The 101 Books Christmas Gift Guide
Christmas is two weeks from today. Did you read that….Christmas is two weeks from today!
OH CRAP. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO BUY? Who knew Christmas actually came on December 25 this year?
But don’t despair. 101 Books has some gift suggestions for you today, at least gift suggestions for the book lovers in your life.
So if you’re buying for any of these people, here are my suggestions:
For The Book Hipster
You’ve got to go with the Charles Dickens scarf, right? What literary hipster wouldn’t love this? It has the perfect balance of style and pretentiousness.
Also available, the Alan Ginsberg brooch. When book hipsters dream, they dream of Alan Ginsberg brooches.
Mom loves nice jewelry, and she just loves Jane Austen. So how about a set of Elizabeth and Darcy earrings!
Look! It’s a set of Edgar Allen Poe cufflinks! With these bad boys, Dad will impress all the men at the board meeting.
Your baby needs two gifts because the earlier you can brainwash them into believing that they’ll die early if they don’t read, then the better off they’ll be.
Let’s start with a literary rubber ducky. How cute!
And don’t you know your little one will be the star of his or her daycare when wearing this David Copperfield onesy?
For Younger Kid
Oh my. I would pay lots of dollars to watch this puppet show. It’s a set of Dickens, Shakespeare, Woolf, and Tolstoy finger puppets!
And then there’s this awesome Charles Dickens cuddly toy because everyone needs a little cuddle time with Chuck Dickens. Sign me up!
For Older Kid
With this map of English literature, convince your 12-year-old that England is the coolest place on Earth for books. Then, maybe they’ll move there and stay there when they turn 18!
For Uber Book Geeks
For the hardest core of the hard core, including myself, these are cool. The guys at Postertext actually sent me a calendar, and it’s great.
They also turn complete text of famous novels into posters, like this one of The Great Gatsby.
Along the same lines, but in t-shirt form, is Litographs. They’ve printed the entire text of famous novels and put them on t-shirts. The text is so small it reminds me of one of my cheat sheets from high school. I mean, one of my friend’s cheat sheets from high school.
Here’s a t-shirt based with the complete text of Jane Eyre. What book geek wouldn’t love this?
For Your Bestie
You know what your bestie wants, right? It’s an East Egg and West Egg “bestie necklace!” Awww, you guys! How precious!
For The Smoker In Your Life
For the cigarette smoker in your life who doesn’t care that they are sucking death down their throat, here’s a cool set of banned book matches.
For Your Lover
You know your lover loves perfume. All lovers love perfume. So she’ll love this glamorous paperback scent. Also available: paperback bubble bath and paperback body oil.
For The Coffee Addict
An assortment of mugs to display your grammar abilities while enjoying your morning cup of joe.
For The Librarian
This is just cool. Please buy me one, even though I’m not a librarian. It’s a set of 30 library cards from the Library of Congress.
Grandma always gets upset when you put your drink on her end tables, so get her this awesome set of literary coasters!
For Your Drunk Uncle
For the alcoholic in your life, here’s a hollowed book that will hide a flask (flask included). Fancy.
Now, you’re ready for a literary Christmas!
If you buy any of this stuff, let me know. I’d love to see how your hipster friend looks in the Alan Ginsberg brooch.
