Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is Bookish Merchandise I’d Love to Own.
I figured I would make this a roundup of gift ideas for book lovers. Here are a few things I personally would love, in no particular order…
Bookish tote bag, like this Kate Spade one from Amazon.
Bookish t-shirts, like this one from Blue Ocean Apparel on Etsy.
Book quote print. I have had my eye on these two for a while! The first one is of the Owens’ house in Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman from vhs247 on Etsy. The second is a quote from Harry Potter along with wand illustrations from Margotpaper on Etsy.
Bookish postcards. I love to collect postcards and the illustrations on these from Shop Lucy in the Sky on Etsy are pretty enough to keep and frame.
Book stamp. I go back and forth on whether or not I want to personalize the books I own with an embosser or stamp. I love the look of these from Pixum Designs on Etsy if I were to ever go the stamp route.
Book specific merchandise. I have found that most authors have links to merchandise on their websites and that is also a great place to find things.I have this Burning Lake, New York mug that I purchased from Alice Blanchard’s website. Burning Lake is the fictional town where her Natalie Lockhart series is set.
Speaking of mugs, this mug from awndigital on Etsy would be perfect for fans of the romance genre.
Bookmarks. I own far too many but I love to buy them because there are so many on Etsy and they are quite affordable!
- I often buy from Mirkwood Scribes which has new bookmarks each season and,
- Little Book Haus which has a nice variety and are of great quality.
I’m not affiliated with any of these shops or links in any way, I just happen to have been coveting these products myself for a while now.
