    The book lover’s tee is so cute. Maybe I’ll leave this web page open for my husband to see; after all, Valentine’s Day is coming up and I want some bookish presents lol.

  2. Megan Monell

    Oh My Gosh, I need one of everything!!! How awesome! I love the necklace from Lemony Snickett! I must share all of these. =)

    Love this post! Seriously, you can’t go wrong with book related merchandise – at least if you’re considering buying me a gift ;). Love that last Lemony Snicket necklace. I also loved those Jane Austen scarves you had for Christmas. It’s still cold here so they would make great Valentines Day gifts.

    These are so lovely! I think my favorite is the Shadow & Bone-inspired necklace, even though I have yet to read it!

  5. Lottie Eve

    I can’t believe I missed this post! Beautiful gitfs :) My favorite is the Lemony Snicket necklace! Valentine’s Day is such a wonderful holiday!

  6. Jill

    Yeah, so these are basically the cutest things ever. I adore Etsy, but sometimes get lost when trying to find fun bookish stuff, so thank you so much for this post! I think I might buy the “boys are better in books” pin.

    Oooooh… those are some awesome gifts :) I think I might have to print out this post and leave it out as a hint!

    Well. I never said no to a book before, especially one with such a lovely lovely bookplate.

    Also. Wendy. I am enamoured with your Valentine’s graphic *staaaaaares*

  9. Liza

    This is without a doubt my favorite post. I love the book locket idea. I saw the creator had a variety of books and movies. This is such a great gift idea for my fangirl friends.

  10. Rachelia G

    Love these, but especially the last one!!

    My favorite bookish gift I have given is an usual one — a book chair/stand I was given as a graduation present. It honestly was the most useful gift ever (especially in university) & I loved it. I used it so often. Unfortunately, while studying abroad it was stolen from my suitcase & I’m looking to find another one :(

  11. Shirley

    Awwww I love these! Especially the pin that says ‘Boys in books are just better’. THAT IS SO TRUE!!! Oh, and the Shadow and Bone necklace is GORGEOUS<3 Thanks for sharing, Wendy!

  12. Blythe Harris

    SHADOW AND BONE NECKLACE? Need need want need need gimme. Must have that! And I absolutely love the book t-shirt preceding it. Very cute! I also need to read The Fault in Our Stars. It seems everyone has read that (and loved it), but me. Great post, Wendy!

    But really I’m thinking I need to buy the Morozova necklace.

  13. Book Whales

    OH la la .. I want them all for myself LOL :D My mom would love the necklace. WOW! Thanks for sharing, Wendy.


  14. Candace

    Oh I love this! I love the first locket, the Shadow and Bone necklace and the Lemony Snicket necklace. I love the tee too. The last one is more in our price range though. I’ll have to mention it to the hubby. :)

  15. Neyra

    I love lemony snicket’s necklace, and renesmee’s locket, and shadow and bone’s necklace… I WANT! O.O lol thanks for sharing Wendy‚ô•

    So much gorgeousness! I’ll have to send my valentine over here for some inspiration :) The Shadow and Bone necklace is very cool and I just love the vintage book plates.
    Looking forward to more of your bookish valentines celebration next week!

  17. Karen

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower quit reminds me of one of my favorites.

    You can change people – only your reaction to them.

    Gorgeous gift ideas.

  18. Keertana

    Now I wish I was in a relationship so someone could buy these for me! I love pins so much, and it’s a cheap price, so maybe I’ll just have to buy that myself. I also just LOVE that S&B necklace…gorgeous! :) Love this post, Wendy! :D

  19. Amy

    Those are all really great gift ideas! I love the Shadow and Bone necklace that’s so awesome!!

  20. Aa'Ishah

    Ooh, I especially love the John Green locket, the ‘Boys in books are just better’ pin and the Lemony Snicket necklace! And also the Renesmee necklace…seriously, these are all just too adorable. *sighs wistfully* Thanks for sharing! :)

  21. Lark

    These are great! Not only would any of them make wonderful gifts for a fan, but they offer ideas for those who want to feature their own favorite book in a creative work of art.

  22. LisaFicTalk

    I reaaaaally like the Anne of Green Gables card. It’s so lovely. Sigh. :D
    Also loving the “boys in books are just better” pin!

    great post, Wendy!

  23. Annabelle Marie Veronica

    Ohhhh. Cutest list of gifts ever. I love, love, love the Shadow and Bone necklace, but I won’t buy it because I sincerely doubt it would look good on me. But I know tons of people who could pull this off! I love the Perks and TFIOS necklaces especially too. Totally forwarding this to my boyfriend.

  24. Sam

    These are brilliant! I’ve been lusting after that Shadow and Bone Morozova necklace for a while now. I think I may need to treat myself soon. ;) I love that Lemony Snicket locket, too. Great quote!

  25. Jasprit

    Aww this is such an adorable post Wendy! I especially love the Lemony Snicket necklace and Boys in Books are just better pin! I think I definitely need both of those! Thanks for sharing these gifts with us, I’ll definitely be looking forward to your upcoming guest posts! :)

  26. Bookworm1858

    Oh those book plates are gorgeous! I tend to just stick to chocolate for Valentine’s Day but maybe some of the people in my life would want to get me book plates? I’ll suggest it to them :)

  27. starryeyedjen

    Oh, Wendy, I always love your bookish gift posts! Now, how to ensure that my hubby stumbles across your site and discovers that I want all the things? :P I especially love the Shadow & Bone necklace and the vintage bookplates!

  28. Mary @ BookSwarm

    I love that”Boys in books are just better” button! Oh, and that beautiful John Green locket. I lust after cute, bookish things. Thank goodness for Etsy, right?
