Gifts for Writers

Words are hard. A good pen is easy.

Writing is an intense, personal challenge—the artistic equivalent of long-distance running.

The right equipment makes the distance easier to cover. We've highlighted some of our most popular writing pens below, plus a selection of pen-friendly paper to complete the gift.

The tactile glory of pencils

Using a pencil activates the senses. Sharpening requires a pleasant application of force, during which one can look out the window. Then, there's the smell of cedar (if you have a good pencil) and the sound of sharp point on soft paper. Many pencil users get in the habit of rotating the point as they write, so it wears down evenly.

For the writer who values mindfulness and serene surroundings, good pencils are a thoughtful choice.

It's the little things

Below, you'll find dozens more of our handpicked recommendations for writers, students, and journal enthusiasts. We've placed special emphasis on the little accessories that people forget to buy for themselves.
