There are so many wonderful gifts for the book lover in your life (including yourself)….I’ve included my top favorites that I’ve found to be the most interesting and useful of gifts. In no particular order….
1. My personal favorite ~ the BookBook Case!
My middle child gave me the BookBook for my iPhone and I love it! Now I don’t have to carry a wallet ~ I have my phone, id and credit cards all in one case ~ tremendously helpful….not to mention the unique factor! There are cases available for the Mac & iPad. For more information check out Twelve South.
2. Book Darts.
Rather than highlighting, underlining, dog-earing, bookmarking, etc. etc. these little darts easily slip onto a page. Great for holding your place or marking a quote. There’s even a selection for marking passages in the Bible. Neat little store! Available from bookdarts.com
3. Touch Gloves.
Do your fingers ever get cold while reading? I know mine do ~ especially whenever winter finally rolls in (it was 74 degrees here today!). For those with an eReader, wearing gloves is not really a good solution….until now ~ these gloves are made to work on electronic devices ~ just slide your thumb or forefinger across and voila! Visit Echo for additional selections.
4. Book Purse.
This one is definitely on my Christmas List! The Etsy store of Rebound Designs has numerous titles available as book purses, and iPad, Nook, and Kindle covers. There are so many great books to choose from that I’m having a difficult time deciding if I want the Nancy Drew, Jane Austen, Frankenstein or Alice in Wonderland purse!
5. Novel Tea
I purchased the Novel Tea last year for Christmas gifts and was thoroughly impressed with the Bag Ladies Tea Company! The tea is a rich-bodied black tea and the quotes on each of the bags never fail to bring a smile to my lips! A must for any serious reader who enjoys a hot mug of tea with their novel.
To help me remember to keep the heart of a child and the mystery of Neverland, this Peter Pan poster is perfect for my wall! There are several books to choose from and all include the full text! So what’s your favorite Classic? Look up Postertext and I imagine they’ll have your classical fave.
7. Greatest First Lines of Literature Mug
Do you have a favorite first line? I imagine it might very well be on this mug! “Call me Ishmael.” “It was a pleasure to burn.” “Marley was dead to begin with.” And just for fun, check out the Bas Bleu site ~ it’s a treasure trove of interesting gifts for any book lover!
8. Bed Rest Pillow
I don’t know about you but on those days/nights that I read for hours upon hours, my back and neck hurts. One of these bed rest pillows would sure make a sweet gift! Do you have one? Do you like it/use it? This particular one comes from Target.
