Gifts for Literature Lovers: Part One
Last year I really did outdo myself with gifts for the librarians and lovers of literature in my life (see here) and this year I’m on the lookout for more literary themed gifts. Because I am a sharing and caring person and I love looking at pretty things online, I am going to share my literary themed gifts with you over the next month or so. So let us begin!
Over the years Dan has purchased me a few items from ‘Oh My Giddy Aunt’ and possibly my favourite piece has been a ring with the Da Vinci quote, ‘There shall be wings!’. I wear it all the time. I adore these rings and there is a number of quotes you can choose from and they can be done as pendants and cuffs…I would like to add a few more to my collection because, seriously, there is nothing better than wearing words you love. Next on my list are the following quotes from the range; There is no one alive who is Youer than You – Dr Seuss; This above all – to thine own self be true – Shakespeare; Be the change You want to see in the world – Mahatma Gandhi; Not all those who wander are lost – JRR Tolkien and Life is either a daring adventure or nothing – Helen Keller.
Nikki from Oh My Giddy Aunt has a fabulous array of literary themed gifts (and other gorgeous delights). I’ve been a long time lover of all things Oh My Giddy Aunt and have her Funki Fungi stools in my library (see here), her fairies in Pud’s fairy garden (see here) and Pud has a tooth fairy bracelet on the go (see here). The most special thing my family have purchased from her is the ‘story bracelets’ we have started for my nieces to remember their daddy by. More on that another day.
This year I’m thinking I need a large sterling silver Forever Written Book which can be worn as a necklace or put on a key ring or as a tassel bookmark.
