7 Gift Ideas for Book Lovers

Christmas time’s a-coming! If there is a book lover on your list, then you might be wondering what to get them. Lucky for you–and anyone else in this predicament, book lovers are easy to please!

How could we not want to go above and beyond to reward book lovers for their happy-go-lucky nature when it comes to receiving presents? Here are some ideas for the book lover in your list:

  1. Bookmarks – It might seem like the obvious choice, but we book lovers can’t ever have too many bookmarks. I use mine in both books I’m reading, and notebooks I’m using to jot down ideas for my next writing project.
  2. Book Light – Show me a book lover, and I will show you someone who stayed up reading past their bedtime. Clip-on book lights allow reading in the darkest of conditions, whether you clip it onto your book or your glasses.
  3. Notebook – A book lover can use a notebook to write down thoughts about their favorite books. And a writer can never have too many notebooks–just sayin’!
  4. Book Art – Sites like Etsy and Uncommon Goods offer unique gifts, a lot of which are handmade by up and coming artists. You can tickle the book lover in your life while simultaneously supporting creative arts.
  5. Gift Cards – I have never known a book lover to turn down a gift card. In the past my family has given me cards for shopping at Amazon, coffee shops, and local bookstores, and I’ve enjoyed them all with equal enthusiasm.
  6. Travel Mug – It’s easy to get lost in a good book, but important to stay hydrated. A travel mug helps solve the problem and if it gets knocked over then the lid means the mug’s contents are less likely to spill on the pages.
  7. Warm Blanket – Last year my mother-in-law gave me a blanket for Christmas. It is not only dog-themed, but it is also made from the warmest fleece I have ever felt in my life. When I curl up on the couch to read on a chilly evening, you can bet I have my blanket with me.

And there you have it! It is no coincidence that writers are also book lovers. If you have a writer on your holiday shopping list, then many of these ideas would work for them as well.
