Feature Friday: Favorite Bookish Stocking Stuffers

As far as gift-giving is concerned, you may have heard the phrase that it's best to get for others "something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read."  That phrase is something I like to keep in mind when selecting gifts for loved ones.  Particularly the "something to read" part.  

While I love giving books as gifts, there are many, many fabulous book-inspired things out there that could definitely work as stocking stuffers.  Do you have a bookish loved one?  Consider one of these gifts this holiday season:

Shakespearean Lip Balm Set
Both a conversation starter and a moisturizer.  Double win.

HOGWARTS HOUSE SET - Harry Potter bookmark range.
I seriously hope these are in my stocking this year.

I actually own this shirt in navy.  It's awesome.

Clever "Harry Potter" Golden Snitch 99 Problems Shirt for Potterheads
You simply can't go wrong with a Potter inspired shirt.

Striped Angle Geometry Bookend
For the more sophisticated bookish friend, marble.

If I were a librarian, I would wear this shirt Every. Single. Day.

Books can make even the longest of board games fun.

Jonah Wood Carved Whale Book Ends
Give this with a worn copy of Moby-Dick.

Soooo cuteeee, can someone make these for me??
These ornaments are killing me. Adorable.

word nerd canvas book tote bag
Lately I've been wishing I had a tote specifically for my library books to take back and forth from the library.  (Walking from the library to the car while balancing a diaper bag, a wiggly toddler, and a precariously stacked pile of freshly checked out library books gives me great amounts of stress on a weekly basis.)  This tote would do nicely, if I do say so myself. would this one...

Library Card: Natural
...or this one.  (That whole line up of bookish totes from Out Of Print is pretty awesome, actually.)

What would you add to my list?

    A Recent Blog Post: Does the Guilt Crush You? @ My Little Corner For Books (Involves hiccuping chihuahuas, awesomeness/weirdness depending on how you look at it and guilty confessions about DNF-ing books! XD)
