Remember when I said that my last post was my final winter post? Well, I lied! I looked at my list of post ideas and saw that I hadn’t written my bookish gift guide. I’ve seen some amazing things online and in person to share with you! I have a lot of book lovers for friends so maybe I can convince them to treat themselves to a product or two.
As always, I hope that some of these ideas help you with some last minute gift ideas. Even if it’s not for Christmas, then a birthday or a thank you gift!
By the way, this post isn’t sponsored! I just found The Literary Gift Company when I was looking through Google and saw they had a bunch of great ideas!
What I love about this doormat is that it perfectly describes a home.
At least for a book lover anyway! I much prefer staying home reading or when it’s freezing outside. It’s much comfier and I’m a social outcast! Haha! You can never have too many door mats. When your old one gets too filthy, you can throw out and use the next.
HA! Is this true or what?!
The brain is a muscle, right? What else better to exercise our minds and take us travelling around different worlds than reading? If reading was considered an actual exercise, I would be super toned and practically an athlete now! Do you think it’s too late to make a recognised one?
Quite a lot of my book friends have at least one Penguin mug in their life.
I don’t actually mean a mug with a penguin (though that is a cute one!). I mean the book publisher ‘Penguin’ who have an amazing collection of classic book designs on them. I’d say they were pretty iconic so would make a brilliant gift. A cup of tea while you read…bliss!
This is something I’m planning on getting for next year to help me keep track on what I read. I tried to do it with my bullet journal but I got bored trying to create my tables. The thing about this particular journal is that it has a list of the Top 100 books on Goodreads for you to tick off. It also has a reading log, place for reviews, a table of books you want to read and more!
Sounds great for all book lovers in your life!
Have you ever had friends see a book on your bookshelf and ask if they can borrow it? I have and I’ve had a couple that never came back! Yes, I’m still salty!!
A great of keeping track on them is by treating your shelves a little like a library! You can put details of the book, select a date you want it back and even stamp it like a proper classic librarian. So cool!
I’m tempted to even get it for the stamp! I’m a child…
You don’t have to get this specific candle (though you totally could because you would get to say that you’re smelling Draco). Haha! I’ve really been loving candles recently and I’ve been wanting to support smaller businesses. When I found Nali aka A Court of Candles on Etsy, I adored the sound of her candles! They’re all named after books, book characters or places in books!
How cool, right?!
They sound so nice and, since she has a large amount of candles for you to check out, I’m sure you’ll find one from a book you love!
Ever looking for a sign to put near your bookshelves? I think this is perfect! It’s not that we buy too many books…it’s just because we don’t have enough bookshelves in our lives!
The final gift for my bookish gift guide is actually something I see a lot of my favourite booktubers using. I never knew they existed until them and that is a book sleeve! There are so many incredibly talented people on Etsy who create book sleeves but, as soon as I saw cats and books, I knew this was mine!
I’ve actually ordered one while I wrote this post!
A book sleeve is basically a protective pouch you can pop your book in to keep it safe. That way you don’t have to worry about it getting damaged or dirtied while in your bag!
What bookish items have you got on your list this year?
