Gifts for Book, Library, & Tech Fans

'Tis the season of giving... and here are some unique gift ideas for your favorite bibliophiles and techies. 

I love this keyboard waffle iron -- even though it's $85. 
It's sure to be a great conversation starter. 


Fancy a cup of tea with your waffles? Try some "Novel Teas"-- English Breakfast teabags, individually tagged with beloved quotes from your favorite authors. $12.50 each. 


Check out some literary scarves. There are 4 available: Jane Eyre , Alice in Wonderland, Wuthering Heights, Dorian Gray.


Light up their lives with some Literary Candles:
"Named for the locations in literary classics, these soy candles evoke the book's most memorable moments as they ignite your imagination. Custom blended fragrances let you get lost in a book by adding an irresistible new layer of intrigue."
$16 each, choose from:

* Sherlock Homes/221B Baker Street: Black currant tea and leather books
* Alice in Wonderland/A Mad Tea Party: Bergamot, lavender, mandarin, thyme, and ylang ylang, with a touch of jasmine
* Jane Eyre/Thornfield Garden: Roses and rain water
* Pride & Prejudice/Pemberley: Lily, lilac, rose, hyacinth, and ivy    


If your gift recipient is into Banned Books, they'll like these products. You can buy them socks ($10) or mugs. There are also Library Card Socks


This Library Card Tote Bag, for $20, is kind of irresistable...
It's 14" wide x 18" high, not counting the strap.


There's also a "Book Lover's Socks and Ornament Set" for $29.95. It includes one blown-glass ornament and one cotton ornment.


If you're a big spender, you might want to go for this lovely piece of hanging glass: "Books on a Shelf Stained Glass" for $89.95. It's 22" long x 10" tall.
Happy Shopping; Happy Holidays!
