Welcome to our Gifts for Writers section. Here you will find products that would make a great gift for a writer or a book lover. Writers can generally always find items like printers, laptops, pens, pencils, desk organizers and journals useful. Readers are easy to please if you know what types of books they like to read but a reader may also buy these books the minute they are released, so you end up needing an alternative gift. Our editors have scoured the web to find some fun and unique gift ideas!
Gifts for Writers and Readers
I Turn Coffee Into Articles Mug
This mug has a clever saying. It says, "I turn coffee into articles." This is something writers do every day of the week. Many of us are powered by coffee. It is the fuel we need to make articles and stories. You can find the mug from Stuch Designs on Amazon.com.
Amadeus: The Complete Original Soundtrack Recording
This recording was performed by Neville Marriner, Academy Of St. Martin-In-The-Fields. Surely you haven't missed all those studies which prove that listening to Mozart increases your creativity?

Just think of all the masterpieces this young genius had created before his untimely death. And start writing! It can be found on Amazon.com.
