Literary Book Gifts is a fun website to browse, especially for readers and lovers of books. You can order t-shirts and tote bags from a huge variety of reading, writing, and classic literature-related illustrations and titles.
Shirts comes in a large number of colors and sizes, too. The women’s t-shirts, hoodies, and tank tops come in sizes XS to 3XL, the men’s/unisex t-shirts and hoodies come in sizes S to 5XL. These are excellent quality, Gildan-brand heavy t-shirts of 100 percent cotton (the women’s tanks are 60/40 cotton and poly). Even the tote bags come in S, M, and L sizes!
I could never choose a favorite (or even a top ten), so I went with one for my husband. I ordered the “War and Peace” shirt in Texas Orange at right (go UT Longhorns!) and ordered a 2XL, figuring it would shrink a little. It didn’t. Turns out that’s okay because hubby has a 2XL tummy. (LOL)
The t-shirt looks exactly like the one in the store picture; in fact, the color is richer in person. The shirt machine washed and dried very well, although the 100-percent cotton meant it wrinkled a little after I left it in the dryer for a bit. Okay, I actually left it in the dryer for a few hours. Oops!
The only thing about the site I didn’t like was the sizing charts. They give the measurements of the actual t-shirt, but not the measurements of the wearer. This can make it a little difficult to know which size to order unless you run and measure your favorite fitting shirt. However, Melissa does add hints in the product descriptions if the product runs large or small, which is quite helpful.
Because the site is using Shopify, the ordering process was super easy and my transaction went very smoothly. Melissa was easy to contact and replied to my message right away. Thank you for the great service!
