The holidays are right around the corner! It’s almost time to dust off the decorations, light up the pine-scented candles, and put up a Christmas tree. I don’t know about you, but I love throwing random knick-knacks on my tree that make me happy and remind me of things — or people — I love. And one of those things is books! I thought that book-inspired ornaments were hard to come by, but I was also unaware of the magic of Etsy. I just recently discovered that there is a wide variety of bookish ornaments in their online store and I’m in love. They are creative, unique — and quite frankly stunning! I swear, the people who make these things are artists. Plus, there’s a wide variety of styles and materials you can choose from to match the theme of any Christmas tree. And, mini-spoiler: some of them are even personalized and/or customizable!
I know that there can be a dizzying amount of ornaments and decorations out there — Etsy is huge! So it can be hard to choose. But don’t worry. I’ve put together this list of 12 bookish ornaments that will make you say “Take my money!” so that you can fill your tree with as many book-inspired things as you want.
