Bookish Gift Ideas Under $15

Let's face it, the holidays are an expensive time. All the food, drinks, celebrations, decorations, donations, the gifts, and the most dreaded item... the electricity bill.

Things around the holidays can get out of hand pretty quickly. Especially if you're on a tight budget.

To help with your shopping this year, I've put together a quick list of things that may be of interest to those on a budget, but just can't help themselves when it comes to gift giving.

    Thanks so much for featuring our Magic Wand Pencils! Sadly they've all sold out (they're super popular!) and they will never be made again. But we will be doing a tutorial soon on how you can make your very own, so keep your eyes open for that :)
