Ah, the holidays! Or, as we like to call it here at Enya’s Attic, the do-nothing-but-eat-and-read-days!

Still, while we might hope to be given enough books to see us through to the New Year (at least!!) it’s nice to get other gifts too. 

So, that’s why we’ve put together a fun and interesting gift guide for book-loving women – that aren’t actually books.

There’s a number of reading-related items such as our mini-reading light, perfect for that midnight just-one-more-chapter moment!

And we’ve also added in accessories that put some of the most important women writers in history front and center.
