The weather outside is frightful, and the fire is so delightful – so I’m doing all my Christmas shopping online! Here’s a selection of lovely things that book lovers might enjoy. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

I will let the makers of Personal Library Kits explain their benefits: ‘It is frustrating to lend books and never see them again. With this kit, both you and the borrower will be able to keep tabs on whose it is / who has it. And don’t we all have ‘Shhhh’ fantasies about being the librarian doing the stamping? Give it to: The ‘forgetful’ member of your book club. Includes 20 adhesive pockets and checkout cards, date stamp and inkpad.’ Sold.

Be Sherlock Holmes! 221b Baker Street is my favourite board game. It’s like Cluedo, but with extra intrigue plot twists.

For the classiest of festive drinks parties, I present the literary coaster set from Bookish.
