With holidays quickly approaching it is time for another round of gift suggestions for book lovers! I have done this for the last couple years and it is always a lot of fun. I have links to past lists at the bottom of this post.
Disclaimer: Several of these links are affiliate links which means I earn a small commission if you purchase something through the link. Some of these items were also sent to me for free for review, but all opinions are my own and I was under no obligation to include any of them in my list.
If you are searching for suggestions for actual books:
-I share daily book recommendations over on my Instagram page (or the linked Facebook page if you prefer) and there are affiliate links to books I have recently featured through my Amazon storefront.
-Lists of some of our favorite picture books and favorite early chapter books can be found on my Bookshop storefront.
-The only thing better than a reading book is reading a book about books! A list of my favorites with themes of books and libraries for every age level can be found here.
-I am a big advocate for using the library, but there are some children’s books whose format just lends them better to being owned. I have a list of all those engaging, interactive books in my Children’s Books Worth Owning post.
-For all my fellow lovers of the intersections of books and food, check out this list of Books for Food Loving Families
-For the audiobook lover in your life try gifting them an audiobook subscription! There are a couple different options of companies to choose from and I laid out all the pros and cons in my Guide to Audiobooks post as well as some suggestions of specific audiobooks and narrators I have enjoyed. You could accompany the subscription with a list of ideas for audiobooks you’ve loved to get them started! Or a new pair of headphones! I have the Sudio Tolv earphones and use them every single day, but I know a lot of people swear by the Apple AirPods as well.
If you are searching for book inspired or book adjacent products…
–Lord of the Rings Little People set: How adorable is this new release from Fisher Price?! Both my husband and I are big fans of Lord of the Rings and our kids are familiar and excited about it as a result and so we hope they will have fun playing with these!
-Book inspired art and products: There are so many excellent options to choose from! I have previously discussed some of them in past gift guides (linked at the bottom) but one of my favorites to get you started: A Fine Quotation.
–Bookish spices from The Book Club Cookbook: Perfect for the bookworm in your life who also loves to cook! Or that just appreciates a good pun! I have been sent several variations of these spice blends and the titles make me smile and the flavors make my tastebuds happy!
–Letter board: Ideal for spicing up your bookstagram account, bookshelf, or seasonal decor! My husband just gave me this one for my birthday a couple months ago. I thought it was a great idea and I have had a lot of fun with it.
-Favorite games: Although not technically book related, I have found there is a lot of overlap between book lovers and game lovers. You can see a list of our tried and true favorites games. This year I have my eye on trying out The Princess Bride Game and Decrypto!
-Vinyl maps for children: Also not exactly book related, but it overlaps with a lot of our reading. We had both the world map and USA map hanging in our home for years and my kids adored them. After multiple moves they were losing their stick and we decided not to bring them to our new house this year. We put up a different map, but my kids keep asking for vinyl ones instead. So this year we bought new ones which we will give them for Christmas. I have had a lot of questions about these maps over the years and have had many happy referrals!
