This boho style bangle features strips from magazine and newspapers, creating a cool design in a lovely shade of blue. Each bracelet is handmade and completely unique.

Vivo Height Adjustable Standing Desk
This is the kind of practical gift that can really make a positive difference in a writer’s life. Writing is a sedentary activity, with many hours each day spent sitting at a desk. One way to help alleviate the health problems from a sedentary lifestyle is to use a standing desk. Even better is an adjustable desk that can be used sitting or standing. These desks are often quite expensive, but an adjustable desk topper like this one from Vivo is an affordable compromise.
With an ergonomic design to promote a comfortable working posture, this adjustable standing desk sits on top of your existing desk. It easily adjusts up and down between sitting or standing positions. This great to add variety to a long work day and is essential for copywriters who work from home.
This is a cute little gift, perfect for stocking stuffers or adding to a gift bag. Newton and the Apple makes geeky sets of pencils in several different themes. This is their grammar set with helpful reminders of commonly confused words like their/there/they’re and to/two/too. Available in a set of green colors, the pencils come unsharpened to display on a desk or be used by the giftee.
Moleskine Cahier Pocket Journals
Writers get ideas at any moment–in fact, creativity seems to strike at the most inconvenient times. That’s why it’s always great to have a notebook on hand. Moleskine makes these fantastic “pocket-sized” notebooks that are perfect to carry in a purse or briefcase. Whenever the perfect phrase or idea comes to mind, they can easily jot it down.
They probably don’t write their copy on a vintage typewriter, but I bet the copywriter in your life dreams of working on the next great American novel on an old typewriter. Nice printed shirt comes in neutral color options.
Available in men, women, and youth sizes in olive, gray, white, brown, and asphalt.

Grammar Police Keychain
Writers tend to be sticklers about writing and grammar, and correcting anyone who screws it up! Now you can give them a “badge” to officially recognize their membership in the Grammar Police. This cute keychain is handmade by Love Tan Co and is available in silver like a badge. This is a great stocking stuffer and a totally unique gift you can’t find in stores.
Bamboo Fountain Pen
Computers and ballpoint pens reign supreme in the office, but this fountain pen is perfect for home use, whether they’re writing a novel, a journal, or the weekly grocery list. This fountain pen is made from gorgeous, sustainable bamboo and comes in a matching case–making it perfect for gift giving.
