The holiday season is rapidly approaching and with the chaotic nature of the world in general, it seems like it’s in everyone’s best interests to go ahead and get gift shopping done as quickly as possible. Here’s a list of bookish Etsy shops that you can scroll through for the perfect bookish holiday gifts.

Etsy shops are one of my favorite spots for gifting inspiration because there’s so much available, even though 99 times out of 100 I end up spotting something that I just can’t live without and adding it to cart for myself instead of staying on task. Still, even with that challenge, they’re treasure troves β€” and more and more of them are beginning to ship internationally, too!

One of the other great things about Etsy shops is that it’s often a lot easier to make a request to customize or alter a product to fit your specifications. Plus, you’re often supporting a small business which is an awesome bonus for me. Just keep in mind that custom pieces often have longer timelines attached to them (with good reason) and try to plan ahead so that you’re not wrapping up an invoice and product image with an IOU instead of the shriek-worthy gift you’d been planning on.
