Bookish Goodies Vol. 3

The Lord of the Rings Edition!

Okay folks, this Bookish Goodies guide is going to show off my nerdier side. My family are HUGE fans of The Lord of the Rings...and basically anything by J.R.R. Tolkien. My son requested I do a few Lord of the Rings posts, as he and his sister are currently going through a LOTR "phase" again. This just means that my television is playing a nonstop loop of commentary, special features and movies at the moment. So, with my current gift giving ideas in mind, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite Lord of the Rings items found on Etsy!

Engraved Door Hanger 
I love the idea of this door hanger from AllyBoosCreations for $18.95. This is an easy gift in my opinion, one that any LOTR fan would enjoy...and friendly to your pocket book! I have seen a few others that were a little more complicated, but cost a whole lot more. This would look great with a "No Admittance Except on Party Business" Doormat.

Leather Passport Cover
I absolutely adore this passport cover from CurtisMatsko for $24+. It is the perfect reminder to travel, travel and travel some more. This is a great unisex gift for the world traveler in your family, and the quote is one of my favorites.

Lord of the Rings Posters
I have seen many posters and art prints dedicated to LOTR, but I think this is one from HarknettPrints for  $10.24+ is my favorite set. These would look awesome in a media room and they don't look too "movie poster" like. Framed I think they would actually look pretty classy!

Lord of the Rings Mug
I resisted the urge to choose the coffee mug saying "Was your ass forged by Sauron because it sure looks precious" and instead decided to go a bit classier with this one from ArtsPrint for $10.32+. I think this is a beautiful coffee mug, and it would look amazing sitting on your desk at work. A way of showing your LOTR allegiance without looking too low brow.

Lord of the Rings 2017 Calendar
My son is a HUGE fan of maps, and this calendar from QuantumPrints for $8.96+ merges the need for a calendar with the art of a Middle Earth map. The art work is just amazing.

Lord of the Rings Coaster Set
There are coasters, and then there are miniature pieces of art in coaster form. This set from JamestheFish for $20 is definitely Art. From the Tree of Gondor to the inscription on the One Ring, these are almost too pretty to place drinks on!

Lord of the Rings Art Print
I have what can best be described as a "thing" for art printed on the pages of books and sheet music. This piece from AmourPrints for $10 merges the music from Howard Shore's Concerning Hobbits with beautiful Rivendell artwork. I think it's just gorgeous.

Lord of the Rings Phone Case
This phone case from KayPopArt for $30.36 is a conversation piece. If I could live in any area of Middle Earth it would be Hobbiton (these are the sort of conversations I have with my kids at home). I would greatly enjoy a hobbit hole! The case is adorned with book pages and beautiful art, and what better way to show your personality than an incredibly cool phone case!

Lord of the Rings Watercolor Print
This is my other favorite style of art found on Etsy. From GenefyPrints for $9.86+ you can get this beautiful art piece of The Fellowship. This brightly colored print would look terrific in a kids room or an office. (I think it would look great perched on a book case filled with Tolkien books and Funko Pop dolls personally).

Lord of the Rings T-Shirt
I have already bought my son a few LOTR t-shirts, and this one from CoryFreemanDesign for $18+ would make a terrific addition to his collection. I think he has one with the Tree of Gondor on it, and another Prancing Pony beer shirt I believe. The artwork on this Entmoot Maple Mead shirt is incredible.

And one extra item just for the mommies and daddies!!

Lord of the Rings Bib
This baby bib from KayNoel for $7 is a must have for little Tolkien fans. Mommies and Daddies...Grandmas and Granpas...this is such a cute bib for your little ones! And what little cutie doesn't love Second Breakfast?

So there you have buying guide of gifts for the Lord of the Rings fan in your life. It was very hard to narrow my list down to 11. If you were to look at my Etsy wishlist you would see tons more! Are you a fan of Tolkien's work? Are you a fan of the movies by Peter Jackson? I'd love to hear your thoughts either in the comments here or over on my Facebook page!
