For Readers: Gift Guide | Blogmas 2018 Day 10

Coming off of my other blogmas posts about buying gifts for writers and bloggers I thought I should do one if you’re shopping for your favorite bookworm! So I dug back into the depths of the internet for some adorable gifts for your favorite reader!

Owl Bookends

So I was scrolling through Amazon and saw these adorable owl-shaped bookends. I love owls so much and I just thought these would be an adorable addition to any reader’s bookshelf. 

An Out of Print Gift Card

If you’ve never heard of Out of Print, first off do you live under a rock? Second, they are a clothing brand that sells clothes based off of literature. Some of them are based on banned books, or classics, or just shirts that look like library cards. Their stuff is perfect for any book lover and they have gift cards! Get your reader an Out of Print gift card and let them pick out their favorite designs from the site!

Fancy Bookmarks

A lot of the time when I was growing up my dad would get me a book and my mom would slip collectors bookmarks into my stocking. I still have a lot of them! I have a Harry Potter one, a Chronicles of Narnia one, and even a Doctor Who one. (They’re all still in their plastic sleeves, too.) Some of my most treasured gifts from people are really nice, durable bookmarks. I found this one from Amazon with my favorite quote on it: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll land amongst the stars.” 

A New Book

This one might be a little obvious, but get them a new book! But be careful with this, I often don’t read books people gift me unless I’ve specifically asked for it. I’m really picky when it comes to books and don’t usually follow recommendations well (the last time someone recommended something to me it wound up in this blog post). The reason for this is that everyone reads differently, so what you enjoy may not be what I enjoy. Don’t randomly recommend me things I won’t read it. However, if your bookworm is a little less picky then me buy them your favorite book and leave them a note. If not, ask them what they’ve been reading and if there are any book they’re looking forward to. 

Personal Library Kit

I found this one and thought it was hilarious. It’s for the bookworm that often lends out their books and worries about getting them back. You can give them their own library kit with old-school library stamps! Just the perfect amount of adorable and nerdy for your favorite bookworm!

That “shoot for the moon” is one of my absolute favorite quotes. I have it on a bookmark too!
