As writers, we like to think of ourselves as a bit ‘out-of the-box’, and generally our taste reflects this. So if you are blessed (or cursed!) with a writer in your life, how do you buy them gifts they will absolutely love? Forget the chocolates and Tesco’s ‘Book of the Month’, this is what writers really want:
