 Card Catalogue notecards

Indulge in some library nostalgia with this trompe l'oeil Card Catalog featuring 30 notecards from the Library of Congress. Each card in the set is a replica of the original hand-written cards used to catalogue the literary classics, from Austen to Woolf. Envelopes are included, so all that's missing are those stubby little pencils. $13


tote bag

And speaking of the library, this tote bag offers some sage advice for any book lover on your list: When in doubt, go to the library. I mean, free books! All year long! Plus, you can never have too many tote bags. Available in three sizes, $18 and up


framed library print

Buying art for other people can be tricky... unless that person happens to be a bookworm. There's nothing more pleasing to our eye than rows and rows of spines on a shelf. Abstract, figurative, modern, or classic, it doesn't matter. Just give us all the books. This beautiful print by Emily Rickard is available in several sizes starting at $35 framed.


bibliophilia postcards

Class up your holiday correspondence with these beautiful, minimalist postcards designed by Obvious State Studio. No hostess can possibly hold a grudge if you send your regrets using the gracious art of letter writing. Au revoir awkward social gatherings! Bibliophilia: 100 Literary Postcards $14 


banned books socks

And now that you've cleared your social calendar, how about some cozy socks to keep your toes warm while you sit by the fire? Oh, wait. This was supposed to be a gift guide for other people. Oops. OK, in the spirit of giving (and #socksunday), how about one pair for them, and one pair for you? We think you've earned it. $10
