Do you or your friend take bookish photos? How about adding a unique bookish card to the photos, made by DutchDoodling? Or you could tuck it into your gift, or mail it in an envelope. Each one is different, and they look beautifully done. $4.06 CAN each. She also has bigger cards available for $5.69 CAN each, and bookmarks.
How about a bookish enamel pin? There are so many lovely ones:
What booklover doesn’t agree that books are magic? Enamel pin by PinItUpStyle. $15.10 CAN.
Or try a custom tiny book–which can be made into a magnet or pin–by emslilbookshop for a writer or booklover you know. This could be very meaningful for an author. $13.66 CAN.
For your writer friends, how about this enamel writer pin by ThatsLovelyDear? $12.99 CAN.
Book nooks are a new fad, and some of them are incredibly gorgeous and enchanting–but also expensive. For a cheaper book nook option that is still cute, you might try one of these book nook/book shelf inserts by ZubairsShop. $30.80 CAN
If you had a big budget, you might like something like this adorable needle-felted mouse reader sculpture by mbcreature, which is very reasonably priced for such a handmade work. $89.40 CAN
