Top 10 Bookish Gifts

Christmas is nearly here! For me Christmas means driving around looking at Christmas lights, a hot day floating in the pool, watching the kids unwrap their presents, a game of backyard cricket and bocci, eating delicious food and drinking a beer. And while I love Christmas day, sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect gift for the people you love. So I’ve put together a list of my top 10 bookish gifts for the book lover in your life.
WARNING: This list may be a little bias towards people who love drinking Tea, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and Lord of the Rings.

1. A Bookish Mug

The truth is most book lovers favourite thing to enjoy with a good book is a cup of tea or coffee. And you can’t enjoy a hot drink if it isn’t in your favourite mug! These mugs I found on Etsy would make great gift ideas and there are so many book quotes to choose from.

I already have a Harry Potter Platform 9 3/4 one of these, but would love to collect more. They come with many different images and quotes and if you are arty you could even attempt to create your own.

I haven’t met many book lovers that didn’t have a borderline obsession with notebooks and journals. There’s just something about drawing, note keeping and lists that puts a smile on a book lovers face. And the best part is there are so many out there that it’s easy to find the perfect one for the perfect price.
