#16 All the shiny things
Bookmans has so many cute, pretty and unique jewelry items and accessories. My personal faves are the Wildflower earings that kinda look like Christmas trees with little fringes on them. Hint hint hint 😉
#17 Marvel Puzzle
Not only does this puzzle feature like a billion characters we know and love but it also looks really hard. Which we all know is the best kind of puzzles. The nerds will go nuts for this super duper challenge.
#18 Grit for Girls book
Okay, I don’t know totally what this book is about but I love its overall vibe. I mean Grit for Girls! Sign me up. This would make an awesome gift for any nieces or cousins on your list. Let them know how cool they are.
#19 An Out Of Print tote
So there is definitely a theme with this list. Super Cool Nerdy Things Your Biblio Heart Will Love. I mean it’s obvious, right? So, of course, we are going to include these extremely bookishly adorable totes. #BooksTurnMugglesIntoWizards. Obvi.
#20 Tranny by Laura Jean Grace
Got someone on your list who love music? Get them this incredibly compelling bio about Laura Jean Grace, lead singer of the band Against Me. Not only is she an amazing musician but she is also the first visible person in the punk rock word to come out as transgender. She’s really cool and her book is an awesome read.

Peruse the many options or ask a Bookmans employee to help design your own!
#23 His Dark Materials Box Set
Bookmans has tons of collectors editions or box sets to choose from but we really dig the His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman one. This set has all three books of course and really cool cover art for each one. Pick it up for avid fans or budding readers.
#24 Star Wars Nesting Doll
These dolls are so cute and would be a huge hit among baby Star Wars fans or as we like to call them at Bookmans, Padawans… Much more popular among parents than the ever-dangerous toy lightsabers. But don’t worry we have those too 😉
