I don’t know about you but I love an assortment of throw pillows! Especially the ones that inspire me. This super cute throw pillow is perfect to display in a writing space, use it for back support while writing “just one more chapter!” Or, great to prop underneath your laptop while plotting your next scene.

This “just one more chapter“throw pillow is an excellent addition to a writing space!
These Gandhi inspirational quote pencils will look great placed in the vintage typewriter pencil holder. I am a pencil junky and love the ability to erase anything I am not happy with. It helps when a piece of writing wood has an inspirational quote stamped into it. As a visual, it keeps me going when I write, so I know it will for the writer in your life.


Inspirational Gandhi quote pencils every writer will need.

Don’t forget the mug! This “Eat, Sleep, Write” mug says it all. Seriously, there is a mug of something filled to the rim when a writer is at play! Whatever floats your boat, fill it. Coffee, tea, milk, hot cocoa, wine? You’ll probably need a wine glass for that one but you get the picture. Writers get thirsty and we love pretty mugs and cups, so this is always the best and practical gift for the writer in your life.


Because writers do “eat, sleep, write” and we like to remind ourselves of it.

The writer in your life may not care for any hot beverages that belong in a mug. So for our lover of books meet the “Lolita Book Club” wine glass. With its fun graphics and colors, this is the perfect burst of fun-loving writing muse they will need.


This playful Lolita design “Book Club” wine glass is so vibrant, and it’s the perfect pair for a good book or writing one!

You have a great selection of gifts to choose from for the writer in your life, and I have to say that it will please them you’ve taken the time to research what they love to do. They will be one happy writer!
