“I’d really like to smell like Twilight.”

“Oh, like how you imagine Bella smells or something?”

“No, more among the lines of how the Twilight series smells as a whole.”

For the librarian who would like to gross people out, in a very crafty sort of way:

Get this knitting pattern and share the fun of recoiling every time you open a book.

For the librarian who has a baby:

For the librarian everyone avoids:

“You like Harry Potter, right?”

“Yeah.”

“Great! Have this disturbingly lifelike sleeping baby based on an obscure Harry Potter character.”

(world’s longest pause)

“Thanks.”

For the librarian who likes things because they contain the word “librarian”:

The inexplicably named “Librarian Cuffs”. This one is worth checking out for the head-scratchingly in-depth description alone.

For the librarian who likes earrings featuring a guinea pig librarian:

    I kinda like the little bookworm bookmark. My young nieces would really like them. Is there a pattern?

  2. Jennifer says:

    Hey, huge guinea pig fan here. Although…I don’t think I would put those in my ears. Nope. Still, I would definitely sign a petition to have more guinea pigs in libraries. I mean, why cats? Lots of people are allergic to cats (like me). And they just sit there! Guinea pigs are cute and cuddly and make cheerful chirpy sounds and tell stories! Or they do if their name happens to be Olga da Polga.

  3. Oh, I always want people to know I have more education than they do. HA! Must send all my gift-givers to this post.
