Normally I’m not a “holiday gift list” kind of blogger—I always get a kick out of seeing them on other people’s blogs, but it’s generally just not my thing. However, I have recently come across a number of really cool things and had to share them, along with some classic gift ideas. Get them for a person in your life who loves to read and / or write—or pick them up as a special treat for yourself!
- Books. Obviously! You can read books I’ve reviewed by clicking here for some ideas.
- Writing materials. They have an amazing collection of goodies over at Tiny Feast, with some great pens, notebooks, writer’s mug and more–check them out for some inspiration.
- Jewelry & clothes (because writing never goes out of style ;)). Writer’s Relief has the most fantastic Pinterest board of literary items—you are bound to find something that is just perfect for the writer or reader in your life! Like, for example, these Hamlet tights, or these book shoes, or this literary dress, or this book ring.
- Louis IV-style writing desk. Guys. Look at this desk! Probably not something to run out and buy on a whim 😉 but so gorgeous.
- Writing pen for your wine glass. This gift is a nice cross-over for the writers and wine lovers in your life!
- Bookmarks. A pretty or unique bookmark is a simple but lovely gift to give. (Is it just me, or are bookmarks like socks in that they just seem to disappear over time?)
- Personal library kit. I’ve seen this kit so many places—genius idea! I’m not much of a book lender myself (each book has a very specific spot on my bookcase and I like them all to be accounted for. It’s kind of a big deal if I lend a book to someone. I’m working on learning how to share :D)), but this kit is just so darn cute.
- A piece of art featuring books. I love love love the Journeys photography series by Jason Poturica—all of the art in the series are gorgeous, but one of the pieces that feature books and text would work nicely as a gift!
- Scrabble. It’s a classic and ridiculously fun game, perfect for people who enjoy learning new words and exercising their own vocabulary.
