100 Gifts for the Writer

From Inspirational Quote Pencils to Spontaneous Thought Notebooks

— December 24, 2015 — Art & Design
If you know someone who is constantly putting pen to paper, typing away at a keyboard or tapping a stylus away at a tablet, these gifts for the writer are sure to keep the words flowing.

For the writer who likes to do things the oldschool way with pencils, pens and an actual lined notebook, there are tons of designs that will make the process of writing more inspiring. For those who like to take advantage of what technology has to offer, one of the neatest books comes from Mod, which lets you take notes and then syncs them to the cloud for digitization. For someone who could use a push to finish that short story, screenplay or novel, these gifts are a great way to give gentle encouragement.
