Plotist Writer’s Gift Guide – June 20175 min read
A monthly gift guide for writers
This month, show off your writer’s credentials, flex your creativity, then take a well-deserved bubble bath!
It’s International Bath Day later this month! Inspired by this celebration, why not invest in a big ol’ slab of Writer’s Block soap! According to the Whiskey River Soap Company: smells like regurgitated ideas and probably a vampire. Get scrubbing! And once you’ve washed away the writer’s block…
... no need to leave your lovely warm bubble bath to start your writing session! Etsy has lots of bath caddy offerings, but I love this recycled wooden one from Barnandlace. It has plenty of room to set up a makeshift bath desk with your favourite writing notebook and feather pen, and even space for your preferred glass of soda or bubbles on the side!
There are some gorgeous tattoos for writers out there in the world, but if you’re not on the lookout for permanent ink, I love these little feather-and-quill temporary tattoos from The Spiritual Cookie on Etsy for something fun but meaningful. A cheap and cheerful item that makes a nice stocking-filler or part of a writer’s gift basket!
International Fairy Day also hits later this month! I stumbled upon this little ‘fairy garden’ trend item on pinterest described as a “fairy writer bench” – with the hat and the cup of tea just so – and fell in love with the image. I think it makes an adorable item to keep on your writing desk or in your garden to encourage fairy-authors. The Fairy Garden company also have this little book bench to encourage bookish fairies!
I love this zine-like series of writing maps – essentially prompt-maps for just about any topic or setting you could think of – one about writing around the house, one for cafés, one for food and another for characters. They promise “story ideas to inspire creative explorations of the city, the home, characters in fiction and life in general”. Inexpensive and perfect to carry around for your inspiration destination of choice!
