'Tis the season for gift guides and I have not one, not two but SIX gift guides lined up. Yup, I have a little something for everyone and as always I'll be adding an afrocentric twist to my selections. In this guide, I've got gift ideas for book lovers. You'll find a couple of books in the mix (of course) but I've also got home decor and accessory ideas.
- Keep it simple by adding another tome to a book lovers collection. Why not treat them to The Good Immigrant, a collection of twenty essays that look into race and immigration from a British BAME perspective. SHOP HERE.
- Have you got a Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie fan in your midst? This Americanah print will have pride of place in their home. SHOP HERE.
- For the reader who has everything, get them tickets to the next Black Girls Book Club event. The first event was a roaring success and there are plans for another in January. Keep an eye on their Twitter (@bg_bookclub) to find out when tickets will be going on sale.
- What's nicer than snuggling up with a book? Snuggling under a beautiful throw. This gorgeous throw is made from the traditional fabric of the Dan people of Ivory Coast. SHOP HERE.
- An African Rain scented candle is the perfect accompaniment to an evening spent between the pages of Chinua Achebe. SHOP HERE.
- 'I have too many totes' said no one ever. Get them a supersized LauWares cotton tote to cart their books around in. SHOP HERE.
- Your friend/sibling/lover might be nutty for novels so why not broaden their horizons by gifting them a book of poetry. Start them off with Elephant by Siana Bangura. SHOP HERE.
- You will be hard pressed to find someone who isn't inspired by Maya Angelou. This handmade box of her quotes makes for an extra special gift. SHOP HERE.
- Inside every avid reader is a great story waiting to be told. Encourage them to get writing with a fabric covered journal from AfuaRok. SHOP HERE.
- I love how luxe this oilcloth tablet case is from Tote Collections. It fits 7" - 9" tablets so it's the perfect fit for a Kindle. SHOP HERE.
I hope this guide has given you some fresh ideas for this holiday season. There are more guides coming your way so look out for those. As always hit like if you've enjoyed this post and leave comments if you have any ideas that you think I should I add to the list.
