If your Mom has a library of her own, already, here are some non-book suggestions:


Get your mom an organic Garden-in-a-Jar! She can grow Mint, Cilantro, and Basil from a mason jar. Just add water and leave it in the sun. Before you know it your mom will have fresh herbs for salads, cocktails, or garnish for the dinner you’ll be cooking her (wink wink, nudge nudge). We have the organic mint jars available in our store!


These lovely earrings are by Made From Books — a company that creates beautiful and unique jewelry from—you guessed it—books! These pieces are perfect for the book-loving mom in your life. We have a selection of earrings and necklaces available in our store.


This bag from Out of Print is perfect for the mom that spends all her time at the library (or the bookstore!). We have this design, along with many others (including shirts) available in our store!
