With the holidays right around the corner, many people are rushing around town checking items off their gift lists and hoping Santa can make it to everyone. You might have every present figured out except for one — the reader in your friend group or family. You’re not quite sure what books they read, but you know it’s all they do, so you want to get them a present on that theme. Luckily, there are tons of literary gifts out there for the bookworm in your life! Things like custom made bookmarks or even a gift card to their favorite book store can go a long way!
There are a plethora of knick-knacks and novelties both online and at local shops celebrating the joy of reading. And the best part is every reader will enjoy them! For example, you could get a set of buttons from their favorite book (if you know it) or general ones that say things like “one more chapter” or “All I need is tea and books.” These are a fun way for readers to express themselves and share their joy of literature. There are also plenty of things that celebrate famous novels, such as a first lines coffee mug featuring famous first lines of a cache of classic works. You could even gift them a personalized embosser to place their name in their favorite books or indicate which were favorites.
Kits and Caboodles
If you’re looking for something a little bigger than a novelty gift, you can consider giving a personal library kit to the friend you borrow all your books from. This allows those most generous readers to label each book and keep track of who’s borrowing what. It’s a great gift for the most organized and gracious bibliophile. Perhaps you like this idea but are in the market for something simpler, in which case you could opt for a simple personalized book stamp. If you know a reader who’s also a drinker, things like the Tequila Mockingbird cocktail book can be a great way to honor both facets of their personality. Or if you want to give them a gift that keeps on giving, sign them up for a book of the month club!
There are tons of Christmas options for the reader in your life, from the small and humorous to larger and useful, so check out your options and find the perfect gift today!
