Mother’s Day is quickly approaching—May 13th—what better way to celebrate all that she does than by giving her a relaxing day with a book that has been sitting in her TBR pile? While I enjoy going out and being celebrated by my kiddos and husband, I also enjoy a Mother’s Day where I can snuggle into my comfy chair and be waited on all day. If you have a bibliophile for a mom, here are some bookish gift suggestions sure to make her happy. And I promise, this mom approves!
If I know one thing, there is no such thing as too many blankets. Especially if their soft snuggly ones.
Litographs has changed the bookish blanket game! What’s your mom’s favorite book, or just one of her top faves? Litographs has book options in almost every genre. They print excerpts from your chosen book onto a blanket and also create a unique design that symbolizes that book. They have a ton of other bookish ideas perfect for Mother’s Day, as well!
Bookish Frosted Glass Cup
Moms can always use another cup, and what better one than an adorable frosted glass tumbler with a wooden cap and glass straw? Reading makes us thirsty, so these are handy. They are designed so that we don’t ruin our book or e-reader, inevitably spilling our drink. Etsy’s Crescent Moon Cups are only $16.95 and available in 7 colors.
As a mom with children who also like to read, it was extremely exciting when they got old enough to start reading my books. Not only are they taking an interest in books that I love, but we can now talk about them and geek out together. A way to make this more fun, especially if your mom loves an e-reader, is to buy her a Reading Journal, like this one from LNL Shoppes. Not only does mom get to track her reading, but it’s a fun way to look back at how she felt about a particular book.
Moms love handmade gifts. Hands down, I promise you that bookmark you made her in kindergarten with your tiny handprint on it is still one of her favorite presents EVER. But she’s not going to use that in real life; it might get ruined. She’s going to put it in a box with the rest of the keepsakes that represent your childhood and all that she holds dear. So maybe this year, buy her a bookmark that’s a bit more durable, like this one.
Personalized Book Embosser
If your bibliophile mom is anything like me, she’s on her way to owning her own library—as is only appropriate. I have a tendency to write my name on my books—I also annotate inside them. These embossers from Pickled Stamps personalize her library; how stinking cute! They have a ton of designs to choose from to make it truly unique to your mom’s style.
