Shopping for the Writer in Your Life

It’s that time of year again.   If you’ve got a writer in your life, here are some places to shop:

Levenger’s, home of desktop porn writer’s and reader’s furniture and accessories in wood and leather and other high-end materials.  Check out their portable editor’s desk, or their cast iron combination ruler and paperweight, just for starters.

Or there’s Museumize, for all sorts of replica artwork, jewelry, and knick-knacks.   If you want a gargoyle or a pair of New York Public Library lions, this is the place to go.

Or you could get him or her the world’s best fruitcake, which comes from the Collin Street Bakery in Corsicana, Texas.

If all else fails, there’s always a gift certificate from the brick-and-mortar or online bookstore of your choice.  It won’t win points for originality, but — writers being, almost invariably, insatiable readers — it will almost certainly be appreciated.

One thought on “Shopping for the Writer in Your Life

  1. They’re not glamorous, but I love Levenger’s Circa notebook systems for keeping track of markups, addenda, and outlines for stories yet-to-be-written. (There’s also Staples’ version, which miraculously fits the same holes as the Circa). Also prime catwaxing opportunity, as things can be sorted and re-sorted whenever the need (for distraction) arises.

    Another idea – pens. Variety: fountain. And inks. For the ink-stained wretch. http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lxkd3xrEru1qf2fjuo1_500.png (not practical, but shiny)
