Gift Ideas For Writers And Bloggers And Young Authors

Updated on February 28, 2013

buying writing gifts for the writer in your life doesn’t need to be hard, on the contrary it can be quite fun, from humorous usb flash drives, to leather bound note books, beautiful pens, helpful programing and resources books the list can go on and on.


Every writer has at one time or another lost hours of work due to a computer issues, be it a virus or system fault there is nothing more frustrating than having to start from scratch all over again.

These is where the use of USB flash drive can make a huge difference to the life of a writer, but why go for the generic boring model that everyone else has. Try something a little different, something just as creative and interesting as the writer you are buying for.

Amazon has some great, fun options when it comes to the USB flash drives. Check out their beautiful range of jewelry, pendants and key chains that the writer can actually wear as a stylish accessory as well as useful piece of writing equipment that they can keep on them at all times. Look up the wonderful novelty options ranging small companions that sit by the computer, there is sure to be something there for the writer in your life

These wonderful USB flash drives are a great way to remind the writer in your life to save their hard work as they go, and are a sure way to put a smile on the face of any writer


Give the gift of beauty with some of these gorgeous leather bound journals and notebooks, The timeless feel of leather sure to inspire whether or not its short stories, poetry, notes, ideas or simple journal keeping, this is a gift of style and elegance that is sure to be appreciated for some time.



When thinking of gifts for writers, one of the first ideas that comes to mind, is the original tool of the trade, the simple pen.

But there is nothing simple about these pens, From 18 karat gold luxury, to a pen that allows you to write by hand for your computer there seems to be something to suit every writers style.


Having tools to aid with the long journey that writing sometimes is, can be a great help, for those just starting out and the already published author, screenwriter etc

But finding a good writing program can be tricky with so many on the market all promising the same things. The following are amazon's best sellers, with the best reviews written by the writers who are actually using them.


Books are a fantastic resources for writers, both for pleasure (all writers started out as readers) and for honing our craft. Making a great writing gift that can be used for years to come

But in an ever changing market place it pays for the writer to stay up to date, not just with the trend of writing, but publishing house’s, literary agents and the multitude of markets looking for writers in the New Year.  So a great idea for the writer in your life may be one of these fantastic books, opening up new paths that they might not have considered before.


Young talent can be inspiring to be around, encourage the young writer in your life with some of these great writing gifts, watch their imagination soar with these wonderful programs designed to help and teach them every step of their creative journey.

Choosing gifts for young writers is the same as for anybody else, with many books written on the art of writing and even on how to get published, its well worth exploring



From fun little actions figures of great authors and poets, to keep them company, to clothing, mugs and even games there is something for every writer or blogger this Christmas, I hope these few suggestions have given you some ideas on writing gifts for that someone special in your life…

Even if its you!
