Features | Even More Holiday Gift Ideas for Book Lovers

The last two years I've shared some holiday gift ideas for book lovers on this blog and as the holidays are all about tradition, I'm here to share some more today! If you've got a book loving friend/relative and no idea what to buy them, I am here to help.

Literary Emporium are particularly great at enamel pins and this year they've started selling some inspired by gothic novels, dystopian novels, and now Shakespeare's heroines. These three are just a few examples of a much wider selection available on their website and I think one of these pins inspired by your loved one's favourite novel would be a gorgeous gift.

You can never go wrong with a beautifully designed copy of someone's favourite book and this collaboration between Vintage Classics and MADE.COM definitely fits the bill. Unfortunately these are the only three novels to have been given the MADE.COM treatment so far but if you know someone who loves any one of these three titles, then I'm sure these gorgeous covers would be a welcome addition to their collection.

If you know someone who A) likes to carry a book with them at all times and/or B) likes to keep those books pristine, a pouch to keep their book safe in their bag might be just the gift they never knew they needed. There are hundreds of book sleeves to choose from on Etsy and around the web, these just being three adorable examples. And, if you're the sewing type, you could even make one yourself!

If dystopian and gothic literature aren't your friend's bag, Fable & Black do a whole host of super cute pins to choose from. Some, such as this Howl's Moving Castle pin are still specific to certain books, but many others, equally as adorable, are more general to all book lovers, and every one would look perfect on a book lover's jacket or backpack.

My last suggestion, and, I think, the most lovely, is a special edition of a favourite children's book. The novels we loved as children often remain the most special to us and I think a beautiful hardback edition of someone's childhood favourite is always going to be a winner. Puffin Classics do a wide range of hardbacks with pretty patterned designs, including this edition of Charlotte's Web and many more besides. If you want something even more special, design house MinaLima and Harper Collins have released a few of these gorgeous interactive, illustrated versions of popular fairytales and stories, each as stunning as this copy of The Beauty and the Beast. And last but not least is the Puffin in Bloom collection, all of which have covers every bit as beautiful as this edition of Heidi.
