Bookish gifts for Book Lovers

I was going through my Twitter feed when I stumbled upon this fascinating tweet.

The list contains wonderful gift ideas for book lovers. My birthday falls between 23rd of July and 22nd of August (I’m a Leo) ūüôā so I was very motivated to search for more gift ideas over the weekend. In no particular order, here is my wishlist of book-ish birthday gifts.

Clever, don’t you think?

  • A Clockwork Orange tote – cost US$22 at Society6.

Must have a merchandise with that iconic eye symbol

  • Harry Potter Maurader’s Map fleece throw blanket –¬†sold at US$54.95 at Harry Potter Shop

I can imagine taking this blanket to workshops and sharing it with fellow participants

  • Frostbeard Booklover‚Äôs Scented Soy Candles –¬†US$15 for each candle at Frostbeard Studio

There are at least 20 scents and I want ALL of them!

  • Novel-Tea Paul Cardew Teapot – cost US$48.00

I shall make Twinings Lady Grey (my favourite) in this tea pot

I thought of having a book-shaped cake but cutting it would be too traumatising for me (I don’t want to spoil the beautiful art plus do I cut in squares or triangles?). We shall have cupcakes instead!
