Last month I posted a "Christmas Gift Ideas" which was comprised of items I'd found on a few stores on Big Cartel. In keeping with the Christmas theme, this moth I've looked at Etsy to find some ideas for gifts for literature lovers.

The scarf is white, 100% cotton knit, and features print from Jane Austen's Persuasion.
If you're in the U.K. be careful on Etsy, a lot of the items come from U.S. sellers so you might end up paying a fair bit in postage, but if you are in the U.S. then you'll probably find the postage is a lot easier for you. The products on etsy are a lot more charming and have a cute "gifty" feel to them, probably because the site is more well known for being about crafts and creativity, whereas BigCartel creates business Whichever it is you decide to have a look at (if any) they each offer some wonderful things that perhaps you wouldn't normally see in the shops, and I think a lot of these things would make lovely gifts.
