Book-inspired presents for all the lit lovers in your life
It’s a truth universally acknowledged amongst my friends and family that I am mildly (*cough* not so mildly *cough*) obsessed with Jane Austen. Which means that each time Christmas or my birthday rolls around, I find myself on the receiving end of a new Austen-related gift. And I love each and every one.
From my Jane Austen action figure, to my Pride & Prejudice scarf, you could say I’m a bit of an expert now when it comes to nerdy lit-inspired gifts. And my expertise isn’t Austen specific! I know what flies for fans of all genres. With that in mind, here are just a handful of perfect gift suggestions for all the book lovers in your life — based on their favorite novel, but of course.
