It is December! Snow is falling. Christmas lights are shining. Christmas is practically here! And that means that it is time to shop for presents!
I don’t know about you, but I personally love shopping for Christmas presents to give to my family. I love trying to come up with creative gifts that they won’t expect, but gifts that also fit with their hobbies and interests. My family also likes to do this, which means that I get really cool writing and reading related presents.
Whether you are a writer or a reader, or you happen to know one, this list is for you! Here is a complication of writer/reader things that I have and love. I hope this provides some inspiration for what you might like to buy for someone or put on your wish list!
Writing computer decals! What better way to start off your writing time than looking at that when opening up your computer?
I know that some writers don’t like music playing when they write, but I do and I know that others do too. Consider getting one of their favorites to listen on CD. If the writer you are thinking of uses a music streaming service, maybe buy them the upgraded version.
Wear a shirt that proclaims your writing dreams! It also really boosts your confidence in your writing when you wear it (trust me).
Writers have to write. It is in the name. A computer sleeve makes it easier for to write when traveling since you don’t have to worry about your laptop getting broken.
Creating a book-themed gallery wall is a super fun way to decorate your room and show off your love of books.
If you’ve participated in NaNoWriMo, then why not ask for some NaNoWriMo swag? There are various cups and mugs (as shown here), and T-shirts. If you’ve won NaNoWriMo, get a winner T-shirt to show off your win!
Readers love books. They love everything about books. Therefore, they need shirts that tell people that they love books. After all, readers really love books.
A bag that is perfect for toting around all your books and writing supplies!
Necklaces are a fun way to show that you are a writer while dressing up your outfit. And there are plenty of just book related necklaces out there too!
A book stamp! What better way to permanent claim a book as your own than giving it a personalized stamp?
And finally, books! After all, writers and readers adore books. If giving a book, maybe give one of your favorites, or give them a book that you know they love. If you are the one making your wish list, don’t shy away from putting all the books you want to add to your collection on it! If you are fine with used copies, Thriftbooks is an online book store that sells both new and used books, ranging from like-new to acceptable. Used books on Thriftbooks are typically around $4 to $5 dollars, whether paperback or hardcover. It is my go-to for buying books.
Well, I hope that helps you with your Christmas shopping or wish list making! Merry Christmas everyone!
