I love to read and always have 2 or 3 books on the go so I’ve built up quite a collection of kawaii bookmarks. They’re useful, cute and also make a great personal addition to a bookish gift. Here’s some favourites you can buy or make yourself.
I adore these matching clip bookmarks by LOVESOUP (Japan) featuring a girl reading about cats and a cat reading about hoomans! They look so shiny and detailed too.
Go DIY with this super cute tutorial for animal bookmarks by Ayelet Keshet including a printable file. You don’t even need a colour printer as you use coloured card and paint on pink cheeks!
Are you always leaving books half-read to try something new? This pack of cat paw bookmarks at ASAMI Japan (HK) has 30 designs to choose from so should keep you going for a while.
If you there’s a fantasy/YA book, anime, film, or TV show you love, there’s a very good chance Happy Hello (Canada) will have a cute magnetic bookmark of your favourite characters. There’s so many obscure titles I’ve never even heard of plus more familiar kawaii classics like these Ghibli-inspired cuties.
