Bookish Gift Guide

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. As you can tell from the title, today I’m going to be sharing some bookish gift ideas. Christmas is coming and since this is a book blog it seemed appropriate to post a bookish gift guide. I think I did one of these the first year of my blog but I didn’t post one last year. I thought I’d get one out before we get to December starts so there is time before Christmas is here to source anything.  I am a massive fan of Christmas so I’m starting to get excited now. Anyway let’s get started.
  • Born to Ice / Paul Nicklen / this is an expensive one at £80 but I wanted to include it anyway because his photos are incredible and I’d love to have this book myself.
  • The Writer’s Map / Huw Lewis-Jones / if you love bookish maps then this is well worth a look. It contains essays on creating these worlds/maps as well as pictures of various maps.
  • The Penguin Classics Book / Henry Eliot / this one is basically a book about books and it looks like a great gift for any book lover.
  • Book sleeves / this is a great option for anyone who always has a book on them. The sleeve will protect your books while in your bag. Book Beau has great options and you can find loads on etsy.
  • Bookish posters / these are such a good gift option, especially if you get one related to a favourite book – for example, I love this poster which you can get on Red Bubble.
  • Maps from the etsy store, Land of Scrolls / these look so good and there are loads of options to choose from. My favourites include the Old Kingdoms map and the Middle Earth map.
  • Bookish clothes / there are a lot of different ones available. This sweatshirt is pretty accurate and this Pride and Prejudice t-shirt is another good option – both from etsy. There are a lot of options so you will definitely find something for you.
  • Folio Society edition / these are beautiful editions and make an amazing gift for any book lover.
  • An illustrated edition / again this makes a great gift if you find one of their favourite books. I got an illustrated edition of Watership Down a few Christmases ago and I love it.
  • Other ideas: bookmarks, subscription to a bookish box, a signed edition of a favourite book, a box set, bookish mugs, bookish totes or a bookish gift card.
That’s it for today. I hope it’s been helpful – I know I’m always looking for gift inspiration. These are just some ideas for you guys. Christmas is my favourite holiday so I’m pretty excited it’s that time of year once again. Do you guys love this time of year too? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
