Gifts for the book lover

I love to read.  Books, blogs, magazines, what ever has text –  I’m on it.  I usually ask for Barnes and Noble gift cards to get more books, but if you wanted to give something more personal – check out the items below.

 Book Lover Clothing:
While chatting with colleagues in the break room, one colleague mentioned this wonderful web site where you can buy old book cover, silk screen t-shirts at Out of Print   I recently purchased the Alice in Wonderland t-shirt and it’s super cute!  If you decide to place an order, make sure you look at the size chart.  I am normally a size medium, but ordered an extra large and the t-shirt fits medium/large on me.

The tag on the shirt is a library card !

Book Lover Jewelery:
If your book lover is a fan of the Hunger Games (and who isn’t!) this Girl on Fire necklace will make a lovely gift.

Literary fanatics will get a kick out of this banned book bracelet. It’s a fun conversational piece that reminds us to celebrate the right to read.

Paperback Perfume by Demeter:
I wouldn’t have believed it, if I didn’t find it online.  There is a Paperback fragrance which includes cologne, lotion, bath and shower gel from Demeter.  This scent is a ‘novel’ idea for the book lover or someone who loves the scent of a library.

Hope you find these gift items helpful.  Do you have a book lover on your gift list?

    Great ideas! I bet my sister would love that ‘Alice in wonderland’ TShirt, because it’s one of her favourites books!

    I love reading aswell. I’m currently reading the 4th book from ‘The Southern Vampire Mysteries’ series from Cherlene Harris (these books inspired ‘True Blood’ TV show). The complete collection has 12 books and I have till the 5th one so maybe it’s time to add the 6th one to my Santa’s list!

      Hi Maria,

      I didn’t know about the True Blood series until it was on HBO, so I never picked up the books. I love reading vampire stories, as well as dystopian type stories like the Hunger Games series.
