Mr. Ng isn’t a romantic man. He tries, bless his heart, but he tends to err on the practical side. He’s never done the candy and flowers thing for Valentine’s Day and has been known to put spatulas in my Christmas stocking and paper shredders under the tree. It wasn’t long before I realized that the key to my happiness was a long, loving list. As in, “honey….this is what I want for whatever gift giving holidays are coming up this year.”
Today’s list is for all the Mr. & Mrs. Ngs out there. Those of us who may have the best of intentions and love our spouses dearly but fall short in the gift-giving department.
Valentines Day Gifts for Writers
The typewriter key bracelet always makes my lists of gifts for writers. You can’t go wrong with this one. I received two typewriter key bracelets last year and I love them. It’s a thoughtful gift and makes for an interesting conversation piece. If your wife or girlfriend is a writer, she will appreciate this gift like no other.
One of the perks of freelancing is being able to work anywhere and that includes bed, the couch, or the back deck. This laptop desk, complete with handy dandy cup holder and side pocket, will enable your loved one to work on a solid surface with no jiggling and bumping.
It’s no secret I’m not a fan of the bunny slipper stereotype. However, every time I write about my disapproval of the pajama lifestyle half the Freelance Writing Jobs community writes or comments to respectfully disagree. This is for you, oh bunny slippered freelance writers. May your feet always be toasty.
Nothing says I love you like warm hands, especially when your spouse is chintzy with the heat. I keep a pair of fingerless gloves by my laptop and wear them all winter long. If the writer in your life has icy hands, he or she will appreciate typing gloves. Trust me, I know.
No explanation necessary.
Share the romance by reading together.
