20 Awesome Gift Ideas For Bookworms (That Aren’t Books)

Stating the obvious, I LOVE books. But as a bookworm, it’s not my favorite thing when someone gives me a book as a gift (unless they’re from my favorite authors ofcourse, *wink). Why? Because I always prefer to choose my own books to read.

So if you have someone on your Christmas list that is a bookworm, it’s always wise to play it safe and get them some book-themed accessories instead. And here’s my 20 awesome gift ideas for bookworms you can add to your cart.

Start holiday shopping here, and don’t feel bad if you get one or two items for yourself, *wink.

    • Those are great. That book lamp is so unique. I have one of those book holder pillows- great for when you don’t want to hold up your e-reader.

      Oh yes, I’m a lot like you in that I like to choose my own books so accessories are nice. I have to stay away from Etsy b/c there are so many hand-made book lover things there.

      • That lamp sure is unique, I’m actually itching to get one, hehe.
        True about etsy. If I want to window shop, I always go look in Amazon because if I go check out etsy, I’ll be bankrupt. There’s so many gorgeous things there!
