It is that time of year again to share my gift ideas for the book lovers in your life! I am sharing my list a little earlier this year due to all the supply chain issues and because there are several items from small businesses included. Most of the small shops have earlier deadlines and the earlier you can place your orders the easier it will be for them.
I did not repeat any gift ideas from previous years on this list so click below for many more ideas that I have previously shared:
Book Inspired Gifts for Kids (2019)
Hand crafted bookends: I got the Lord of the Rings silhouette one for Christmas last year and I love what it adds to my shelves. There are many other options as well if Tolkien isn’t your preference.
Bookish t-shirts: PixieHallows etsy shop has several really pretty designs. I have the Christmas Carol shirt and it is so soft and comfortable.
OwlCrate or OwlCrate Jr Subscription: This book subscription company is so fun! There are two different options for types of books: OwlCrate which includes young adult books and OwlCrate Jr which includes middle grade level books (targeted towards about ages 8-12). You can gift a subscription of one or more books that starts right away or choose the option so the recipient can start it whenever they are ready. If you prefer to know exactly which book you are giving and what is included in the box check out their Past Boxes section. They also sell individual items in their Shop section that were included in past boxes and you could pick out something fun especially for the person you’re shopping for.
Rechargeable book light: My older two kids and I each have one of these book lights and they get so much use! They can be hooked onto a book or on a bed ledge or other small area. When it comes to book lights, rechargeable is definitely the way to go. I am also interested in checking out this around the neck version that has rave reviews.
Exit the Game brand escape room in a box games: Although not technically book related, I have found a lot of overlap between readers and game lovers. These escape rooms in a box have been really fun for my husband and I to do together at home. One of our favorite versions is the Dead Man on the Orient Express and it has a little bit of bookish influence.
Phone mount: A gift idea for bookstagrammers! My husband gave this to me for my birthday and I thought it was a great idea. It has a bendable, but very sturdy arm that you can adjust to use it to get whichever angle you want. It is very easy to get your phone in and out and it stays in place.
Letter Edition of classic novels: These gorgeous books are perfect for your favorite classics fan! The full text of the novel is accompanied by authentic handwritten letters replicated from the story that you can unfold and read. There is a Pride and Prejudice version and Little Women version and they are both excellent!
Libro.fm audiobook credits: With so many publishing delays and inventory issues right now this would be a really easy and welcome gift for an audiobook lover in your life! Just click on the gift section and you can send audiobook credits digitally around the world. And it still supports the independent bookstore of your choice.
