One of my favourite things to shop for during the holidays are stocking stuffers. Finding small, unexpected gifts to surprise my loved ones with is like the best kind of treasure hunt. I like including everything from the silly to the more practical, and one thing I particularly love to give are enamel pins. Whether you choose to display them on a bag, jacket or display pennant, they can be a fun way to celebrate and show off what you love, and today’s book-themed pins are no exception. If you’re struggling to find the perfect present for the reader or writer on your list this holiday season, the 40 pins featured in this small business gift guide might make a great place to start!
