The holidays can be a time of cheer and merriment for many, but the season's greetings can be trampled rather quickly when forced to wade through an anxious crowd of shoppers all trying to score the best sales. That’s why many turn to online shopping. Between Black Friday (more like grey Thursday), Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, many stores will be vying to grab your holiday bonus as you shop for your friends and family. And few see as much success as Amazon.
Now we’re not saying that this is a bad thing; far from it! In fact, we offer our very own Black Friday sale by offering 15% our entire stock to welcome in the holiday shopping rush. But aside from our own unique book inspired candles, you can find tons of fun things to buy on Amazon – including book related gifts – this holiday season. Here are just a few of our favorite gifts for book readers that you can buy online right now.
Now, we might be biased, but we think that our candles are pretty darn nifty. Plus, most of our stock is available on Amazon, making adding any of our bookish scents to your order simple! You can find fragrances inspired by your favorite literary works among our offerings, including those representing your favorite wizarding houses or classic fantasy destinations.
