You do know it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday, don’t you? And you did promise yourself you wouldn’t leave it until the last minute to get a gift this year, didn’t you? Okay. Good. Then, ditch the grocery store flowers and chocolates and check out these very cool book-related gifts for Mumsy.
I love these book pendants. Snoop around Etsy.com for crafters who will make a pendant in Mom’s style using the cover of her favorite book. You can also find simple or ornate gold and silver book pendants if that’s more her taste.
That New Book Smell
For reasons I’ll never understand, the whole “Scratch and Sniff” phenomenon never quite took off. Still, you can send Mom on a sensory trip into her favorite classic with these Literary Candles. Maybe she’d enjoy the scent of the gardens at Pemberley, or perhaps she’d prefer tea and books at 221B Baker Street. If your mom’s into zombie novels or medical thrillers, you might want to rethink this one.
Book crates have taken the subscription world by storm. Here’s one that is perfect for a long-lasting gift. Once Upon a Book Club delivers a box with a new release and three hand-wrapped story-related gifts to be opened at specific pages in the book.
Personal Library Must-Have
Bookplates are so last century (or maybe the century before last), but a stylish desktop embosser could make Mom a bit more willing to lend out her favorites.
Envy of her Book Club
Due to a series of unfortunate events, I really need new plates. I’m so tempted to search out plate-sized versions of this book platter. Your mother would be the envy of her book club with this.
