A hinged book locket with a folded up message personalized with their favorite quote (plus two photos if so choose) to keep close to their heart.
A cap they’ll wear to remind anyone who asks them for favors or to (someday!) boring parties — their weekend is *all booked*.
A Pride and Prejudice-inspired sweatshirt in my personal favorite fashion-forward color combo: pink and red for anyone who is very much the Main Character. Lady Catherine didn’t know what a COMPLIMENT she was saying to our Lizzy.
A set of Karen Mabon satin PJs ~covered~ in book covers that’ll whisk them away to lovely dreams in their favorite fictional places.
A box clutch designed to look like just like their favorite book. These gorgeous purses are *so* detailed in their embroidery, I simply cannot stop looking at them. Good luck choosing your fave!
A subscription to Storybook cosmetics monthly palette box — each month they’ll get a different eyeshadow palette that looks like a book (and has colors themed accordingly!) plus a liquid lipstick or gloss. Past versions include Sherlock Holmes and Little Women palettes, as you can see below.
A long-sleeve tee with images of Black women writers like Maya Angelou, Octavia E. Butler, Roxane Gay and more — it’s also available in a tote bag so they can bring home piles of books by these authors from their local library or bookstore.
A bookplate necklace that’ll make a heck of a lot of sense to anyone who carefully writes their name inside all their books before *daring* to lend them out.
A lion-print silk tie for a subtle nod to Patience and Fortitude, the two marble lions who sit outside the New York Public Library…and the two emotions they feel when someone keeps interrupting them mid-chapter.
A pair of socks that at first glance may seem like regular striped dress socks — but when ~checked out~ (get it?) up close are actually little library sign-out cards.
Or a pair of Poe-ka dot socks for anyone who definitely already has a stuffed animal raven somewhere around their house. “Will you ever lighten up, Dolores?” “Nevermore.”
Byredo’s Bibliotheque perfume (with the scent of their post popular Bibliotheque candle) designed to evoke the atmosphere of a library with notes of peach, plum, leather, and vanilla.
A set of book cover enamel pins to place all over their denim jacket or book bag to show their membership in this book club we call life.
A canvas ~book jacket~ (lol!!) specifically designed with a front pocket big enough to whole a book so they never have to leave the house without one. I can absolutely picture Jess Mariano wearing this — can’t you?!
A T-shirt or pullover from their favorite local bookstore (with money actually going to support the stores) so they can rep small bizzes in style.
A reusable shopping bag to make mundane errands feel more like a trip to the library. It’s a heavy-duty option sturdy enough to schlep all the groceries to make some literary-themed recipes…. or to carry all 37 books they just checked out.
