We all know at least one book lover (if you don't you probably are one!). What's not to love, to be honest, books offer a world of magic that simply can't be explained! And what a wonderful world of goodies that can be themed around books. This is the perfect gift guide for book lovers. And what's better all items mentioned below are all small UK indie businesses!

2. Well Read Company

This is the perfect small business for any book lover, but especially if your a fan of the classics!
'Well Read Company, founded in 2019, is a designer and manufacturer of luxury handbags, tote bags and wallets inspired by classic literature. The earliest prototypes were loosely inspired by traditional bookbinding techniques and made on a domestic sewing machine at home! Our bestselling collections feature timeless titles such as Pride and Prejudice, Sherlock Holmes, and Alice in Wonderland.'

Their bags are simply stunning, I personally own a few of their tote bags and we currently stock some of the handbags on our own website. They are stunning and so so beautifully made, and such attention to detail! Also how perfect is their tag line...

4. Avocate Crafts

Books are precious things and they deserve the best! They deserve their own perfect little safe space, especially if you are anything like me and books can often be thrown into the depths of a handbag! No I say, get your books a beautiful book sleeve and protect them!!

5. Joyella Design

Yes, I have included myself in this list...because why not! And remember at Joyella Design, we offer a range of items from small UK indie businesses! 
But today I'm going to talk about our very own range of wooden bookmarks...
All of our wooden bookmarks are digitally drawn and then machine engraved and they are amazing! I'm still personally blown away by the detail in these bookmarks! Also what I love about these bookmarks, it that they are long lasting, they are built for those big thick chunky books! 
I hope you've found this blog post helpful for all your book loving friends! Happy reading!
