Bookish Gifts 2013

It’s the first week of December. The shops are getting busy. So I thought it was about time for my annual Bookish Gifts post. My old bookish gifts posts still get plenty of hits, and a lot of them still have working links too so feel free to look around the blog for more ideas.

First off. A pewter e-book cover by Loutul @ Folksy. My bag is like a tardis, so something like this would really protect my kindle. The picture shown is for the kindle version but Loutul does versions for other e-readers and tablets. This one is £29

I like this Horcrux t-shirt from Skreened because it’s more subtly Potter-ish, only the glasses and scar are instantly recognisable to non-potter fans. I also like that it’s more bookish than film based as so much Harry Potter merchandise is. It costs $33.99, which is about £20.72

I actually own this Go Away I’m Reading Mug. With a bar of chocolate what could be more perfect? (And yes I know more perfect doesn’t make sense) £12.95 from The Literary Gift Company

The Personal Library Kit from mental floss is perfect for those who love to organise their books, and frequent lenders. $14.99 that’s about £9.14

I’ve talked about how awesome Out of Print is before. Now they are doing jewellery too. This Alice Down the Rabbit Hole necklace has to be my favourite. $32.00/about £19.50

Or how about something to keep your Alice necklace in? That’s if you don’t mind reconditioned books. Here’s a customisable book jewellery case from Wrecked Writings @ Etsy £22.23
