Reading under the influence can bring a new perspective to an old favorite book. Kind of like the time I realized it best made sense to read James Joyce’s Ulysses the way he wrote it – inebriated. If your favorite book lover also enjoys a bevvy every now and then, consider this: an upcycled vintage book, complete with flask. By Talia Halliday via Uncommon GoodsCost: $56.

Words and art are at least as married as authors and coffee. Any lover of the aesthetic (and rather sensible books) will appreciate a gift from Litographs.com. They sell posters, shirts, and tote bags made out of treasured words from classic and contemporary works – with over 100 different options to choose from. Shirts and totes feature wraparound art. Pictured: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. (Whoops, if you know me, this could be a hint.) Regular price: $34.00 for shirts. Cyber Monday 2014 sale: Up to 40% off.
