Bookish Gifts for the Holidays
Right now Barnes an Nobles has a really neat display books called Art Folds. When you open the book they are cut into words. I love them all. There are only three books available though... Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen (this one spells Love), the Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson (this one is a snowflake), and Anne of Green Gables by Montgomery (this one spells Joy). I really like the Read one and the Love one! Hoping to get a B&N gift card for Christmas so I can pick one up for my new bookshelves.
Next up you can't go wrong with gifting bookmarks. I love them... they are like nail polish. I remember seeing some bloggers feature the ones from Bookjigs and fell in love. Then when I went to Utah and visited a book store there they had them and I had to pick one up. They clip on to your book and have a string behind them to keep your spot. Love it, this is the one that I have:
I've listed these before but in case you missed it last year I will list them again.. Frostbeard Candles. They are perfect and really do smell great. I have been meaning to get some more to burn! They are taking a break over the holiday so you won't be able to order any till after the holidays (this is probably because by now they can't ship in time for Christmas) but it is still a wonderful gift... even for yourself.
I still love these book covers!! I think they are so clever... you can pick the letter you want (of course you might not want the book that goes with your letter!). By Penguin, I want the A! If you had the whole set it would be a beautiful rainbow.
I hope all of you are using a Mac.... :) even if you aren't you should have a skin on your laptop!! I wish I was able to change mine out (it's Justice League). Go to etsy and search.. you will find so many even ones book themed!
I am too scared to get a tattoo... and I am afraid that whatever I decided to get I would hate later and then want it off my body. Soooo why not a temporary tattoo??? They look great and when you get sick of it .. it comes off!!
Well... there was one more gift I was going to put on here but I can't find the picture of it anywhere. Hallmark has in it's hobby ornaments section a cute ornament of some books. I should've bought one for myself.. but decided against it. Though I may run there tomorrow and pick it up. I can't wait to see blog posts after Christmas to see the bookish gifts you all received.
