7 Gifts Your Bookworm Friend Will Absolutely Love
A Book Subscription From Champaca
No reader in this country is immune to the charms of Champaca. This Bangalore-based cafe cum bookstore has a brilliant collection of books and their book subscription is quite awesome. They've got Three-Month, Six-Month, Twelve Month, and Champaca-Advanced Member subscription. Each subscription has different things to offer — from books and postcards to exclusive event invites and discounts. It's a present any reader will cherish!
Obviously, that ace reader will need a bookmark, and what's better than this pretty dreamcatcher bookmark? Done up with blue feathers, this bookmark has a golden-toned leaf too. We're loving how it can be used as a bedside accessory as well as a bookmark.
Bookworm Organic Cotton T-Shirt
This organic cotton T-shirt from Yo Aatma screams comfort and it comes in so many colours. The graphic on the T-shirt has a bookshelf with a girl on a ladder. We're loving the details of the moonlight and books on the floor. The words Stairway To Heaven is an apt fit. We're sure your book nerd friend will appreciate this T-shirt. Get it already?
Touted as the world's best cocktail book for all literary junkies, Tequila Mockingbird by Tim Federle is a gift your friend will love. We assure you! Drinks such as Love in the Time of Kahlua, Romeo and Julep, A Rum of One's Own, etc. are enough to catch one's attention. Entertaining and a conversation starter at parties, this one's a catch. Get it and ask that friend to host a house party.
Genius Writers (Genius Playing Cards)
OMG, can you imagine a set of playing cards with the faces of Haruki Murakami, Margaret Atwood, Jack Kerouac? This Genius Writers Playing Cards set has all of that. We're loving how the cards carry genres too, for instance, postmodern, contemporary, mid-century, etc. If your reader friend has book clubs or hosts literary meet-ups, these playing cards can come handy. Just make sure they keep it safe although you don't have to explicitly say that to a reader friend!
Palms Paradise Book Ends
Your reader friend will surely have bookshelves but they have stray books lying around everywhere. Surely you might have noticed that on their table and these bookends from Chumbak will serve their purpose. Perfect for stacking more than four to five (psst. it can hold 10 books together too) books, its palm trees give us beachy vibes. Plus, it's so Instagram-worthy.
Advantus Locket Book by Tim Holtz Idea-ology
Any bookworm will treasure this handmade piece by Tim Holtz. For the uninitiated, Tim is a maker of eclectic vintage products and is known for his handmade lockets, stencils, wood-mounted stamps, collage frames, vignette frames, and so much more. This locket book has a vintage nickel finish and no matter what the outfit is, this one can lend a moody look to it.
