Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend or searching for something to congratulate yourself on after a long year of hard work, it's always a good idea to support small businesses. Here are twelve online stores with handmade products, perfect for all book enthusiasts.
Note: You can click on the names of the businesses to open their website or store.
Sparks and Silver
There are two things I love to have with me while I write: green tea and candles. Sparks and Silver offers readers the chance to buy candles inspired by their favorite books and characters. Plus, they also have bookmark designs with quotes. And, to keep the good news coming, you can use the code JUVEN10 to get a discount!
Pretty Little Studios
If you enjoy journaling or have been meaning to get into it, Pretty Little Studios might be just for you. The store includes a variety of sticker collections, with everything from Neutral Cozy to Celestial Witch designs. There are also weekly and daily planners that can help keep you on track with deadlines.
Tiny Own Creations
Tote bags, magnets, bookmarks, what more could a reader ask for? Each of Sofia’s creations is full of details to admire. And, did I mention she also has book-themed stickers? If you are a fan of From Blood and Ash or Six of Crows, you might want to go to her store before her products are sold out.
Tea And Fairytales Shop
I love to take a book with me whenever I travel, and the idea of getting my book damaged is downright scary. However, there is a comfortable, charming solution: book sleeves! Tea and Fairytales has book sleeves that go perfectly well together with every fan-favorite book: Percy Jackson, The Invisible Life of Addie Larue, Lord Of The Rings, Pride and Prejudice, and many more.
Quotes and Curses
Book boxes featuring both indie and traditional books, which also include three bookish goodies to enjoy. Need I say any more? You have the opportunity to subscribe to this service for three months, buy one full box, or go for the book only.
Celeste Archives has lamps, pins, candles, prints, and stickers, but my favorite products are definitely the mugs with bookish quotes (I believe I already mentioned how much I love tea during this blog post). You can place your order by Instagram DMs at @celeste.archives. As her bio states, this business is ”putting your fictional world at the palm of your hands.”
This small business includes bookmarks, phone cases, and jewelry made of resin, which you can customize for special gifts and occasions. Lately, I’ve fallen completely in love with everything crafted in this material, and with Seriously Kreative’s flower-pressing designs. You can reach this store through DM’s or WhatsApp, at @seriously.kreative.
If you prefer reading paperbacks or using a kindle, you should check out Handivity Designs’ gorgeous book sleeves. Each product is washable, handmade, and made out of raw materials produced by local businesses in India. Additionally, they are currently having a 45% end-of-year sale!
Some of the products this business includes are brooches, earrings, and necklaces inspired by your favorite books, as well metal art prints of different fandoms such as Marvel, Star Wars, and The Vampire Diaries. Booknerd Fangirls is also currently offering holiday gift cards, so you don’t have to panic about what to give your friends.
Bliss & Joy Creations
More than fifty bookmarks to choose from, many of which have a quote, an illustration, and a color palette that matches a book. Are you searching for a Crescent City bookmark? How about Shadow and Bone, The Great Gatsby or Shatter Me? There is most likely a bookmark for you. (and who knows, perhaps this way I’ll stop using whatever piece of paper I have lying around to mark my pages.)
Plum Tree Illustration
May I just say, this store is every witch academia, vintage lovers’ dream. Plum Tree Illustrations’ sustainable stationery is truly capable of transporting you to a whimsical place. They even have a letter-writing set that includes wax seals (wax seals!).
Finally, if you want to support The Young Writers Initiative, feel free to wander around TYWI’s Redbubble Shop. And, because experiences make up some of the best gifts, you can also invest in a Gold Pass or VIW pass for the Winter Writeathon!
And, as always, JUVEN Press hopes you have a wonderful holiday season.
