When was the last time you had to get a present for someone and you had no idea what to give them? I know it happens way too often to me…
A lot of people, out there, are not easy to get a present for. Well, that’s not true for book lovers! You can find below the best gifts for a book lover. So here are some options for gifts for people who love books!
Usually, people who love books love writing as well. Like me, for example. 😉 Maybe it’s on my blog or in my journal, but I’ll find a way to write my thoughts somewhere somehow.
Speaking of my journal, that’s the first option I’m gonna give to you. A journal. But not any journal!
Novel Journals have a novel as the lines of the journal. How incredible is this idea? A whole book is written in little letters who form the lines of the journal. You can easily write on them!
You can’t read the book easily, it’s more for decoration so I wouldn’t recommend giving this to someone with the thought of them reading the book.
The cover is really nice and you can bend it. The quote on the cover belongs to the novel that is written inside.
I loved them when I saw them for the first time! I’m going to get every single of them in the next years. The series have tens of them, but I’ll leave you below the ones I like the most as they are the ones I have and I have written in them.
Here is the one I have now: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Novel Journal)
Quote on the cover: True courage is in facing danger when you are afraid
Here is the one I bought as my next journal since I’m finishing my first one: Pride and Prejudice (Novel Journal)
Quote: The distance is nothing when one has a motive
I choose them mostly according to the quotes on the cover and less about the colours or the book. I’d recommend the same to you. Choose something that fits a situation the recipient is in. Maybe they want to take a long trip and they’re afraid to do so. Then, probably the second is the most appropriate. 😀
As I said there are a lot more, so feel free to check more of them!
Writing a journal is a great thing to do. If your friend keeps a journal, they’re gonna love your gift!
For more journals, check my suggestions!
As any true book lover will say, we really love bookmarks. They allow us to know where we have left the story without having to fold the page of the book, which I hate, to be honest.
A lot of them come with a beautiful design on them, maybe a quote from a book or some inspirational words.
Here are some:
Vintage Style Bookmarks
Harry Potter themed
I wasn’t going to have themed gifts, but I saw them and I liked them too much to resist. 😉
They are sold separately as well. So feel free to choose your Hogwarts house!
If you don’t know which it is, here is the official sorting quiz by J.K. Rowling.
I’m Slytherin, btw! 😈
When I started looking for other gifts, I couldn’t imagine that I’d recommend a bookshelf as a gift, but this little bookshelf looks very nice so I added this, too!
Doesn’t it look amazing?
Well, isn’t that the obvious gift? If someone loves books, they’re gonna appreciate pretty much any book but even more so if it’s something they’re interested in. Check some of my book reviews if you want to find some ideas.
If you’re a close friend with the recipient of the gift, take a look at their library or the books that probably have left around the house for some ideas on what they would like!
If everything else fails, there’s always the old good Gift Card. Well, not that old, but a good option. Especially for someone you don’t know that well.
But I have to say, it is a little cold to give them a Gift Card. Some people could be like: “Seriously? Couldn’t he/she spend a little time to think about my gift?”. Others could appreciate the fact that you want to give them the choice of their gift. Especially if they’re trying to save money for something they want to buy.
There are gift cards in many shapes. Some that I found interesting is these:
Gift card as a Bookmark
Not only you give them a way to buy something but they also get to keep the bookmark. It’s a win-win situation!
There are a lot of designs so check all out before you get one.
Gift card as a Greeting card
With a greeting card, you can also write your wishes on it and give them the gift card as well. They have different designs as well for different celebrations. Check them out all so you can get the best one for your friend!
So here are some of the best gifts you could give to someone who loves books. I’d love to hear some more suggestions from you, too! If I think of any more good gifts, I’ll make another list with the rest of them. (I’ll leave the link here if/when I do it).
I hope I helped you! Well, at least, now you have some more ideas!
Have a nice day! And as always…
