Have Yourself A Very Bookish Christmas

by Noelle
My kind of Christmas tree (source)
Looking for some bookish love from Santa this year? (Well besides the obvious wish for MOAR BOOKZ, that is?)  Never fear,  I've been trolling the internet like it's my job, finding the best book lovers' gifts available to give or receive this holiday season.  Let's get to it.

This hand painted book locket by khara ledonne is sold out in her Etsy store, but restocks in a slightly different design every once in awhile.  Isn't it adorable?

This necklace by Anne Potter is one of my favorite of the Hunger Games mockingjay inspired pieces of jewelry I've seen:

An old Harry Potter fave of mine: "I solemnly swear I am up to no good" bracelet from The Letter G Etsy store

I cackled with glee when I stumbled across this t-shirt homage to the notorious Direwolves (of Game of Thrones fame) at FencingNArchery's Etsy store (also available in Stark):

Another Game of Thrones shirt, this time A King in Every Corner designed by Alexi Solis and Alice X. Zhang:

I wish this t-shirt was available in a print, but a t-shirt will do for now.  Here's The Gift of Knowledge by Jeremy Owen:

I love this Calvin and Hobbes (Calvin and Hobbit?) interpretation of The Hobbit.  Halfling and Wizard by Cool Johnny:

And can't forget good ol' Jane.  Love the silhouette (and the quote!) in this Jane Eyre inspired pullover by Penelope Valencia:
Art Prints
I headed over to Etsy & Society6 to check out the bookish art prints in stock (some are now available to print on tote bags, phone covers, and pillows!)  Here are my faves with a link of where to buy:

The Upside of Being an Introvert by Noelle Stevenson
Library by the Sea by Jeremy Miranda 
(bought for me by my sister! Thanks B!)
Louisa May Alcott quote by Rebecca Borrelli
(unfortunately prints aren't available yet but the original was just too pretty not to include!)
Ideal Bookshelf 353: English Lit by Jane Mount

Jungle Book by David Fleck
A Good Book by Emmy Cicierega
ElectriciTree by Budi Satria Kwan
Also available as a t-shirt here
by BookishCharm on Etsy
Want to charge your iPhone with a little more bookish style?  Rich Neeley Designs has you covered (get it? GET IT?) Good luck deciding which beautiful book to go with!

Those who know my penchant for lists know this book journal at Gone Reading is a no brainer:
Speaking of checking out books, you can transform your own lending library with this personal library kit! The obvious next step is charging late fees for borrowing offenders: 

Last but not least (as in totally expensive)... A whole new meaning of book plates:

And I'm nothing if not thorough, so why not some book themed wrapping paper to wrap all your bookish gifts! What--you weren't buying all of these for yourself, were you? *cough*  Anyways, there are a ton of literary wrapping paper choices at this site, including a fave Louisa May Alcott quote ("She was too fond of books, and it has turned her brain") option.

Which bookish gifts are going on your wishlist this year? What are some great bookish gifts you've given or gotten in the past?

From us here at YAA to you, our lovely readers: Here's to a happy, healthy and bookish holiday season!
