She created DIY gifts around Alice in Wonderland, The Martian and His Dark Materials and this got me thinking, what other gifts can be centered around a book? A jar of lemon sherbets for the Harry Potter lover in your life? Or maybe a green booklight for a Gatsby-themed gift? How about Delicious Death, the chocolate cake used as murder weapon in Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced? Though that maybe too macabre, it might just get you through the holiday stress; the possibilities are endless.
