In keeping with Sophia’s excellent gift recommendations, I propose to add one of my dearest obsessions to the list: notebooks! You can never have too many, there is no place or situation that could not be edified by a notebook’s inspiring, yet practical presence. The more notebooks you have, the more opportunity to jot down dialogue, plot ideas, grocery lists, or random attempts at spelling if you have a pre-K human in your family! And if all that fails to grab you, what about all the pretty colors?? Of the infinite variety to choose from, here are a few of my picks:

Or, you could choose something more whimsical based on the writer’s genre or favorite things:
What about inspiration from a favorite book? I’m totally getting this for my Harry Potter-loving niece:
For Historical Fiction folks:
Any Southern girl needs a monogrammed one:
And last, but not least, for the author(s) in your life who are under insane deadline dilemmas, publisher problems, or egregious edits, you need this:
So, from me to you, Happy Holidays and Happy Writing (in an awesome new notebook)!
