Updated: Sep 24, 2019
I'm super excited to write this post because it means I get to be a total dork for 4273 characters!
Today, I've put together a list of 8 totally amazing gifts for book lovers! Whether you're looking for a present for your favorite bibliophile or just want to treat yo self, I 100% guarantee you'll find something you love. Happy reading!
1. I Write: What's Your Superpower Mug
I've been using this cheeky mug for a while now, and I love it! Mug addiction is a real thing. In real life, the black and white colors look crisp and steal the show every #bookstagram. I also feel *professional* writing (or banging my head on my computer keyboard) with this beautiful thing next to me.
"Books were safer than other people anyway." ~Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane
2. The Hunger Games Mockingjay Pin
Katniss Everdeen stole all of our hearts in Hunger Games: fearlessly protecting her little sister Prim, joining up with Peeta, and fighting for liberty. *three-finger salute"
I know you've fantasized about being as fierce as Katniss before, so here's your chance! This gold pin (just like what Katniss sports in the novel!) is perfect for delightfully bookish Halloween costume or everyday life. It's also just eight dollars, so get your booties over to Amazon now. May the odds ever be in your favor!
3. Slithery Tale Bookmark
Isn't this sea monster bookmark adorable? I know for a fact that all you bookworms are using receipts, tissues, and other crazy stuff for bookmarks right now, but trust me, you need this. It's basically the cutest, most functional thing ever, and seeing its sweet little face over the top of your book will make you submerge yourself back into your novel time and time again.
“You've got the look of a girl who's no stranger to the page. I can tell. You've got words in your soul.” ~Jay Kristoff, Nevernight
4. LED Reading Light
Publishers haven't taken our suggestions and created books with glow in the dark ink yet, but this reading light is the next best thing. It has three different light settings (high light, warm light, and white light), a built-in rechargeable battery, and an adjustable clip. This handy little gadget helps your book addiction become more comfortable than ever. Reading books all night? Yes, please!
5. Harry Potter Wall Prints
These gorgeous wall prints are the perfect addition to any Potterhead's reading corner! Ahhh, I'm in love with these. The writing is gorgeous and I love the amazing Albus Dumbledore quotes. These prints could turn any cupboard under the stairs into a dreamy paradise!
“You don't spend your life hanging around books without learning a thing or two.” ~Lemony Snicket, Shouldn't You Be in School?
6. My Favorite People Are Fictional T-Shirt
This sassy shirt will quickly become your favorite piece of clothing. I mean, honestly, who hasn't wanted to solve puzzles with Kyle from Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library or eat a thick slice of pineapple upside down cake with the Penderwicks?
“Books seem to follow me home like stray cats.” ~Nancy Schoellkopf
7. Reading Journal for Book Lovers
Struggling to find a gift for a writer that's not pens? I'm crazy about this reading journal! The size is very manageable; it's not tiny but not bulky. Basically, you record all the books you read, how many stars you rate it, what genre, what subjects it inspired you to learn more about, etc. to help you keep track of your crazy reading life. It has all these cute reading quotes throughout, and in the back, you can find "reading trees," or flow charts that show how one book got you to read another book or learn something. It also has checklists like "Pulitzer Prize Winners" and "Time Magazine's Top 100 Novels," as well as lists you can write of books that you want to read, author's you've met, borrowing and loaning records (so people can stop stealing your books), and book source records. In conclusion, this is the best present for readers ever and you need to go buy it right now!
“You can get lost in any library, no matter the size. But the more lost you are, the more things you'll find.” ~Millie Florence, Lydia Green Of Mulberry Glen
