What Makes It Awesome

Candles that smell like new paperbacks, socks that carry library card prints or ' Life of Chai' coasters, Booksom's got the coolest, book-inspired merchandise. 

Bibliophiles, this online store will be your delight. Take one look at their products and you'd want to spend your entire salary on their home decor goods and accessories.

We particularly have a soft spot for their candles section. They've got everything from Kafka-inspired Kaffe candles with coffee and chocolate brownie aroma (since his books were inspired by the cafe culture) to Potter's Pumpkin Juice candles (starting at INR 399). We love that they've put thought into creating candles that will instantly help you relate to a particular literary work. For instance, isn't it adorable that they've got one inspired by Malgudi Days that has an early morning scent of forests and rivers, and can transport you to Swami's village?

We also saw the cutest socks on Booksom with a yellowing library card print (INR 349)! Book lamps (one that lights up when you open the book), book-shaped coasters (check out The Ministry of Cupmost Happiness one), soaps, and music boxes are some other things you can find on his website. 

Book-lovers who have a thing for jewellery should definitely check out Booksom's range of stunning pendants. They've got a bunch of timeless options with quotes like 'For you, a thousand times over' or Atticus' 'I'm tired of their stories, let's write our own'. 

Also, how cool are this e-store's doormats?! Choose from options like 'Alohomora', 'I Like It Dirty' and the 'fictitious characters inside' disclamer. 

What Could Be Better

We'd have loved it if they offered more variety in jewellery. At the moment, they only have three options but the options they do have are amazing. 


They also offer 10% off to anyone who places their order for the first time. So, go!
