Hello, Book Friends! I hope you all have sufficiently stuffed yourselves with Thanksgiving dinner over the past few weeks. I know I sure did!
It’s been a whirlwind since October, and even though I’m not THAT worried, I’ve been lagging behind on a lot of things because everything is happening at once and I can’t keep up. The good news is that I managed to get a lot of writing done (over 60,000 words) on my novel for NaNoWriMo, and it has finally ended! The bad news is both my sister and her husband are having some serious health issues (for completely different things) and my sister had to be hospitalized. We’re still waiting on the results on some of her tests, but it has to do with her heart and she’s been in there for a couple of days. It’s been a very busy and unsettling time for our household. And………
CHRISTMAS is coming! So, I gathered up a list of of bookish and geeky items, (because us book fanatics are also fans of other things)!
(Also, I made a post about some bookish gifts last year if you need some more ideas. 8 Christmas Gift Ideas For the Reader in Your Life)
Without further ado…
1. Bookish/Geeky Jewelry
How stinkin’ cute is this? I bought this necklace as a birthday gift for my best friend who’s a huge Harry Potter fan, both the books and the movies! I think it’s adorable, and doesn’t stand out too much, so it can go with just about everything! I bought it at Kohl’s on Black Friday for $15. She’s gonna love it!
2. Book Sleeves
I mentioned these in last years post, but they’re still cute and still awesome. What better way to carry a book around to protect it? I love to sew, but I STILL haven’t sat down and made myself some cute little booksleeves. This butterfly fabric that I picked up is super cute, so I might make one out of these. Though there are PLENTY of people who make and sell ones that are ADORABLE that I might end up buying one for myself!
3. Bookish and Fandom Mugs
I also, mentioned these last year, but who couldn’t go wrong with these types of mugs? They’re super cute and fun to collect! Besides, what book lover doesn’t drink either tea, hot cocoa, or coffee (or all three)? That last one is me. My friends got me this Harry Potter one off of Etsy as a gift a few years ago, and I love using it to this day. Just a word of caution, you might want check and see if it’s dishwasher or microwavable safe before gifting!
4. Bookish and Fandom T-shirts and other Clothing
What way for the book lover an geek in your life to celebrate their favorite fandom/book than with an article of clothing? Who knows, they might find some other fans out in public just like them and become fast friends. Or just buy one for yourself. You know you better than anyone.
I have worn Star Wars Shirts, Doctor Who, Marvel, and Disney. Even ones with sarcastic sayings. SO MANY random people have commented on my shirts! I’m not the type to even notice what people are wearing when I’m out, but other people WILL look at your clothing.
It’s not just shirts thought. My friend also got me this awesome Beauty and the Beast scarf, because she knows it’s my favorite Disney movie. (It’s her’s too, which makes it even more fun!) It’s CUTE and goes really well with my gray pea coat. It’s so full of color and awesomeness that it even matches my red coat!
5. Bookish and Fandom Household Items
I love gifting people things that I know they’ll use like CUTE towels. My best friend (the same one that loves Harry Potter) is also a huge Star Wars fan. Over the years I have purchased many Star Wars kitchen items such as measuring cups and glassware, which I bought from Thinkgeek.com. You should check them out if you’re looking for fandom stuff, they’ve got some awesome items.
But THIS year, I bought her this adorable BB-8 handtowel an some cute washcloths from KOHLS. I’m slowly decorating her whole house with Star Wars items, and I don’t think she’s caught on. I don’t think she’d mind though, it’s so awesome!
6. Bookish, Fandom, or Randomly Fun Socks
Over the past few years, FUN socks have become a thing in our family. Especially ones like these REALLY cute kitten ones! We have two cats and these are just a fun stocking stuffer that everyone will have a good laugh over. I know they’ll wear them too. Besides, they would also make such fun bookstagram photos too! 🙂
And there you have it, my list of Christmas Ideas for the Book Lover/Fandom Geek in your Life! 🙂 As, always, thanks for reading!
