Gifts for Book Lovers

Do you have a friend or family member that loves books with a birthday coming up? Are you already looking ahead to gift ideas for next Christmas? I have compiled a list of items to get your book-obsessed friend. I have listed them from least expensive to most expensive.

Floral Resin Bookmarks ($12.00)

These floral resin bookmarks are by CurlUpCollective on Etsy, and they are a great low-cost gift to give to your book lover friend. It can be customized to the colour of flowers you want. I love the detail of the gold foil to add a little something special.

Book of the Month Subscription ($12.50-$16.67)

Deciding what book to read next is the hardest part. Book of the Month is a subscription service that offers you five titles each month and ships you the one of your choosing. Can’t decide just one? You can add on more at an additional cost. This is a great way to fill out your bookshelf.

Classic Literature Tea ($19.75)

Is there anything better than curling up with a cup of tea and a good book? Maybe a tea based on a book? Choose between Pride and Peppermint or Anne of Green Tea Gables. Each loose-leaf tea also comes with a bookmark.

Blind Date With a Book ($20.41)

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Or the back cover. Blind date with a book sends you second hand books wrapped up with a little teaser of what it entails. This is a perfect way to be introduced to books that may not catch your eye immediately. This is great for a friend who is looking for something new or interesting. You can also submit genre preferences to make sure it is a great fit.

Reading Socks ($20.50)

Nothing better than getting all cozy while reading a book. These reading socks are the perfect way to stay warm while staying up late binge reading. These are the perfect gift for the friend that always wants to be comfy.

Book Inspired Candle ($26.43)

This candle is described as being “inspired by that feeling you get when you start a new book and know that enchantment is awaiting you with every new page you turn”. This is a great gift for someone who loves to burn a candle while cozying up with a book, or someone who just loves fairytales.

Wooden Bathtub Tray ($36.99)

This bathtub caddy is the perfect way to relax in the bathtub, with a spot for a wineglass, a place to prop up a tablet or book, and a spot for a candle. This is great for your friend that needs to relax and wants to experience ultimate comfort while reading a book .

Concrete Bookend and Vase ($48.00)

These bookends are the cutest decor piece to give as a gift. They look great with books and can be used to hold functional things or flowers. This is great for a friend that is looking to display their books while adding a little something extra.

Kobo Libre H2O ($199.99)

If you have a friend that has way too many books, an eReader is a great gift. Once I got mine, I rarely switch back to hardcopies. This eReader is waterproof, so it’s perfect for the bathtub or hot tub. It can hold an endless amount of books while still being light in a bag.

Tree Branch Shelf ($457.82)

If you’re looking on splurging on a gift, this book shelf is a beautiful and functional wall piece. It can fit quite a few books on it, without looking like a plain, normal shelf. This is great for someone who wants a more individual piece of decor to show off their collection.

I hope you found something on this list that would be perfect for a friend or for yourself!
