9 perfect gifts for book lovers

Buying gifts for people seriously puts me in panic mode.  Receiving gifts from people is almost just as bad.  Are they going to take this present as being the pure symbolism of our friendship or are they going to feel awkward when there isn’t a reciprocal present?  These are all some of the things that go through my head during gift giving times as perfect gifts for book lovers.

Lucky for you, I sat down and wrote down the perfect gifts for book lovers that I would love myself as a 20 something book lover.

These are 9 great gifts to give to your favorite bookworm who loves all things cozy. Pin now, read later. | via The Spirited Violet

  1. A BOOK SHIRT
    I love this Harry Potter shirt that I saw when we were in Harry Potter’s section of Disney World last month.  However, if your booklover isn’t into the guy with a lightning scar, maybe they are into Dune or another personal favorite: Jane Austen.
       
  2. A NICE CANVAS TOTE
    I like a room bag that is both washable, sturdy, and has the ability to carry my kindle and a book and this one is it!  I love how this particular bag won’t clash with your favorite book cover and it will easily be carried on your shoulder or in your hand.
      
  3. A SNUGGLE THROW
    Guilty of being a creature of habit, I love snuggling up in a blanket when I’m reading like this one in a beautiful rose color.  Even when it is summer time, the perfect accessory to reading is still a blanket.
      
  4. HOT COCOA
    I like to have a full mug of hot cocoa when I’m reading and I especially love the Starbucks hot cocoa powder.  It is a great shape for a Christmas gift exchange- I bet it would be pretty hard to guess!
       
  5. A BOOK COFFEE MUG
    Well, you have to have a cute mug for that hot cocoa 😉 .
        
  6. A BOOK LOCKET
    For your book lovers that love nostalgia as much as I do, they would love this gold book locket.  Don’t have a loved one to stick in the locket?  I highly recommend Eddy Redmayne from Fantastic Beasts haha!
       
  7. FUZZY SLIPPERS
    My husband would highly appreciate if I started using these cute slippers since it means I’ll stop sticking my cold feet on him after I’ve been on a book binge.  I love that they come in gray because then they would match whatever I’m wearing around the house at the time.
       
  8. DIGITAL INK KINDLE
    I don’t see how people read on devices without digital ink??  We were actually gifted two different Kindles with digital ink by people who upgraded to newer tablets and it was probably the nicest gift we’ve received!  I’ve used them for years and I’ve never had eye strain despite hours of straight reading.  They are also surprisingly really affordable for what they are.  Bonus: most libraries have a digital download section and it means no late fees ever again! 
       
  9. BATH BOMB
    I love to relax in the bath and read a book.  However, bubbles don’t do because it is easy to get everything covered in bubbles.  This bath bomb smells wonderful and might make you feel like you’re trying to figure out a Polyjuice Potion.

Any suggestions you’d like to throw in there for your fellow book lovers?  You’re welcome to get me any of the above 😉 .

    Bath bombs, and all bath products in general are a current obsession of mine. I keep playing with the idea of making my own and selling them, and then I think about how exhausting it would be, and then think of you and your candle shop… and I just have all the respect for you.

    • The making them isn’t hard, it is selling them that is the hard part!! Selling a sensory based product that can’t be smelled online is tricky. I couldn’t keep up with the youtube and blogging schedule you have, the respect is mutual.

  • Great ideas! I love that mug and locket the most! I also could use a new tote bag for my books. Buying gifts still gives me anxiety too, but these suggestions sure help. Thank you!
