It isn’t quite December yet, but I’m willing to bet most of you have begun your Christmas shopping. Just in case there is a book lover in your life, here is my list of top twelve gifts for book lovers:
The Bookshelf Quilt . . .
I’m a quilter myself, but I haven’t attempted anything like this yet. Don’t you just love it? I know I do! This amazing quilt is available at DoorBeeDesigns.
For the little ones in your life . . .
It’s important to pass on our love for all things literary to the next generation, but it can be easy to get caught up in the rush of time. This t-shirt will help us busy parents remember to pause and read to our little ones. It’s available at FlorHildaDesigns.
For those who appreciate the benefits of going digital but miss the look of paper books . . .
My poor Kindle has been dropped more times than I can count and is in desperate need of a protective cover. These beautiful Kindle Covers are available at KleverCase.
Because this is SO much nicer to look at than a boring plastic desk organizer . . .
I have so many pens, highlighters, and pencils! Right now they are all standing in this sad little purple plastic divided squarish thing on my desk. *sigh* Just think what a smile this would bring to your beloved bibliophile every time she/he reached for a pen? (It also looks handy for holding unused bookmarks . . . assuming there is such a thing.) There are a couple different versions of this holder available on Amazon.
For your crafty book lover . . .
I have no idea what I would use this for, but I am POSITIVE I could come up with something! It just makes me smile. 🙂 Available on Amazon.
Appreciating the convenience of an ereader, doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten our first love . . .
If this candle truly smells like antique books, I’m going to need a year’s supply. 😉 Available at WertherAndGray, the candle has fantastic reviews.
Click to Tweet: A Book Lover’s Christmas Wishlist!
For those who need to bring their library with them, or those who like to bring the library home . . .
You know it’s true! This bag is available at MinnieandMaude.
We’ve said it many times, but now we can just hold this up and keep our eyes on the page . . .
So the laundry needs changing, the dishes need washing, and the pharmacy is closing in an hour. Don’t worry, we’ll get to it . . . after just one more chapter. 😉 This necklace is available at PaperHeartDaily.
Might as well put the confession in writing at this point . . .
Overslept, bloodshot eyes, begging to nap at three in the afternoon . . . the signs are all there. This necklace will save us from having to explain them. Like the necklace above, this one is available at PaperHeartDaily.
Because what could make a book lover smile more than favorite book memories available at a glance?
RuckusPop will make any book lover their very own custom bracelet featuring their favorite books! (I am happy squealing here!) I happen to think this is just the best idea ever!
To go with the necklaces and because it’s true . . .
I definitely need a pair of these. You can find them at GirlPowerPendants.
This last one should go without saying, but just in case . . .
Yes, that’s right. We have a stack of unread books taller than the Statue of Liberty, but we still adore receiving more! (If you are concerned, please refer back to gift idea number seven.) If you need suggestions as to which books to buy, may I suggest you peruse my reviews?
I honestly hope this list has been helpful for someone, but if you think this post is just a thinly veiled attempt to help my husband with his Christmas shopping . . . you wouldn’t be wrong. 😉 (Not that he doesn’t do just fine on his own.)
