Looking for the best gifts for book lovers? Whether you’re looking for a great gift this holiday for your favorite bibliophile–or even for yourself– look no further than this shopping guide filled with the absolute best gifts for book lovers. From an adorable book tote to carry all your precious cargo to/from the book store or library to that perfect mug for morning reading, there’s something here for everyone on your list. Accio book gifts! (Translation for any non-HARRY POTTER fans: that means bring on the book gifts!)
“To the stars who listen–and the dreams that are answered.” If this is one of your favorite literature quotes then this stunning sterling silver star necklace by Lafonn is a must-have. Fans of Sarah J. Maas’s A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES series will love this one and it’s a steal for fine jewlery at $155.00.
Nothing says nostalgia like children’s book series Little Golden Books. Celebrating the joy of reading for over 75 years, you can now wear your love of these iconic picture books on a super soft tee. Comes in a variety of prints in addition to the Classic Children’s Book-Themed ringer-style tee shown here. ($30).
Stuck in the rain and cold for the next few months? Warm up in style with these book-themed candles from Frostbeard Studio like this scent of lavender, fresh rain, and ginger appropriated titled Rainy Day Reads ($18).
A cute little book sleeve will perfectly protect your favorite bibliophile’s most prized novels. With one of these bad boys, they’ll no longer worry about a damaged corner or scratched cover when they travel. This pink llama design is a great pick ($10.99), but I’m also a fan of the book sleeves sold by Book Beau.
An illustrated guide to all things book-related, BIBLIOPHILE by artist Jane Mount is a wonderful addition to any bookshelf. ($16.29)
Do not pass go; go directly to your wallet and pull 0ut your credit card for this gift! Winter is the perfect time for boardgames and is there a more perfect and timeless one than Monopoly? And yet it gets even better for Netflix fans with this very special STRANGER THINGS Monopoly collectors edition. ($25.99) Prefer GAME OF THRONES instead? There’s a special collector GOT Monopoly edition as well.
#SockSunday. It’s a thing! Book lovers everywhere post their best socks and their current reads on Instagram and Twitter. Get your favorite bookworm a pair of funny socks so they can join in the fun. These hilarious I Hate Everyone, too socks by Blue Q will definitely do the job! ($10.99).
Is there anything cuter than the original Disney bookworm Belle from Beauty & the Beast? These Funko collectibles ($16.87) are the perfect little stocking stuffers and with so many different fandoms like Disney, The Walking Dead, Marvel, and DC you can find the perfect action figure for anyone on your list.
Love to cook? Williams Sonoma has you covered with tons of HARRY POTTER cooking items to help your favorite wizards do everything from baking Slytherin cookies to staying hydrated during Quidditch matches. Can’t decide what to buy first? Grab their HARRY POTTER gift set ($119.95).
“Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold.” Do you have a fan of S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders on your gift list? If so, they’ll love this literary necklace by Out of Print, inspired by the book’s most famous quote. ($30).
If you really want to wow them, there is no other gift out there like the Olympia Le Tan Box Book Purses. Neiman Marcus carries a variety of selections but you can never go wrong with Jane Austen’s PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. ($1,660)
Know someone looking to give their bookshelf a makeover? Consider the absolutely stunning book sets created by Juniper Books. They’re sure to take your bookish friend’s library or office shelves to the next level like this HARRY POTTER special edition Hogwarts Express set. (If they already have the hardbacks, you can buy covers only.) (Starting at $115.00).
For the holidays, A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens is always a great gift. Why not go the extra mile and get them a special edition from The Folio Society. Founded in London in 1947, The Folio Society publishes carefully crafted editions of the world’s finest literature. ($34.95).
For the bookworm who likes delivery services, this OwlCrate subscription ($29.99/month) sends magical monthly boxes tailored to a chosen theme. Each OwlCrate contains one Young Adult novel, as well as 3-5 other bookish treats.
For the fashionista + traveler + book collector in your life, the Louis Vuitton City Guides are a must-have. This little dash of luxury is a virtual steal at $37 for each version, but the entire collection will set you back. Start with their favorite city and take it from there.
