Are you one of those really good gift givers who always knows the perfect gift to get for each person in your life?

Anyway, as a writer and book lover, I had no trouble of putting together this list of no-fail gifts for the writer, book nerd, or literature lover in YOUR life. So if you’re freaking out over spreadsheets and getting tangled in ribbons and bows, stop stressing. I got you covered.

I AM OBSESSED. I mean, I really love my planner. A lot. Very much. It helps me plan and organize my days, weeks, and months, and it stores the absurd amount of papers and sticky notes I accumulate throughout the day. A writer’s mind can be a scary place (trust me), but this will at least keep it a little more organized. (My planner is pictured below. 🙂 )
