Bookish Merchandise To Gift The Bookworm in Your Life (Especially If That Bookworm Is Me) {Top Ten Tuesday}

181113 Bookish merch2

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about that bookish merchandise! Because us bookworms don’t just love books, we love the bookish merch as well. Mostly to look at and admire from afar, because with those precious funds book could be bought instead, but once in a while a splurge could occur and one of these fun bookish items could be purchased. Or even better, gifted, because is there any gift more fun to give and receive than bookish merch?

So for fun’s sake, here’s some of the bookish merch on my wishlist πŸ™‚


“Read more books” fox pillow: I love foxes, I love books AND I have a fondness for pillows so could this be any more perfect?

Sarah J. Maas phone case: I love this quote and this aesthetic, so it would be the perfect iPhone case. Except I don’t have an iPhone. But that’s a detail, right?


Today a reader, tomorrow a leader t-shirt: Let’s give everyone who meets me and sees my t-shirt a good idea of my hobbies Γ‘nd my ambitions, shall we?

Ravenclaw Quidditch PJ’s: I love PJ’s. I could live in PJ’s 24/7 if I could get away with it. (Sidenote: since I’m in fact a Ravenpuff, I would be equally happy with the Hufflepuff version. Maybe both, so I can alternate them, doesn’t that sound perfect?)

To the stars who listen and the dreams that are answered notebook: Did I ever tell you I am obsessed with notebooks? I love collecting them and then looking at them and never writing in them. As one does.

Harry Potter Christmas sweater: I’ve been on the lookout for my very own ugly Christmas sweater for years now, without much luck. This one though? I LOVE IT AND NEED IT NOW!

#currently reading pillow: Again with the pillows, but I can’t help it okay? Plus this one features my blog colors, so it’s a must-have, right? Just think of all the cool bookstagram pics I could take with it!

Samwise Gamgee Funko Pop: I will love and adore Samwise Gamgee until the end of time, and as such I need this Funko Pop in my life so he can claim his rightful place as king of my bookshelf.

Β Β Β Β Β the thirteen t-shirt

Bookish t-shirt: Again, let’s be clear from the start so people know what to expect of me!

The Thirteen t-shirt: “From now until the darkness claims us” *sobs* I just love these witches, okay?

In love with a too-clever fox mug: I am totally in love with a too-clever fox, especially the one they call Nikolai Lantsov. Also, I like foxes. And mugs. I do love mugs.

Hamlet “No” tote bag: Why talk to people when you could just flash them your tote bag and get the point across?

shiro kitsune plushie

Shiro kitsune plushie. This last one is unfortunately not for sale, but it doesn’t mean I don’t want one badly! Annette Marie, the writer of some of my favorite series, such as the Red Winter trilogy, made this plushie herself (as if I couldn’t be in any more awe of her) based on a character from the story. Isn’t it just adorable?

Tell Me:
Would you love any of this merch too?

  1. Love the #currentlyreading pillow- that’s awesome. I think bookish pillows in general are cool though. Love the plushie too!

    1. Bookish pillows are so cool indeed, I love them all <3

  2. What a great collection of bookish goodness. I love the bookish pillow.

    1. Thanks! I love bookish pillows πŸ™‚

  3. Oh my goodness..that Samwise funko pop is the cutest things ever. I want it so badly! What a great list!

    1. Samwise Gamgee is the best! πŸ™‚

  4. Throw pillows are fun! I have quite a few though only one bookish one. It’s one from EvieSEO and is a Jane Austen design. I also love a good tee, and am so sad Bookshelf Tees closed their shop. They were my favorites. πŸ™‚ Hope this all finds it way to you… someday, Lindsey. Happy shopping. πŸ™‚

    1. One can never have enough pillows, haha πŸ™‚ And EvieSEO has some gorgeous designs, so I’m sure your pillow is awesome too! Plus Jane Austen, what more do you need? πŸ˜‰

  5. Well, my heart hurts knowing that there is a Shiro plush out there and it’s unavailable ? It is so cute though! That sweater is to die for!

    1. Me too, if it ever becomes available for purchase I’d probably jump at the opportunity <3

  6. I adore Samwise Gamgee, and would love his Funko Pop. Love your list!

    1. Samwise Gamgee is the best, I’m so happy he has his own Funko Pop, now I just need it in my life πŸ˜€

  7. The fox items are too cute and oh my gosh that plushie *.*

    1. I am a sucker for any item with a fox on it, I admit <3

  8. That case is sooo pretty! I don’t have an iPhone either and sometimes really feel discriminated, haha. Seems like some people don’t even want to consider making a case for other brands anymore? And I’m simply refusing to get an iPhone so.. I’m stuck. Especially since I can’t seem to find a Samsung-case absolutely to my liking. Must be too picky, really.

    I still think it’s funny how people want an “ugly” sweater, but they still have to like it. Makes sense it takes AGES to find the right one, haha. I found my “perfect one” last year. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to wear it this year since.. I’m pregnant and it doesn’t fit? HAHA. So far for actually having an ugly sweater for once.. πŸ˜›

    Here’s my TTT should you be interested. πŸ™‚

    1. Haha, glad to hear I’m not the only one without an iPhone that has this case problem! Guess I’m too picky too πŸ˜‰
      OMG I hadn’t looked at it that way yet, but you’re so right about the ugly Christmas sweaters πŸ˜€ And CONGRATS for being pregnant, that’s great! Hope you’ll be able to rock your sweater next year then πŸ˜‰

  9. So many great items! I especially love the PJs.

    1. My philosphy is that one can never have too many PJ’s πŸ˜€

  10. I Love that notebook – great wishlist

    1. It is an adorable notebook <3

  11. I’ve never read Hamlet, but I relate to that tote bag so much ?

    1. Haha, yeah this tote bag is awesome and I never needed anything more πŸ˜€

  12. I didn’t know there was such a thing as Ravenclaw quidditch pyjamas, but now I want a pair as well.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. We can never have too many pyjamas, especially Harry Potter related ones πŸ˜‰

      1. Astilbe says:


  13. I want ALL the Harry Potter things. Those Pj’s and the Ugly Christmas Sweater are awesome. NEED! I also love Funko Pops and I want all the bookish ones. That No tote bag is hilarious, and I love it so much.


    1. Yes, we need more bookish Funko Pops! Haha, I so really want that No tote bag, it’s probably my favorite from this entire list πŸ˜€

  14. Oooh I love those Revenclaw PJs! I want those too!

    1. They are so cute, aren’t they? πŸ™‚

  15. If they had more stuff in the Legend fandom I think it’d be easier for me to find bookish stuff I want, LOL. I did find some really cute shadowhunter bookmarks though. My parents think I’m really hard to shop for. I’m really actually easy to shop for if you’re willing to give an gift card. I could go through those like crazy.

    1. Haha yeah, us booklovers ALWAYS know just what to get with a giftcard, don’t worry about that πŸ™‚

  16. Ok how can an ugly sweater be so freaking beautiful? That is the perfect sweater for the holidays.

    I’m also really digging the fox mug – I’m kind of obsessed with anything foxes! So that mug is very me!

    1. I know, it’s the PERFECT ugly sweater <3
      Haha, I'm obsessed with foxes too so I completely understand πŸ˜‰

  17. PJ’s FOREVER!!! I basically live in Pj’s??? They only come off when I need to leave the house! XD
    I literally have a stack of unused notebooks on my desk because they won’t fit in my notebook drawer…. filled with…. more unused notebooks…. oops.
    I JUST REALLY LOVE NOTEBOOKS!! Every time I see one I like my thought process is, “Oh I like that one!! I would use it for sure!! And I’d better buy it in case I never find it again!” … but then I don’t use it. But I still love them all!
    Happy Reading!! <3

    1. So with you on PJ’s FOREVER! I’d live in them 24/7 if I could πŸ˜‰
      And I totally understand your thought process when it comes to notebooks, don’t worry, haha πŸ˜€

  18. YESSSSSSSSSSSS, your list has so many good items on it! Those HP PJs are seriously way too cute and I didn’t even think about adding coffee mugs to my list!

    1. Thanks! I definitely hope to get those HP PJ’s soon, haha πŸ™‚

  19. I’m also obsessed with notebooks and that one is beautiful!

    1. A gorgeous notebook is always a good thing to have, haha πŸ™‚

  20. What a perfect list!?!? I actually have that exact dreamers print by Stella Bookish Art as a drink coaster and it’s so stunning. I love her work and so much so that I had to buy a Rattle the Stars travel mug too. πŸ™‚ I also love those Ravenclaw pjs. I’m a Ravenclaw so we might have to fight over them! πŸ™‚ And that Thirteen shirt? SOB. OH! And PLEASE let’s all get Shiro kitsune plushies!?!? Can everyone just read and love this series immediately so that we can buy awesome bookish merch for it????

    Side note: I’ve been a useless blogger this year. I’m sorry. I’m not trying to catch up anymore but just trying to start afresh. Here’s hoping I can do better from NOW! I’ve missed you!!!!!! How have you been by the way???? Tell me all the things?!

    1. Haha that is so funny, we have similar bookish art taste then! πŸ˜‰ But it is totally gorgeous, I’d love more of her work too!
      I’d be okay getting those PJ’s in Hufflepuff so you could have the Ravenclaw ones, since I’m honestly a Ravenpuff (and bad at making decisions obiously haha)
      YESSS everybody needs to read Red Winter so we can all have Shiro plushies! I need one so bad!! (and a Zwi plushie too while we’re at it… and I wouldn’t mind one of that cute little dragon fae thing on the cover of Two Witches either πŸ˜‰ <3
      You're totally not a useless blogger Di! And I totally understand, I've been pretty MIA on the blogosphere too for the past few months, with so much going on with house renovations and job stuff, and I only started replying to 2 months worth of comments last week... and I already noticed I'll never be able to catch up so I'm with you on the starting to do better from now on πŸ™‚ I hope to get by your blog soon too! How have you been?

  21. Haha, I love that tote bag. I want more bookish clothes, too. They’re so pretty!
