CHRISTMAS IS COMING! And although I don’t celebrate it with presents that much, we celebrate Sinterklaas over here in the Netherlands, with presents. Also, it’s my birthday in less than a month, so December certainly is a time that I have to think about what I’d like to have as a gift. Here are some of the things I’d ask for!
1. Harry Potter books (illustrated editions)
Instagram is definitely the place to keep up to date. At least, it is for me! I get inspired by all the lovely photo’s and recommendations whether to buy a book or not. And since this edition of the Harry Potter book is a little too expensive to buy myself, I ask for it as a Christmas/birthday present! (€25 – €30)
2. A Bookish Box!
On Instagram (yes, again. I spend most of my time on this social medium) I’m currently following a couple of bookish box accounts like Owlcrate, Fairyloot, and The Nocturnal Reader’s Box! Especially the last one has been on my dream to-buy list for a long time now. But yeah, my wallet won’t let me buy it. So, what’s a better occasion to ask for a bookish box than Christmas or your birthday? (about $30 – $35 per box + shipping)
3. Bookish Candle
Oh how I love scented candles! It’s such a pity that my boyfriend doesn’t really like them, otherwise I would be burning some bookish smelling candles 24/7! Like this candle with an ‘old books’ scent or with the smell of The Shire by Frostbeard Studio! ($18)
4. A Bookish Mug
In the Fairyloot box of November I got a bookish mug that said “Queen of books” (You can find more about the unboxing over here!) and now I just want to have them all! Like these simple ones, designed by Bookwormboutique! ($15)
5. Funko Pops!
I have the idea that the only thing really missing on my bookshelves are some nice funko’s. I’ve seen a LOT of them on instagram and they are just so cute! I’d love to have some of the Harry Potter funko’s, like Luna Lovegood! (€15 – €35)
