Bookish Gifts With A Difference

If you want to get a gift for a booklover but not buying the usual present of a book, BookWear is an excellent place to get something.

Instead of pages this book has a compressed shirt (or other gift) inside printed with your logo. Your story and graphics are on the BookWear® cover. The recipient reads the message and wears your shirt. Every time they put it on they’re reminded of your message. And they’re advertising for you! Mail BookWear® like a postcard!

If you’re looking for a present for your bookworm & blogger friend, SnapShirts can make the perfect gift. It’s a site selling customised t-shirts made up of the blogger’s word cloud (which basically means the more common words peppered around a blog, and not the categories that makes up a tag cloud in a blog). If your friend doesn’t have a blog, you could get t-shirts with word cloud of popular books such as The Da Vinci Code, Alice in Wonderland, Moby Dick, A Christmas Tale and even the book of Revelations!

But if you prefer to go down the more traditional book gifts road, this site may appeal better to you. Handmade book jewellery and miniature books and ukulele books!
