If you have a book lover in your life, you know that they can be difficult to shop for. What do you buy someone who has everything? This year, think outside the box and give the gift of literature with one of these unique ideas.
Books to Read
Of course, the first thing on every book lovers wish list this year is probably books! It may be hard to know what books they’re eyeing next, so the best bet is to simply ask what books they are looking to read soon, or what books they’ve always wanted to read but never have.
Additionally, a specialty collectors set, a vintage copy, or a collectors edition of their favorite books or series can mean a lot to the book lover in your life. Having a beautiful, thoughtful copy of a book they really love can go a long way to showing your friend or loved one that you care about their interests.
No matter how many books your loved one already has, there is always room for one more. If you are stuck on what to get, try picking out a book that is related to one of their interests. Alternatively, you can check out your local bookstore. The staff can recommend great gifts for book lovers based on the tastes and interests of your book lover.
Gifts for book lovers can be tricky, but with a little effort and thinking outside of the box it doesn’t have to be. Take a moment to think about how and when they read, and how they store their books. Are they the kind to read late at night in bed? Consider a lighted bookmark, or a new side table lamp to keep their pages illuminated. Is the old bookshelf they bought in college overflowing with books, to the point where they’ve pilled them on the floor? Consider buying, and if you’re hand even installing, some new shelves or a bigger bookcase. Many book lovers enjoy the opportunity to show off their books, and keep them in good condition. The bibliophile in your life is sure to love these gifts.
One way to make reading even more enjoyable is with a comfortable place to do it. A cozy armchair or a new set of sheets can make all the difference. If you want to go above and beyond, consider giving a gift certificate to a local bookstore so your loved one can pick out their own perfect reading spot.
For the truly dedicated reader, there is nothing worse than losing your place in a good book. Help them keep track of where they left off with a beautiful bookmark. You can find bookmarks made out of metal, wood, or even glass. Or you can make your own if you are feeling creative! Either way, your loved one is sure to appreciate this practical gift.
If you really want to surprise your loved one this Christmas, give them a gift that celebrates their love of books in a unique way. For example, you could get them a mug with their favorite book quote or a T-shirt with the cover of their favorite book printed on it. You could even frame a page from their favorite book and give it to them as wall art. Ultimately, gifts for book lovers will be appreciated simply for the thoughtfulness put into them.
