Back in March I wrote a post about The Literary Gift Company and some of the wonderful things they sell. As we are approaching Christmas - or at least, the Christmas shopping season - I thought I'd help you out again with five more ideas of what to get the special writer in your life. [I'm not one to drop hints but, following my last post, one of my lovely blogging friends did send me one of the gifts I mentioned, and I received another couple for my birthday. Just sayin'.]
I've tried to pick five different websites this time - though many of the gifts can be found on many of the websites and each site is worth a good long browse! With each, I've also included another gift found on the same site. Any of these tickle your fancy?
Not On The High Street. Also available: 642 Things to Write About Journal (notebook full of great writing prompts). £17 by Deservedly So.
The Literary Gift Company. Also available: adult and children's book cover t-shirts, such as this Charlotte's Web one. £19.95.
Writer's Gifts. Also available: Shakespeare's Insults A5 notebook (because what says Christmas more than a book covered in quotations such as, "The tartness of his face sours ripe grapes"?) £4.50.
Literary Emporium. (This is one of an extensive set of necklaces each with a quotation from authors as varied as Edward Lear, Mary Shelley, Emily Bronte, Wordsworth, Lewis Carroll.... and many more.) Also available: iPhone case with JRR Tolkien quotation, "Not all those who wander are lost". £14.
Book-Ish. Also available: Penguin Pencil Box (with pencils). £5.99.
I can't help feeling that I'd never want to use the tea bags - far too pretty!ReplyDelete
You could make bunting out of them instead. Much better in my opinion!Delete
This is a good post and I shall now steal itReplyDelete
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Somebody said that sometime. Or something.Delete
Trouble with posts like this is the amount of coveting that goes on in the making of it. I found about 20 things I wanted. At least.
Brilliant! And begging for a follow-up post from you about literary themed presents we'd like to see.ReplyDelete
You can start then, Derek... What do you want to see?Delete
Hmmm... maybe a functional gift for me would be software that shouted at me when I consistently spelled a word wrong. "Oi! Pea brain! There's only one C in recommendation!" Though, on the whole, I prefer pretty jewellery.
You've just made my Christmas shopping a lot easier!ReplyDelete
Glad to oblige!Delete
I would love all of these! I'm sure most of my fellow book worm friends will agree. My best friend is a big tea drinker so I know she'd love the novel teas. I think I'll get that for her along with a pair of funny animal slippers for adults...she'll get a kick out of those!ReplyDelete
You'll have to let me know what she thinks! Love the slippers - particularly the giraffes!Delete
