Now that Thanksgiving has ended for another year, many of you are probably turning your attention towards holiday shopping. Whether you are planning to brave Black Friday sales today, wait for Cyber Monday deals or procrastinate until the last second, the bloggers at The Hub have put our heads together to come up with some great suggestions for the book lovers on your list.
For scarf fans, Storiarts on Etsy offers infinite scarves with quotes from Anne of Green Gables and The Raven (among other famous works). For other scarf and clothing options, NerdAlertCreations offers a scarf with the Marauder’s Map on it and another of a bookshelf as well as a variety of literature-related skirts and aprons.
For the Pride & Prejudice fan in your life, try these knit hand warmers with silhouettes of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. They’ll keep hands warm while still leaving the wearer free to type or write.
General bookworms will love these bright blue knee socks that proclaim their love for the written word. Or perhaps they would like to bathe with a rubber ducky who is just as much of a book fan as they are.
Out of Print can always be counted on to offer fun, book-related products and recently they started stocking jewelry as well. Check out the gold So It Goes necklace for the Slaughterhouse Five fan in your life.
John Green fans will definitely love this Fault In Our Stars phone cover, which is available for iPhone 4 and iPhone 5.
If you know a book fan who is always unimpressed with the movie adaptations of their favorite books, check out this t-shirt which proudly proclaims that The Book Was Better. Or, if you know a To Kill A Mockingbird fan, try this Atticus Finch is My Co-Pilot shirt.
With the second movie in The Hobbit trilogy coming out in December, there are lots of options for Tolkien fans available this year. If you are getting a gift for someone who has always wanted to be a hobbit, try these hobbit feet socks. If your Tolkien fan is more of a writer, they will be sure to appreciate one of the limited edition Hobbit Moleskine notebooks. Or, if they are more of a coffee or tea fan, perhaps this Hobbit mug will be the perfect holiday gift.
If you want to give the gift of luxurious reading, this leather book weight is sure to impress. It is the perfect size to keep a book open for reading or research.
If you want to give the gift of a book, but you want a more unique option, there are lots of fun choices this year for all sorts of readers. If you are giving a gift to a Game of Thrones fan, try the Feast of Ice & Fire cookbook that has recipes inspired by the foods in the series. Or, for a Star Wars or Shakespeare fan, check out William Shakespeare’s Star Wars.
