Book lovers are an easy group to buy for, but locating the perfect gift can be tricky. To help you navigate the shopping process, we’ve divided different types of gifts to give a bookworm into three main categories: reading tools, furniture and home decor, and bookish accessories. Each category provides a list of ideas for the bookworm in your life. These gift ideas are great for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, and any other gift-giving occasion!
People who love books love to read, but they probably already have the books they want to read. Instead of trying to find a new book for them, gift them reading tools they can use over and over again. Reading lights are a good example. They come in a variety of styles, from clip-on models to standing lamps, and they make reading easier. Custom bookmarks, a tote bag for carrying books, or a new pair of reading glasses are great reading tools you can gift.
Furniture and Home Decor
Bookworms must store their books and read them somewhere. Often, they have dedicated shelves and reading nooks for both purposes. Consider gifting them furniture or home decor for these special spots, such as a new wall shelf that makes their books look like they’re floating or a character-themed blanket. Bookends, a reading bucket list poster, or a book-themed candle are also great ideas that your bookworm will love.
Most people want to wear items that represent what they love, such as university sweatshirts or hometown T-shirts. Bookworms often feel the same. Try to find a bookish accessory or piece of clothing related to their favorite books or characters. If you’re not sure what they want to wear or can’t find the theme you’re looking for, buy a bookish accessory that celebrates reading in general. For example, a miniature book on a necklace chain or a sweatshirt stating “I read banned books” are both fun options.
There are many different types of gifts to give a bookworm, and true book lovers will appreciate any of them. If you love the bookish candle idea, consider one of Frostbeard Studio’s hand-poured soy candles. You can find ones that celebrate specific books or that fit the vibe of reading, such as Reading At The Cafe.
