Book Lover Gifts

There is a new online book store this month called Book Lover Gifts. There's nothing like a bookish gift...especially a unique item or something that is a perfect fit. Book Lover Gifts offers just such an assortment of items, as well as books. (All pictures belong to and are from the Book Lover Gifts site.)

Based in London, Book Lover Gifts allows you to search their site according to type of gift, author related, or book related. You can also search according to the purpose of your gift, whether it is for a wedding or a gift for a child. They accept major credit cards and PayPal, and also offer email sign ups for their mailing list.



The site is new, so their stock is growing. In the couple of visits I've made, they have added new things each time. They have a mix of things I've seen elsewhere and new-to-me items. For example, by now most of us have seen the literary scarfs; however, they have Alice in Wonderland, pictures included, which I haven't seen yet!




Also among my favorite items was the bag with the text of Mr. Darcy's proposal. 





Although now outdated both in the library and at home (thanks to the code scanning, book sorting apps), the Home Librarian Kit makes me smile. I get that warm and cozy feeling thinking of placing cards in my books to be stamped for check out. 





And last, but not least, I loved the Shakespeare text corsage, which is actually made from pages of Shakespeare books and comes in a number of color choices. 

So when you get the chance, stop by the Book Lover Gifts shop and see what they have in store for you!

  1. I just checked out the site, and it's awesome! I really do love that Darcy's proposal bag :) It's funny, I recently talked about a text-printed scarf on me and my friend's book blog as well. Come visit me, if you'd like :P

  2. Well that's trouble waiting to happen. I want that tote bag and you're right - I hadn't seen the Alice text scarf yet! I have one of those library kits! And yet my books still go missing. I think I'm going to get some kind of adorable book stamp for the inside of all my books so that I can identify my books when I see that at friends' places. And I may know just where to go!

    When my other half banned me from buying more books, he surely didn't also mean bookish things right?

    1. Exactly. If he did, then your other half should've been more specific ;)

      Perfect gifts (for yourself) when the library is overflowing ;-)

  7. Oh I love that bag!! I have a snippet of the Darcy proposal on a coffee mug but sadly I dropped it in the sink and it has a crack. Still in one piece so now it sits on my desk.

    1. What is it about Mr. Darcy that just draws us all in?!

    2. Oh no - poor Mr. Darcy! Not to worry - we will have some nice alternatives very soon (if he can ever be replaced)

  8. I love these gift ideas and thanks for sharing with #smallvictoriessunday! My favorite is the proposal bag of course. I wasn't enthralled with Pride & Prejudice until the very end.

    Pinning and sharing!
