It’s Day 13 in the #WonderlandBookChallenge and the prompt for the day is “Ornament – Favorite Bookish Merch.” I do a LOT of scrolling on Etsy, so I thought this would be a good time to put together my Bookish Wishlist. These are the stores and items I keep coming back to, eventually talking myself out of buying them for whatever reason. 

Ultimately this is one big hint for my husband. 😉 

If you have other stores or items you want to share, please list them in the comments! I’m always looking for new fun things to treat myself or friends/family to. 

Laptop Stickers

You cannot go wrong with a good laptop sticker, or just stickers in general. I spend too much time flipping through Instagram trying to find the perfect one, so here’s a fun mystery pack that eliminates my need to make any kind of decision. 

Coffee Mugs

There is no such thing as too many coffee mugs. My husband definitely disagrees, but he’s often wrong. The possibilities are unlimited when it comes to the perfect coffee mug, but I found two I really liked on Etsy. As a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan, the Stars Hollow mug immediately caught my eye. Then, of course, is the book dragon mug I saw, lost the link, then spent a millenia looking for the exact same one again. 

Coloring Books

Fun fact – one of my favorite things to do in my, very limited, free time is color! I have my own set of “not for toddler” color pencils and a few coloring books. It just feels so nice emptying your brain every once in a while, and that’s what coloring does for me. It also makes me feel artistic, which I am not. This year definitely needs some positive vibes, so the choice for coloring book felt natural. 


Candles. Candles. Candles. When you are ever in doubt, just buy me a candle. They are all over my house and used OFTEN. I am constantly using them until they won’t light anymore and heading out to get new ones. To stick with the bookish theme, here are some cute bookish candles from Briarwick. Couldn’t just pick one, so it’s the link to the whole store. 

Stores Mentioned Above:

  • EmilyCromwellDesigns – Seriously perfect Lisa Frank vibes with this one
  • MirkwoodScribes (pictured) – This one just feels so adventure-y and cozy, I love it
  • Briarwick – For all of your candle needs 
  • HopesPallette (pictured) – I spent HOURS looking through all of the adorable stickers in this shop
  • The PaintboxLetters (pictured) – More beautiful stickers and artwork for your bookish whims 
  • IncrediblePrintShop (pictured) – Can’t get enough stickers, so here’s another one full of perfect stickers and artwork
