Welcome back to my itsy bitsy corner of the web! I am so excited because today will be my first #blogmas post of the month! I have a bunch of posts coming up soon and I will try my best to be consistent!
Today’s blog post is going to be a Christmas gift guide! Unsure what you want for Christmas or what to get your friends and family? This guide should be able to help! Also, a great way to support me and get gifts you want is to send this post to your family and friends! That way my post gets more views and you can get more of the gifts that you actually want! ( notice my sly marketing aha!)
But, enough of my rambling, let’s get started!!
📖Gifts for bibliophiles and book dragons📖
As the days pass by more and more book dragons (they are like bookworms but more vicious!) are being born. Soon the book dragons will take over the world! Are you a book dragon? Or do you have one in your family? This list should help you out!
📖 books! Now, this may seem like an easy gift, yet there are many ways this goes wrong! Bookish people tend to be picky, so if you are buying a book as a gift for someone, consider there favorite genres or authors. Although I am thankful for any gift, I feel a bit annoyed when someone buys me a random book that doesn’t align with my bookish interests and isn’t written very well. So short story long, if your buying a book for someone, buy a book that THEY would want to read!
📖Barnes and Noble gift card! This is a ridiculously easy gift that any book nerd would love! You don’t have to spend hours picking the perfect book because they can pick it themselves! Plus they can buy more than books including merch, movies and even coffee! It’s a great gift!
📖 Book Merch! There’s only one thing that book dragons like more than books. BOOK MERCH!! Merch, (short for merchandise) is a great gift! Merch can range from coffee cups to backpacks to t-shirts to notebooks! So if there’s a certain book series your book dragon is talking about all the time, consider buying merch for them!
✍🏾Gifts for the aspiring authors✍🏾
Ahh, I don’t have a long intro for this so let’s just dive into the gifts!
✍🏾journals! Every author starts off with an idea, and the best way to get your idea down is to have a journal! When I say journal I don’t mean a basic one from Walmart, I’m talking about a cute journal! You can even make a decorate a random one and collage photos of things someone might like!
✍🏾 Scrivner! Scrivener is a word-processing program and outliner designed for authors. Scrivener provides a management system for documents, notes, and metadata. This allows the user to organize notes, concepts, research and whole documents for easy access and reference. I’ve never used it, but my dad does and says that it works really well! This is a great gift for a writer who wants to get serious!
✍🏾mugs! Writers love mugs. Mugs store the fuel that helps them write and survive the fictional and real-world! To spice things up, get a cool mug that has a pun or a cute design on it and fill it with their favorite teas, coffees, candies, you name it!
💄Gifts for the fashionistas and beauty gurus💄
💄glossier! Glossier is a popular makeup/ skincare brand that is cute and all-natural (I think) I have only tried there face wash and lip gloss! They have a lot of great reviews and a cute design!
💄a gift card to there favorite clothing store! I highly recommend this over buying clothes for someone! You may not get them exactly what they want, so why not give them a gift card so they can pick out something they really want!
(yeah that’s all I don’t know a lot about makeup and fashion XD)
🎨Gifts for artists🎨
🎨 Ohuhu brush tip markers! Ohuhu markers are great markers for any artist! I love them so much. They recently have come out with brush tip markers! They are inexpensive but have outstanding quality!
🎨 Sketchbooks! Sketchbooks are great gifts! As an artist, I use up my sketchbooks very quickly, so its a pretty nice gift to give!! I recommend Canson XL mixed media sketchbooks, you can use any medium in it!
🎨 Drawing Tablet! This is great for someone who likes to do digital art! DRawing tablets can range from large to small and there are so many inexpensive yet good quality ones on amazon! I recommend the brands Huion and Wacom!
📸Gifts for Bloggers, Vloggers, and Photographers!📸
📸A domain! A domain is a great gift for a blogger! A domain allows the blogger to have a .com url instead of a wordpress.com or a blogspot.com website
📸 a camera! A camera is a great gift! There are so many different types and not all are super expensive! Right now I use a Canon Elph Powershot!
📸 adobe! Adobe is great for editing photos, editing videos and creating designs! Getting an adobe membership is a great gift for content creators!!
🎭 Gifts for the Theatre Geeks🎭
🎭 tickets to a musical! This is probably the best gift you could ever give to them! Make sure to give them tickets to a musical they would like or have rambled about all day. If its a random musical about birds they might not be pleased!
🎭playbills! playbills are fun to collect and a great gift for a theatre geek! Give them some from there favorite musicals!
🎭merch! From Hamilton T-shirts to custom Hadestown funko pops, there are so many different kinds of merch!
