What are the Best Gifts for Writers in 2017?
How do family and friends come up with good gift ideas for a writer? That’s where this big list of gifts for writers will help.
I first compiled this list a couple of years ago with 77 gift ideas for writers. Since then, I have updated it for 2016 and 2017. Most of the links for these items will take you to Amazon.com, but you may be able to find the items at other stores too.
For full disclosure, I am an affiliate of Amazon, so I might earn a small commission for referring you. That income helps with the costs of running this site for writers. Please keep in mind that stores occasionally run out of stock, especially in the lead up to Christmas. So if you see something you really like, you should probably order it before it’s too late.
NEWS: January 2017: The Xmas Results are Now In! Don’t you just love technology? I was able to dig down into my reports at Amazon to bring you the top ten gifts for writers purchased during December 2016. I’ve added a new section with these gifts further down this page.

I’ve sorted these gifts for writers into price brackets based upon the regular list price, but you may discover that some of these items are on sale and cost less through the links on this page.
