It’s that time of year again. I usually find Christmas really stressful because of all the shopping but I started planning early this year and just got the things I needed. If you’re still struggling for some gift ideas, here are a few that may be just the thing you’re looking for.
My husband recently bought me this and I think it’s a great gift for any reader but especially one who’s also a Disney fan. Get it here.
There’s nothing nicer than getting cosy with a cup of tea and your current read.
This VAHDAM Assorted Tea Gift Set is beautiful and one of Oprah’s Favourite Things for 2019.

And when the tea isn’t strong enough, a nice glass of wine with your book really hits the spot.
LSA is one of my favourite glassware makers. Almost everything is handmade and simply stunning. I have a really beautiful set of handmade champagne glasses with a swirl of gold in them but I have my eye on the Pearl range now. These Mother of Pearl Red Wine Glasses would make a wonderful gift. The design is also available as cocktail glasses and champagne flutes.
A book probably seems like the obvious gift for a bookish person but it’s actually a dangerous road. There’s a good chance they’ve already read it or it isn’t one they’re interested in at all (unless they request a specific one) but if they are Harry Potter fans one if these editions will be a safe bet. Get them here.
On our first Christmas together, himself got me a kindle and it remains the best gift I’ve ever gotten. It has all my books! Get it here.
If they are the type of reader who likes to annotate then they are in constant need of annotating supplies. Index tabs, highlighters, pens, note paper, and post-its are always needed by annotators. A small hamper with pretty stationery and maybe some chocolate and tea thrown in would make an awesome gift.

I have loved tracking my reading and books with this spreadsheet this year. I discovered the tracker on Smart Bitches, Trashy Books near the end of last year and fell in love with it! It suited my needs better than most of the trackers I’ve come across and their post was so helpful for someone… Read more
Happy Friday!! What are you reading this weekend? I have four books on the go at the moment. I’m actively reading The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix for the Halloween season. Well, I say reading but I’m actually listening to the audiobook. The narrator is quite good! I’m not familiar… Read more
Elaine Howlin Studio My love of books and journaling lead me to the beautiful art of junk journaling and scrapbooking. Using the skills I learned in my job, I was able to create templates, reading logs and other crafting items.I absolutely adore creating with paper whether it’s journals, painting, or crafting. It’s the most emotionally… Read more
I think Halloween/Autumn is one of the best seasons for creative projects. The sense of renewal, changing colours, and fun of Halloween create such a stimulating atmosphere. Having the evenings get darker earlier and spending more time inside definitely helps me focus on creative projects as well. I’ve been working on the Autumn section of… Read more
I hope you’re enjoying them
Thank you and you’re welcome 😀
That’s an interesting Halloween read. Currently, among a few other books, I’m reading ‘For all our sins’ by T.M.E. Walsh.
This looks like an amazing tracker! Thanks for sharing.
