My Holiday Gift Guide for Librarians
It's Black Friday and I seem to have gift buying on the brain. Thanks to Bev Butula for sharing with me the Holiday Gift Guide for Lawyers. Lots of fun stuff -- I agree with Bev that the Personalized Lawyer Figurines are particularly cool.
But why should lawyers get all the cool gifts? So - I present to you my Holiday Gift Guide for Librarians!
- Action Figures
What librarian wouldn't love a librarian action figure? Modeled after real-life librarian, Nancy Pearl, the librarian action figure is complete with shushing action. I recommend getting the deluxe model which comes computer and book cart.
And did you know that Batgirl was a librarian? Of course, she has her own action figure, too. "Barbara Gordon transforms from librarian to crime-fighter Batgirl with a flip of her cowl!" Check out the book under her arm. ALA also has a Batgirl poster.
- Books (books for a librarian - how novel!)
There are a bunch of fun books that feature librarians - too many to list. Here are a couple of fun ones: The Librarian from the Black Lagoon, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians, & How I Fell in Love with a Librarian and Lived to Tell About It.
SecretStorageBooks.com sells hollowed-out, recycled books in which to hide your treasures. I've always thought these were so cool. There is even a selection of law books featuring various state codes and treatises.
For other book related gifts, Levenger sells a section of "Tools for Serious Readers"
- Kitschy Stuff
Looks like the library enthusiasts have been busy over at CafePress.com, a site which allows anyone to create and sell custom products. They have a ton of kitschy librarian stuff.
Wouldn't the librarian-in-your-life look great with a tattoo? Well, maybe these temporary librarian tattoos anyway.
- Classy Stuff
ForCounsel.com, a site featuring gifts for lawyers, has a beautiful framed Librarian Stamp Collection. All stamps are guaranteed authentic and date from 1940 to the present.
Anyone else have any fun librarian gifts to recommend? If so, please share in the comments.
