5 Holiday Gift Ideas for the Sapphic Reader (with coupons)

November 28, 2022 Leave a comment

Have someone in your life you need a gift for who loves sapphic (women loving women) books? Want a few book ideas but also a few ideas that aren’t reads to fill up the gift basket? Look no further, my friends, I’m here to help.

Let’s start with a holiday themed book.

In the Event of Love by Courtney Kae was just released this season, so it’s possible your intended recipient might not have read it. It’s a sapphic holiday small town romance. Think Hallmark movie but queer. Get it on Amazon or Bookshop.org. If you think they’d enjoy having a book club discussion about this read, I have a digital one available.

Whether your intended recipient already has a diversified shelf or not, Solo Dance by Li Kotomi translated from Japanese this year will likely be a welcome addition – provided they enjoy tear-jerkers. Get it on Amazon or Bookshop.org. If you think they’d enjoy having a book club discussion about this read, I have a digital one available.

What reader doesn’t also love notebooks? This blank, lined notebook features a three beautiful fairies that one could easily read in a sapphic manner, and it’s just $5.99.

Announcement: Shop My Halloween Notebooks

For the past few months, I’ve been designing and selling blank, lined notebooks. Each has 100 sheets (200 pages) and is a handy carry size of 6″ wide x 9″ high (slightly larger than A5 size at 152.4mm x 228.6mm). One notebook costs just $5.99.

For most of them, I find vintage art in the public domain then edit and transform it in various combinations into notebook covers. But sometimes I draw the art myself or use public domain images to illustrate a text phrase.

I love Halloween, so to celebrate, I created a line of Halloween themed vintage notebooks.

There’s my series of four rooster themed ones, largely running off of puns and parodies.

Then there’s my series of vintage greeting card inspired Halloween notebooks.

Image labeled Halloween Vintage Greeting Cards Notebooks. Get them: bit.ly/vintgcardhallow, copyright Amanda Nevius. Features three images. One is orange with a witch flying an airplane. One is white with a witch flying an airplane over a cemetary. One is light purple with a little girl holding a jack-o-lantern.

Finally, there’s my vintage style scares series.

Image labeled Vintage Style Scares Notebooks. Get them: bit.ly/vntgscares, copyright Amanda Nevius. Features four images of the covers of notebooks with roosters on them. One is orange with two gray skeletons talking on a telephone style tin can. One has zombie hands rising up on the background of an eerie green wheat field.

I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to see a part of my new notebook adventure. You can browse all of my notebooks, including many non-Halloween ones (like my currently best selling Heart Sutra one) here.
