Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish gift ideas

Top Ten Tuesday: The question of the day is to list ten debut authors I am looking forward to reading in the coming year. Well, folks, I have no idea about any unpublished, debut authors or novels. So I am going off the grid and listing a bunch of cool bookish things that bookish people might like for a gift this holiday season.  Happy Shopping!

Carpe Librum Seize the Book Earrings Bookish Jewelry
Need something small for your favorite reader? Can't go wrong with earrings.

A Clockwork Orange Typewriter Book Earrings
But these little gems would be good for your friends who also like to write (and would recognize an old typewriter.)

This site has the WHOLE book on one poster or T-shirt. Shop for your favorite titles.

This one is the Banned Book Morph Mug. When hot beverages are added, the redacted words reappear. There are lots of other choices on this BuzzFeed list, each one has a BUY HERE button.

These plush dolls are called Little Thinkers. The one I've shown here is Jane Austen (of course.) There is a whole collection of these little thinkers and many of them are authors.

Cassic Book Covers knit scarf
Some literary scarves show book covers while others are quotes from favorite books or authors. Sure to be a hit with readers, especially those who love the classics.

Help the readers in our life out.  Give them a tool which allows them to have their book open without having to hold the book open the whole time. These little jewels are very helpful.

Bird Eyeglasses Holder
This particular bird just makes me happy and makes me want to laugh. I like a lot of the bookish things on Uncommon Goods site.

I Read Banned Books - Button Pinback Badge 1 1/2 inch
Need something inexpensive as a stocking-stuffer? How about a bookish button?

Cheryl Sorg will create a personalized poster for you if you give her a list of your favorite titles.  My husband ordered one for me and I love it. The other gifts on my list are fairly inexpensive. This one is expensive, but worth it. Visit her website and look around.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at Broke and Bookish.


  1. I love the scarf and I am obsessed with pins!!!

    1. You know what I want though now, is a bunch of bookish throw pillows!!!

  2. These are so cute!!! :-) Perfect gifts for a bookworm.

  3. These are some wonderful gift ideas!! I'm so glad that you chose to do this instead! I've come across Litographs before but I've completely forgotten about it until now! It's also awesome that their prices are really reasonable. I was expecting their products to be more expensive. I think I might get a poster for myself :D I would totally love a thumbprint poster but I definitely can't afford one right now! Maybe one day :)
