To her surprise, these phone cases took off, and ten years later she has built an empire. Chick-Lit Designs takes your favorite book covers and turns them into wonderful handcrafted phone cases that would be a great gift to any bookish family member, friend, or even yourself. Go ahead, we won’t tell anyone. Treat yourself!

The inside of these cases has a quote from the story and more detail that fits the theme! If you don’t find anything you like, you can request a custom cover through email. However, odds are your bookish gift recipient knows a book or two that’s already on the list that they would love to have.
