'Tis the season! I normally do my wish lists in December but given that the largest shopping day is in November I didn't want to miss out on that this time. I've got a slew of writing goodies for you this holiday! Let's go!

Disclaimer: All prices listed are accurate as of the writing of this post. Prices may go up or down over the course of publication.


My WriteDay Subscription Box

If you love writer's craft books like I do, and all sorts of writer-themed goodies, like notebooks and stationery, the My WriteDay box would be a good choice for you!

Author Joy E. Held created the My WriteDay box and I'd like to let her tell you about it in her own words:

"My WRITEDAY is a bi-monthly subscription box program that delivers curated products from authors, creators, and small businesses to writers and readers in the US. It’s unique in that many products are sourced from writers who are also crafters and artisans. Each bi-monthly box delivers a writing craft book of the month and 3-7 items associated with the key concepts (journaling, fitness, relaxation, nutrition, and creative play) of Writer Wellness, my flagship program and book (Headline Books, Inc. 2020.)

The cost is $59.00 (plus tax) and includes free shipping.

Each box is inspired by literary themes, genres, and holidays. Every bi-monthly shipment includes exclusive access to My WRITEDAY Digital Magazine filled with writing and publishing tips, writer wellness ideas, fiction excerpts, poetry, special offers, social media options such as live virtual meetings, and more.

The idea behind My WRITEDAY is to help writers of all genres spend more time creating stories, engaging with like-minded book friends, and enjoying the juicy, creative life they deserve. From craft books to office supplies to fun, writing/reading inspired décor, subscribers will discover an experience designed to offer a healthful plan for living their best writing life.

My WriteDay is a great gift idea for writers ages 14 and up of all genres.

My WriteDay subscription box is a division of Writer Wellness Workshop, a woman owned, family operated, very small business that supports the health, wellness, and artistic growth of creative people.

I look forward to hearing from you, and I hope your WriteDay is fantastic!"

To get you even more excited, here's an unboxing video from September/October 2023.

Read More Fairytales Unisex T-Shirt: this features Albert Einstein's quote on a gray heather tee, sizes S to XXL. Only $20!

Go Away I'm Reading Woodcut T-Shirt: This has a fun Renaissance feel to it and has the perfect sentiment for readers who want to be left alone. White tee, sizes S-XXL for unisex and women's fitted; S-L for women's loose. $20.

Choose Your Weapon Earrings: I love the description: "Choose your weapon and make your mark." Only $25.

Jane Eyre Gift Set: Featuring a tee shirt, enamel pin, and a copy of Jane Eyre, for only $54. The tee shirt and enamel pin feature one of my favorite quotes from Jane Eyre: "I am no bird and no net ensnares me."

Writing Quote Notebooks: Shakespeare's Hamlet is $7 and Charlotte Bronte is $5. The Hamlet quote reads: "These are but wild and whirling words" and the Bronte quote reads, "I'm just going to write because I cannot help it." Both definitely speak to the writing life!

The Cruel Prince Stationery Set: The Cruel Prince, the first book in Holly Black's Folk of the Air series, is a wildly popular YA fantasy about the fae. Whether you've read the book or not, though, I think we can agree this set of cards, envelopes, and washi tape is gorgeous. The set costs $19.99.

Onyx Reading Journal: Filled with 100 prompts to help you reflect on books finished and unfinished, and a variety of other fun topics! 288 pages of awesomeness, only $15.00.

Custom Writer Desk Name Plate: by BuzzyCraft, this is a really cool way to accesorize your writing desk. Your name is cut out and goes up top, and then you can designate "author" or other title on the bottom. $113.75.

I'm Writing I Swear Do Not Disturb Door Sign: by MadTreeWoodcrafts, this is the perfect door sign to let people know you're busy, or..."busy." You can choose maple wood or walnut wood for the sign. It's only $23.00.


I hope you found something you'd like on this year's wish list. I'm a sucker for pretty things and desk goods/stationery, so this list reflects a lot of my tastes. But I hope you see good things to get on this list. Happy shopping, and I'll see you next year for the writerly holiday wish list!
