1. Jane Eyre Quote Framed Print by Bookishly
This stunning framed print was a graduation gift and it is the perfect present for any book lover. It happens to be my favourite quote from my favourite book but even if you haven’t read this Brontë classic it still makes a great addition to your home. Jane Eyre epitomises the strong independent woman and every time you look at this quote you can feel empowered and inspired by her strength. The print comes in a black wooden frame and features a page straight out of the book as the background to the quote. However, if you’re really not a fan of the Brontë sisters, Bookishly also do jewellery, notebooks and greeting cards among other things in a range of different bookish themes. All of their products make an amazing gift for the book lover in your life.
2. ‘The Poet’ Range by McKelvie Candles
If you have already read my full review on these candles then you will know how much I love them. I cannot get enough of ‘Little White Rose’ and ‘Eriskay Love.’ Not only do they have a high-pay-off fragrance, they also look beautiful on your bookshelf or coffee table and they have a fascinating literary story behind them, which you can read about in my original blog. Ditch your big corporate candle companies and get hours of enjoyment out of a product that is handcrafted with love and steeped in Scottish history. If you’re not a poetry lover, they do other year-round ranges such as Granny’s Kitchen which even boasts a Scottish Tablet candle – yum! Visit their site to find your local stockist.
3. Scottish Quote Mini Hanging Signs & Magnets by Amy Kay Illustration & Design
These little keepsakes are created by a very talented Scottish artist. Each of Amy’s designs are made with a whole lot of love and attention to detail. Not only are they gorgeous and quirky but these mini hanging signs are only £1 each so they make a great addition to any gift. They’re so tiny you could pop them inside a birthday card as a mini surprise for your loved one. They would look super cute hanging on a jewellery stand or pinned up on a notice board. Amy makes a variety of different hanging signs and prints with a range of lovely, inspirational messages to choose from. There is something for everyone from ‘Eat, Sleep, Contour’ signs for make-up junkies to stunning thank you gifts for teachers. Check out her Etsy page here.
4. Patchwork Map Magnetic Journal by Paperchase
I am a stationary geek and I have fallen victim to a Paperchase haul too many a time. It is easily my favourite shop on the high street. Everything is just so pretty. This journal was a gift from two close friends as a 3-in-1 Get Well Soon/Graduation/Leaving Work Gift and I have already decided it is my designated notebook for starting my Masters degree in Publishing in September. This notebook is chunky, luxurious and the beautiful patchwork map design makes it a must-have item for anyone suffering with a case of wanderlust. It would make a beautiful travel journal too if you’re going away this summer.
