Here are few gift items you can venture into and create a market for yourself in no time.

Handy Bookmarks:  Going into business to sell bookmarks that are hand signal shaped is a great idea to start with, unlike ordinary bookmarks, your hands do the talking and help you mark the page of any book you are reading while keeping everything together. You can also make bookmarks with author quotes on them or even their portraits.

Clothing: It is true that many people have ventured into the fashion business, however, you can create your own space by making book themed customized outfits.  How wonderful would it be having a quote from Jane Austen, Wole Soyinka, on your t-shirts, scarfs, sweatshirts, socks or even a minimalist bold statement that announces to everyone that the buyer loves books?

Jewelry: Produce enamel pins that would allow your customers feel connected to their favourite authors and books. Customize cufflinks with literary terms would surely tickle one’s fancy of associating his/her career with his accessories, as no introduction would be needed. Have quotes attached to bracelets, or even making earrings in the shape of books. You can also sell organic earrings, by using upcycled book pages to make a pair of delightful folded book leaves.

Tote Bags: A reader can’t do without his or her bags, going to the business of making customized tote bags may be just what you need to tilt the scales. Create wonderful handcrafted bags into magnified hardcover books, which would make it fully functional and yet are attention-grabbing.

Stationery: Talking about books without speaking about its family would be dragging a fish out of its water. Go into business with stationeries advertising themselves, bookish button badges, pencils made with funny books quotes, customized pocket mirror, story cubes and story dice, and even a pencil case, would surely do the magic.
