Gift ideas for book lovers

Hi guys! Have you done with your Christmas shopping yet? If you're still figuring out what to get your friends and relatives, this post might give you some ideas. Whether it's to find something sweet for the book lovers in your life, or to simply treat yourself to a little bookish goody, you'll here find some fun gift ideas that will certainly please book lovers.


To make things easier for you, I've added links to the different stores and products mentioned here. 

Please also note that this month I'm also hosting a Christmas Giveaway Hop. If you want to participate, you can click here to sign up in the hop :)

Bookish jewelry



I'm a huge fan of those, especially since you can find them for pretty cheap if you know where to look for. Ebay offers a wide range of necklaces and other jewelry inspired by popular fandoms like Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, The Hunger Games, among others. 


Etsy stores also offer really beautiful necklaces and jewelry designed after your favorite books. Novel Reveries, which featured on my blog in a past giveaway post, makes jewelry with miniature book charms. She sells custom versions of her bracelets and necklaces, meaning you get to choose which book(s) you want her to make miniatures of.

Bookish accessories

From scarves, to leggings, hats and dresses, there are tons of fashion accessories inspired by well loved books. My sister and I own Gryffindor and Slytherin scarves. These make great gifts for Harry Potter fans, especially in this winter season. 


The Etsy store Novel Reveries goes one step further and offers gorgeous upcycled bags which actually look like books. This Jane Eyre one has to be my favorite.

Bookmarks

Some book lovers enjoy collecting bookmarks and there is a variety of types you get to choose from if you want to give them one as a gift. The magnetic ones are among my favorites. Not only are they super cute, but they also won't fall through your book even if you put it in a bag or something. 


The metal bookmarks also make really nice gifts. They look classy and some even come with a little hole where you can add a charm to it to customize it to your liking.

Bookish candles

I don't know about you, but I just love candles. Light up one and your room instantly looks a little more magical. Etsy stores such as From The Page and blabla offer a wide range of pretty candles inspired by fictional worlds and characters. From Peeta's cakes to Christmas at Hogwarts, you're sure to find something for your bookish friends.

Gift cards

You want to give your friend a book but aren't sure that they have or haven't read? Simply give them a gift card and let them choose. You're basically giving them free reign to indulge in some extra book shopping and trust me, they'll love you for it. You can give them a gift card to either their favorite bookstore or to websites you know they like to buy books.

I hope this post has given you some ideas on what to get your bookish loved ones this year. Enjoy your Christmas shopping!

  2. Ooh I love that Alice In Wonderland bookmark!!! It's so cool! Unfortunately I don't usually receive bookish gifts for my birthday or the holidays because no one knows what books I like other than like five :D I also can't participate in your Christmas giveaway hop but it sounds like a ton of fun! Happy holidays!

  3. This is so perfect for me - loved everything! I guess it's good I don't know many book lovers IRL, or I would have so much trouble not keeping what I got for them. :) Etsy is always the worst place for me though - so many pretty things on there!
