Holiday shopping has commenced! Today, I want to give you nothing but the best gift ideas for book lovers. These book-themed gifts are for that friend, partner, colleague, or spouse that loves and consumes all things books. This person may be difficult to shop for all year round, so included here are literary gifts that can be given at special occasion. The hardest part of the list below will be not keeping all these amazing bookish gifts for yourself!
The Best Gift Ideas for Book Lovers
For the jet-setter and traveling book-loving friend, the worst feeling in the world is being a really good part of the book and having the Kindle or eReader shut off due to low battery. A Solar Charger will charge every popular book device: iPad, Kindle Fire, GoPro Camera, e-Cigarettes, e-hookahs, Bluetooth headsets, headphones, Apple watch, Samsung smartwatch, fitness watches, Nike Fitbit, and more.
The Book Lovers Calendar
A gift for that person at the office or on the playground you may not know intimately, but you know they would appreciate facts, quizzes, and quotes about favorite authors, the Book Lovers Calendar is perfect. After all, what book lover would not want to start their day with Harper Lee or Ray Bradbury?
Book Lover Charm Bracelet
This gorgeous bracelet is a classy way to show off a love for books. This book-themed charm bracelet will go perfectly in your book-loving friend’s jewelry box.
Personalized Library Embosser
This is a gift for that avid reader who loves to lend out their favorite titles but does not want to leave any doubt that the book is most definitely to be returned. The Library Embosser is fancy and fun, and can even be a gift for children. This gift can also be helpful if you are a part of a book club that regularly meets.
“My workout is reading in bed until my arms hurt” and other fun bookmarks will be such a fun addition to a bookworm’s bedside table. For all those who read many books simultaneously, quote bookmarks are a must-have gift for keeping your place, and celebrating the fun side of book lovers!
For the ultimate cheesy and fun book gift, choose a MacBook Book Case. Clever and totally usable for everyday life and conversation starters, the MacBOOK case is a wonderful choice!
Stacked Books Ornament
This is a personal favorite to collect ornaments each year. You too can give the book lover in your life this festive holiday stacked books ornament to hang up for bookish decor. A great choice for all ages!
Book Worm Ring
This fully adjustable, hand stamped book ring is a classic. Simple and elegant, it will definitely be a charming gift for any occasion. It is a low profile gift that will definitely be a hit!
Vintage Book Cuff Links
A gift for the sharply dressed and dapper man in your life. These book cuff links give a book lover the opportunity to show off their favorite things literally on their sleeve.
Thumb Ring Page Holder
If your book-loving friends are like me, I read while I multi-task drinking coffee, combing my hair, even makeup application can be done with one hand holding a book. This Thumb Ring Page Holder is perfect for those who never want to put their books down for a minute!
Your and You’re Tea Cups
If you know anyone grammar-obsessed, these are the perfect gift to make them smile while they have their morning tea. Your and You’re Tea Cups will give your grammar-head friend the perfect start to their day with the most commonly misused words. Bonus: these cups use “your” and “you’re” in a sentence correctly on the bottom of the cup.
Bookopoly Board Game
Pass “Read” and Collect $200!!! Who doesn’t love playing monopoly during the long winter months? Instead of houses and hotels, with Bookopoly, you build libraries and book clubs! The book geeks will love you forever as they land their Top Hat piece in jail for “watching too much TV”.
You cannot go wrong with this game: The four railroads are Genres. Electric Co. and Water Works are Imagination and Big Brain. Community Chest and Chance are Knowledge and Explore. Just Visiting is Exercise your Mind. Incredible and educational fun for all.
Personalized Children’s Books
This is a personal favorite of mine. Make the young reader’s dreams come true by reading a book where they get to be the main character! Tim Tim Tom Books has personalized and bilingual book options in 7 different languages. (Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Chinese).
These books not only help children practice language skills, but the book character is customized so the character looks like your child. This added bonus shows a great dedication to equal representation and diversity in children’s literature.
Children’s Reading Journal
The My Reading Adventures Journal offers kids space and prompts to write, draw and reflect on a year’s worth of reading. The journal allows kids to record 52 books—one for every week of the year—as well as completing fun writing and drawing exercises. It’s designed for kids of every age.
Younger kids may choose to complete the book with an adult. For the youngest kiddos, each section provides space to draw responses. Older readers may wish to use the journal on their own or with an adult. They are given the option of drawing and writing to spark their creativity. Get 20% off with the code: BIRACIALBOOKWORMS.
