All I Want For Christmas…
A Remington Quiet Riter? Perhaps not, but why not a typewriter for Christmas? It’s the final few days before Christmas and perhaps you have that one individual left on your list that you just don’t know what to get. Or you are still looking for that one different and inspired gift to get for that one special person.
Head to your local thrift store or antique store and find an old typewriter for that perfect old-school gift. It doesn’t have to be perfect, nor cost a lot to be good, just different and unique for the individual to whom shall receive this distinct, perhaps non-traditional gift. Who knows, you may even help an aspiring writer get into the creative groove and she/he will create the next great novel or screenplay.
A person of any age can still appreciate the mechanical marvel which is a typewriter, as well as the creative inspiration which it may invoke.
See some old typewriter ads. How about that Remington Quiet Riter?:
