A coffee mug perfect for a writer.
I love sitting down to write with a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine, more on that later!) This message is perfect. Tick me off and you know I’m crafting 57 scenarios of revenge! Get this awesome mug here from LovableGiftCo in Phoeniz, Arizona.
2. An etched wine glass if that’s more your writer’s style.
‘Write drunk, edit sober.” Am I right? If your writer lives by this motto, this awesome wine glass should do the trick! If they don’t drink wine, that’s fine. Who wouldn’t feel fancy sitting beer or liquor out of this thing? Get it here from PenEndeavors in Holland, Michigan.
3. An antique book scented candle.
If your writer walks into an old library and swoons at the scent of old books, this is the candle for them! ‘Paper, vanilla, and leather’ will set the mood for any good writing sessions. Get this delicious candle here from WertherandGray in Wilmington, Delaware.
4. A comfy and supportive pillow sporting the very definition of writer.
Writing is a long and tiresome task. Keep your writer comfy with a supportive pillow that not only protects their back, but reminds them that they’re truly an ‘artist of the written word. Get it here from IDefineMeProject in Niagara Falls, New York.
5. An engraved wooden pencil box reminding them to write it down.
Nothing like a beautiful and inspiring box to hold the very tools your writer cherishes. There is even an option to personalize with their name. Get this gorgeous pencil box here from PaperSushiHome in Terrebonne, Oregon.
6. Custom pencils that express their love for writing.
Nothing like a little encouragement from your pencil when you’re in the process of writing a difficult scene or facing a block. These are awesome. Get them here from IceyDesigns in Dallas, Texas.
7. A gorgeous hand-turned wood pen.
Nothing screams ‘I mean business” like a beautiful handcrafted wooden pen. Get this stylish pen from JangulaWoodworks in West Fargo, North Dakota.
8. Writer inspired wall art.
Every writer I know is usually lost in the clouds at any given moment. Dreaming, plotting, and seeing things that I’m not picking up. They truly do create new worlds. Get this awesome instant download from SparksofLife in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
9. An honest writer’s T-shirt.
This is hilarious because it’s usually true. If your writer friend is constantly correcting your grammar, this would be an even more hilarious gift. Get it here from YetiTees in Keswick, Canada.

Every writer goes through bouts of writer’s block. These fun writing prompts help battle through and spark creativity. Get them here from ThePaperScientist in Lancaster, United Kingdom.
