Favorite gifts for writers part 2

IMG_3003Finding a gift for a writer should be fun!  There are almost too many ideas.  Here are a few things that writers can use to construct their novel or to be inspired.

Ideas to inspire:

There are oodles of gifts for the writer that also loves Jane Austen.  This figurine comes with lots of funny quotes and info on the back.

Posters that you can hang in your writer’s office or corner declaring that you are a writer, or with inspirational quotes are a nice touch and show your support.
