The Ultimate List of Gifts for Writers in 2017

Gifts for Writers
What are the Best Gifts for Writers in 2017?

How can your family and friends come up with good gift ideas for a writer? This big list of gifts for writers will help them.

I first compiled this list a couple of years ago with 77 gift ideas for writers. Since then, I have updated it for 2017 and 2018. Most of the links for these items will take you to, but you may be able to find the same items at other stores too.

Full disclosure: I am an affiliate of Amazon, so I might earn a small commission for referring you to these products. That income helps with the cost of running this blog. Please keep in mind that stores like Amazon occasionally run out of stock, especially in the lead up to Christmas. So if you see something you think would make a good Christmas gift for a writer, you should probably order it before it’s gone.

Update from January 2017: The Christmas Gifts Results Are In! 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.
