With the holidays swiftly approaching, you might be thinking to yourself: what should I buy the bookworm in my life? How do I make my beloved introvert leap for joy? As a noted bookworm and introvert, I’m here to give you some ideas. Most of these are small businesses, and the list should cover a wide range of budgets.
I’m totally obsessed with the idea of these book boxes, and have more than half a mind to try making something similar myself. However, for $45 + shipping, you can let Etsy creator Coffee and a Classic create a gorgeous themed gift based around your friend’s favorite book. They’re lightly customizable (choices between snacks, drinks, etc.) and extremely charming and thoughtful.
You can also gift these boxes as subscriptions at their website, Coffee and a Classic, for a gift that keeps giving all year.
2. Book Themed Art
I personally have a really hard time budgeting for home decor. It’s one of those things that I feel silly spending money on, and so I always appreciate gifts that can pretty up my home a bit, especially when those gifts are unique pieces of art.
3. A Bookish Blanket!
There is nothing a bookworm loves more than getting cozy with a blanket and a book. Why not add an extra bit of personality to their blanket?
3. A Book Bag
How else are they going to carry their library loot home?
A large percentage of self-professed Readers™ are highly devoted the *The Aesthetic* of reading (myself included), and there is nothing more dramatic than reading a book by a rainy window under a blanket while burning a candle.
5. A pretty version of their favorite book
Remember what I said about readers being committed to the *Aesthetic*? There’s no better way to level up their instagram posts than with a unique printing of a beloved book.
6. Book Pins
Enamel pins are having a moment, and I’m 100% here for it — in fact, I’ve started collecting them because they’re small, easy to display, and cost less than mugs (my pre-fire collection). There are SO MANY cute book pins out there! Go crazy!
7. Book fashion
For the rare occasion when your book-loving friend leaves the house.
8. Mugs! Mugs! Mugs!
Readers love coffee and tea and hot toddys and cocoa! Give them things to drink them out of!
9. Tea to go in their mugs
And there you have it! Tons of gift ideas for your favorite book lover. This post was extremely fun to make and I’m thinking about making more gift guides through the holiday season so… let me know what you think!
See you next time, shoppers!
