Looking for a Christmas gift for the book-lover in your life? Something slightly more interesting than another bookstore voucher (although personally, I would never be unhappy with that)? We’ve got you covered. Check out these sweet bookish gift ideas-
Frostbeard Studio – Book Lovers’ Soy Candles
Know somebody who loves the smell of Old Books? There’s a candle for that. Or someone with a hint of a Librarian fetish? There’s a candle for that too. In fact, whether your precious book-lover is in to romance novels, the Outlander series, Doctor Who, or just gorgeous old libraries and bookstores, you’ll find a waxy treat to tempt their nostrils with at Frostbeard’s Etsy shop. These candles are a bit of a thing on the bookternet, and seem to pop up everywhere on bookish Instagram feeds. My pick of the bunch for the festive season? Christmas in the Great Hall. Mmm…smells like yule.
Looking for a gift for someone who enjoys wearing tight clothing while they read? Look no further. Blackmilk has you covered with their extremely popular leggings, tanks, skirts and dresses, with collections inspired by Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, DC Comics and more. Mel is a big fan, and will personally vouch for their comfyness.
Basically, Etsy is a treasure trove for book fiends. I just discovered this store and have fallen in love! I would love to build up a really good bookmark collection. And have them displayed in some kind of hanging showcase in my house, from where I can lovingly select a different bookmark each time I start a new book. It’s going to happen.
For the sophisticated reader among us. Stylish black + white literary designs on prints, tote bags, mugs, and notebooks, inspired by the classics. All items on offer at this store would easily blend in with any type of decor. My favourite is the Jorge Luis Borges quote print, which is going to hang in my library someday. Next to the hanging bookmark showcase.
Also all over the Bookstagram. I have to admit, they are super cute, and they look great on a bookshelf. Just check out #funkopop on Instagram for the proof! Admittedly, they do seem to be more centred around TV, movie and comic characters more than anything else, but you still have a good chance of finding a little plastic icon to suit you (or someone else). There are soooooo many to choose from, too many options to start listing here. I’ve seen Harry Potter Funko’s, Hobbit Funko’s, Sherlock Funko’s…..and if you’re a fan of HBO TV series, boy howdy! You’ll be in heaven!
So, now your Christmas shopping list is sorted! Go forth and buy my presents!
