It’s nearly Christmas! Ok so we still might have a few weeks yet, but this is the perfect time to get on with your Christmas shopping. Whether you need items to add to your wishlist or need ideas for friends the below is a list of some of my favourite UK based bookish shops. I have tried and tested items from most of these shops and can say without a doubt that the items are beautiful and incredibly well made. Whether you’re looking for bookmarks, pins, candles or books with unique sprayed edges, you will be hard pressed to resist pressing that ‘purchase’ button when you check them out.
The items from this shop are so beautiful. I got myself one of the canvas organiser and it looks absolutely amazing on my chest of drawers. I’ve also asked for the ‘Book Witch’ cushion for Christmas cause its SO sparkly!
This is the perfect shop to visit if you’re a lover of bookmarks and beautiful sprayed edges. There are also custom spots available if there is a specific book you want painting. I have so many bookmarks from this shop, they are all stunningly designed and really high quality.
I love this shop so much! It’s not all bookish but the items are just gorgeous. Filled to the brim with pins, washi tape, stickers, phone cases, Keyrings and so much more there is something for everybody. I’ve had a few pins and some washi tape from this shop and the quality is amazing.
Again, this shop doesn’t sell purely bookish items but I couldn’t resist adding it in. The Alethiometer pin is sooo beautiful and as well as the above the shop is stocked full of tote bags, keyrings, necklaces and much more.
Candles! I am such a sucker for a bookish candle and these one’s are just beautiful and they smell amazing. They have a range of different fandoms as well as special edition boxes that look amazing.
This is one of my all time favourite bookish shops, not only because the items are SO BEAUTIFUL but also really well made. I have around 3 tops and 3-4 pins from here, and I have more on my wishlist for this year. They have some really strong feminist themed quotes and I just can’t get enough.
The items in this shop look amazing, and though I haven’t bough anything from here yet you can be sure I have some items added to my Christmas list. They have an awesome range of bookish candles as well as items based around musical’s and iconic films!
