Gift List for a Writer Student or Author
There are Many Items Which Can Add a Touch of Ease and Fun to the Work
If it is a writer that you are searching out a gift for then half of your problem is already solved, you know what it is that most interests the person that you are shopping for.
Gift giving involves finding exactly what it is that a special someone is interested in and then purchasing an article or an experience that revolves around that area of interest. It is a pretty open field of gift ideas.
Writers and students research and write on what they have learned. Anything that is associated with writing or an office desk is potentially an appropriate gift for them. Computer accessories are another popular request made by those who work on researching and writing reports or articles.
It's the Little Things That Make Work Fun
Office Supplies are an Attractive and Practical Present
Writers virtually always need office supplies and materials. There are thousands of delightfully themed notebooks and notepads that are easily found in most Office supply and department stores.
Perfect for jotting down ideas or experiences as they happen these notes can then later be used to create bits and pieces of new articles or assignments.
Computer paper or writing pads come in a variety of colors, weights, and styles. Decorated with their area of interest these can be delightful gifts for the recipient. Animal, fairy, floral, antique cars, dinosaurs, travel, art, or fantasy there are themed gifts on all manner of subject.
There are thousands of designs, colors, and themes in paper products and one of these items is going to be the one that delights the person on your gift list.
A Sedentary Lifestyle is Not Healthy
Students, office workers, editors, and authors spend a large amount of their day at their desk. Being sedentary for long periods of time is not healthy which means that physical activity for students and desk workers is very important.
A timer can help to remind them to get up and walk around the room at least once every hour. Better yet a standing or crank desk can get them up on their feet for longer periods of time. A gift certificate for the local pool, golf course, bowling alley, spa, or fitness club will give them a break that will help to get fitness back to the forefront.
People who spend a lot of hours at the computer may find it difficult to break away from the office when deadlines are approaching which makes a fitness gift even more important.
Upright work desks, foam memory foot mats, and health orientated fitness chairs make excellent gifts. Under the desk exercise equipment such as a foot peddler or stepper will allow individuals to sneak in a little much needed exercise while they work.
Theme it to Their Favorite Interests and Hobbies
Office supplies such as pens, pencils, erasers, paper clips, file folders, organizers, stapler and staples, dictionary, thesaurus, or any other necessary desk toppers are always very welcome additions to a writer’s life.
These items are often easily found in a wide variety of colors and patterns, so if you know of any particular area of interest that fascinates your writer friend, then you can quite easily theme your gift idea.
Horses, fairies, mythological monsters, flowers, cats, puppies, antique cars, or nature scenes; whatever it is that your author friend likes can be the main theme for your gift. It is amazing how something so simple as a uniquely patterned writing pad can make a writer feel just a little more creative.
A daily planner, organizer or address book can help keep his or her world a little more organized. While a wall or desk Calendar with large date squares can help a writer keep deadlines and meeting dates handy. Writing well presented articles often comes after a great deal of research on the part of the writer so office supplies and organizers are always needed to keep the desk area and its potential for confusion within some small degree of normalcy.
Give a Gift to Stimulate Creativity
Another gift area to examine for a writer or student is the gift of a special experience. Imagination, creativity, and learning are individual to each person.
People base much of their creative endeavors on their emotions or experiences so a mini vacation, or tickets to a local theater, concert, or play are a very suitable gift choice.
Gift certificates for a local restaurant or resort are also gifts that offer up new emotions and experiences to the writer. When purchasing that special something for the student or writer just keep in mind that these are individuals who write. Theme your gift to accommodate those needs.
Ideal for Those Who Spend a Lot of Hours at Their Computer
For students, writers, or business people who use their computers for extended periods of time a set of keyboard stickers to replace the letters that have disappeared from the keys is a unique and practical gift that they will be sure to appreciate.
If you spend a large part of your day on the computer then you know exactly what I am talking about. The keyboard letters wear off with use and it can occur quite quickly.
I work online and although my keyboard is still in good working condition I have used it so much that the letters I use most often have worn away. The letters e, r, t, i, c, n, and m have disappeared from my keys. Letter stickers work perfect to replace the numbers and letters worn away with use.
Keyboard Letters Can Wear Off Quite Quickly
Replacement keyboard stickers can be used to highlight letters for visually impairment, color code specific keys, define language, and also to display codes for gaming or work ease.
Simple to apply the letters fix firmly into place. They are an easy way to highlight the keys you need to see. For workers, gamers, and writers this is a low cost alternative to replacing their computer's keyboard.
I do product reviews and write articles for my living which means that I spend the majority of my working hours on my keyboard. I've discovered that it really does not take very long at all for a new keyboard to lose its letters.
I'm an old school typist so my fingers pretty much have the keys memorized but the lack of letters on my keyboard can still cause a few problems and especially if my husband or grandchildren get on the computer. They don't have a clue which letters are where on my keyboard so their time spent online can be more than a little frustrating.
Writer, blogger, wife, mother, and grandmom. I love to write and I love to shop, combining these elements just seemed logical so here I am.
