Surprise Packages are the Best Kind

Pretty Theory Book Purse

The mailman surprised me with a box from Pretty Theory the other day, all because my mom ordered me a gift on Etsy. She sent me this fabulous book purse, made from an upcycled “Modern Clinical Psychiatry” book that apparently used to live in the State Attorney General’s office in Chicago. Given that I currently live in Illinois and have an interest in all things mental health, this purse was just too perfect! (Thanks, Mom.)

Pretty Theory has a variety of book purses made with books from all sorts of subjects. Right now they have some available for your favorite math nerd or seamstress. They got some other things, like gift tags and necklaces, too. You can keep tabs on Pretty Theory at their blog,

What’s the last gift you surprised someone with? My last one was a beautiful necklace from AntiGenre for my mom.
