Are you thinking of giving another notebook–one that is made of organic paper, unique design, or even an expensive one? Well, a writer will most likely be overjoyed to receive one as a gift for Christmas, but chances are they have loads of those waiting to be opened. And you do not want your gift to accumulate dust in the cabinet. And as a writer myself and have loads of writer friends in my circle, I have curated in this article the top gifts a writer wants to receive this holiday.
Dependable Espresso Machine
What is a writer without caffeine? That is just a writer and a blinking cursor. Help a writer’s flow of ideas to spurt out words and reach that minimum word count by providing their daily dose of caffeine content. That might be a shot or double espresso, or even three or four to keep their eyes wide open and brain alive and kicking.
Authentic Tea Leaves
Is your writer friend on a cool off with coffee? Well, then, support her with her caffeine withdrawal little by little. Putting a full stop to caffeine intake may cause headaches, so introduce a drink with less caffeine like teas. Not only do they aid in keeping them sane, but they also provide other soothing effects to the body. Now, that is a tea-riffic Christmas gift idea!
We are still on the coffee list. Five cups are overdosing on caffeine, but the friend can’t get enough of coffee? Then, give her a coffee-scented candle. It will feel like soaking in Arabica or hanging out with friends in your favorite coffee shop. The smell of coffee inside the room is a calming essence. And that is what a writer needs, especially when beating deadlines and word count! Or even a candle that mimics the smell of an old book. There is that kind of feeling a writer gets when sniffing the pages of a book that will inspire them to get going with their work.
Enough with the coffee, and here goes a gift to get them moving. A writer can spend hours and hours in front of his laptop. And the only time he gets to stand up is during bathroom breaks. That kind of lifestyle is not suitable for a writer’s physical health and may cause severe illnesses in the future. Why not give a yoga mat to get the physical activity going? A writer may use the yoga mat for stretching exercises, especially for his back and legs. Or he may start Pilates or yoga. Previous experience may not be required in this activity as there are tons of videos that one can follow or even enroll in the online classes available.
Paid Online Classes
Speaking of online classes for Pilates and Yoga, you may also pay for courses that will help a writer build his skills. There are special classes for writing that a writer can enroll in. Or maybe a class with a flexible schedule that a writer can watch in his free time, or downtime when he gets writer’s block.
