With the holiday season upon us, have you thought about using your writing as a gift?
- Write your sweetie a poem about a topic he likes, or about how wonderful she is. (I once wrote my husband a multi-stanza sonnet about all of his excellent stages and presented him with a stanza a week, just to let him know how special he is)
- Give a gift certificate good for a specified writing project.
- Write a filk song in celebration of your recipient.
- Write instructions on how to do something that you do well and he wants to learn how to do.
- Make a pamphlet or scrapbook of family stories or experiences that you and the other person have done together.
- Create a puzzle or mystery for your recipient to solve.
- Give copies of books you’ve written or magazines you have an article in.
I’m currently working with my husband on something my niece requested- a short book of discussions we’ve had and things we’ve told her how to do.
Now, as with most gifts, this is only good if the person you’re giving it to would enjoy it. For those that would, your writing can make an excellent gift
