10 Best Gifts For Book Lovers

Bookworms are surprisingly easy to find a gift for. They are naturally inquisitive and can find interest in a number of topics. If you find a book you think they will like, chances are they will actually read it. I personally love a book as a gift because it is that other person wanting to share knowledge with you and that’s a pretty cool feeling.

Now for the list! We have compiled a list of 10 things that are a book lover’s dream. These range from special editions to accessories that make the act of reading more pleasurable. If you want to start reading more books, keep reading this article and also look for some great resources near the end to help you pick out a great book!


1. Personalized Library Embosser – $23.95


Now this is awesome! Customize your very own library embosser to print your name on each book that you own. Imagine going through years of books and printing your name on each one. Then, when it comes time to purge the collection a bit and you sell off or donate them, people all over will have a book with your name on it. Or even on the other side of this situation, you gift someone this embosser and down the line find a book with their name on it! It’s a fun idea and makes growing your own library something to look forward to.



2. Cigarette Box Books – $60 (Pack of 6)

Not only are these books easy to carry and fun to read, but they are also a great conversation starter. “Where did you find those?” you may be asked.

3. Floating Bookshelf – $24 (Pack of 4)

Also, just look at how cool they look! You will definitely get some compliments on your book collection.


4. Obvious State Quote Illustrations – $19.20


Obvious States, an Etsy shop that deserves more credit, creates these amazing literary quote prints from famous authors such as Kate Chopin, T.S. Eliot, Jules Verne, F.
