Has you family been bugging you for ideas of what to get you for the holidays? Do you have writers on your list, and don't know what to get them? Never fear! I'm here to give you ideas!
First, one of my favorite ideas ever. For any shower brain stormers: Aqua Notes! It's a special kind of paper and a special kind of pencil that work IN WATER. Even under water! It's brilliant, I tell you.
This is a bookshelf. How's that for personality?!
Can't seem to stay away from books even when you go to bed? You can take the book with you, and snuggle up with it all night long.
You know how, when you are really in the writing zone, the hours just disappear and suddenly it's the middle of the night, or nap time for the little ones is over? And you just wish time would stop so you can keep going? Or are you fulfilling all of your other responsibilities and have a story churning so fiercely in your head that you can't stand the fact that you can't get away for a few minutes to get it on paper? Then you need a Time Turner!
Ever suffered from Writer's Block? This handy block has 786 ideas to jump-start your creativity. (Does it look like it weighs about a ton to anyone else?)
How would you like a life-sized sculpture in your house? This one was practically MADE for writers. Why? This cool guy is made from the parts of a typewriter! No joke. How cool is that?
So there's this guy who makes 3D sculptures out of books, and they are amazing! Click on this link to check out some of his masterpieces. They're brilliant!
This is a working computer. Placed inside an actual book. Incredible, right? If that doesn't make you feel like writing, I don't know what will.
Writers everywhere will be dying over these shoes! Oh, wait. Maybe not writer's everywhere.... Maybe just me. They're just so clever!
More writer's blocks! These have pictures or words on all sides. You can rearrange them in tons of different ways, and the ones showing can inspire vastly different stories!
Need a party dress? One that says "I love to read?" This one was made out of a book!
Looking for a handbag to go with the dress? These were each made out of actual book covers! Each one is unique. Kinda like that dress.
I saved this one for last, because it actually warms my heart. An "It takes a group to raise a writer" notebook. Doesn't it just get you *right* here?
What are you hoping to give or get this year? Any of these things strike your fancy? :)
P.S. Thank you so much Prerna Pickett! She blogs at Sands of Writing, and just awarded me the Blog on Fire award, and the One Lovely Blog Award. I'm so flattered, Prerna!
