Bookish Gift Guide

Reviews are coming, I promise! I've just been busy with job applications recently, and visiting a friend in Cambridge and family stuff - but there will be reviews. Hopefully one will be up soon, but in the mean time, I thought I would do a bookish gift guide since Christmas is coming up and lot of people will be looking for present ideas. I'm not sponsored by any of the companies/websites I'm mentioning (haha, I wish), these are just things I think would make really great gifts for book lovers! I've already talked about The Beautiful Book Company for bookish gifts in a previous blog post here so I won't mention them again, but I do recommend checking them out! And on we go (all images link to a page where you can purchase the item, and all prices are correct at the time of posting, though may change at a later date, and exclude shipping costs. Also, I know the layout of this post is horrendous, but I am not tech savvy enough to fix it).

    And that's it! There are loads of amazing bits and bobs out there for book lovers such as ourselves (I have my eye on a time turner necklace, but it's so expensive), but these are a few of the ones I thought would make nice gifts, and that I would like to receive! Hopefully you'll have found this list somewhat helpful (I hope so - as messy as this layout is, this post took ages to put together) and it will have given you some ideas as to what to buy for your bookish friends! I wish you the best of luck.
