Bookish Christmas Gift Guide

Are you bored of getting that pesky little bookworm in your life a Waterstones gift card every year for Christmas? Never fear, for Amber is here!...Yep. Here's a bookish gift guide I put together a few days ago featuring some things you might not have thought of.

The Chocolate Library - £13.49 - Buy

I know, I know; it looks like a box set of books, but...the books are actually chocolate bars. Is your mind blown? Mine is.  I really, really need this chocolate library. Feel free to get me one. Thank you in advance.

Bookish Posters - £6.50 - Buy

Aren't these awesome? The first is a quote by Hank Green, the second (my favourite) is a quote by John Green, and the third is a quote from The Fault in Our Stars. Mm, pretty typography. Funnily enough, I got the third poster for Christmas last year, and I can tell you that, somehow, it's even more beautiful in real life.

Doodled Notebook - £12 - Buy

All bookworms love writing as well as reading, so this is a pretty safe bet when it comes to buying presents. Plus, it's hand-painted! Doesn't it look like the perfect place to keep all your thoughts and ideas?

"Go away, I'm reading" mug - £9.95 - Buy
Self explanatory. It's £9.95. Off you go.

Crap Pad - £4.50 - Buy
I'm sorry, I just had to include this - it made me laugh out loud. Bookworms tend to have endless to-do lists, because we spend a lot of time... well, reading. I recently discovered this website and I am actually in love with their notepads. They have a huuuuge range so even if you don't like the one I decided to include in this post, I definitely recommend checking out the rest. Plus, every bookworm likes stationery. Especially when it's quirky. 

And, of course, I couldn't finish off this post without including a few book recommendations. Christmas isn't Christmas without books! 

What are you hoping for this year?
