Like every other bookworm I spend a lot of time looking at books; new ones, old ones and everything in between. However, I also spend lots of time (probably too much time) looking at bookish items and accessories…
I wanted to share some bits I own and love, have my eyes on or that I think would make great presents for any bookworms in your life.
*I do not benefit financially if you buy any of these, I am promoting for free and off my own back*
Now I would be lost without my kindle. Not only does it store hundreds of books….my partners has no idea HOW many I have on there. It also is lightweight, easy to travel with AND you can read in the dark. Now, there are lots of kindle or e-readers out there and the choice on which one is best for you is ultimately down to you. I personally have the Amazon 2019 Standard Kindle, it cost £69 and I have no complaints at all!
2. Thumb Page Holder
There are hundreds of versions of these and some are super cute. I like to shop local and support small businesses. One Etsy shop I particularly like for these is Olive and Eagle.
3. Book Sleeves
A must have when protecting books when on the go. They come in thousands of cute styles and you’ll soon become addicted. Here are a couple of my current favourites: Sewn by Rebecca Louise and Cozy Fiction.
4. Heated Blanket
Or just blankets in general. I cannot read unless I’m cosy and a blanket goes a long way in achieving this for me. I have too many already but here are some more which are currently sat in my baskets across the internet: Sweetie Plaid, Dunelm, My Little Cave.
Now I know this one seems very obvious but you’d be alarmed by the amount of people I know that use anything they can find lying around to keep their place in a book or worse still, FOLD THE PAGES. Now dog-earing books is a big no no for me so I have too many bookamrks. Despite this, I always have my eye on more, here are some pretties I might buy myself soon: Resinforyoushop, MKLCreations, JPurchallDesigns, MugofMagic.
6. Reading Journal
A lot of bookworms have their preferred method of recording what they read already bottomed out but who doesn’t love a beautiful book journal? I use online platforms and an excel spreadsheet but I love the thought of buying and keeping up with something like these: LiteraryEmorium, TeppiLiving, ThumbelinaPrint
7. Book Related Jewellery
8. Scratch Off Book Poster
9. A Bookish Mug
I don’t actually own too many mugs currently, so I feel this is one I might indulge in sooner rather than later. I’d love an “Em” mug in a really pretty design or a bookish mug like this one by mhuglife. There are so many different options I get lost in choice. Another set of mugs I love are the Penguin Collection mugs, an “Emma” one would be perfect!
10. Prism Glasses
Now I know these look ridiculous but roll with me here. What if you could actually read (comfortably) while lying down. They range in price but you can get a decent pair for around £10-20, here is an example from Amazon.
