Book lovers can be a challenge to buy for: on the one hand, you know that your favorite bookworm loves books. Unfortunately, it’s risky to give him or her an actual book because there’s a great likelihood that he/she has already read said book. It can also be difficult to know somebody’s literary taste well enough to pick out the right book. Which is where this gift guide comes in!
I know what you’re thinking: Kendra, it’s not Christmas time! Why are you sharing a gift guide? But hear me out: despite what big box stores and basically the entire marketing world would have us believe, the Holidays don’t have a corner on the gift giving market. We buy gifts throughout the year, for birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day and Father’s day, Valentine’s Day, National Best Friends of Dog Lovers Day … and if you’re like me, you might enjoy giving the occasional gift on a random Tuesday, just to show a loved one how much you care. It’s because these excellent giftable occasions exist that I’m sharing a gift guide on a nondescript Wednesday in March.
If you have a gift-giving opportunity on the horizon and are looking for just the right gift for the book lover in your life, here are some excellent ideas—thirty-three of them, in fact. (A fun coincidence since I happened to turn 33 myself this month!) And if you are the primary bookworm in your circles, you have my permission to treat yourself to one of these fun items!
Book Worm Wrap Ring // Library Book Case Leggings // Jane Eyre Leather Book Purse // She Reads Books to Live T-Shirt // Well Read Book Bracelet // The Reader’s Necklace Book Locket // Great Gatsby Cufflinks // Out of Print Banned Book Tote // Literary Origami Earrings // Library Card Socks
