Etsy is a treasure trove for book-lovers, because you can pretty much find items inspired by any book you love. From classics to YA to bestsellers, the artists on Etsy have you got covered. They’ve got everything from Harry Potter-inspired candles to literary-inspired t-shirts, so if you need to think of a gift idea for a reader (or you’re a lit-lover making a wish list), Etsy should be your one stop shop. Plus, if you prefer to DIY your own goods, Etsy is a great place to find inspiration. Just browsing the fantastic book-inspired clothing, jewelry, home goods, and miscellaneous items always inspires me to make my home and wardrobe just a little more literary.
Of course, you don’t have to choose a specific book when shopping for Etsy merchandise. Maybe your favorite book changes by the day, or you’re shopping for a friend and can’t quite recall their current favorite novel. Not to worry: the beauty of this site is that there are plenty of items perfect for any book-lover. Just loving books is enough of a prerequisite to love the following items. Here are a few of my favorite book-inspired Etsy finds that every lit-lover will instantly add to their shopping cart.
1. Book Stamp
If you love lending out your books but you always want them to find their way home, this is the perfect Etsy find for you. Personalize this book stamp and mark the first page of your books, so your library will always make it back to you in the end.

2. Reading At The Cafe Candle
Book-inspired candle scents are one of my obsession, and this "reading at the cafe" candle (with the scent of chocolate and coffee) is perfect for when you can't make it to the coffee shop, but you still want the full effect.

10. Book Purse
I will never buy a purse unless it's big enough to fit a book inside, because otherwise, what's the point? Of course, you could always just buy a purse that is a book. That works too.
