Happy Happy Sunday! 💖 I recently finished my second week of classes at university, and I’m already a growing ball of stress. 😂 BUT! I’ve decided to channel that stressful energy to excitement. September is my birthday month, and I thought it’d be fun to share some amazingly wonderful gift ideas for the book lovers in your life.
1. Books, Books, and More Books
This is pretty self-explanatory, right? 😉📚 Bibliophiles love to read, and it always makes us super happy to know that our friends and family support our passion. When you buy a book for a book lover, you’re cheering them on to read more. However, I highly recommend that you buy a book that suits their tastes. Try looking at their Goodreads’s “Want to Read” list, or snoop around their bookshelf to see what genres and authors they enjoy the most. 💞 Books (+ shipping) can be pretty expensive, especially if your book lover lives internationally, so sending a book their way can go a long way.
2. A Kindle
This is pretty similar to the idea of a physical books. However, I thought that it deserved its own explanation because, in my opinion, a Kindle is one of the best long-term investments you can grant a book lover. 📖📱 I’ve had my Kindle for almost 9 years, and it’s still one of my best purchases of all time. A Kindle is a personal library in the palm of your hand. I’ve shared many reasons in the past why I love e-books, and I always tell people that if you have the money to spend, it’s okay to splurge on this durable, portable, and adorable piece of technology. #NotSponsored #ButIShouldBe
3. Candles, Mugs, & Bookmarks
You might be wondering...why are these 3 items grouped together? That’s because they all fall under the category of items that book lovers can use while reading. 🍵 I always love relaxing with a warm cup of tea, rose-scented candle, and my latest read. ☁🌺 Even though I’m a big advocate of e-books, I still love collecting cute bookmarks. I started using them for my college textbooks too! Other useful gadgets include a reading light or nice pens for annotating.
4. Potential Props
If your book lover is on bookstagram or just loves being artsy in general, they’ll appreciate any fun trinkets that can spice up a picture. 📸 This can be fairy lights and fake flowers. It could be a beautiful tapestry or wall art. This is also a great way to support your book lover’s friends in the book blogging community by buying their merchandise on RedBubble or Society6. 🛍 My personal favorite designs are by AimeeAlways and PaperFury.
5. Fandom Merchandise
Sometimes when we read a book we want to feel a part of its world. 🌎 There’s a reason why your book lover might identify as a Slytherin or Ravenclaw. When we read a great book, it leaves a mark in our hearts and weaves into our identity. ✨ Whether its socks, scarfs, lanyards, or sweaters, we love showing support for our favorite authors, stories, and heroes.
(Bonus) An Experience!
There’s nothing better than sharing a passion you love with a person you love. 💖 Take your book lover to a bookstore, an author signing, or a trip to Harry Potter world! Spend some quality time with your book lover, and let them show you why they are passionate about reading.
