Gifts for Bibliophiles

Besides actual books and bookstore gift cards, here are some things I've run across lately that I think anyone who loves reading and books would love:

Quote Book Bag from Barnes & Noble. This bag is sturdy. I saw it in the store. and it would hold a lot of weight from books. On the back there is another quote...this one from Erasmus: "When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes." Love it.

Personalized Book Stamp from the Etsy Store, Sweet Paperie . This one doesn't say it but the stamp could be customized to say, "from the library of..." or something similar. I love the clean and simple single letter in the middle.

Mr. Darcy Proposal Mug from the Etsy Store, Brookish Handmade Goods. I'd love to drink my tea out of this mug. The shop has some mugs with other Austen quotes that are also fun. (By the way, the back says..."how ardently I admire and love you.")

Love these ideas!! Especially the Mr. Darcy mug - our book club just finished that book last month!

All of these things remind me so much of you! =0) Reminds me I have to loan you a book I just read. (like you have time for that!) It made me cry, and I LOVE books that actually make me cry!

Ooooo, what great ideas! You should also check out the "gifts" page on It's wonderful - I've got a t-shirt with an austen quote.
