I had planned to do this post a little earlier than this but reviews and christmas shopping and just general life has been crazy. I’m sure you have all purchased your gifts for your loved ones but just incase I’m sharing some awesome bookish gifts (that aren’t books!) I’m the only hardcore reader in my home (so I hope my husband is listening!) and I love getting bookish themed presents. So, share the list around, get ideas and spread the book love!
Book Subscription Boxes
Illumicrate is a Fantasy themed monthly box that I currently subscribe to. They include a Limited Illumicrate Edition book that usually has gorgeous sprayed/stencilled edges and is normally signed by the author. They also include Fantasy themed items, which, so far has not disappointed me.
Another book box that I currently subscribe to is The Abominable Book Club. Let me tell you – I have been absolutely blown away by these guys. Their customer service, the attention to detail and the amount you get in these boxes is out of this world. It’s a horror themed box and included is their book of the month, an acursed library book (a second hand, awesomely vintage book) and treats and goodies and sometimes you even get a code of an e-book.
Bookish mugs are awesome. Just who doesn’t like curling up with an epic read, some snacks and hot cuppa. Bliss.
Again – these are awesomely geeky and smell divine. Be taken away by the smells of Lord of Rings or The Hobbit.
Also love these themed scarves. Isn’t it amazing just how stunning these scarves turn out. Why not ask for a Dr Who, Harry Potter or Narnia inspired one? Stand out from the crowd.
wow just wow. I think I need to get a few different book prints to liven up our walls. I do love these Harry Potter ones. Absolutely amazing!
Awesome for travelling with your current read. Keep your book protected with a book sleeve. I have seen some works of art – never be boring!
I love those book sleeves and scarves! And I’ve heard a lot about subscription boxes but have never really considered it as a gift. You’ve definitely given me some inspiration!
Hope you’ve got some useful ideas 😊
These are some really good gift ideas. I love the scarves and always love a book related mug. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much for reading.

Anything Tolkien would make me smile. Great finds.
Yes I love those candles – they smell amazing too.
The book print art is interesting, I like it, but I also shrink at painting on the written word. It’s like those cut out art pieces made from book pages, I’m tied between wanting them and crying for the book they were cut from.
I know what you mean, it’s a love hate thing for sure for me.
Love the idea with the book sleeves!
They are beautiful
I never really thought about getting a book sleeve until recently but I keep seeing such gorgeous ones now that I want one 😅 I love the idea of a bookish scarf too and mugs are always wonderful to collect.
Same here. I got a harry potter one recently and its a work of art in itself. Thanks for commenting.
