GIFT GUIDE FOR... THE WRITER

These days, the term "writer" can have so many different meanings. When I graduated college and moved to New York City to be a "writer," it was hard to get others to take me seriously. (It still is.) Back then, it was a term that didn't mean much and certainly wasn't associated with gainful employment. But with the surge of technology, editorial websites and blogging, "writing" has taken on a whole new meaning. And while I'm now studying to be a health coach and perhaps, someday, a fitness instructor... I'll always be a writer first. No quotes necessary. :)

Phrases pen set. For doodles, deadlines and daydreams. (I have at least one of these pens with me at all times!)

Seize The Day notepad. A sweet little reminder to kick writer's block to the curb and just keep going. (Also here.)

Meri Meri mini notebook set. Too cute.

Samsung WB350F Smart WiFi Digital Camera. I got this on Black Friday and I love it. Ever writer needs a portable camera. A picture is worth a thousand words!

Kate Spade gem erasers. Erasers that are cute enough to keep out on your desk.
