Gifts for writers: Literally grammar grumble mugMost writers rely on a regular injection of caffeine to keep their creative juices flowing. This Grammar Grumble mug is therefore the perfect present for anyone who cringes at the frequent misuse of the word “literally”.

You could even splash out and release their inner grammar nerd by buying the full set of six mugs.

Scrabble alphabet letterG coasterHow about a Scrabble-style alphabet coaster to go with the grammar mug? Or any mug for that matter?

I was given one of these as a birthday present. It’s now adorning my desk, where it’s catching the coffee stains as well as serving as a useful reminder of my name!

Pencil sockYes, I know what you’re thinking… socks are a somewhat predictable Christmas pressie. But nobody ever said that they have to be plain or boring!

These fun pencil socks are ideal gifts for keeping writers both sharp and warm during the winter months, while they furiously tap or scribble away.

What could therefore be more appropriate than this set of 6 Jane Austen wine glass charms?
