Mother’s Day is just over a month away. Last year, I suggested a host of books to give the book loving mother in your life. Today, however, I’m going a different route to suggest various items that any fan of books would LOVE. So instead of new book — or maybe in addition to a new book — consider giving these great gifts to mom. (Simply click on the image to find out where to purchase.)
1. Book Lover Clothing
Love this for its subtlety, double meaning, as well as possible irony. If you’re buying for me, I’ll take a medium.
Not sure if the book lover in your life would rather stay home and read on a Friday night, but if that’s the case, then this is a perfect book for her!
2. Get your book crafty on. . .
Here’s a Youtube video for a quick and easy bookmark that clearly denotes Book Lover. Try a little origami gift if you want or need to go inexpensive.
These super simple book marks might require a quick trip to the used book store, but what a unique idea for a bookmark.
3. Book Inspired Jewelry
There are such great items available with favorite book quotes. If she is truly a book lover, there will be certain quotes she will never tire of reading. In fact, they inspire her and so will this jewelry.
This one is for the Louisa May Alcott fans.
This pendant is such fun! The best part is there is a ton of Jane Austen-inspired pieces that any book-freak would love.
4. Everyday Items
For a book enthusiast there’s nothing much better than the smell that emanates from a book store. Try out these book-inspired candle scents. There’s even an scent for the trashy-romance novel.
Wanna spice things up for the mother of your children? Then try out this coffee mug!
