–and fancy pens–as gifts since I got out of college. It’s a nice sentiment, really, it is, but all of my writing really happens in my laptop (it has the smudge marks from repeated use to prove it). I like the pens but I’m always afraid of losing them, and some of the notebooks are really precious but I don’t want to “ruin” them by marking in them and then forgetting about them.

But a friend gave me an editing-themed mug and I have used the heck out of that. (I particularly like it when I’m editing, duh). So more of that, please!

  1. Sadly my family doesn’t even give me notebooks. Whenever my writing comes up in conversation they get these indulgent smiles, like you’ll give to a four-year-old who announces he’s going to be a lion wrangler when he grows up. But I’ve share the list on Facebook. Maybe someone gets the hint 😉
