Every once in a while, I like to set the book down and go scour the internet for geeky fabulous book related trinkets, gifts, and gadgets (I do this more than I’d like to admit). Since the holidays are approaching with lightning speed, I thought now would be a great time to start coming up with thoughtful gifts for that book lover in your life (or maybe you are the book lover…eek!). Etsy is a fantastic place to find homemade/handmade, unique book-lover-gifts, and because I love books and all things handmade, I strolled on over to Etsy for today’s finds. Here is a small sampling of some of the fabulousness I’ve found while browsing:
Now seriously, is there a better form of readable lighting out there? I think not. This Etsy seller, Oldendesigns, will even do custom orders. Prepare to find these everywhere, inside and outside my house.
Fall is upon us! What better way to bundle up than with this scarf so carefully designed with the words of an iconic tale? If you’d prefer a different story, Etsy shop owner, storiarts, has many options like Romeo & Juliet, Little Women, or Anne of Green Gables just to name a few.
A lady loves her shoes, and a literary lady can’t possible pass these up. Etsy shop owner LeadFootLucy has these and many other designs that the book-loving-women in your life are sure to swoon over. Seriously, I don’t think it gets any better than this.
I love this so much that I can’t quite come up with the words to describe it. DooneyAndMoony gives you the option of an antique bronze finish (pictured above) or a shiny silver finish for the pendant and chain, which makes this perfect for the old soul or modern reader. Are you more of a literary quote person? She’ll stick your favorite quote into one of these little trinkets as well.
Hand-stamped and hand-inked! She’s got Mark Twain quotes on coasters too. One of my favorite combinations is a good book and a hot cup of tea so coasters make for a fabulous compliment. Etsy seller, PrayerNotes, also has bookmarks!
A little trinket for the keys? How about a bookmark with a little hanging book or a brooch? Etsy seller BrotherWorks has all of this, not to mention hand-bound leather journals and notebooks. Want a deal? BrotherWorks is currently offering a 10% discount. Just use the code PAPERLOVE.
