Gift Ideas?


Tis’ the season of gift giving, which can be stressful. Finding the time and energy to find, make, or purchase just the right gifts can be tough, though. So, in an attempt to lighten the tension, provide inspiration, and perhaps bring on a smile, I thought I’d share some fun writer gift ideas. Here goes:



This license plate frame is a must have for any author intent on safe driving. www.cafepress.com/+i_brake_for_book_sales_license_plate_frame,396414434



When inspiration hits in the shower (and it does), this waterproof gift might be the answer: http://www.myaquanotes.com/


Is the writer in your life bored with scribbling in the same old journal? Could he or she use some new and different paper? Why not check out POOPOOPAPER™? These natural, recycled and odorless paper products are made from the (ahem) droppings of vegetarian animals such as elephants, cows, horses, moose, pandas, and donkeys. No, I’m not kidding. http://new.poopoopaper.com/

Happy gifting to all and to all who celebrate, a merry Christmas and a happy new year!

  1. These are great! I almost want to get the poopoopaper for my kids because they'd get a kick out of it (and my daughter is so creative, she uses paper all the time).
    Merry Christmas, Cynthia! I hope you are feeling well!

    1. I gave someone a Poopoo Paper photo album a couple years ago. It's a unique gift, to be sure. : )
      Merry Christmas to you, too, Kelly! And a happy new year!

  12. But . . . but I thought tension was good. Oh, yeah, right. Just in our novels. Got it. :D

    Have an awesome Christmas, Cynthia. And *hugs* for the New Year.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ha! So true, Stina! Let's keep most of the tension in the novels!

    A very merry Christmas to you, too. Hugs back at you and cheers to 2013!

  15. Those are some great gift ideas. I've got a friend who could use the shower notes. She had to call her hubby into the bathroom once and have him take dictation for her. He's a good sport.

    1. Donna, that is a hilarious anecdote about your friend and her husband. Maybe he has already given her the shower notes. : )
