Holiday Gift Guide for Book Addicts 2015 | Apparel + Totes

gifts for book lovers

Yesterday I kicked off the gift guides of 2015 with bookish candle shops and today I’m shifting the focus to apparel, tote bags, and more!

I’ve started to amass many, many awesomely bookish shirts and I’m totally a tote bag hoarder so I definitely wanted to share some of my favorites for other book-lovers to find (both for themselves and for gifts)! Here are some of my favorites:

society6 shirts books fandoms

Society6 has alllll kinds of amazing bookish (and non-bookish) things. If you’re not familiar with it, each “store” on Society6 is run by a different artist. You can purchase their artwork through Society6 and have it printed on things like T-shirts, totes, mugs, iPhone cases, pillows, prints — the list goes on! I purchased this amazing Cabeswater shirt from a store on Society6 (emileegraverson) and it’s everything I could have ever wanted! Here are some other amazing shops (most of these have more than just shirts too!):

Risa Rodil | Bookworm Boutique | I Heart Big Books | Evie Seo | Drop and Give Me Nerdy | Emilee Graverson | Fiction Tea


Pretty much the same deal here as Society6! Lots to choose from, lots of great bookish/nerdy things, and lots of fandoms! (There’s an extensive amount to choose from if you search Throne of Glass…) Here are some of my favorites:

Cute Crazies | Only by Laura | Believe Luna | Sung Kim | Katie Paints | Samantha Weldon



Litographs is super cool. Ever wanted to WEAR your favorite book? Well now you can! Litographs prints an entire book onto a t-shirt (or tote or poster) and they also have some sweet bookish tattoos. I’d say most of the available books are classics (classic novels, older children’s books, etc) but there are a couple newer releases too. I was lucky enough to win the giveaway from Andi’s ABCs for the Throne of Glass t-shirt (pictured below!) and it is SO cool. (But it’s so awesome that I’m almost afraid to wear and wash it haha!) They were also incredibly kind and offered to send me a piece to picture in this post so I chose the Wizard of Oz tote so you could see a tote too!


Etsy has a ton of great shops for bookish t-shirts and totes! I could list and feature them all individually  but there are just soooo many that I’ll make a quick list for you of some of my favorites and the fandoms they include!


Did you know that several book blogger friends have Etsy/Society6 shops? There’s some pretty awesome merch there and it’s always fun supporting and friend too! Check ’em out:


Hand-painted book totes by Becca featuring scenes, covers, or quotes from your favorite YA novels!


Appraising Pages has an AWESOME shop featuring their original designs on T-shirts! From quotes to references to images… Divergent to The Fault in Our Stars to The Hunger Games and more — they’ve got your bookish fandoms covered! They also have jewelry, things for the home, and more!


Gillian from The Writer of Wrongs has an amazing Society5 shop! You can get t-shirts, totes, prints, tapestries, pillows, and oh the list goes on! Throne of Glass, The Raven Cycle, Anna and the French Kiss… she’s got your fandoms covered!

Which of these shops would you recommend? Have you purchased from any before? Any more excellent bookish shops you’d like to give a shout-out to?
