Gift Guide: Non-Book Gifts for Bookish People

Well, friends… here we are. The most wonderful time of the year. It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Okay, I know… I know. It’s early November. We’re not trimming the tree or decking the halls just yet. Mostly. Although I did already snag a few new pieces of cute holiday decor!

And yet… once that calendar flips to November, it’s hard not to think about the Christmas season. There’s movies on TV, music in the mall, and gift ideas in EVERY store! And if you’re like me, you tend to start shopping a little earlier to be prepared.

As in past years, I’m putting together a series of gift guides to help spark some ideas. Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration to kick off (or finish) your shopping! So, without further ado, may I present (there’s that word again) gift guide number one for the year…
