Christmas Gift Guide

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.

Beauty and the Beast Pin – ShopDisney

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.

Teacup and Tea

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.

Wine Glasses

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.

Illustrated Harry Potter Editions

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.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone illustrated edition Jim Kay J.K. Rowling

Kindle

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.

Annotating Supplies

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.

    Persuasion by Jane Austen Valentine's Keepsake Journal

    February 11, 2020 by

    My idea behind this was a collection of items a Georgian lady might be given by her lover/sweetheart. So I created this keepsake envelope collection that can be used as a reading journal and included Persuasion by Jane Austen because of the letter near the end of the book. Any book where the characters exchange… Read more

Hopefully, you’ll get some ideas for what to read for the readathon but if you don’t I have a Goodreads shelf with loads more recommendations. As always, there’s no pressure to complete the challenges. You… Read more
