6 Bookish Gifts For Bookish People

Ah yes, winter. It is freezing, the sky is gray, and the falling snow is rapidly accumulating to the point where you are trapped indoors—it's perfect :'). Now, you have a valid excuse for staying in, wrapping up in your favorite blanket, and reading a good book all day. If that sounds like a dream snow day to you, or perhaps sounds like something your friend dreams about, then this list should be helpful in finding a thoughtful and well-appreciated Christmas gift. Or Birthday gift. Or Valentines Day gift. Or a gift for any day, really.

Litographs

One of many book designs to choose from.

I found this website a few years ago and it just keeps growing! From posters, t-shirts, and more, Litographs offers unique designs made up of the entire text of your favorite book. They add new books to their collection all the time as well as new merchandise to get those book designs printed on to. Recently, they've started offering blankets and pillows which would be a dream to cuddle up with this winter (while reading, of course).

Cornerfolds Candles

I don't really remember how I came across this candle brand, but I've been following them on Instagram for a while now. They offer a wide range of candles from ones based off of books and book characters to even movies and TV shows. Honestly, I haven't purchased a candle from this business before, but their Etsy shop has extremely high ratings, so I'm confident any pick will be well worth the buy. And, for those who like to shop small, these candles are all handmade in Florida!

Enamel Pins

Who doesn't love a super pretty pin? Even if you or your friend doesn't avidly collect pins, it's still cute to have one or two you really like to put on your backpack or purse. It's the perfect way to subtly personalize something or add to your growing collection while also showing off your love of reading. You can find enamel pins on places like Amazon or Redbubble, but I personally recommend Literary Emporium on Etsy for their elegant designs (shown above).

The Perfect Mug

Knock out two things at once for someone who loves coffee, tea, etc. and reading! A new mug will never not be appreciated- especially if it's book-themed. These are pretty easy to find anywhere, but this one from The Literary Gift Company featuring the names of cats from different books and poems is too cute not to share. This is also a good website in general for other bookish gifts.

A Pretty Journal

This may not be for everyone, but I personally like to write about books after I read them. Mainly so I can remember what is going on if I ever pick up a sequel to something I read, but also because you tend to forget the little things that you thought and felt after reading a book. If you or your friends do something like this, then a new journal would make an inexpensive and thoughtful gift. If not, I highly recommend you start or recommend that they start. Soooo satisfying flipping back through all of the entries and reflecting on things you may have forgotten. I love these small pocket notebooks but obviously, you have a million choices out there.

Literary Jewelry

A little reminder to not let the bastards grind you down- in bracelet form!

We all have our favorite necklace, bracelet, earrings, etc., so why not find yourself or a friend a new favorite piece of jewelry that can also show off a favorite book? There are multitudes of options on Amazon, various Etsy shops, and other online retailers that might have something perfect for you or your gift recipient. Check out this list from Buzzfeed with all kinds of jewelry from all kinds of places.

If all else fails, a shiny new gift card to the closest bookstore can never hurt. Maybe throw in some candy with it. Still a pretty solid gift in most any bookworm's opinion.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

1938
Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

2011
www.semipartisansam.com

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.

Lifehack

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
