Want to wish the writer in your life a happy holiday? Fortunately, you don't have to have a way with words to let them know you're thinking about them—especially when you have a list of writing-inspired gifts at your fingertips. We have collected 34 gift ideas that are sure to provide plenty of inspiration. From laptop accessories to notebooks and noise-canceling headphones, you're sure to find something for your favorite writer.

These thoughtful gifts are perfect for writers from all walks of life. Some are functional, portable laptop desk and electronic word clock. Others are fashionable, like the quill pen pin and typewriter-key jewelry. And some—like the wooden writer's messenger box—are set somewhere between the two, allowing writers to incorporate their creative side into their daily lives.

When choosing the best gift for your recipient, it's important to keep in mind their lifestyle. Are they an old-fashioned type of writer who prefers to work on notepads and avoid distractions? Or are they loyal to their laptop, and are never seen without it? These questions are sure to bring you that much closer to selecting the perfect gift.
