Buying gifts for writers can be tricky. After all, they are typically introverts, engage in a solitary habit, and let’s face it, probably have enough notebooks. Which is why I’ve put together this list of cool gifts for writers for this Christmas season.
If you are looking for gifts for writers, check out these unique gifts. I promise, they will make the writer in your life smile with gratitude!
Does the writer in your life write books? If so, he or she may be one of the millions of writers who can’t figure out how to get the book in front of the public. Thanks for a new and unique gift for writers idea, that problem has been solved. Some gifts for writers double as clothing or iPhone covers, and will help the writer advertise their book. Choose from one of the following writer gifts to help them sell more books.
· T-Shirts and Hoodies. When people wear a t-shirt or hoodie with print on the front of it, most people can’t help but read it when interacting with them—or even when they’re just walking by. And throughout history, smart marketers have taken advantage of this human tendency and printed the shirts with company logos. The thinking was that if people saw the company name, it would cause them to remember it next time they wanted to buy a product.

But now it’s possible for writers to wear a t-shirt or hoodie that makes people ask them about their book. Yes, it’s true! The increasingly popular “Ask Me About My New Book” t-shirt and hoodie is the latest craze in writing gear. It allows an author to become a walking advertisement for their books. When they wear the shirt in public, they are informing everyone they see that they have written a book and are open to talk about it.
So when you give a writer this gift, you’re not only giving them a cool t-shirt or hoodie, but you’re giving them an innovative way to market their book!
· iPhone covers. In addition to clothing that doubles as advertising for writers, you can purchase an iPhone cover for all models that also prompt people to ask the writer about their book. These iPhone covers are clear with black writing, or in the case of the black iPhone X, clear with white writing.
Most people carry reusable totes these days, and the bags are typically chosen based on their carrier’s likes and dislikes. In the case of the writer, this simple black and white tote bag with the word “Writer” in retro looking print is the a perfect gift for writers.
Everyone likes to start the day with a warm cup of coffee or tea, and if that mug has a personalized quote on it, all the better. When shopping for gifts for writers, coffee mugs can be an inexpensive yet cherished gift. For example, there is a mug with the words, “Wake up, Drink Coffee, Write,” and another that says, “I’m Editing Your Grammar as You Speak.” And perhaps the most perfect gift for writers: “Careful, or You May End Up in My Book.”
Finally, you can purchase books for your writer that will help them be more productive and sell more books. I’ve written a few on the topic that would be ideal gifts. How to Publish a Book on Amazon, How to Build a Writing Empire in 30 Days or Less, The Weekend Writer, How to Relaunch Your Book, and the Writer’s Toolkit are all available in Kindle, paperback, and audio book versions and would make great gifts for writers who are looking to improve their craft.
