Looking for unique gifts for book lovers? The ideas on this list will give you some quirky inspiration for gifts for your favorite reader and bookworm.
Buying gifts for bookworms isn’t always easy. Yes, you know they would always be happy with books–but which books? What haven’t they read? What are they dying to read? Do you really need to expand their already-huge TBR or add more to their overflowing bookshelves?
A gift card to buy books is always a good choice–you know your reader will love more books–but sometimes you want to do something different.
These gift ideas for book lovers include some items you and your reader may have never seen before, and others you may not have thought of that are sure to enhance their reading life.
It’s kind of satisfying to find gifts for readers that are unique and sometimes quirky nods to your bookworm’s favorite hobby. They’ll be thrilled to dress up their bookshelves, their walls, their books, and even their pets with bookish gifts to make them smile.
And if you’re the bookworm, treat yourself to a gift that celebrates your devotion to reading, literature, and story.
Quirky and Unique Gifts for Bookworms
This is on my personal wish list! A Kindle remote seemed a little ridiculous until I realized how useful it would be in the various ways I use my Kindle: on a treadmill, on an exercise bike, cuddled under blankets, on a table in front of me. I also have long-time elbow issues, so minimizing the repetitive movement of my arm will be nice.
I can’t overstate how important a Kindle case with a STAND is for me! I use it so often–while grabbing lunch or coffee, and sometimes even while cooking. It was also essential when my kids were babies; I could stand it on the arm of a chair while they ate or slept on me. Get it for any friends or family expecting a baby! (This one is for 10th gen Kindle Paperwhite. Here’s one for 11th generation.)
You’ll smile every time you mark your spot and each time you pick up your book.
It’s maybe not the most unique thing on this list, but a subscription to the Book of the Month Club is one of my favorite gifts to give (and get!). It’s easy, which is nice, but it also means that the people you care about get a new little gift from you each month when they choose their next book.
I love these reader sculptures and would love to get ALL of the poses to place among the books on my shelves.
Even book lovers need wifi and now you can hide the boxes and cords with books. You can’t actually read these, but they look so much nicer than the electronics.
Remember the good old library card days every time you grab your mirror.
These book soaps are too cute to use, but you know you want them in your bathroom.
The next time you need a good comeback, take inspiration from the greatest wordsmiths of all time.
For book lovers who spend a lot of time listening to audiobooks while walking or running, these bone-conduction headphones allow you to listen while maintaining full awareness of all the noises around you. I spend a lot of time walking and listening and feel much safer with these headphones.
I have big dreams for a full library wall in my home (complete with ladder). In addition to the books, I’m excited to add little surprises like the sculptures above and these cool little book nooks.
