Bookish Holiday Gift Guide

I”m probably a bit late with this guide seeing as how it’s only 2 weeks to Christmas and most people have started shopping by now. But I thought I would share a list of bookish things to give as gifts because there is always someone who leaves it to the very last minute.

I don’t like recommending specific books because it will always depend on the person you’re giving the gift to. But I’ve found that classic books make a good gift, especially if you can find nice editions of those books. Waterstones are currently selling these leather bound editions designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith and they are gorgeous (I’ve seen these in person and the photo doesn’t do it justice). They currently retail at around £12-£20.

For the Harry Potter nerd in your life head to Primark where they are currently selling clothing from Fantastic Beasts (the pyjamas are great, I have a set). Primark is also a good place to get loads of Disney and pop culture t-shirts. Prices can vary.

I always think Pop Funkos are a good thing to give as a gift. I’m currently loving the Labyrinth set . You’re usually better off going into your local Forbidden Planet or Waterstones (they mostly sell Harry Potter funkos) to get these. Don’t buy them on Amazon because it’s mostly re-sellers and you’ll pay two or three times the regular price.

The other thing you could of course get that favourite bookish person is a gift voucher for a bookshop. That way you can buy them books but they will be able to pick exactly what they want instead of you trying to guess what they might like.

Thanks for reading.
