It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic:
Top Ten Bookish Things (That Aren’t Books) That I’d Like To Own
Oh there are just so many bookish gifts and things and AWESOME out there in the world. How do I possibly choose? To be honest, I have no idea, but here’s a list for Santa should he need ideas for me this Christmas:
LITERARY CANDLES. Yep. I need them. I actually haven’t bought any yet myself but Alyssa DID get me a Princess Bride-themed candle for Christmas last year! It’s called “The Cliffs of Insanity” <3 She got it from the Frostbeard Etsy Store which has SO MANY THINGS TO CHOOSE FROM. I kind of want them all.
Then there is this freaking gem that is HARRY POTTER CANDLES. I want these. A lot. These babies are from a website called Fandlemonium (and yes, they have other ones besides Harry Potter too.) I want them SO badly but they’re more money than I’m willing to spend on candles at the moment!
ANYTHING MARAUDER’S MAP. I realized back when I was looking for Christmas gifts last year that somehow I became obsessed with the Marauder’s Map and didn’t even realize it. It just LOOKS so fantastic and I basically want ALL THE GIFTS.
FANTASY MAPS. Well, I really don’t know where I would hang any of these (maybe a T-shirt is in order?) but I soooo want these maps. They look so amazing and I would just sit and stare at them, I’m sure.
BOOK LAPTOP CASE. Because how awesome is this laptop case that looks like a book? So awesome.
COFFEE MUGS. Because one of my favorite times to drink coffee is while reading and honestly, everything is better with books.
BEER GLASSES. Because besides coffee, I ALSO love beer. Different kind of brews & books!
PRINTS. There are honestly soooooooo many out there that I could possibly want. Again, no place to really put them unless I start decorating our guest room as a Harry Potter room (though really, is that ever a bad idea?) so I will hold off for now.
ACTUAL LITERARY BEER. I actually had the “Take the Black Stout” at a restaurant and it was pretty good! Strong, but good! There are more Game of Thrones beers and I’ll have to research more too…
