33 Original Bookish Gifts For The Reader In Your Life (And @BookBuddle Giveaway)

Bookish Gifts For Readers On Novels And Nonfiction

It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays, and if you’re like me, at only 2 weeks from C-Day, you’re just now starting to wonder what you should get your family and friends as gifts. Or even what you should buy for yourself, because, let’s face it, you’ve done a great job this year and you deserve to be rewarded.

I’ve scoured the internet (mostly Etsy) and found 33 bookish gifts perfect for yourself or other avid readers in your life that range from cute to gorgeous to humorous. They include my favorite physical book covers – Book Buddles – which I’ve found to be the highest-quality option among many out there in terms of their construction and durability.

To celebrate the season, I’m giving away two snowflake-themed book Book Buddles to a lucky reader (a smaller one for your paperback books and a larger one for your hardcovers). The giveaway is international since Book Buddle owner Jules will be shipping the Book Buddles directly to the winner for me. Make sure to enter below (it runs through December 13th at midnight) and Happy Holidays to everyone!

    Those sweatshirts are so cute! Hmm…for myself? A sweatshirt and the pillow that has the tiles spelling READ – so cute! I have several bookish throw pillows already, but how can there be too many? For someone else, I love the Kindle covers and Book Buddles; what a great idea. Thanks for sharing these!

    For myself: the circuit board bookmarks and the typewrite kindle cover.

    For friends: the scarves and candles.

    But honestly, all of these are fantastic gift ideas!

      Have you tried soy-based candles? They may not bother you as much as other ones. Unless it’s the scent that’s the issue 🙂

    If I hadn’t already spent all of my spending money for the month, I would totally snatch up that “Just One More Chapter” print! I would get a circuit board bookmark for my Boyfriend because he seems to always lose his bookmarks and he’s a major computer geek 🙂
