Hi guys! I’m so excited for Christmas! Only 10 days left! This post is for all of the last-minutes shoppers out there who don’t know what to by for their book-loving friends, and it’s also to give those book loving friends ideas on what to buy themselves. Sometimes you just need to give gifts to yourself, you know? You deserve it. None of the gifts on this list are books, because it’s hard to pick out books for people, plus books are something that are enjoyed every day of the year. For chritsmas its fun to receive a cool, unique and thoughtful gift. So lets get into this list of awesome gifts for the book lover in your life.
I have one of these and love it! It basically imprints a customizable design into your books and lets everyone know who it belongs to;)) It’s a really nice touch, especially if you have some favourite books that you know you’ll keep forever and want to personalize them. The ones that I saw online range from $25 to $75, but I’m sure that you could find cheaper ones on Etsy or Amazon.
Transparent Book Weight
I think that this is super cool and really useful. It holds the pages of your book down for a hands free reading experience! This would also be great for cookbooks. I could do so much more reading if I had one of these… I could read while cooking, getting ready in the morning….. I think I need one. The one I looked at was $15.
My eyes have adapted to reading in almost all conditions, because I refuse to stop reading even in the darkness (long car rides in the night are the worst!). I could definitely use another reading light; actually I need more than one beacuase it would be good if I could keep one in my school bag, one in my room and one in the car. This one is a great stocking stuffer and also, your friend’s eyeballs will thank you. I’m pretty sure that you can find these at the dollar store for, like, a dollar.
Clip On Bookmark
Yet another contraption that would make my life a heck of a lot easier. Bookmarks are really handy but when I take them out to continue reading, I forget to put them back in again. This bookmark clips on to your book so that you don’t forget to mark your page. Although I have gotten pretty good at memorizing numbers. See, this is why people need to read; it gives you night vision and a super awesome memory. The bookmark above is $30, but I bet if you dug a bit deeper you could find one for cheaper (hey that rhymed), or you could make your own.
Owl Crate Subscrption
I found out about Owl Crate a few months ago and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the concept; each month, they’ll send you a box that includes a book and a bunch of book-related goodies that are created by small businesses. It’s a great idea and I would personally love one of these boxes! You can purchase a 1 month, 3 month or 6 month subscrption.
Mugs are the perfect gift for the person who loves to curl up with a good book and a cup of coffee, cocoa or tea. There are tons of cute and funny bookish mugs out there- the one in the picture above was given to me by a friend and it’s so awesome!
“1000 Books To Read Before You Die” Page-a-Day Calendar
This calendar looks friggin’ amazing! Everyday you rip out a page and get a new book reccomendation! This is a gift that book lovers can cherish for the whole year and guess what? It’s only $17 on Amazon!
These look really interesting and I might incorporate something like this into my bullet journal next year. It’s a book that includes reading suggestions, pages to write reviews, and to keep track of what you’ve read. This is is great gift for the organized reader. It’s $8 on Amazon.
That should keep your voracious reader friends happy! I would love if I got any of these gifts so if my family is reading this HINT HINT WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE. Hope the rest of your weekend is great and I’ll see you next week!
