Christmas Gifts for Book Lovers

It's a month until Christmas! Waheeeyy! I thought I would drop subtle hints to the world and let them know what I think are ideal presents for a book lover. They're very pretty.

Scrabble Cushions

I - LOVE - THESE. They come in sets of words for a slightly discounted price, but I would just buy single letters and throw them around: much more fun.£17.50 is a bit of a rip off, but I'd guess these are easy to make with some iron on sheets and some cheap fabric. 

 Literary T-shirts
Art Meets Matter

Art Meets Matter are the guys who do the Penguin mugs, pencils and tea towels. These tees were first shown off at the Hay festival. Book lovers love showing off their literary superiority. If they've not got a book in their hand, they have to be talking about one. If I was my friend, I'd buy me one of these to shut me up.

Hans Christian Anderson, Fairy Tales.
Luxury edition, Penguin

You know what, I don't even like fairy tales that much. But this book is beeeeauuuutiful. Penguin do some other nice special editions either - get the more masculine the very military blue edition of the Three Musketeers. 

The Literary Map of Britain

This is the best priced thing I've included on this list and I love it so much I've just ordered it for myself. Notice the curious black hole near London: very odd. It's brilliant: beautiful, quirky, informative, makes you look clever. I wish they'd not put William Wordsworth across the Lake District. I know he's the most famous person from there, but I really do just hate him. Stupid old codger.
