5 perfect gifts for copywriters this Christmas
Christmas is the time for giving, and for copywriters, there are plenty of gifts that are perfect for the occasion. Whether it’s for a copywriter friend, a member of your team or for yourself, these gifts for copywriters are sure to be appreciated at Christmas or any other occasion:
1. Laptop riser
Copywriters spend a lot of time typing so having a laptop riser or sit-stand platform can help improve posture and comfort while working. It can also keep the laptop at a better viewing angle which can reduce repetitive strain injury and help them keep mobile as well as comfortable while working.
There are plenty of laptop risers on the market, so it's easy to find one that fits your budget. To make the gift extra special, why not throw in a wireless keyboard and mouse?
2. MacBook Air
Small and light, but with more than enough power for word processing and web browsing, this is the ideal machine for people who need to take their work on the road with them.
This should be top of every copywriter's letter to Santa. If you can't stretch to the MacBook, any new lightweight portable laptop with a long battery life will be much appreciated by any copywriter!
3. Presso portable espresso maker
Every writer needs a good cup of coffee (or sometimes something a little stronger!) to get those creative juices flowing. This award-winning Presso portable espresso maker is the perfect gift for any copywriter who loves their coffee. This stylish device is great for making espresso on the go, and it’s easy to use - ideal for freelance and remote writers who work on the go.
4. Livescribe Smartpen
Ever fallen asleep in a meeting? Spilled coffee all over your notepad? Now you don't have to worry. Thanks to this Bond-esque gadget everything you hear, write or draw is recorded. Simply hook this bad boy up to your computer after a meeting, et voila! Job done. Perfect for copywriters and creative writers too.
5. The Unpublished David Ogilvy
David Ogilvy is something of a God among copywriters and this collection of his private papers provides an incredible insight into the mind of an advertising genius. This is an essential read and would make a great gift for your favourite copywriter this Christmas.

What makes the best gifts for copywriters?
When it comes to finding the perfect gifts for a copywriter, it can be difficult to choose something that they’ll truly appreciate. After all, writers often have a very specific set of needs, and it can be hard to know what they’ll find useful and what they already have. However, there are a few hallmarks of a good copywriting gift. Here are just some:
Writers need a place to record their ideas and thoughts, and a nice notebook or journal is the perfect gift. It can be used to jot down ideas, write down quotes, or just record daily musings. Writers need certain tools to help them with their craft. Whether it’s a special pen or pencil, a voice recorder, or a laptop or tablet for writing on the go, any of these items can make a great gift for content writers and copywriters.
Writing tools, subscriptions and professional development courses can be expensive, but you could opt to gift a subscription to a platform that they'll get great value from. This is a practical and thoughtful gift that will make a world of difference to the writer in your life and their career success.
Writers often need a little bit of inspiration to help them get started or to get over writer’s block. A book of inspiring quotes, a collection of short stories, or even a writing guide from an industry master can be a great gift.
You might think that writing is a cushy job, but in actual fact it can involve late nights, intense brain work and long periods of sedentary activity. All of this can take its toll on the writer's physical and mental wellbeing during busy periods. Treat the writer in your life to some TLC and encourage them to take a break with gadgets such as home massagers, foot spas, a day pass to a spa or even a night away for a change of scenery.
Whatever copywriter gift you choose, you're sure to earn a special place in your writer's heart when you reward their hard work!
