Y’all, we have been working on the Smart Bitches Gift Guide all year long. We have a Slack channel devoted just to gift ideas, and it is busy because everyone on the internet is creative and brilliant, and all the awesome gives me so much joy, I can’t even. Only odding is possible.
I can hear you snarling or maybe squeaking that it’s only October 26! Halloween hasn’t happened yet! I know. It’s true. It’s a bit early. But only because we have TOO MUCH EXCELLENT STUFF to share, and it helps to be prepared, right? Right! You want to leave time for shipping if items are some distance away, and hey, shopping a little early means less stress later!
Grab hold of your wish list and your shopping list: it’s 2016 Smart Bitches Gift Guide time.
Looking for a lovely, small, charming gift for friends, co-workers, or people who make your day better, like librarians? Ideal Bookshelf has pins.
And prints! There’s art for the walls like whoa.
And if you know a grammar fan or copy editor, gifting has been managed:
The prints are around $34 unframed. And if you don’t see one that’s ideal for you, you can commission your own Custom Ideal Bookshelf print or painting, and specify the books that define you or someone you love. Custom items start at $40. What a cool gift, huh?
And you can visit a few stores around the US to see other items, too!
If the book pins idea was rocking your world like it was mine, here are some other options for all your gifting needs. Literary Emporium on Etsy has several bookish pins, including this one, which makes me smile every time I see it:
And this is so adorable I might need to go lie down: Winged World, a store of prints of custom illustrations painted onto old library card catalog cards for beloved books.
Socks, by Beverly Cleary anyone?
How about Narnia?
Elyse loves this Etsy store, Jezebel Charms, which offers “literary gifts for book lovers, readers and writers.”
I’ll be posting new Smart Bitches Gift Guides every Wednesday, so if you have ideas, suggestions, or requests, please email me or comment below! Happy holiday shopping!
