Who better to come up with some nifty bookish gift ideas than A Drift of Quills? Being bonafide readers and writers ourselves, we know about this stuff. We are, after all, not the only literary types in our worlds. (That made sense, right?) To save you time, spark your imagination, and hint broadly, we’ve set out to track down some of the coolest, funnest, funkiest, interesting ideas for your Christmas (or otherwise) gifting…
Bookish Gift Ideas for You and Everyone Else on Your List
Bookish gift ideas are nice to have any time of the year, right? We all know people who love to read and write, and there are many gifting occasions throughout the year.
But it’s December already, and although we have the same twelve months every year in which to prepare ourselves, we’e running behind again. And if you are one of those Miracle Early Shoppers, you’re probably still looking for a few last minute ideas for stockings, or office parties, or… all that jazz.
So put on your party hats, queue up the holiday tunes, and let’s do this!
For the Readers
Got a rebel in your midst? Check out this Banned Books Heat Reactive Mug. Bring these titles back into the light when you add a warm beverage.
And for the Snark-Meister, there’s this great sweatshirt (or tee, or tank, or onesie…) to proclaim their literary prowess. Or snobbishness. Either one. I’ve Already Read That Movie.
I confess, I’ve wanted this since the first time I saw it. The Wicked Witch Bookmark just flat out makes me giggle.
For the Writers
Did you know that disguising your MacBook Pro as a vintage book has been proven to prevent theft? What if it comes with a secret compartment? I, for one, would be delighted to say I’m working on my book in such a fashionable manner. BookBook Vol. 2 is a treasure for the refined writer.
We’ve all struggled with periods when our imagination was on vacation. Here’s a sign of the times: “Go Away I’m NOT Writing.” Original handmade wooden door sign.
A lot of my ideas come to me in the shower. I imagine it’s because showering is one of those great mundane tasks that requires no brainpower, thus leaving us free to daydream. Or, you know, write. (Writers are always writing. Trust me.) The trouble is, most showers are not equipped for writing. Enter Aqua Notes.
I confess, most of these just tickled my funny bone, but hey! Most writers and readers have those!
Are you ready to check out what my clever partners have come up with for bookish gift ideas? Read on!

I couldn’t help but chuckle when I read Parker’s opening. Then I got to Robin’s and laughed out loud. Why? Because she mentioned early shopping. I find the concept more than a little amusing. You see, I tried that early shopping routine some years back. I discovered it wasn’t for me. Here are my reasons: (1) I buy things I like so well and am so excited about that I give them to the person right away, thereby leaving myself in the position of having to shop again for the actual holiday; (2) I buy things I like so well, I keep them (and yes, that leaves me having to shop again); and (3) I just keep buying things! I never seem to think it’s enough, I forget what I already have, and really, let’s be honest: the gift-giving impulse builds as the holiday approaches.
Happy, happy holidays, from A Drift of Quills!
