Why I Love Wednesdays... Bookish Gifts

Reflections of a Bookaholic

I am returning with my new feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Bookish Gifts  Note:  You don't have to have given or received them.  Picking a gift that would be good to give or receive in theory works as well :)

Why I Love...Bookish Gifts


So...graduation is a week and a half away.  It's not like I'm expecting gifts or anything.  But you know...if I were to get a few, I think bookish gifts would make me smile.  Aside from the go-to Amazon gift card (which is actually not a bookish gift for me because I tend to buy things for my kitchen... and my hair from amazon).  I've found some amazing bookish gifts that I would be excited to give and receive.

It's an ipad cover!!
It goes on your head!!  Before you laugh, you should know that I have one of these.  One of my favorite gifts from my dad (after the iPad of course).   Reading hands free :)

  1. I love the iPad cover. And while the light is funny, I think it's pretty awesome and will probably be looking in to getting one soon.

  3. I love bookish gifts!

    Right now I am all about bookmarks that fit the book :) I love finding cute little unique bookmarks that I can send a long with books that I put in my RIPI giveaways.

    Also I love T-Shirts with bookish sayings on them!

    I love the tote bag (those are something I collect and adore)!

    1. I always lose bookmarks so I never think to really look for them. Getting them to match the book sounds fun though. Kind of like a challenge.

  7. I love that tote! I want it! Lol. I look bookish gifts. I have a tote that has a quote "“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”

  8. Very cool gift ideas, Alexis! I actually have the second one! Not the iPad case, but I have the little black book for my phone and for my Kindle. Might have to get the matching one for my iPad sometime. I couldn't tell fr the source if it was the same people (but I hope it was cu it's exact) but I bought mine on Etsy. :)

    1. No one really buys me bookish gifts. Maybe that's why I'm so fascinated.

  11. I have a head torch just like that, it's ideal for reading at night while camping.

    1. It is ideal for hands free. I really can't focus on my reading unless it is hands free.
