Another holiday gift guide coming your way…I couldn’t go the whole holiday season without writing a gift guide for the BOOKWORM aka me! Everyone knows how much I love buying new books, but I also loving giving people my favorite books to read as well. You might be asking yourself… what do you give a bookworm for the holidays? Um how ’bout a damn book? Duh. Well yeah there’s that… but it’s time to get more clever and creative that will leave your beloved bookworms surprised and excited this season. Here are 7 non-book gift ideas for all BOOKWORMS:
A true bookworm knows mugs go hand-in-hand (literally) with reading… a good cup of coffee with a great book is the perfect Sunday morning. A mug with a quote from a favorite author or book is the way to go.
SHOP: Bookshelf Mug – $14
BOOK INSPIRED BAGS
Whether you want to carry around your books or just add a quirky statement to any outfit, book inspired bags are the ideal gift for a bookworm. Danielle Nicole has a new Harry Potter collection (yes Harry Potter inspired backpacks!).
BOOKWORM COFFEE TABLE BOOKS
I mean it does seem obvious…getting a bookworm a book. But a way to be original with it is to get a book that functions both as an interesting read and a fun decoration – a coffee table book!
A cute tote bag goes a long way…you can use it for the farmer’s market but also bookstore runs. You can even personalize a tote bag with a name, favorite book title, or quote. Or get a tote bag from their favorite bookshop (mine is the Notting Hill Bookshop….Hugh Grant duh).
(For the Notting Hill lovers) SHOP: The Notting Hill Bookshop tote – $15
Bookworms love decorating their homes with all their books…so why not help in the process and buy them quirky or trendy book ends that fit their aesthetic and style?
We all love a good pouch – whether to hold all our makeup, hair products, or even pens and pencils. Try one of these book inspired pouches that your favorite bookworm can carry with them anywhere.
LITERARY SCENTED CANDLES
These candles are named after locations in literary classics and their scents evoke the books’ most memorable moments and places. A great gift for readers to use while they’re devouring their favorite book.
Why stop at candles? SHOP: The Great Gatsby Matches – $3
Comfy Throw Blanket and Pillow
Who doesn’t love wrapping themselves up with a huge, comfy blanket and laying in a pile full of soft pillows? The perfect gift for a book addict.
(Matching Pillow) SHOP: ‘Cuddle Up’ Faux Fur Heart Accent Pillow – $49
And remember…when all else fails…just get them the damn book. Happy shopping!
