This is the first year that I've made my living as a professional writer (imagine I said that in a snooty voice). Therefore, I feel especially qualified to recommend some gift ideas for others who enjoy the torture that is committing words to paper. Any of these would be excellent gifts for anyone who likes to write, whether they do it professionally or hobby-style.
- Twill Snap Backpack, $65 — I get so many compliments on this backpack, I'd carry it even if it didn't fit all my stuff. (Everlane)
- Sony Alpha a6000, $598 — For capturing memories on the go. A splurge, but it's $200 off at the moment. (Amazon)
- Writing Desk, $94 — A more affordable of the West Elm Parsons desk, plus the back panel flips up so you can easily prop up your devices. (Target)
- Anti-Social Network Journal, $14 — For the cheeky wordsmith, social media blackout not required. (Nordstrom)
