Etsy Favourites for Booklovers

March 3, 2017


You’ll already know from reading this blog that I love a good book. This last year I’ve made the time to read again and it’s reminded me how much I love books being a part of my life. Along with that comes little obsessions for all things bookish. I’ve recently treated myself to some book themed prints and candles and came across a whole world of literary loveliness. I usually head to Etsy for things like this as they have a tendency to produce geekier gifts which I always like. You must check out Fable and Black – I would easily buy up their whole their shop and Bookwormcandlescraft who I bought some cute book themed candles from.

I found so much I loved that I had to share some of them – if you’re looking for a treat for a booklover then you must check some of these out. 

Night Circus Print / Book Lover Pencils / Book Sleeve

Big Books Sticker / Jane Eyre Necklace / Blind Book Date

Neil Gaiman Quote Card / Read Books Enamel Pin / Rather Be Reading Tote

A few of my favourites from here – the book sleeve! I had no idea this was even a thing but it makes total sense. It’s a little pouch to put your book in when you’re carrying it around in your bag, it stops the pages from getting damaged and looks really cute too. I spotted the Blind Book Date and had to include it – I’ve seen this online somewhere before but had no idea you could get them on Etsy. It’s basically a surprise pre-loved book, you put down a genre you want to try and they send you out a random book, as well as your choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. I love this idea! Lastly, I spent way too long searching for enamel pin badges after reading Morgana’s post over on Coffee Work Sleep Repeat about her love of them, she shared a great book one and I started looking for some more. It’s hard to pick out a favourite but this one sums me up perfectly – ‘Drink Tea and Read Books’.

Little Women Quote / Court of Mist & Fury Candle / Diagon Alley Papercut Print

Book Washi Tape / Readers Gonna Read T Shirt/ Library Card Notebook

Second Hand Books Scented Candle /Ex Libris Book Stamp / Literature Ladies Enamel Pin

I love everything about the Little Women quote at the top; it says, ‘I’m not afraid of storms for I am learning to sail my ship’. I think this will be my next buy for our picture ledges, we have a few book quotes up there already but I like to refresh it. I am also in desperately want the book washi tape, it would be perfect for my bullet journal. I thought it is also be a great way to decorate parcels if you’re passing books on. I’ve only just realised that book themed candles are a thing – I ordered some of the Court of Mist & Fury ones (update, they’ve arrived and are beautiful – see picture below) but I also love the look of the jar ones from The Candle Codex. I popped the second hand books scented one on here because who doesn’t love the smell of books?! They also had a Great Hall, Harry Potter one and a Smaug one!  

Any of these catch your eye? What do you love to shop for on Etsy?

    Hayley I saw your candles on instagram. I have never seen anything like that before, and they are just gorgeous. I can just imagine lighting them and curling up with a good book. Great idea to share all your little finds on the internet x

      Oh it’s so good Gail, you should definitely have a look. I find it quite hard to browse on my phone or iPad though, so much easier on a computer! I’m trying to restrain myself on there 😉 xx
