Apple MacBook Air

Apple MacBook Air (13-inch Retina Display, 1.6GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5, 128GB) - Gold

  • Dual-core 8th-Generation Intel Core i5 Processor with Intel UHD Graphics 616
  • Fast SSD Storage and 8GB memory
  • Stereo speakers with wider Stereo sound

Now I did say that there are some cheaper options than a Cross, but this isn’t one of them. But in all fairness, this is one awesome laptop! The MacBook Air models have come with the reputation of being one of the lightest and thinnest models out there. And the latest in the line doesn’t disappoint. With up to 16 GB of memory, a 1.5 TB SSD, and back lit keyboard, this powerhouse is ready to tackle any project that may arise. Again, the price point is a little steep, but this could make for a wonderful graduation gift to help prepare your author to take on the world.

  • High versatility: Fully supports Windows or Mac, and connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or wired via USB. (Pc and Mac replacement keycaps included).

If a whole new computer isn’t within your budget, maybe a part of one is. This keyboard is so awesome! It’s so funky and neat with its top plate, and the clack of the keys emulates an old-school typewriter. But besides from being super cool. This keyboard is back-lit and Bluetooth compatible with both PC and Mac. The Azio Retro truly puts the funk in functional. Can ya dig? Keyboards in general make great gifts for writers, so if you’re looking for more check out my recommendations HERE!

I don’t know about you, but honestly I do some of my best thinking in the shower. It’s just me with my thoughts. But there’s on big problem, there’s about a 100% chance I’m going to forget every genius idea I came up with. And that’s why Aqua Notes is so handy! It’s a waterproof notepad where you can jot down all those great ideas.

Ember Mug

I’m very particular about my tea. I like it with 2 sugars, a splash of milk, and hot. Unfortunately, that last one doesn’t really stick around as long as I would like it to. But those problems have been solved since I started using my new Ember mug. It keeps my tea at a nice constant temp that way I don’t need to slog down a cold cuppa. And given the relationship between most authors and coffee (or tea!), the ember mug solidly makes it onto my list of gifts of writers. Or if you’re a water type of person… Check out these sweet bottles here!

Scrivener 3.0

There’s a few things out there that can really help take a writer’s work to the next level. One of which happens to be to use pro tools. And if I had only one tool that I could recommend to any writer… It would be Scrivener. It’s an absolute game changer. Scrivener helps you start from square one to complete your writing project all the way to formatting and publishing. It’s an all inclusive planning, organizing word processing software that does damn near everything but the dishes. I cannot stress just how great this software really is–so head over to Kindlepreneur and see that Dave Chesson feels the same way I do. Except he’s got a super neat review and discount coupon.

Gifts for Writers All Wrapped Up

Now, a super sweet pen or a bunch of fancy Moleskines definitely will make this author happy. But we writers are complex creatures that look beyond the simple tools of our trade–like a great custom tote or drawstring bag. If you’re really trying to show that special author in your life that you really care, you don’t need to really go all out. Maybe all they really need is a hug, a thank you, and some home delivered meals.

Cause honestly… Ya girl here could eat!

Cheers,
