Gifts for Writers & Readers: 1st Day of Pre-Christmas

12 Days of Pre-Christmas: Gift One For Your Writer Friend

With the advent of the laptop, there is nothing better than being able to leave your office and write comfortably. This gift is something that makes that experience extra nice.

The Lap Desk

What it is:

The lap desk (or Lapdesk), is a portable surface with a cushion underneath that you can set on your lap and either write or type comfortably.

Lap Desks are perfect for days when you want to write in front of the fire.

Why it’s great:

You don’t have to sit at your desk all day! Or what if you’re not feeling great and want to write from bed? The lap desk fits on your knees, and crossed legs and you no longer need to worry about balancing your laptop while blowing your nose. Or, let’s say you have a bad multi-tasking disorder and think you’d like to write in front of the TV. Hunker down on the sofa with your lap desk, and surf, do research, make notes, or actually write while in front of the cozy fireplace while watching The Walking Dead or simply listening to music.

The Lap Desk is also great for people who journal, sketch, and write stuff old school style.

For added convenience, they have a built in handle to transport, and can slide under the bed or in a corner when  not needed.

NOTE: Also great for students, sketch artists, and people who journal.

What to look for:

Some lap desks have micro-bead pads that conform to your lap even better than the average cushions. Look for ones with a with a small wood catch bar, as that help to prevent sliding if you are leaning back a lot. The elastic straps for accessories are nice if you use note cards or writing tools and want to secure them in place. Though, honestly, I don’t use them that much.

The Lap Desk is light, easy to store and has a carry handle for portability!
