Gift Guide: Gifts For Book Lovers That AREN’T Books

 

 

gift ideas for book lovers

 

Many years ago I used to do gift guides on this blog and I THINKKKK I remember why I stopped doing them…they are fun to do but OMG I have been working on this post 5ever (no REALLY I stopped doing them because I started doing my Handmade Holidays series instead and couldn’t juggle both). But really I thought MAYBE this would be ready for next Christmas especially with having a new baby that makes my blogging time limited! BUT I abandoned some sleep and household chores (eek!) to get this done.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE gift giving and I love when I find the ~PERFECT~ gift for somebody. I try to be thoughtful and really think about the person I’m giving to! I love someone knowing I really put thought into a gift rather than them being impressed with a price tag (although $$$ presents TOTALLY can be thoughtful FOR SURE). But you know what I mean….I’m trying to really make them know how much they mean to me and that I really KNOW THEM.

SO today’s gift guide is all about those book lover’s in your life…aka basically my wishlist because *waves* hello book lover here in case you didn’t know!!

(P.S. I also stand by everything I talked about in this post in 2014 and some of it still is available on Etsy!)

We don’t currently have any room for traditional bookcases so I have to get a little creative!

THIS IS SO COOL. Decorative and I can store some books that I want to also show off!

Love this spacesaver bookshelf!

bookish bookends

I have this awesome shelf that Will set up that spans the whole length of our couch and is directly behind it and I have books on there along with other things but I need some bookends SO BAD and I am obsessed with these. This shop had some real cute ones…hard to choose!

Perks of Being A Wallflower is one of my favorite books ever (and movies honestly!) and I love these notecards and would love to send them to all my bookish friends!

These are the cutest notecards! You can have them personalized with your name or have them plain with no name!

If you’ve ever read Looking For Alaska by John Green you know all about the final words obsession and this one is Francis Rabelais last words. From the book: “Francois Rabelais. He was a poet. And his last words were “I go to seek a Great Perhaps.” That’s why I’m going. So I don’t have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.”catalog    I already have a cute wall hook thing but one could always use another wall hook…especially if it looks like old catalog card drawers right??

 

So tell me…which ones would YOU want in your home?? What sorts of things are on your bookish wishlist??

Retail Therapy: The Jamie-Is-Trying-To-Push-Her-Bookish-Agenda-All-Over-The-New-Apartment edition

 

Retail Therapy is a feature here at The Perpetual Page-Turner book blog in which I combine my love for bookish things and shopping. Each time I’ll feature bookish accessories, bookish themed items, bookish goodies or gifts that are perfect for that bookish person in your life.
I’ve been very sporadic with this feature since I started it last August — partly due to not doing a ton of shopping/browsing because I was saving for the wedding and partly feeling like there are too many features like this lately and so maybe it’s not a good use of my time as it may be redundant. But nonetheless, I am a freaking shopoholic so I must share when I find something I love.
Typically I only showcase one thing per post but since I haven’t done it in a while…I’ll share a few that I’ve found while browsing Etsy for things for the apartment!

 

I found these lovelies when I was on a search for bins to put on this really cute shelving unit we got from Ikea but Will quickly vetoed them (“Don’t you already take up enough of the apartment with book things?” It’s true…I do!) but I thought they were such a cute upcycle to do with books that people are going to discard of because they are beyond repair. You can find them at THIS Etsy shop.

 

I was looking for cute refrigerator magnets (umm I totes am going to do the Instagram magnets with Stickygram for sure) on Etsy because our apartment is bare since we are newly moved in and I decided that naturally my priority needed to be to decorate the refrigerator with cute magnets. As I was browsing I saw these Harry Potter word magnets and got excited for all you Harry Potter fans out there! You know I’ve promised to rectify my bookish confession about having not read this series but I just HAD to share nonetheless. Maybe one day when I’m a huge HP fan after reading the series (which I better be since all of you have heckled me so much!) Found at THIS Etsy shop!

 

Lastly, I was looking for something small to go on the wall in our kitchen since, well, our kitchen is small so we don’t have a lot of room and I thought this was just darling! Found HERE at this Etsy shop!

 

What sort of bookish decorations do you have in your home?? Feel free to point me towards anything!

 

 

I am not affiliated with any of these Etsy shop owners nor am I receiving any sort of commission for this post. I simply just want to share all the bookish things I find.
