Our Collection of Books & Gifts

You can also choose from a selection of gifts, greeting cards, cross-stitched and crocheted items as well as general LGBTQIA+ and literary geekery. Every book and item available at Shelf Lovers has been carefully selected and handpicked because we think it might be of help or bring someone a little joy. Items have been sourced from a variety of suppliers to make it easier for readers, educators and health and support workers to access these unique and valuable resources all in the one place.
