Now that Easter is over, we can concentrate on the next holiday: Mother’s Day. The day that we give thanks and show love and appreciation who literally went through hours of painful labor just to give birth to us. And if your mother loves books (just like mine does) but can be picky, you may have a hard time picking that perfect gift for her. So here’s a list of a few great gift ideas that will keep you from last-minute shopping and also on a budget:
1. Bamboo Bathtub Caddy
Perfect for the mother who wants to relax from a tiring day with a good book and a glass of wine. Combine that with a hot bath and you got yourself a relaxing evening! (Find at GoneReading.com)
2. Old Book Scented Candle
What’s could be better than feeling the pages through you fingers? How about smelling it? (Find on Etsy)
3. Literary Teas
For that tea lover in your life. Based their blends on different literary authors. (Find at LiteraryTea Co.)
4. Adagio Teas Fandom Signature Blends.
Similar to LiteraryTea Co. but includes all fandom known to man. It gives you more of a variation that doesn’t necessarily include book themes. (Find at Adagio Teas)
5. Book Map
I have this in my home! It is street map, based off from London, made up from the titles of over 600 titles, including fictional areas and neighborhoods from history’s favorite books. (Find it at Dorothy)
6. Literary Mugs
Because you need that tea to go in somewhere! The Unemployed Philosophers Guild is a great store that has an extensive collection of literary mugs, including an Alice in Wonderland mug when you pour hot water in, the Cheshire cat disappears.
Litographs is a great website where it takes the text of your favorite book and creates beautiful illustrations on posters, t-shirts, and tote bags. A great present for a mother who wants to show off her favorite book.
8. Kindle Case Book Covers
Some people are screaming out “No! No e-readers!” But there are some who prefer to read e-books. So why not combine new technology and your love of the physical with these beautiful handmade kindle covers? (Find on Etsy)
9. Book Scarves
Etsy has many great items for book lovers including this book Alice in Wonderland Book Scarf made by the store, Storiarts.
10. A book! What else?
