3. Sticky Note Dashboard for Monitors

Perfect for writers who swear by sticky notes, the FoVo Acrylic Message Board attaches to your desktop monitor and gives you extra space to arrange all of your sticky notes.

Combining the practicality of writing in a notebook with the power of having your ideas stored digitally, the Evernote Smart Notebook gives you the best of both worlds.

7. SCRIBEdelivery Subscription Box

8. Personal Embosser

Since every writer has a collection of books they absolutely love, this personal embosser is an elegant and thoughtful gift. You can customize the embosser to say “Library of,” and include their name, so they can emboss all of their books.

9. Books on Writing

Speaking of personal libraries, books about writing are always a great gift. Try a classic like Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott or Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg.

10. Writing Software & Tools

Treating a fellow writer to new writing software and tools is always a welcome gift. You could purchase writing software like Ulysses, the premium version of Grammarly, or of course, the Pro package of Journo Portfolio!

With these ideas, you’re sure to find the perfect gift for the writer in your life. Whatever you choose to buy for them though, you should probably buy in duplicate - that way you get to keep one for yourself!
