Love bookish gifts, but don’t need another blanket, mug, or candle? Prefer people didn't add to your presonalized TBR pile? I’ve got you covered this holiday season with a number of gift ideas to add to your wish list!
Literary washable fabric face masks. We have to wear them, why not do it showcasing your favourite novels?! There are so many available, including Throne of Glass, the classic The Hobbit book cover, this cute Alice in Wonderland pattern, Beauty and the Beast, and even Poe’s Raven.
There is nothing quite like a great cup of coffee and a good book! A coffee subscription is a great gift for those who need a real caffein fix while reading fiction. There are a number of options that let you choose the frequency of your delivery and type of coffee. Trade Coffee offers a quiz to match you with your desired coffee type, and Canadians can give The Roaster’s Pack a try.
Regardless of which warm drink you choose, there is always the risk of getting so engrossed in your reading that your drink gets cold. An electric drink warmer or Klean Kanteen are both perfect accessories to keep drinks hot for hours!
The National Portrait Gallery London lets you order high quality prints of their art! A few years ago I was gifted Mary Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft and they were perfect additions to my home office. Think Beatrix Potter, Virginia Woolf, George Eliot, and Lordy Byron.
This pun-y literary cocktail book, Tequila Mockingbird, is simply perfection with recipes such as “Love in the Time of Kahlua” and “The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose”! Together with a set of coupe glasses or tumblers this makes a great gift for the Hemingway-type in your life.
Is the only time you get alone with your book when you're barricaded in the bath? A bath caddy will help keep your book dry (and have a spot for a glass of wine!). Don’t forget some delightful smelling soaps and salts from Northanger Soapworks!
Many of the historic sites related to famous writers have been closed to the public this year—but their virtual shops remain open! Just to name a few: Keats Shelley House, The Brontë Parsonage, Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, and Green Gables!
A Cambridge Satchel large enough to fit (a few) books.
