Etsy Find Fridays: For the reader who has everything

It’s almost Christmastime, friends — something you’ve probably noticed while checking out neighbors’ lights displays, digging out favorite holiday albums or almost colliding with one of the many distracted drivers clogging up the roads leading to the local mall.

After going shopping with my dad and sister on Black Friday, an annual tradition, I’ve tried to avoid stores as much as possible the last few weeks. I get antsy in crowds and generally dislike waiting, even if I can see the end of the line. People accidentally pushing into me get on my nerves, and I can’t stand fighting with someone for the last gift basket/candle/bottle of holiday-scented lotion. Not my bag.

Plus, like many web-savvy consumers, I prefer to shop online — unless I truly have no clue what I want to buy and need to browse around (but even that can be done online). And as I’ve blogged before, I’m in love with Etsy, an online marketplace of homemade goods (and occasionally sell things there, too). In the spirit of our upcoming holidays, I’ve scoured the site for some cool reading-related gifts — and now I’m sharing them with you!

If you’re searching for a gift for your literature-loving loved one, here are some items I think are awesome — and definitely worthy of being coveted. Hover over the images for descriptions, and click each photo to view the item on Etsy. If you have favorites to share, feel free to share them in the comments!

    • Thanks Juju! It’s been a pretty irregular feature on the blog for a bit. I’m not sure I’ll be posting Etsy finds every Friday, but expect to see much more of this feature in the future! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love the read/write earrings. Those are adorable. Oh wait, I wasn’t supposed to be looking for myself. ๐Ÿ™‚ Those are some awesome finds, though.

    I have to agree with you about being antsy in crowds. And don’t even get me started on being bumped into – repeatedly. UGH! The worst is when people bump into kids and don’t even seem to notice. I had some distracted woman run into my baby (who was in her infant seat!) with her cart a few years ago. I embarrassed my husband because I could not keep quiet about that. LOL If I can’t shop online – I go to the stores right after school drop off. The stores are virtually empty and it’s wonderful.

  3. Thanks for the Etsy reminder. I keep forgetting about it.

    I also do my shopping online. I dislike the mall during the first 11 months of the year and it only gets worse in December!
