Got a book lover or writer in your life? Like, a self-proclaimed bibliophile who's completely obsessed with their book club, spouts literary quotes like it's NBD, and has a mood board of old-fashioned libraries? It won't be difficult to buy them a thoughtful gift this year, since you already know they'll absolutely love any book.
That said, there are somany other unique ideas out there that aren't actually books but will undoubtedly be loved by your fave book lover (take it from us writers here at Women's Health!). Besides, not all book lovers are made equal. Some may prefer a luxurious book-themed piece of art, while others might like something personal and thoughtful.
Peep a few of the best gift ideas for book lovers, below:
They've been talking about that one classic novel ever since what feels like forever. That means it's high time they get to see—and obsess over—that first edition book cover on their wall. You'll have dozens of options to choose from, including Virginia Woolf, Jane Austen, and other iconic classics.
For the reader who loves a challenge, see how long it will take them to tackle all kinds of genres—from The Great Gatsby to To Kill a Mockingbird—on this scratch-off poster. Get yourself one and make a competition out of it!
Your book-loving friend has probably always wanted a Little Free Library in their neighborhood (I mean, who doesn't?). Imagine how much fun they will have sharing their love of books with their community after making this kit by themselves.
Some people love keeping track of all the books they read. Why? It helps them remember key takeaways from each story. (Plus, it feels pretty cool to look back at the end of the year and see how much you've read.)
If your book lover's paperback and hardcover collection is getting to be a little, um,much, try gifting them a Kindle this year. You'll totally lighten their load. I was hesitant about moving away from IRL books, but this kinda changed my life.
No need to eat breakfast one-handed if they're trying to finish a thriller in bed. This pillowy-soft bookrest will allow them to prop up their material (a book, tablet, or iPad) for hands-free reading.
If books on tape are more their thing, they'll get unparalleled sound quality and 40 hours of listening time with these Beats wireless headphones. Or, they'll just use the noise-canceling tech to isolate themselves while reading next to a noisy roommate.
There is absolutely nothing that matches the satisfaction a person gets from wrapping themselves in a blanket and curling up with a good book. That's why your friend will very much appreciate this cozy AF fleece throw blanket.
A tote bag featuring all of these phenomenal Black women writers will surely make the empowered, book-loving lady in your life proud. Plus, it comes in a few different colors, making it easy to choose their fave.
The perfect gift for the person who's constantly on the hunt for something new, signing them up for this book subscription box means they'll get two new reads every month. It doesn't stop there—they'll also get a few self-care items in each box, from skincare to tea, sweet treats, and more.
This reading journal has prompts for every reader to fill out after they finish every book they read. It'll help log their fave quotes and takeaways, and be such a fun memory to look back on for years to come.
When in doubt, go with a gift-ready box that comes with some fail-safe options. This one includes a cute tote, some book-themed socks, a page holder, and an adorable sign that says "Shhh I'm reading". All for $40, it's a no-brainer they'll love.
Some branded gifts can be a bit cheesy, and maybe I'm a bit biased as a Harry Potter fan myself, but this golden snitch desk lamp is actually super chic. At $35, they'll love adding this to their home office.
Customize this pillow by putting their name (or the nickname you have for them!) on it, and they'll love putting it on display on their couch. It'll also be their fave thing to snuggle up with when they read.
If your book lover is anything like me, they're up late every night because they just can't stop turning the pages of their book. Show them your support with this cozy af sweatshirt tons of Women's Health editors love.
Okay, isn't this soy candle sooo ideal? Your pal can light the candle while they read, and they'll instantly feel like they're in a cozy library nook as nutmeg, amber, and sandalwood surround them. (Swoon.)
Each of the individually-wrapped bags of tea in this box contains a famous quote from a classic novel. If they love snuggling up with a nice cup of tea and a book (me!!), they'll love this thoughtful present.
Make sure their reading glasses stay never get lost (you know they spend *so* much time searching for them) with this adorable stand that doubles as decor. I got one for my mom several years ago, and she loves it!
I have friends who will literally wake up early just to make sure they can read a bit of the book they're on before having to get ready for work. They'll love snuggling up in this sweatshirt early in the mornings.
