In addition to being a godsend when you are in a rush, these are some of the most LOVED gifts any writer wants.Click to tweet
There are literally hundreds of fabulous “instant” gifts you can give your favorite writer. Here are a few of my all time favorites.
If you want to give your “instant” gift in person, print out the Amazon Description Page and insert it into an envelope or in a beautifully wrapped box. Depending on the gift, you might be able to time an email delivery announcement to arrive the next day.
In my mind, Amazon Prime comes close to trumping any other instant gift … so if your budget allows for it. Choose this one first. Your recipient does NOT need a Kindle device, they can download various free reader apps on their computer or tablet. They will be able to borrow Amazon Prime eligible books from a selection of a million titles.
A gift card in any amount is always welcome. Your recipient will think of you every time they download a new book! With this electronic gift card you can choose a standard delivery message, an animated message OR a message that includes your photo!
Here is a great choice of Gift Cards that enables you to print your own Greeting Card. Stuff your card in an envelope and you are done!
If your typing speed is slower than a snail, you should consider DICTATING YOUR BOOK! Great gift for yourself!!
Dragon Speaking Naturally just keeps on getting better and better. It takes a bit of time to set up and “teach” the software to recognize your voice, but once you do you are off at the speed of talking. Send this as a gift, so your recipient can download and register it in their own name.
When you are looking at a Kindle Book page … look in the column on the right side.

Here are some of my favorite Kindle Gifts. They are perfect for writers and self-publishers.
Gary Webb’s Three Book series titled PREPARE, PUBLISH, PROMOTE is a fabulous foundation for author/publishers. It gives you a great foundation and loads of great tips on writing, publishing and personal productivity. I highly recommend getting all three books for anyone interested in book publishing and even for those who have already started.
