My Christmas Wishlist // 2021

Hi Friends,
I thought that I would share my Christmas wishlist for you today. Now, I have mentioned that I don’t really make a gift list, but I do have a personal wishlist for myself. So, these are some of the things that I would eventually like to get, but wouldn’t mind if they were gifted to me as well.

Rose Gold Slip-On Sneakers
I pretty much only where flats and booties these days, so I wanted a dressier pair of slip-ons. There were some that I found some on Amazon that are super cute, and in rose gold! I wouldn’t mind getting them in black either.

Bobs Slip-On
Yep, more shoes what can I say I am living out my Carrie Bradshaw obsession. I love my Bobs! They have to be the most comfy shoes that I have ever worn. However, my black ones are on their last leg, which means I’m going to need a replacement. Soon. Bobs are more on the pricey side, so it is always nice to get them as a gift.

No Heat Curlers
I watched a video featuring ‘The Sleep Styler’ and it made me want hair rollers so bad. I never leave myself enough time to do my hair in the mornings, but I hate my wavy messy looking hair. The curlers could be a good way to do my hair without adding a ton of heat to it. Also, I am not looking to get expensive rollers since I am just starting out with them.

Anything by Karen M. McManus
This past year, I have become a fan of her YA thrillers, so I wouldn’t mind receiving any of her books. I enjoyed the ‘One Of Us Is Lying’ duology, and would like to read more of her releases. The books aren’t too scary, and they’re easy reads.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
I love getting different versions to add to my collection. I have seen some additions with stunning covers. In my opinion, one can never have too many copies of their favorite book.

The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand
I am surprised that I haven’t asked for this book sooner since it is a YA ‘Christmas Carol’ retelling. And by now you all know my obsession with that book (see above). Having a copy of this one would be amazing, since reread it every holiday season.

Those are all some small things that I have on my wishlist, but I prefer to be surprised when it comes to gifts. There is just something about getting a present that someone picked out for you, just because it made them think of you. That just fills my heart with joy. Let me know what is on your wishlist, book related or otherwise. Like, share and follow the blog for more Bookmas content.

Until The Next Chapter,

Bookish Gift Guide // Holiday 2021

Hi Friends,
Sometimes it’s hard to decide on the perfect gift for someone. So to help you out, I put together a bookish holiday gift guide for the reader in your life. These are just some gift ideas that I think any book lover would be delighted to receive.

Audiobook Credit
I am a big advocate for audiobooks, so I think a credit to an audiobook service would be a great gift idea. I know that some readers aren’t a fan of audiobooks, but your gift might give them the chance to try them without any commitment. You can gift an Audible (Amazon’s audiobook subscription services) membership to someone, or use one of your credits to gift a certain audiobook. If you are looking for another option, Rakuten Kobo is an audiobook/eBook subscription service that offers eGift cards.

Bookish DVDs
Maybe you have a reader in your life who has more than enough books. Wait, is that even possible? Anyhow, try switching things up by gifting them a book related movie. A few of my favorites are ‘The Man Who Invented Christmas’, which tells the story of how Charles Dickens came up with his most famous novel, ‘A Christmas Carol.’ Another classic that has been adapted many times is ‘Little Women’. There are many film versions that would make great presents, but I particularly enjoyed the 2019 film. There are a ton more book-to-movies adaptations that you can give that I am sure any book addict would love to receive.

Blind Date With A Book
These have become all the rage lately, and I’m all for it. Honestly, I think that this is a fun gift, even for an occasional reader in your life. It is an awesome surprise gift since you don’t know what you’re going to get. There are many shops that sell these bundles, and you can pick your preferred genre. The prices range is quite varied. However, I’ve noticed that the more expensive ones include additional items along with the book.

Bookmarks & Book Sleeves
I think these two are often forgotten, but useful to many of us readers. For years, every Christmas I’d get a fancy bookmark from a department store. Nowadays, you can get some amazing bookmarks and book sleeves from places like Etsy and Amazon. I know that Amazon is the every shopper friendly and typically my go to shopping place. But it is always good to shop at small businesses especially during the Holidays.

Cheesy Books
I didn’t know exactly how to phrase this idea, but I think it might be silly to gift. I have read some really interesting books in my life, and some of them were surprisingly entertaining. First, I would recommend the ‘L.A. Candy’ series by Lauren Conrad, which is loosely based on her life on reality TV. These books are very cheesy and full of drama. However, I am unsure if you can still find them online, yet there’s a pretty good chance that you can get them secondhand.

Another good choice would be the ‘Beneath the Glitter’ duology by YouTuber’s Elle and Blair Fowler. These books, are ironically enough based on their lives, which seems to be the theme of non-typical writers books. Like they say, write what you know. The books follow sisters, Sophia and Ava London, who become internet sensations thanks to their popular YouTube beauty channels. The books are filled with parties, drama and scandal, which makes for an insane time.

And that’s a few bookish gift ideas! Hopefully, this post helps you out with your gift giving this year. Feel free to like and share this post. And, before you click away follow the blog.
