The moment I see books. I go crazy. As long as I recall. I felt a strong and deep connection with books.
The fascination for books was since the time I was 2 years old.
Well, that is what my mother tells me.
She says that I would take a book in my hand and keep ogling at it for hours. Today as an adult I find that bit of trivia about a toddler a little surprising.
That is because these days I do not find children fond of books.
Even kids as young as six months old are rather more intrigued by the smartphones than books. That astonishes me. Because I find the parents of those kids promoting the use of gadgets to their children.
More than astonishing. That actually makes me feel sad.
Anyway. What makes me happy is the fact that there are loads of books around me right now.
I got so many to finish by the time I run out of my latest collection.
The other reason for my happiness is that these days I find products that are for book lovers. I mean the kind of products that are in particular meant for people who love to read.
The fact that they are so designed to fascinate a book lover is what I find interesting. A mention of anything relates to books gets me so excited.
So, I thought of doing a round-up of all the products that I know will intrigue a book lover.
5 beautiful handmade gifts for book lovers in the world
1. Infinity Scarfs
I am a true scarf girl. All my good friends know that they need to gift me a scarf when they want to win me over. I do not know what is with a scarf. But hanging around with one on my neck. I end up feeling a lot more complete.
It does not matter what I wear a scarf on or with. The feel of a fabric layering on my apparel makes me feel good.
I have scarfs in almost all the colors that I can think of. From sea green to navy blue. Off-white to a one with a golden hue on dark black.
Whether it is jeans and a t-shirt. A dress. Or a kurti with leggings. A scarf provides a beautiful overlay to any form of apparel.
But in case the scarf has some beautiful quotes from some classic books. Then, it is more than precious.
To wear an infinity scarf with words from your favorite classic is like hugging the book all the time.
Yeah. It is that way. Look at both these infinity book scarfs to know what I mean.
2. Handmade box made with color pencils
I have seen a lot of handmade boxes made with wood. The ones that are common with fake images depicting royalty.
The tourists carry a lot of them as souvenirs. The wooden boxes serve the utility purposes of storing jewelry or any tidbits.
Those boxes are so common. That is the reason I never buy them for myself. And not even for my friends or family.
Their commonness puts me into a no buying mode.
But when I came across a handmade box made with actual color pencils. I loved it.
I mean I have seen such a miraculous product in Facebook shares. But I had no idea that such a product was accessible for purchase as well.
I always carry a coloring book and coloring crayons in my bag. This box seems to complement those 2 quite well.
3. Adult Coloring Book
The mere mention of colors thrills me to look for a coloring book. And what else can be better than a coloring book out of a classic?
Chances are that as a book lover if you have enjoyed a classic. Then, for sure you will enjoy its counterpart coloring book. This adult coloring book has beautiful images as well as quotes from the book.
The coloring experience will keep you engaged for hours. That alone is a savior for unexpected long waits at airports or appointments.

4. Fashion Badges
If you know someone who likes to leave an impression with their silence. Then, these badges serve the purpose well.
The badges have adorable quotes on them. The quotes are refreshing when compared to the other run-of-the-mill designs.

A must have product if you no longer want to carry your attitude through T-shirts.
A badge stuck to your jacket or backpack can speak louder than you.
5. Handmade Laptop Backpack
To be honest. I gave up on laptop backpacks ages ago. Most of them are in leather. In case the ones that are not from animal skin. Those are either in polyester or some other plastic treated fabric.
So, that makes them bulky. And I end up with shoulder pain.
Since then I am a big advocate of fabric bags. They are lightweight. As well as harmless to skin and to nature.
Not to mention the beautiful literary graffiti is worth an admire. Thus, for sure it makes one of the best handmade gifts for book lovers.
