This post was originally published in November 2020. It has been updated with fresh ideas for bookish gifts this holiday season.
Book lovers, unite (after just one more chapter)! I’m sharing the absolute best gifts for all the bookworms out there.
This is hands down, my favorite gift guide that I’ve ever created. I’ve discovered so many incredible small businesses through bookstagram, and with the help of some of my bookish friends, I was able to curate a pretty extensive list of gift options at multiple price points!
I also included some discount codes provided by a few of the shops that will help you save at checkout. Hopefully, this guide will provide some inspiration when it comes to shopping for the book lovers in your life (even if that book lover is you).
The Ultimate Guide to Bookish Gifts
Swipe through and click on the photos for the slides above and below each category to be redirected to the retailer’s website. Almost all of them are small businesses (with the exceptions being the few items from Amazon like the Kindle and reading light).
I think if I could only collect one thing for the rest of my life, I would choose mugs. I love them. My go-to’s are definitely the “London” mug from Wicked Whimsy Boutique (ESPRESSO10) and the “Just One More Page” mug from Novel Novelties Co. (ESPRESSO15).
It’s no secret that I’m the biggest fan of graphic tees, pullovers, hoodies, etc. If it has a cute phrase on it, I’m sold. Most of my favorites are from The Bookish Shop, but I also love the few I have from Storiarts (ESPRESSO).
Alright, so I only own one book sleeve, but I’d love to invest in more. These make great gifts for those who like to read on-the-go. It’s so important to keep those books safe!
I’m insanely picky with my candles since I’m allergic to soy. It makes finding bookish candles a little complicated. However, Janzy Wax Co. has the most incredible coconut wax options. My entire home is filled with them! Use ESPRESSO10 for a discount at checkout.
From prints to tote bags to coffee and more, this category has all the random bookish items that really make a bookworm’s life a little better. I personally love shopping from Wicked Whimsy Boutique (ESPRESSO10) and Storiarts (ESPRESSO)!
