It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. It is starting to feel quite festive and there is only a few days to go before the big day; Christmas dinner, the queen’s speech and most importantly, time with loved ones.
What this time of year also brings is the dilemma of what to buy. One of the things I love most about this time of year is buying gifts for other people. I have been looking through the internet and have found some lovely gift suggestions for the lover of books in your life.
First, there is this lovely book journal. I adore using journals like these. It’s a nice and useful way of making notes about books you’ve read (this is helpful when running a blog or simply if you like to work through your thoughts after finishing a book.)
There is a section for the title, author, and then the second half of the page is a notes section. There is also a section for books you’d like to read, books you have borrowed and books that you’ve lent out to people too.
I think this would make a lovely stocking filler for any book lover – perhaps with a lovely pen?
The second gift is this very cute Book Lovers Chocolate And Book Gift Set from Quirky Gift Library (via Not On The High Street.) I mean, hello! It combines books and chocolate. It had me at that. There is a bar of chocolate (where you can choose from nine chocolate types and is made using yummy Belgian chocolate.) This will have a book quote on it too.
You are able to pick between five of the hardback clothbound classics collection from Penguin which include Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H Lawrence (this one is for adult’s only,) Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift and Emma by Jane Austen.
All this comes with a gift envelope so it’s a great gift for anyone you know that loves the classics.by
