Valentine’s Day for Book Lovers

We’ve never been the couple to celebrate Valentines Day, but for some reason, I love making these ‘wish lists’. So, if you’re looking for gift ideas for the book-lover in your life here are a few that have made it to the top of my ‘wish list’!

These enamel pins by Book Riot! There are some wonderful Edgar Allan Poe ones, but I found this set particularly endearing.

Janemount on Etsy has a beautiful collection of bookish pins too (including a seven Harry Potter ones!).

When I was in Omaha to see Stephen King speak I finally found a store that sold Frostbeard candles. I’ve been curious if they smell as good as it sounds like they do, and the answer is in the affirmative. They are divine and there are so many unique scents to choose from. This is one of my favorites!

I’ve seen the picture of stair treads painted with books spines floating around Pinterest for ages now. We all have, it’s a popular one. It’s one of those DIY’s I’ve always wanted to try out, but the amount of time it would take to piece it all together always forces that project to the back burner. Horse Feather Decals on Etsy has solved that problem though. This is such a unique gift idea!

The Ohlala sells these dreamy literary scarves! I’ll take one of each, please!

Heath and Harebell knows the way to every book-lover’s heart; literary chocolate for the win!

 

 

Valentine’s Day Wish List

Mr. T. and I promised each other we would skip the Valentine’s Day gifts this year as we’re heading out on a little holiday here shortly.  We aren’t usually ‘big spenders’ on holidays, but instead spend our savings on groceries we turn into a yummy meal together.  So, in light of us foregoing gifts this year, I did some online ‘shopping’ instead!  Here are some things I would love to give or receive next Valentine’s day 🙂

Cherylsorg

I’m pretty sure this is one of the neatest hand-crafted things I have seen in a long time.  It is a fingerprint articulated by book spines.  Brilliant!

You can order them from Cheryl Sorg on Etsy here.

MaidenVoyageClothing

*Sigh* Maiden Voyage.  I can’t sing the praises of this shop loud enough!  Their clothing is so much fun.  Their shirts are comfortable, beautifully creative, and completely unique.  Their customer service is exception and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for something ‘different’ to add to their wardrobe!

This specific shirt definitely isn’t Valentine’s themed… unless your cat is your valentine, which is totally cool.

You can check out Maiden Voyage Clothing here.

MedBeachStones

So stinkin’ cute!  My heart would melt into a big steaming puddle if someone gave this to me!

You can find it in Med Beach Stone’s shop on Etsy here!

PageFiftyFive

I told Mr. T. that if we were buying cards for each other this year, I would buy this one for him.

Page Fifty Five has countless witty cards in their Etsy shop here.

PigeonEditions

I LOVE this print and feel it’s necessary that it hang in my office.  I’m going to have to buy myself a gift, because I can’t pass up this beautiful print!

Pigeon Editions has a lot of fun ‘collection’ style prints on Etsy here!  Better yet, their prints are all buy 2 get 1 free!

RappysGoodies

I ordered some of these Harry Potter bookmarks for Christmas gifts.  I may, or may not have ordered a few for myself as well.

If you fell in love with them too, you can find them in Rappys Goodies shop on Etsy here.

ThatsSewEllie

At some point in time, I’m making this for Mr. T.  He will look at, shake his head, and likely question why he married me.  I’ll be proud of my work and insist he display it at work.  He’s a pretty awesome husband.

The pattern for this purrfect gift can be found in That’s Sew Ellie’s Etsy shop here.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
