No. 10: Book Journal
Chances are, a book addict probably reads more books than they can even remember. So buy them a book journal that will allow them to keep track of all the stories they’ve explored!
No.9: Book-related iPhone Case
Personalized iPhone cases tell a lot about a person. So why not get your friend a case that is a tribute to their favorite book! Check Etsy.com for a great selection of styles.
No. 8: Personalized Bookmark
You’ve probably used the typical paper style bookmarks with pictures of cute animals on them. These are fine and dandy, but for someone who is always reading, why not get them something special to mark their pages. Metal charm bookmarks add a personal, sophisticated touch to a book lover’s reading experience. You can find a wide variety on Etsy.com.
No. 7: Book Jewelry
Do you know a girl who likes to announce to the world just how much she loves to read? Well, why not get her a necklace that will do the job for her. There are tons of different styles with quirky quotes on Etsy.com.
No. 6: Reading Light
Do you know someone who can’t put a book down, even after lights out? Then the perfect gift for them is a reading light. It’s like a flashlight, only it’s hands-free. It simply clips onto their book and shines down on their page. You can find these at most chain bookstores.
No. 5: Book Purse
Let your book-loving friend arrive in style with a handcrafted purse made out of their favorite novel’s cover! They’re cute and totally unique. You can find a wide variety on Etsy.com.
No. 4: Book Fragrance
Some people are so passionate about books that they can’t resist the smell of a used or antique book store. You’ve probably seen them, opening old books and taking a huge wiff. Well, the perfect gift for these people will give them that smell all day long. It’s a cologne spray called Paperback by the Demeter Fragrance Library.
No. 3: Bookends
If you know someone who is not just a reader, but a collector as well, then nothing is more practical for them than a set of bookends. You can find bookends online or in most department stores. For affordable prices, check stores like T.J. Maxx (USA) or Homesense (Canada).
No. 2: Gift Certificate
Do you know the book lover in your life’s favorite place to shop? If you don’t want to risk buying them a book they’ve already read, then get them a gift card to their favorite new or used book store.
No. 1: A New Book
A lot of avid readers have a Goodreads account. This site allows them to keep track of all the books they’ve read, are currently reading, and want to read in the future. If your book-loving friend has a Goodreads account, snoop their “to read” list. Chances are they don’t own those books, so choosing from there is a safe bet. But we suggest you get a gift receipt just in case!
