It’s that time of year again where the snow is beginning to fall, and you haven’t started holiday shopping yet. Not only that, but you have a bookworm on your list that seems to have every book ever written on their bookshelf. That’s why I’m here to help you find some great bookish items for your book loving friends that aren’t just books. Here is my curated list of amazing bookish gifts to give this holiday season:
1. Penguin Shop Great Gatsby Mug – $12 CAD
Whether the person you’re buying for drinks coffee or tea, they will sure love a bookish mug to drink out of. This one from the Penguin Shop shows off a classic orange Penguin cover, which also makes a great decor piece to display on your bookshelf.
2. Obvious State Tote Bag – William Wordsworth – $24 USD
Nothing compares to shopping around with one of your favourite bookish quotes at hand. These tote bags also have beautiful floral designs, making them super cute to tote around. Yes, I did just make that pun.
3. Princess Leia Star Wars Read Enamel Pin – $10 CAD
Have a Star Wars fan that so happens to like reading? This pin is a great gift for them to show off their two favourite things. Wear it on your clothes, jacket, or bag.
4. Ideal Bookshelf – Custom Print by Jane Mount starting at $105 USD
If you’re looking to go all out for your bookish pal, then look no futher than custom made prints by Jane Mount. If you know the favourite books of your bookworm, you can create your own ideal bookshelf for them to hang on their walls. Choose from a variety of sizes, and number of books, to really delight the bookworm in your life.
5. Life Journey Dark Brown Leather Wrap Journal – $45 CAD
If your bookworm likes to write as much as they read, than a journal is the best gift to give a writer. But to make it an extra special gift, why not try a leather bound journal? It will make the writing process more special than a standard paper journal.
6. Pride and Prejudice Leather Bound Classic – $42.95 CAD
Although I said I wasn’t going to make this list about books, I thought a great way to surprise the bookworm in your life is to get them a special edition of their favourite book. (If one exists). A well loved classic, like Pride and Prejudice, seems a lot more special once it has a unique cover.
7. Rifle Paper Co. Tackle Box – $34 USD
If you have a writer in your life, they might really like some cute stationary to display on their desk or office. Rifle Paper Co. makes a lot of beautiful and unique items with their designs, and this tackle box is no exception.
8. The ABC Market Luke’s Diner Soy Candle – $27.38 CAD
Reading is an experience, so gifting something that will enhance it is always great. This candle from the ABC Market smells like a coffee shop, which is one of the natural habitats of the bookworm species.
9. Matilda Bookworm Unisex T-Shirt – $30 USD
Wear your heart on your sleeve can be taken literally with your favourite book on a T-Shirt. This Matilda T-Shirt is perfect for the kid at heart, or someone who was greatly influenced by Matilda while growing up. There’s also a ton of other bookish T-Shirts at Out of Print.
10. Out of Print – Banned Books Bookmark – $4 USD
Finally, for the person on a budget, getting a bookworm a bookmark is a great way to show you care about them. Also it let’s them know that you think you understand their horror of dog ears.
