Holiday Gift Guide for Readers and Writers (Plus a Giveaway!)


I pretty much love everything in this gift guide! These are such fun gifts for the reader, aspiring writer, or published writer in your life. These are fun twists on gifts that aren’t your typical fiction or nonfictionΒ books (although those make great gifts as well). If you want more ideas, I also shared another list over on Inspired by Life and Fiction!
