Gift certificate to The Bookshop

Nothing looks better on a bookshelf than some tattered, well-loved books. What's better than picking out older books for someone else? Having them pick for themselves. We don't think there's any better place in town to hunt for second-hand books than The Bookshop, 6018 North 16th Street. Get a gift card for however much you want and let your book lover get lost between The Bookshop's shelves while hunting for that perfectly worn copy of To Kill a Mockingbird.

Wooden Owl Bookends from For the People

Full disclosure: We're not actually sure these adorable wooden owl sculptures are meant to be bookends. But we asked the helpful man working in For the People and he agrees that they would totally work. We say, go for it. And there isn't a bookshelf in the world that wouldn't look better with two of these guys propping up beloved copies of favorite stories. We think the medium sized owls ($74 each) would work best, but these can be purchased in three different sizes at For the People in UNION at Biltmore Fashion Park, 2502 East Camelback Road.
