A hinged book locket with a folded up message personalized with their favorite quote (plus two photos if so choose) to keep close to their heart.
A cap they’ll wear to remind anyone who asks them for favors or to (someday!) boring parties — their weekend is *all booked*.
A Pride and Prejudice-inspired sweatshirt in my personal favorite fashion-forward color combo: pink and red for anyone who is very much the Main Character. Lady Catherine didn’t know what a COMPLIMENT she was saying to our Lizzy.
A set of Karen Mabon satin PJs ~covered~ in book covers that’ll whisk them away to lovely dreams in their favorite fictional places.
A box clutch designed to look like just like their favorite book. These gorgeous purses are *so* detailed in their embroidery, I simply cannot stop looking at them. Good luck choosing your fave!
Or an original Olympia Le-Tan Le Petit Prince book clutch if you’re…not on a budget at all. Lucky them!
A subscription to Storybook cosmetics monthly palette box — each month they’ll get a different eyeshadow palette that looks like a book (and has colors themed accordingly!) plus a liquid lipstick or gloss. Past versions include Sherlock Holmes and Little Women palettes, as you can see below.
A long-sleeve tee with images of Black women writers like Maya Angelou, Octavia E. Butler, Roxane Gay and more — it’s also available in a tote bag so they can bring home piles of books by these authors from their local library or bookstore.
A pair of distressed gold tone quotation mark stud earrings for anyone who is constantly repeating their favorite lines from books.
A bookplate necklace that’ll make a heck of a lot of sense to anyone who carefully writes their name inside all their books before *daring* to lend them out.
A lion-print silk tie for a subtle nod to Patience and Fortitude, the two marble lions who sit outside the New York Public Library…and the two emotions they feel when someone keeps interrupting them mid-chapter.
A pair of socks that at first glance may seem like regular striped dress socks — but when ~checked out~ (get it?) up close are actually little library sign-out cards.
Or a pair of Poe-ka dot socks for anyone who definitely already has a stuffed animal raven somewhere around their house. “Will you ever lighten up, Dolores?” “Nevermore.”
A set of book cover enamel pins to place all over their denim jacket or book bag to show their membership in this book club we call life.
A canvas ~book jacket~ (lol!!) specifically designed with a front pocket big enough to whole a book so they never have to leave the house without one. I can absolutely picture Jess Mariano wearing this — can’t you?!
A Book Brothers sweatshirt to make any literary pun lover chuckle — and make passers by on the street do a double take.
A T-shirt or pullover from their favorite local bookstore (with money actually going to support the stores) so they can rep small bizzes in style.
A reusable shopping bag to make mundane errands feel more like a trip to the library. It’s a heavy-duty option sturdy enough to schlep all the groceries to make some literary-themed recipes…. or to carry all 37 books they just checked out.
