Thanksgiving is next week. Fall snuck up on me this year, but I'm going to do better with Christmas. My goal is to have everything purchased and wrapped by early December. Fingers crossed. Here are my favorite sites for holiday ideas for the book lover in your life.
1. Café Press has a great selection of literary t's for men, women, and children. They also have ones for movies, TV shows, and pop culture icons.
2. Think Geek has great gadgets and gifts for Harry Potter and Star Wars' fans. It's also home base for gifts for any geek or nerd in your life.
3. The Library of Congress' gift shop has a wide array of book and book lover gifts.
4. Etsy is a great site for fun, literary and author gifts. I've purchased wine charms, bracelets, stickers, and bookmarks from a variety of vendors. I use them for giveaways. Type in "literary gifts," and you'll have your choice of hundreds of vendors.
5. UncommonGoods had lots of stocking stuffers for the reader or writer in your life. Type "reading gifts" in the search box.
6. GoneReading has a great collection of bookworm gifts. My favorite are the book plates. I'm going to have to put them on my list.
7. Shop PBS has some fun ideas. I need to order the Great Gatsby t-shirt and these Scrabble magnets.
8. Amazon has everything. I like the collection of infinity book scarves. I've seen these on Etsy and other sites too.
9. Storiarts has infinity scarves, decorative items, and these great writing gloves from a variety of books and authors.
10. The Writers' Store has gifts for writers, movie makers, and film buffs.
Best wishes with your holiday shopping. My hope is to get the tasky stuff done early, so I can enjoy the season. Wish me luck!
