Here are 10 amazing gift ideas for book lovers that are sure to be memorable:
Personalised mugs are great, but bookish mugs are better! Bookish mugs come in different shapes and sizes, with popular bookish logos and quotes on them. They can be found at your local bookstore or most arts & crafts stores and can even be made yourself.
Journals are great for recording the books you’ve read or just jotting down random thoughts. I know many book lovers who use journals to practice their writing skills too. Munira from A Touch of Starlight loves using journals for her notes and they make great photo props too, cue: #Bookstagram!
T-shirts, pillows and throws with popular bookish quotes are sure-winners for Book Lovers. A new favourite amongst book lovers are scented candles, found at local franchise bookstores or online. If you like monthly themed book subscription boxes (books and different bookish merchandise), check out Fable Crate!
Many bookworms love reading at night. A reading light is a good idea for those who don’t like reading with the room light switched on or don’t have bedside lamps. They also work well for book lovers who like reading on the go (at night of course). I got this clip-on reading light as a gift and it’s been very useful so far!
Everyone loves a good bookmark (except those who fold the corners of the pages like savages). Bookmarks come in different sizes and with bookish quotes, characters or even pretty patterns. You can get them instore at bookstores or bookish merchandise stores online. I made these bookmarks for my blog’s Instagram account.
Do you know someone who has books constantly falling off their shelves? Get them a set of Bookends! Besides holding up falling books, bookends also adds character to anyone’s bookshelf.
Bookish character merchandise
Know a book lover’s favourite book? Then bookish character merchandise is sure to be a memorable gift! For example, Katniss Everdeen’s Mockingjay pendant from the Hunger Games series from The Raven’s Claw or the new Funko Pop Harry Potter character figures from the JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series. These Funko Pop figures have been a huge hit, almost on every book lover’s bookshelf showing off their unique style!
Thumb ring page holder
The thumb ring page holder allows you to hold both pages open wide enough to read a book using only one hand. It’s also pretty useful for those who like drinking tea or coffee. Now you have a free hand to hold your cup without having to close the book!
Bookstore gift card/vouchers
An embosser is a cool gift for someone who lends their books to family and friends. An embossed page in a book is a sure way to remind people who the owner is (then hopefully making it get returned soon after). If you’re buying this for someone, I’d suggest you keep it simple and include their name or blog’s name and contact details like an email address.
If there’s one thing bookworms love getting it’s MORE BOOKS. Find out what books are newly released in their favourite genre or what book they’ve been wanting to buy for ages and get them a copy!
