A Watertight Gift for the Writers on Our Holiday Shopping Lists.

We all know our best ideas come in the shower or bath, and this gift idea is no exception.

As a writer, I love my bath times.

There’s something mesmerizing about the flow of water, the bubbles from my lavender shampoo and being left alone, to think.

Mostly, I contemplate my writings and others’ writings or a combination of words, so I am bursting with a new idea by the time my water has turned cold.

I’ll jump out, hurry through the bathroom door only to find a chorus of questions: “May I have the last of the apple juice,” or “Do you know where I put my keys” and “I can’t find the head to my Lego guy.”

I watch as that lavender bubble of inspiration drifting upwards suddenly bursts.

I try to catch a few words as they fall to the ground, but I am left with only a sigh.

Last night, I came to the answer to all my bubble bursting moments. I found the watertight gift that all writers will want, especially if they don’t already own one.

No, it’s not a room of their own or a bathrobe or a hand written letter (although I’d like that, too).

I want a waterproof notebook.

Simple, right?

No more lavender bubble bursting moments because I can scribble my thoughts down under the shower or while soaking in the tub by candle light with my favorite music playing.

I searched online this morning to find an eco-groovy, Made in America waterproof notebook produced by Rite in the Rain. After stopping by the local art/stationary supply store, I found one and a waterproof pen, too.

Surprised with my luck, I rushed home, turned on the shower water and jumped in to test my new find.

Sure enough, the waterproof quality is fantastic. I scribbled ideas as they flowed out like the water, capturing them before the bubbles burst.

Yes, my friends, the waterproof notebook and pen is a watertight gift for the writers on our holiday gift list.
