Grammar Gurus Unite!
What It Is: These plates are completely and totally after my own heart – this is probably one of the more personal picks I’ve featured on this blog! As many of you have probably deduced, I’m a writer by trade. Part of my ‘real world’ job involves righting (or writing) the wrongs of others, and these ‘common grammar error’ plates hit some of the most common quandaries that plague many an everyday memo, press release, and article. I’ll admit, my lay / lie is rusty, but I’ve mastered the others. Anyway, a really hilarious gift for the writer (or grammar Nazi) in your life to break out for your next book club gathering. Oh, and please don’t hyper-analyze this post for grammar please, even a seasoned pro likes to lay off the rules here and there (see what I did there?)
Who It’s For: Either ironically as a gift for your friend with rotten / awful grammar skills, or amusingly as a present for your friend that’s always not-so-gently correcting your figures of speech. Also not a terrible idea for the little ones; best to drill those good writing skills in early.
What It Costs: Depends on where you buy them from – between $10 – $15 per plate.
Where It’s At: So originally I found these on ModCloth ($50 for a set of 4), but you can also apparently buy them from the source, grammarRULES! ($68 for a set of 6 + $40 shipping). On the higher end, I know, but too fun not to pass up.
