Gifts for the Bookworm in Your Life

It’s that time of year again! Have you bought all of your holiday gifts yet? Do you have a bookworm on your list that you aren’t sure what to get? Have you found yourself saying something like, “You’re always reading, so I don’t know what books to get you that you haven’t already read or bought for yourself!”

I have great news for you…you don’t have to buy them books! I have compiled a list here for you, along with some great places to find these things, of gifts that any bookworm is likely to love!

It is almost guaranteed that a book lover will always welcome more bookmarks in their life! The fun thing about this is that there are so many different kinds of bookmarks! You can find personalized ones for practically any interest, or you can just find one that you think is beautiful. No matter what, this should be a hit. (Also, these make great stocking stuffers!)

Now, at first this might seem like a strange choice. However, I can assure you that any book lover would love to have a beautiful candle to set out while they are reading. Also, there are so many book themed candles on Etsy!

Oh, we do love our bookish merch! Get them a t-shirt with the cover of a book they love on it. Get them a sweatshirt that has a funny bookish pun. Find a shirt that pays homage to a favorite author.

Book Pillows

Something that I think every book reader needs is a book pillow. There are many different kinds of book pillows out there. Some are shaped to contour to your body and provide a lovely way to prop up your book so you don’t get a kink in your neck. Some have special stands that can work for a book or a tablet. Pretty much any kind of book pillow will be better than no book pillow at all!

Book Sleeves

Do you have a loved one who is always bringing a book with them wherever they go? Why not get them a book sleeve that will help protect those precious pages from getting banged up in their bag?

Book Journals/Planners

I can personally never get enough of these! I love to track my reading every year. Doing so in a specialized book planner or journal is a lovely way to look back on reading years past. These are also a great way for the organized book nerd to plan out their next reading year.

Bookish Stickers

These kind of go along with the planners and journals, but you can slap a bookish sticker on pretty much anything! Bonus, these also make great stocking stuffers!

Two things that go hand in hand are reading and having a warm mug of something yummy. Bookish mugs are a super safe bet for any book lover in your life!

Art Prints

Hanging bookish art in your reading space is a wonderful way to decorate your home library or office! If you aren’t sure what specific books someone likes, get them a scratch off poster with a variety of books on it. Now it is art and an activity! Win, win!
