3 Gifts for the Writer in Your Life

Our gift guide

If you've got an aspiring author in your life, use these gift ideas to inspire their literary pursuits.

Many people know how to write. Everyone cares about having the perfect note-taking app, the most updated version of their favourite word processor and the coolest fountain pens on the market. But there are only a select few people who know how to write like pros. And they tend to be the people who deeply understand the value of putting pen to paper.

The Classic Notebook

Journal lovers unanimously agree on how multi-purpose notebooks are. whether your writer prefers the bullet journaling method (thank you, Ryder Carroll), uses them as their travel journal, or opts to express themselves in a free-flowing manner, journal gift ideas are, hands down, our favourite gifts for writers.
P.s.: They make awesome holiday gifts, too!

Journal notebooks come in a variety of forms, and you would want to understand your recipients preference before investing in one. There are lined journals, hardcover journals, vegan leather journals, dotted grid journals, and many more.

3. Gift Cards

Gift cards are a great way to give a gift—if you're not sure what the recipient wants. But they can seem rude if you don't have time to get them something more personal.

Well, here's why it's okay: They're practical. You can't go wrong with a gift card. You don't have to worry about whether or not your gift will be appreciated by the person receiving it.

You know how much money they like to spend on themselves. Gift cards allow you to get them something nice without having to worry about whether or not they'll have anything in common with the other person who gave them gifts.
