Are you unsure what to get a your bookworm friend as a gift this holiday season?
Look no further because I’ve come up with a Bookish Holiday Gift guide.
Just for you. Complete with suggestions, links to some amazing bookish shops, and photos for inspiration. Through Small Business Saturday, I will be sharing a couple of categories with you each day to help you pick out that special something for the special bookworm in your life.
Every bookworm loves to open a gift and see a book inside! We can honestly never have enough of them in our lives. If you know the kinds of books your bookworm likes, you can start there. You can always check out their Amazon wish list, if they have one. Or you can stop by a bookstore and have a bookseller help you out. If all else fails, a gift card to their favorite bookstore will not disappoint!
2. Bookish Candles!
Did you know that there are companies out there that make a reader’s experience complete by creating a scent inspired by the books and characters we love? Here are three bookish candle companies that I love, and that your bookworm friend is sure to love too!
Not only am I a rep for them for the month of November, but I’m also a huge fan of their shop. The Bookish Flame has over 100 candles to choose from in their Etsy shop! Their candles cover a wide range of bookish and other fandoms, so there is something for everyone! They also have Hogwarts House and House Blend packages available for the holidays where you can get three candles for one low price!
These adorable little candles make perfect stocking stuffers and there are so many to choose from— including holiday themed candles! They also have a monthly subscription box that is only $20 a month, with free shipping in the US and Canada! Check out their website for more information.
Luna Love’s candles are not only gorgeous, they smell incredible, and the designs on her labels
are always stunning. Not to mention, a portion of all sales go to charity! If you gift your bookworm friend one of these candles not only are you supporting a small business, but supporting charity as well. What a great way to get in the holiday spirit. They have a number of bookish candles in their Etsy shop, but also ones relating to fandoms as well.
Just check out this gorgeous Stars Hollow Annual Autumn Festival candle! This photo was taken by my friend Winnie (aka @hundredacrebooks on instragram). Winnie also has a coupon code, so go over and give her a follow and use it if you shop at Luna Love this holiday season.
Book lovers can never have too many book marks! And there are plenty of shops that offer different kinds. There is something for every kind of bookworm!
This shop has bookmarks in a variety of different beautiful, vibrant designs! One thing I love about Hey Atlas bookmarks are that they are double sided. Plus the corners are rounded so that they don’t get all folded and yucky looking. If your bookworm friend also likes stickers, journals, prints, or cozy beanies, Hey Atlas has those in their shop as well!
If you’d like 10% off your Hey Atlas Creative order, you can use my coupon code, noseinabook at checkout! Plus you get a free, exclusive bookmark with every order you place!
Mary’s bookmarks are gorgeous wooden creations with hand-burned designs on them. She has many different seasonal designs, as well as favorites that she keeps in her shop. If the bookworm in your life likes things that are unique and fun, Mary’s bookmarks would be perfect for them. She also makes cute coasters. Check out Marked By Mary on Instagram to see when she is going to stock her shop!
