Christmas Gifts for Writers

Looking for a holiday gift for that special writer in your life? Writers can be hard to shop for. We all know this. If you get a book, you have to wonder "Does she already have this book?" or maybe even "Did she write this book under a pen name?" Fortunately, The Hungry Freelancer is here to help with my handy-dandy Christmas shopping list for writers. Make this year the best Christmas ever with one of these awesome gifts that the writer in your life is guaranteed to love.

1. An awesome shirt.
I don't care whether your writer loves fiction, prose, poetry, or something totally random. Every writer loves the Prose Before Hos shirt by Busted Tees. Score one today. I bought mine a few years ago and still wear it all the time. It's awesome and so are peoples' reactions to it. (Usually, they go "Huh?")

2. An awesome bag.
Everyone loves Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Let the writer in your life show the world this with a Alice in Wonderland tote bag from Out of Print Clothing. Not only is it super fun to look at, but it also makes a great library or book-shopping bag.

3. An awesome book.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. No explanation needed.

4. An awesome bottle of rum.
All writers drink. This is scientific fact. If you're a good friend, you'll get the writer in your life a bottle of The Kraken for Christmas. If you're a great friend, you'll help her drink it.


  1. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies...never heard of that, must check it out. Good ideas, love the Alice bag!

  2. I love that Rum bottle!! The shirt is funny too. Fun post!

  3. Love the shirt and the rum bottle!!

  5. Thanks for the ideas! I love these.

  6. Bring on the Rum!!!! Nothing accentuates my reading night better than rum, unless it's Jim Beam
