All those ready for 2020 to be over, raise your hands! Please assume our hands and feet are in the air, right now. This year has been a year of too many challenges and changes to name in this tiny little post. But there is always something positive in the middle of the crazy. Liiiiiike…the end of the year and all the holiday happenings that come with it.
What better way to prep for the holidays than to spotlight unique gifts for those special bibliophiles in our lives?
By now, you know how much we love the creatives on Etsy.com! It’s one of our favorite internet hang outs to find unique, bookish treasures worth sharing with you – a member of our super nerdy book dragon community. So, of course we headed to Etsy.com for bookish gift inspirations for the holidays. And, we were not disappointed!
A Little About Book Lovers
To appreciate the finds we came across for this spotlight moment, you gotta know something about book lovers. Specifically, no avid book lover worth their book nerd membership card, ever enters book reading zen without their Reading Bliss Survival Kit. Thaaat’s right…
- New book (or one worth rereading for the hundredth time)
- Favorite drink (preferably in a mug or glass with an attitude)
- Lighting (sunlight, book light (for when the sun goes down), and maybe even a candle)
- Soft music (for those who need a little white noise in the background)
- Comfy seat (most likely butt-imprinted couch, chair, or bed)
- Plushy pillow (preferably with a book pocket)
- Cozy blanket

We know you’re drooling. We did too and #aintnoshameinit. Just like you, we are in total book love with every one of these bookish finds.
What Do I Do With It?
Seems like such an odd question for our Bookish Things topic this month, but it’s a fair one.
We’ve already established that book blankets are a necessary survival kit item for the avid book lover. There’s just something about wrapping yourself in a cozy blanket while you read a book that ups the reading pleasure. It makes a bold, unspoken statement to your family that you are not to be moved from this spot unless the house is on fire or one of the kids needs to go to the hospital. #wefeelyavibe
Additionally, these beautiful, richly colored, amazingly crafted, and uniquely bookish finds are just in time for the holidays. Any one of them will take your Reading Bliss Survival Kit to the next level, or make the perfect gift for a book loving family or friend. Any librocubicularist will especially love one these!
