As I’ve mentioned in my Etsy book club series, I’ve been getting addicted to a lot of Etsy products. During quarantine it’s been a great way for me to explore markets from smaller creators and find some real gems. Shopping through Etsy feels like walking through a farmer’s market. You never know exactly what you’re going to find. Plus, it’s a gold mine for Bookish Gifts.
Just like my post on Book Subscription Boxes these are all gifts I’ve either received myself or bought for others. I can speak to the quality of all of these gifts. My favourite gifts can all be found on my Etsy profile, but if you want to have it all broken down, keep reading!
For full transparency, this blog post contains affiliate links. If you want to click through them, I will make a little bit of money off of your purchases. This is no extra cost to you, it just helps me keep the blog afloat! It’s a win-win where I get to make money for hosting costs and also share some really cool things that I love.
With that said, let’s go!
Where can I find great bookish gifts on Etsy?
The Best Shops for Bookish Gifts
There are so many great shops for Bookish Gifts, but because there are so many it can be hard to find the right ones. A protip for using Etsy is to favourite shops. It’s not always obvious that you can do that, but click the heart when you’re on the main shop page! You’ll get notifications about sales and new items added which will make it much easier to find some of those great items. Plus, this will help Etsy shape future recommendations for you.

Amazing Bookmarks on Etsy
Etsy is a great place to find unique bookmarks. I’m someone who likes bookmarks that are dynamic and just beyond the ones I could find sold in physical stores. Etsy has bookmarks where people make their art, they have ones where you can find wood pieces burned. I’ve had a bookmark that was crocheted made for me on Etsy. All of my favourite bookmarks right now have come from an Etsy shop, so this is a must for Bookish gifts for the reader in your life. On top of that, bookmarks are cheap to deliver since they can usually just be sent in an envelope. If that’s not a win-win, I’m not sure what is.

Incredible Bookish Gifts on Etsy
There are so many great bookish gifts on Etsy that I don’t know where to start. If you’re looking for more traditional gifts like tote bags or book sleeves, then Etsy has you covered. If you want more unique things, then you’ll find them here too. I love just searching around and finding things I didn’t even know I wanted like these old-school library card coasters. From T-shirts, to socks, to mystery boxes, to home decor there are so many things to explore with a Bookish bent. If you’re looking for a good place to start, I’ve got a favourites list here.
Incredible Stationary Gifts
So stationary is booming on Etsy and it’s easy to see why. There are so many fantastic stationary sets and handmade journals that make this amazing. My favourite for stationary art prints is Obvious State with their beautiful quotes and fully realized black and white art. Whatever you’re looking for stationary wise, you’re going to be able to find unique and cool versions of it on Etsy. After shopping notebooks here, I can’t go back and search for the regular Hilroy notebooks any more. I’ve been spoiled! If you’re part of a bigger fandom too, like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, you’re going to be able to find some amazing gems.

Fun Enamel Pins on Etsy
I love collecting Enamel pins. think they’re so cool and they look so great. I can’t get enough of how unique they can be. Etsy is a gold mine for beautiful enamel pins. I have spent so much money on shops like Alum and Ink. A lot of the kickstarter pins that you may have seen are on Etsy as well, but without any of the risk of the project not getting funded or fulfilled. Whatever fandom you’re a part of, whichever book is your favourite, you’ll be able to find something that suits you for enamel pins. I’ve never been let down by Etsy yet.

Dreamy Bookish Gifts
While Etsy has lots of affordable gifts, there are some that I absolutely adore but can’t justify spending the money on yet. These are bookish gifts that are dreams, that I would love to have “one day”, but can’t or won’t buy yet. From geodes with silver little prince figurines to tiny minature book shelves that create little worlds on your shelf… I want them all so badly, but either don’t have the space or can’t justify the cost just yet. But one day. It’s like putting together a wishlist for your dream house. This is my favourite’s list for bookish gifts that I want to own one day.
