The holidays are here, and for many that means decking the halls and spreading holiday cheer with family and friends. If you’re anything like us, that means that you’re super excited to give and receive some awesome book-inspired presents this year. But if you’re someone who isn’t particularly literarily inclined and are trying to find a bookish gift for the avid reader in your life, you may find yourself a bit lost. Finding a present for someone who would rather be reading over anything else can be hard - that’s why we’ve created a bookish holiday gift guide!
We also may or may not have made this list so that we could send it to our friends and family for a not so subtle hint as to what we would like to receive as gifts this holiday season, but that’s beside the point.
William Shakespeare's Star Wars
Is your loved one a classical literature fan who also happens to enjoy nerdy films like Star Wars? If so, then you need to check out William Shakespeare's Star Wars. Revitalized in glorious iambic pentameter, William Shakespeare's Star Wars is truly a masterpiece. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll break out your lexicons to fully appreciate this work of pop literary genius. If you want to complete the trilogy, then check out William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back and William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return. You’re welcome.
I Still Believe in 398.2 Pendant
Some of us want to wave our nerd flags high without drawing too much attention, enter the I Still Believe in 398.2 Pendant. 389.2 is the call number for the fairy tale section in the Dewey Decimal System used throughout the country. This unusual pendant can be worn as a necklace, used as a keychain, or kept as a precious memento. Whether your loved one is spending their days with their prince or princess Charming or battling foes in daring duels of wits, any fairytale lover will appreciate this thoughtful gift.
Time-Turner Special Edition
If your loved one loves Harry Potter with as much enthusiasm as we do, then they’re going to faint when they see this Time-Turner under their tree. This stunning piece of jewelry has been made to be an exact replica of Hermione's Time-Turner from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. With a working miniature hourglass and inner rotating rings, you’ll almost believe that this captivating piece of jewelry can take you back in time. Three turns should do it. But be careful, dangerous things happen to wizards who meddle with time.
Is your loved one always in the middle of their next great novel? Do they keep notepads around the house to jot down ideas when inspiration strikes? But what about in the shower? There’s nothing quite like a hot shower to get your creative juices flowing, but those great ideas can get washed down the drain if you don’t write them down. For these situations, we recommend the Aqua Notes Notepad. It might seem like a silly gift, but these waterproof notes really work! Help your friend or family member keep track of all of their epiphanies with these quirky notepads.
"Do You Even Read?" Mug
Very little goes as well with a good book than a steaming cup of coffee or tea. Unlike others, your friend dazzles onlookers with their high reaching word count as opposed to rep count. They count words, not calories, and they believe in a rigorous reading schedule to train their brain. So seriously, do you even read, bro?
"Open Book. Sniff. Read. Repeat." T-Shirt
To us, there’s nothing weird about cracking open a good book to inhale its intoxicating aroma. From paperbacks to hardcovers; even if you don’t have the time to sit down and read, just taking in the comforting scents of a book can help to put the mind at ease. No matter the genre, length, or quality, the smell of a book is a universal pleasure that can be shared by all.
