Christmas Gift Guide - Gifts For Book Lovers

I think buying someone a book for Christmas can be quite difficult as you can never be sure of the persons preferances, and if you are buying for someone like me, they probably already have a giant stack of books they still need to get through and may already actually own the book you are planning to gift. This is why I've made a little guide of things to get bookish people that aren't actually books! Here are my top picks:

bookish themed gifts

1. A gift voucher for a book store - Starting off nice and simple here. As I've mentioned, picking a book for someone can be a challenge, so a gift voucher to their favourite book store is always a good option as they can choose the book they want. I actually love getting vouchers for book stores. I do not advise getting an Amazon voucher though as these often end up getting used on things that are not books! 
2. Obama Llama £21.99 - This is a board game that is all about guessing the correct rhyme which are weird and hilarious such as 'Ginger Spice has head lice' and 'Theresa May using hair spray'. Bookworms will most likely have a head start on this game because of their knowledge of words, but this is fun for all of the family to play making it great for Christmas. Available from Amazon here.
3. A reading journal £4.50 - Especially good for any book bloggers, this little jounral is a really cute way for book lovers to track what they have read throughout the year as well as give them little ratings and reviews. Available on: Literary Emporium
4. Frida Kahlo candle £12 - If your book friends are anything like me, then they love to have a candle or 100 burning in the background when reading. Frida Kahlo is an icon and this candle is scented with lilac, cactus, waterlily, frangipani and a hint of vanilla.  Available from: Flamingo Candles
5. Kindle Paperwhite £119,99 - If you are feeling like splurging a Kindle is definitely a fantastic gift. I love my Kindle and the latest upgraded Paperwhite is even lighter and waterproof, something I have been wanting for a while from the Kindle. I've got this on my Christmas list. Available from: Amazon
6. Tequila Mockingbird £7.49 - The only book to make my list, this is full of cocktails that are literary themed. Great for any book lovers who appreciate a good tipple. Available from Amazon
7. Bath shelf £27.50 - Another one that is on my wish list, these super awesome bath shelves are perfect for when you want to relax in the bath with space for candles, a glass of wine and a book/tablet. Honestly couldn't think of anything more perfect for the bath. Available from: Etsy
8. Reusable coffee cup £7 - Last on my list is something that every basic book bitch needs in their life, a reusable coffee cup. This one is customasiable and comes in other colours, but you know I have to go for shiny gold! Environmentally friendly and perfect for morning coffee and reading. Available from: Esty

I'm now trying desperately not to buy all these things for myself and wait patiently for Christmas! 


  1. You picked some really great ideas here! I would definitely recommend getting a book lover for a Kindle, I absolutely LOVE mine. I also love that personalised Starbucks mug, now I want one haha.

  2. I bought my mum one of those little book journals for her birthday last year! I'd love a bath shelf - I love reading in the bath but I get cold because I have to sit so far out of the bath otherwise the book will get wet (obviously) so it'd be nice to just pop it on a shelf!


  3. I absolutely love gift guides, especially when they are more unusual than the ones that you always see. This is perfect

  4. Oo I love the bath shelf so much - definitely going on my Christmas wish list :)

  5. That Frida candle is so sweet! I adore her

    Brenna -

  6. lovely choices here. I would love the bath tray I think that would be fab and I'd use it a lot x

  7. Great ideas, it's always a worry that if you buy a book for someone they might not like it! I so want a bath shelf, it's been a dream of mine to own one for so long aha. Lovely ideas :)

  8. Oh there are some super ideas here. Love the Frida Kahlo candle though - my fav xx

  9. A reading journal would be a great idea for myself as i love seeing how many books I’ve read through the year!

  10. I would love a gift voucher for a book store myself. I collect travel books and this would be the perfect gift for me

  11. That game sounds like so much fun!

  12. Do you know what a gift voucher for a book store would be lovely for my mum. She rarely gets the chance to treat herself and would love to spend an afternoon browsing for something she really wanted to read x

  13. I love the idea of the book journal, I’d love of those for Christmas this year x

  14. I love the idea of a book shop gift card, I am a huge bookworm so this would be perfect for me. Also I love the bath shelf too, a great item for someone who likes to relax with a glass of bubbly. X

  15. A book shop gift card is a fabulous Christmas gift idea! My daughter is a huge bookworm, with an already huge stash of books to make her way through!
