Perfect Gifts for Writers

1. Scrivener writing software. $40

2. IP address fee paid for a year. (Mine would be around $90. If your wondering for your writer friend/spouse, I think that's about average.)

3. Author Swag for giveaways/promotion. Cafe Press and Zazzle are great places to start. $5 and up

4. A shiny new Author Logo. $125

5. Chic office accessories to make
desk-time more fun. See Jane Work has cute stuff online, Target has a nice selection in the store. $10 and up
    6. Netbook for easy typing/researching on the go. Around $200

    7. Unique USB Thumb Drives for the sale/giveaway of e-books.

    8. Barnes and Noble or Amazon Books gift card. The best way to write great books is to read great books. Also, books on writing and books for researching themes (i.e. Celtic Myths for the paranormal writer, A History of Scotland for the Highland romance author.) $25 and up

    9. A great coffee machine...cause every writer I know needs to mainline caffeine in order to meet deadlines on top of everyday life.

    10. Dues or conference costs paid. Romance Writers of America membership $115, RWA Conference or Romantic Times convention.
