Honestly, I’m going to be real. Bloggers and writers are pretty easy to shop for. Like, just get us all the things we’ve been neglecting to buy for ourselves since we’ve been too busy side-hustling. I, personally, would love for someone to buy me dryer sheets and groceries for Christmas. And I wouldn’t say no to a new toothbrush or, like, any other potential necessities you can imagine.

(For the love, will someone just take care of me instead of assuming I’m a capable adult?)

But, if you want to get the word nerd on your list something that’s less mundane, then this blogger and writer gift guide should help.

Wearables

Pins from the Marisa Mohi Shop

My Pins || Oh, hey. What’s this? Why, it’s my very own products. Last month I announced my shop opening, and I just added three new pins to the shop. And, because I’m hella benevolent and absolutely not an Ebenezer Scrooge, everything in my shop is currently on sale until December 15. Take 20% off and adorn yourself with the very best in enamel pins for the bookish and writerly.

Fingerless Gloves || My home office is really cold, and unfortunately, my Snuggie doesn’t cover my hands. That’s why every writer and blogger needs a pair of fingerless gloves so they can type like a fiend while they stay warm.

Have you read this one yet?  I-40 and Meridian

Banned Books Lightweight Scarf || I received this last year for Christmas and I absolutely love it. The colors are perfect for wearing with jeans and a casual shirt, or with a blazer and a pair of slacks. It’s versatile enough to wear anywhere. Bonus: It’s light enough to be a good spring/summer/fall scarf, and sturdy enough to also be a winter scarf. (Oklahoma winters aren’t that intense, so your mileage may vary, especially if you live in the frigid tundra that is north of the Oklahoma-Kansas border.)

Silver and Goal jewelry

Bracelets from Silver and Goal || I’ve been trying to up my jewelry game so it looks like I actually tried to do something with myself before I headed into work, and a great way to do that is with jewelry. Silver and Goal has several fun jewelry options for everyday wear. Oh, and guess what? If you use the code MOHI30 at checkout, you’ll get 30% off. Ya girl Marisa has your back.

Supplies

Lap Desk || Let’s get down to brass tacks. Don’t nobody wanna sit at a desk 100% of the time. Also, I have a very needy pit bull-beagle-boxer mix who requires lots of attention, and she won’t let me sit anywhere but next to her on the couch most days. So, when she whines at me to leave my desk, I need a lap desk to use as I sit next to her. This one from Amazon looks both sturdy and cheap.

Lamy Safari Fountain Pen || Secretly, every writer longs for the days where paper was made of a fine fabric, and quills scritch-scritched across the surface. Until we return to those times (or finally get hired as the professor of Muggle Studies at Hogwarts), we’ll have to settle for fountain pens. The Lamy Safari is the ideal pen for fountain pen newbies and it’s great for carrying around in a bag without hellish ink leaks.

Passion Planner || In 2018, I’m going Passion Planner. I bought an eco compact so it will fit in my extra wide Chic Sparrow Outlander, and I’m really looking forward to using it. This planner looks like it’s going to be ideal for balancing personal and work projects, and I can’t wait to really dig in to what it has to offer.

Keyboard Decals || I don’t know why I love these so much. I just think they’d be super pretty on my lap top.

Oli Clips || Because most writers and bloggers are office supply nerds, they only want the finest in clips and bookmarks. Enter Oli Clips. These are the cutest way to mark your place in the book you’re reading or section off pages in your planner. They come in super bright colors, and use magnets to hold themselves in place. Admittedly, these have been on my Etsy wish list for a really long time.

Books

Playing Big by Tara Mohr || This book was recommended to me by a truly badass lady when I asked her questions about getting my business started. I’ve been slowly digging in, and I think it’s ideal for any writer or blogger looking to take their career to the next level.

You Are a Bad Ass by Jen Sincero || I’ve heard nothing but good things about this one, and many writers and bloggers I respect have sung its praises. While I haven’t read it, I do have a copy waiting for me.

Daring Greatly by Brene Brown || This is one of those books that I read, and then immediately got freaked out because it basically applied to every area of my life. I recommend it to all writers and bloggers because authenticity is key in both fields, and this book is great for helping you get there.

Have you read this one yet?  Ghost Pictures (TAKEN IN MY NEW HOUSE OMG)

One Hour Content Plan by Meera Kothand || The worst part about blogging is coming up for ideas to blog about. Some days the ideas flow like an avalanche. Other days, there are no ideas. There is no brain. My skull is absolutely hollow and this blog is rudderless. That’s why this book is great to get the ideas flowing so you can create a content plan and get on with your life.

Real Artists Don’t Starve by Jeff Goins || I’ve been following Jeff Goins for a minute now, and I like what he has to say. He’s built his platform as a writer by praising the work writers do, and insisting that artists deserve to be paid for their work. These are ideas I really need to embrace, and this one is sitting on my Kindle waiting on me.
