The Booklover’s Life by Alexandra Ivy

Usually I stress when it comes time to shop for people. I love to buy gifts, but I’m never sure what will make them happy. Unless…they’re booklovers. There’s nothing more fun than spending endless hours to perusing small specialty shops, online stores, and local craft fairs. There’s so many unique and original gifts available. Plus, it gives me the opportunity to pick up a few things for myself, lol. Below are a few ideas that I used in the past. I hope you enjoy.

Wine or tea basket with book theme. There’s nothing better than unwinding from a long week with a good book and your favorite beverage. Especially when it comes in a lovely collection.

Bookmarks and Gift Cards. I horde these like crazy. If I go on a trip you can be sure when I come home I bring a ton of bookmarks from whereever I visited.

Organizing shelves. Any booklover is in constant need of ways to store, stack, and organize their books.

Book bags. When I leave the house I always carry a book bag. Not only for current read, but to take along a notebook, pen, and spare book. You can never have too many with you, right?A picture containing indoor, table, sitting, piece

Mugs are one of my favorite gifts. I love them funny or sentimental.

T-Shirts are great conversation starters. I love to wear this particular one when I go to the grocery store. It always gets fun comments.A close up of a tree

Stationary. I’m obsessed with stationary and notebooks. The start of the school year is always my favorite time of year. Any quirky stationary or notebook or pen is an instant buy.
