Poetry Gifts - National Poetry Day

Today is National Poetry Day, and has inspired me to search for poetry related gifts. Poems are a thoughtful way to express thoughts and feelings, so make a gift very personal. So be inspired on National Poetry Day to express you innerself.

From Zazzle you can purchase a variety of poem quotes on mugs such as the one shown, in cards or on coasters.

Not On The High Street have a range of poetry inspired gifts but my favourite has to be this tea towel by Kitchen Sink Dramas with the a poem by Carol Ann Duffy about tea. Great for drying up or framing for the kitchen wall.

Loobytoo on Folksy has used a poem to create a piece of art that would enhance any room. Called 'The mean reds' after a piece from Breakfast at Tiffanys.

On Etsy I found this fantastic calligram designer Joni James who creates poetry in the shape of the object of the poem. I love this apple for the teacher example.

You could also treat someone you know to this Penguin book from Amazon - Poems for Life - which brings together a collection of the best-loved English poems to mark the stages of life from birth to death.

Alternatively, if you are feeling really inspired - and have more poetic talent than I have - then why not write someone an original piece of poetry and create something truely unique.
