This is the fourth year for the Top 10 Christmas Gifts for Book Lovers (bookworms, book nerds, bookies, etc.) and I’m excited to share the Christmas gift ideas I have for your book worm.

Every birthday, anniversary or special event may bring you a little stress as you may not know what to buy for your bookworm. Sure, your go to is always an actual book on their wishlist, but if you’re wanting something unique and outside of the “book” then I hope this post will ease the tension and give you some great ideas this Christmas season.

Below you’ll find our Top 10 Christmas Gifts for Book Lovers 2015 edition. Enjoy!

 

Gift-Idea-1

Anthology Candles has an amazing “old books” scented candle that I think any book lover would enjoy.

Let’s be honest, this is a safe place, book worms do enjoy a good fresh (or seasoned) smelling book. It’s a thing. We like it.

Gift-Idea-2

Personalized “From the Library of…” Stamp for your book lover to brand their book collection… and make sure that loaned books are returned to their rightful owners. Discovered these beautifully designed book stamps on Etsy and I’ve added it to my personal Christmas wishlist.

Check out all the stamps over on the Plurabelle Studio Etsy Shop.

Gift-Idea-3

One can never have too many bookmarks. The problem is that book lovers have too few and this results in anything from old receipts, pens, paperclips, torn notebook paper and even the occasional utensil being used as a place holder (the struggle is real for book lovers).

There are SO MANY adorable and unique bookmarks out there that will just delight your bookworm this Christmas season.

Check out this amazing Etsy shop, CoolBookmark (amazing name)… for more awesomeness. 

Gift-Idea-4

I cannot express how much I adore the “Little Free Library” or neighborhood library, where communities can share and trade books. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

If you have the money to invest in one of these Little Free Libraries, then I highly encourage you to do so.

It can either be a gift to your community or a gift for your book lover for the community! Everybody wins!

There are some amazing custom build libraries on Etsy but you can also go straight to Little Free Library’s website.

Gift-Idea-5

Give the gift of Audio Books this Christmas!

A subscription to Audible or Audiobooks would be a wonderful Christmas gift this year! I personally have Audible but I’ve also tried Audiobooks. I commute to work each day and take monthly road trips so my subscription has been well loved and appreciated.

Audio books can be taken anywhere you can’t physically hold a book. Great for the frequent traveler, the exercise guru or anyone who just enjoys a good audio read.

Both Audible and Audiobooks have the ability for someone to “gift” a subscription.

Gift-Idea-6

Literary Maps or Fiction Maps can be great for decorating your room or personal library.

These little gems have been popping up everywhere and I love them.

From maps of where stories originated to maps of Westeros or Middle Earth, they have maps for all genres.

Check out this shop for more maps. 

Gift-Idea-7

Literary Inspired Jewelry for the bookworm with style!

While browsing Etsy I came across this little shop that had truly beautiful pieces that are subtle but reflect your love of the written word.

Absolutely divine.

Jezebel Charms, Etsy.  

Gift-Idea-8

This is probably the coolest thing I’ve seen so far. Laptop cases designed to look like actual books.

Have a book worm that is also a computer geek? This is a beautiful combination!

They have a variety of genres of book laptop cases such as Harry Potter, The Hobbit, Star Wars, Comic Books, Hocus Pocus, Beauty and the Beast, War and Peace and there is even a Tardis (plus so much more).

Check out the Case Library, Etsy Shop for more!

Gift-Idea-9

Book Lovers need Book Wear for Christmas.

Several shops online and many book stores have a variety of wearable literature including t-shirts, socks, scarves, ties and sweaters… just to name a few.

Be sneaky and grab your book lovers sizes then go to town and stock them up on some Book Wear Gear.

Suggestions:

Out of Print Clothing
StrandBooks 
Cyberoptiz, Etsy
Barnes and Noble
Hot Topic

Gift-Idea-10

The final Christmas gift idea for book lovers on my list is one that I suggest every year, because you just can’t go wrong with this option.

The Ultimate Book Lovers Gift Basket.

If you go to any bookstore, whether it be online or physical store, they always have trinkets, gadgets and gizmos littering the shelves of the store. My suggestion is to grab a container such as a book tote bag, basket, gift box, etc. and fill it with amazing little (or big) book goodies.

What’s wonderful about this option is it can always fit within any budget. You control the size of the “basket” as well as what goes inside.

Truly is a great option for the indecisive shopper.

Ideas for the Gift Basket

  • Notebooks
  • Mugs
  • Jewelry
  • Phone Case
  • Bookmarks
  • Thumb Book Holder
  • Scarves
  • Mini fun books
  • Pens
  • Candy (ie. Harry Potter Chocolate Frogs)
  • Literary Character Miniatures
  • Gift Card
  • Socks
  • etc.

 

Feel free to share your own gift ideas for book worms in the comments below. We LOVE to hear from you!

Have yourself a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Hello everyone! Sorry for the long hiatus. I got into a reading slump once summer started and thus did not read that many books. Don’t worry though because I am back with more reviews! To kick off,...
