Are you looking for a gift for the aspiring author or writer in
your life? You may be tired of giving the usual. You know the
grammar book, pen set or the blank journal. With a little help from
a fellow writer (that’s me); you can choose a gift that your
loved one will treasure. Besides that they will look at you with
an extra gleam in their eye for being so thoughtful. To
celebrate the aspiring author in your life here’s 7 more of those
21 gift ideas to choose from:
8.Book on writing
Consider getting a book on writing for a more personal touch.
If you don’t know what kind of book on writing to get; try to
think of what kind of writing she does? Reference books are
always a good choice. Every serious writer is building or
already built their reference library. A book about the style
of writing or a grammar usage book to help build your writer’s
reference library would be good.
If she doesn’t already own one, any writer would be thrilled to
receive their very own laptop. If you are budget conscious, you
may get the system one step behind the latest technology to save
dollars. Consider getting the platform (Mac or PC) they are
already using. Or find out if they desire to switch platforms
before getting the new laptop.
Aspiring authors who own laptops enjoy a nice case. Try to
suit it to your writer friend’s personality. If your loved
one is one of those wonderful wacky writers, they would
probably enjoy a creative looking case with lots of color.
Of course, if their personality is on the conservative side
then a more professional black or brown brief case would best
fit. Or perhaps, if your loved one is female, she would enjoy
a purse looking case.
11.Other mobile computer accessories
If your writer already owns a laptop and case, consider some of
the mobile accessories. According to what came with their laptop,
you might get them a mobile min-mouse, web cam, mobile printer or
lap cooling desk. Thinking of mobility, a broadband card would be
great. Your writer can be anywhere and connect to the Internet for
business or fun without using Hot Spot technology. Some companies
like AT&T or Verizon offer the card free with a 2 year contract at
$40-$60 per month.
Hard working writers enjoy a dinner out at a restaurant they
couldn’t usually afford. Expensive is great but you’ll find a
little appreciation will work wonders in the aspiring author’s
life. So whatever your budget can afford, make it a special meal.
If you want to add a personal touch, get a bouquet of flowers along
with the dinner. For males consider a cookie gift basket, bottle of
celebratory wine or champagne.
13.Writer’s survival kit
Create a gift set; or hire a creative person to design a kit with
fun pens, pencils, notepads, coffee mug, pencil sharpener, eraser,
favorite writing books, journal, novel and chocolate. Or make up
your own list; just include both fun stuff and serious things. On
the fun side, look for a miniature life raft, rope or oxygen mask.
Anyway, you get the idea. Have fun and you can be sure it’ll be fun
for your special writer.
14.Writer’s gift basket
On the same note as the writer’s survival kit, design a gift basket.
In your gift basket instead of a survival theme go with a pamper theme.
Put things that will pamper a writer’s hands and/or body. You can start
with hand lotions, manicure gift certificate, bath oils and bubbles along
with a favorite book. Another idea would be to purchase their favorite novel
and build a theme around it. Use the colors from the novel and perhaps some
things from the setting of the novel. For example, if the novel is set in
another country, use items native to that country.
15.Writer’s t-shirt or other promotional ware
Get a t-shirt with your writer’s favorite writer slogan. Or come up with
your own phrase, like Writers Are HOT, He’s All Write With Me, etc. If you
already know a t-shirt wouldn’t please your writer, think about coffee mugs,
pens, calendars, caps or bags all can promote their favorite phrase.
Don’t let the writer in your life think you don’t appreciate
him. Choose one of the gifts above and touch their soul. I’m
almost sure they will gush all over you with thanks. No need to
tell them where you got the idea. Just enjoy the holidays with
family and friends. The Book Writing Coach is wishing wonderful
success to your writer friends!
