The cold weather makes you want to cuddle in your favorite spot with a good book and hot cocoa. There’s still a long time to plan your gift shopping list, but why wait? If you want to avoid the Christmas rush, do your shopping early.

Here are some gift ideas for book lovers of all kinds. I hope you find inspiration on this list to surprise your favorite bookworm with a thoughtful gift! They range from really inexpensive to quite expensive and are listed in no particular order. Enjoy!

Antique elegant tissue holder

This might be a good present if it matches the interior room decor. Before buying such an item, ask yourself if it would fit well on the person’s desk or coffee table. If their house or office is decorated in a classic, elegant style then this might be a nice touch. If they prefer a more modern look, then I recommend you keep looking.

Embossed leather journal

You may have heard that book lovers also collect beautiful notebooks that they never use because they’re too pretty. It’s true!

If your bookworm is passionate about fantasy, they will love this beautifully crafted journal with embossed dragon design and brass clasp.

Ravenclaw Kindle Cover

Are you searching for gift ideas for a Harry Potter Fan who’s also a proud Kindle owner? As long as you know what model their Kindle is, you can’t go wrong with this gift. If you click on the image it will take you to the product page and you’ll be able to choose from 15 different models.

Book Secret Box

A beautiful gift for someone who loves mysteries. From the outside, it looks like a book and feels like a book but it’s actually a secret box where your bookworm can hide their secrets… or snacks. If a more modern cover would suit them better, there are plenty of fake book boxes or even book safes (can be locked) to cater for all tastes.

Available here!


Scented Candle

This smells of chocolate, coffee, and books. This fragrance is the perfect way to pretend you’re lounging at the coffee shop when you’d rather snuggle up at home with your cat and read. Who wouldn’t love this gift?

….maybe chocolate haters but I’ve never met one.

Available here!

Reading Socks

If you’re looking for a cute gift for someone who can’t wait to get home, put their feet up on the coffee table and read then look no more! I’m sure they’ll appreciate the humor! Also, don’t interrupt their reading. They’ll probably appreciate this even more!

Available here!

Harry Potter Charm Bracelet

Are you shopping for a Harry Potter fan who wears jewelry? This bracelet would make a perfect gift. It’s probably best suited for a teenager.

Bathtub Caddy Tray Book Holder

This gift is great for someone who enjoys taking long baths. According to the specifications, the sides can be extended up to 47 inches. The bathtub caddy tray has silicone grips that prevent sliding and slipping. This is for when your bookworm wants some ‘me time’ to soak and relax. The wooden holder is wide (11.5 inches) and high (8.3 inches) enough to keep all small and big tablets as well as books. Whatever you do, don’t interrupt your bookworm while enjoying this gift…unless it’s to refill the glass.

Available here!

Book Lover’s Journal

A great way for book lovers to record all the books they’ve read and organize everything related to reading and books.

This sleek journal provides plenty of room to record details of your reading experiences.
It also provides space to jot down titles you’d like to read next.
Includes pages to list books borrowed, lent, or given (even a place to list books you’d like to give), your book sources, and book group contact information.
It also includes lists of acclaimed authors and titles to inspire future reading choices and a section devoted to your reading life.

Book Decals for Stairs

I think these look gorgeous and give your house a library vibe. Of course, you need to know that person’s living arrangements to make sure they have where to use them. If you want to impress a book lover who has indoor stairs, this will knock their socks off!

Available here!

Folding Book Lamp

There isn’t much to say about it other than it’s pretty, and cordless because it’s powered by batteries. It’s a creative gift that would look nice on anyone’s nightstand but would probably be more suitable for a kid/teen or college girl/guy.

Available here!

Book Clock

Appropriate for both men and women, this gift would fit well in any environment. Well, maybe not in the kitchen!

Available here!

Personal Library Kit

Who knew these existed? I didn’t! I think this is such a cute idea for someone who loves physical books (because you can’t use this with ebooks, duh!) especially for those who are kind enough to lend books to friends. The perfect gift for the generous reader. This could make a great gift for book club members.

Available here!

Typewriter Coaster Set

Ok, maybe this is meant more for writers than readers, but it still involves book lovers!

It’s cute and available here!



The Book Seat – Book Holder and Travel Pillow

This is the ultimate gift for someone who struggles to keep the book open (those with small hands know what I’m talking about) and while reading in various positions. The Book Seat will mold itself and shape to sit at any angle on any surface that you place it. Based on the reviews it got on Amazon, I’d say it’s widely appreciated.

Available here!

Kindle Paperwhite

I’m not gonna lie, it’s expensive but it’s the best gift you can give to a passionate reader with limited shelf space. At this price, it’s a gift reserved for very special people in your life: spouse, daughter/son or parents. I wish I had one when I was in college and barely had any space for books in my dorm room!

A nice gift for that bookworm who always finds excuses to skip social events and stay home to read. It shows you know what they’re up to!

Women aren’t the only ones who’d rather skip a social event in favor of reading a good book. If you know a guy who prefers books to people, surprise him with this shirt (available in several other colors).

Large reading pillow

A thoughtful gift for those who never find a comfortable position for a long time reading, or while working on their laptop in bed. A mom even recommends it as a breastfeeding pillow. It’s a multi-purpose memory foam pillow that seems highly appreciated by those who own it.

Book Stamp

If the bookworm you’re trying to impress is also into cooking, then here’s a nice gift idea! Recipes Inspired by Celebrated Works of Literature and the Passages that Feature Them.

Literary Shot Glasses

This is a fun gift and I think widely appreciated and fun at parties.

Antique Book Flower Pot

If your book lover also loves having house plants (and manages not to kill them, like I do) this might be a good gift. Of course, the pot comes empty, so you might want to consider buying it ahead of time and put a nice plant or two in it and maybe some decorative stone like the picture suggests. It would make a much more appreciated gift than an empty box, albeit a pretty one!

Available here!

Bookworm Journal

If you’re shopping for a kid who just discovered a passion for reading, or didn’t and you want to encourage them to read this cure journal could come in handy! After reading a story, the kid has to fill out a journal entry with the title, author and rating of the book. Then, tear off the perforated corner of each page to see the bookworm “eat” his way through the journal. Not only does the Bookworm Journal promote lifelong reading habits, but it helps parents and children maintain a reading routine.

Available here!

Book Nerd Hoodie

A fun gift for a proud book nerd. If you decide on this hoodie as a gift make sure you know her size and read carefully the manufacturer’s size chart. Also reading the reviews couldn’t hurt but that’s a good idea regardless of what you’re buying. One reviewer says it hugs her curves in all the right places.

This makes a nice present for any book lover with a sense of humor. They say it’s a wine tumbler, but honestly, you can drink whatever you want (and look fancy doing it) with it. It’s insulated so it keeps any beverage at the perfect temperature (hot or cold) for a long time. It comes with a clear BPA-free lid, reusable straw, and cleaning brush and is beautifully packaged in an elegant gift box, which makes it a perfect fun and unique gift.
