Writers can become so focused on one thing that we forget about everything else. Give them a helping hand by buying them a wall calendar. A month to a page calendar provides a writer with the chance to record deadlines and reminders. My calendar hangs close to my desk in a place that I can't miss when entering or leaving the room. I check it at least once a day and as soon as I have a deadline or appointment of any kind, I scribble it down on my calendar.

Similar to the writerly jewellery I posted a few days ago, but a lot less subtle, is a writerly t-shirt. I love the one pictured above (find it here on Zazzle) but there's a massive choice available all over the internet.

I don't know about you but the moment I turn on the shower or lie down in the bath, my muse comes knocking, well, splashing or poking, you know what I mean. Of course, I don't have anything to take notes on when I'm in this situation. My children long since outgrew bath letters. I do my best to keep the ideas in my brain but often I forget some details.
Aqua notes must surely be the answer. They're waterproof, to the point that you can use them underwater, and recyclable too.

Why not buy your writer friend a writerly magnetic kit for their fridge? They can use it to kill a few minutes while the kettle is boiling, or if they're a tad stumped creatively and need a moment out?
You can find quite a varied selection at the Literary Gift Company.

I don't know about you but I need caffeine to write and what better way to improve a writer's caffeine supply than with an inspirational or funny mug?
You could even buy them one that will notify people in their vicinity of the writer's busy status, like the one pictured to the left.
