Cool Writing-Themed Gift Ideas
A couple of years ago, the title of "present whisperer" was bestowed upon me. Ever since, I've held onto this unofficial position with great pride.
Sure, I may not be able to answer difficult maths questions, or jump rope (embarrassing, I know), but if you need gift ideas, I'm your girl! Especially if your gift recipient happens to be a writer.
Here are a few small businesses, run by passionate people, whose original and individual creations would make perfect gifts for the writers in your life. Or, perhaps, for yourself, as a no doubt well-deserved treat.
1. Blue Stiggy
Blue Stiggy is owned by Textile Artist and Maker, Michaela. At Blue Stiggy, Michaela and her typewriter, Dorothy, make personalised, hand-bound notebooks.
Starting from £8, these beautifully crafted, eco-friendly notebooks are available on Etsy, and on Blue Stiggy's website.

2. The Paper Circus
Stationery is always the obvious answer when it comes to writing-themed gifts. But some writers are already inundated with the stuff, and might hardly have the room for an extra pencil.
If you're looking for something on brand, but a little outside the box, why not consider jewellery? The Paper Circus sell carefully created origami earrings made from hand-folded book pages.
The earrings can be purchased on Etsy, in an array of plated metal finishes. Staring from £10, they would be a delicate, yet stylish, addition to any literary fan's jewellery collection.

3. Bagsy Me First!
Kate, owner of Bagsy Me First, started making bags out of mainly second-hand books in 2013.
With a wide variety of different book covers available, you’re bound to find the perfect gift. And, if you have something special in mind, Bagsy Me First! offer custom-made orders.
