Are you friends with a writer?

Pat your self on the back because being friends with a writer can be a hard knock life. Giving a writer a gift is another chance for said writer to write a story about an awful present; however, you can avoid that and make a writer’s day by gifting them any of the journals on this list!

1. Freestyle Really Big Notebook:

Apparently this notebook is about the size of a textbook, so your writer friend can pretend they’re still in college. Except they aren’t, they graduated and are unemployed trying to pay for Obamacare. Anyways, this notebook is big and bright, unlike my future.

6. Q&A a Day:

5 Year Journal: This is a great gift for a writer who is organized, or for one you want to be more organized, because keeping a journal for 5 years is a huge achievement for pretty much anyone. This journal is a simple question each day for a writer to answer, so just tell them it’s like answering one Buzzfeed poll per day.

Last night I had a dream I was dating Voldemort, and I wish I had had this journal to record that. This journal will help writers to remember their dreams in order to turn them into a book, blog post, movie, poem, metal song, whatever.

10. Alice in Wonderland Notebook:

Please, someone buy me this. I haven’t met a writer who has said they didn’t like Alice in Wonderland. Granted, I haven’t really asked anyone, but Alice in Wonderland is a classic, and I love this. And so does my roommate. So just buy this for someone to bring them childlike joy.

13. Letters to My Future Self. Write Now. Read Later:

This journal is great because your friend can write a note to remind their future self to finish writing that book they’ve been putting off for five years. Writers love writing and being right, so they would enjoy writing themselves a Valentine’s Day card ahead of time, because they know they’ll still be single.

You know the phrase “do it for the vine”? Don’t worry if you don’t, it just means you aren’t a teen, or a young adult wishing she were a teen again. Anyways, writers can and will do crazy things just for the story (“do it for the article”), and this journal has 365 crazy things for writers to do.

16. 1 Page at a Time: A Daily Creative Companion:

This would be a great gift for a friend you don’t get to hang out with much, as the description says the book is the owner’s new best friend. And writers could always use new friends to write about.
