Looking for a perfect gift for the book lover/ bookworm in your life? If so, here is a list of fun and unique ideas to thrill any bookworm. The cherry on the top- these ideas are not another ‘latest novel’ gift that they have, probably, read by now anyway!
Book Lover/ Bookworm Gift Ideas
#1 A Book Lover Tote Bag
Help them carry their love for books on their sleeves… err shoulder.
A tote bag comes handy during the day to day tasks. It can also come in handy for carrying a paperback book or a Kindle and it is perfect for flaunting their love for reading when they are the outdoors!
Gift them a tote bag- with a nice print, a funny quote or lines from their favorite author. You can also order tote bags with custom printed quotes or lines online easily. They will be carrying the bag everywhere they go.
#2 A Literary Throw Blanket
This literary blanket is a great way of personalizing their reading area. It will look great on their reading chair/ sofa or they can even use it in their guest room next to their majestic display of book collection.
With this blanket, they can literally wrap themselves in the literary world as they pick up their book to journey into a different world. It is comfy, made of cotton and spectacular to look at.
#3 Literary Mug
These are not just any ordinary mug, these are literary mugs.
Check out the Banned Books mug with quotes from banned books that were considered too controversial in the past, Jane Austen mug– the lines of which your book lovers probably remember verbatim and Edgar Allan Poe mug famous quotes.
It is the perfect gift for both male and female book nerds. These mugs are as much fun to read as any book. A great companion to their coffee time.
#4 Book Lover Spoon
And since I mentioned coffee and mugs above, I couldn’t help but suggest to add this lovely book lover spoon as a fun gift for a reader to the list.
#5 A Makeup Bag
An ‘Alice In Wonderland‘ inspired makeup bag is any book lover’s dream. She will probably throw out her fancy makeup bag to carry a piece of her favorite book with her when she is at work, traveling or just stepping out to socialize.
The picture on the bag is perfect too – Alice and Mr. Rabbit at the table.
#6 A Sit Up Reading Pillow
Most people sit on a bed or a lounge chair, bean bag, etc., when reading. All of which do not provide good support for the back and arms.
Do them a favor, and gift them something that will make their hobby more pleasurable and less stressful for their back. A book reading pillow like this one (available on Amazon) will support their back as they read their favorite book.
Unlike other such pillows, this pillow is filled with foam, not cotton or feathers, so it keeps its form and doesn’t shift or move a lot. It also doesn’t sag poorly as time goes on.
#7 Novel Tea Bags
What goes perfectly with a nice book? A cup of steaming tea!
How wonderful would it be if every cup of tea was accompanied by a literary quote? These Novel Tea Bags provide an experience for the book lover with their tea bags.
The tea bags include quotes from some of the most well know authors. The saying on each of the tea bags is a joy to read. The leftover tea labels can be repurposed later into a unique wall decor piece, like, a bunting/ paper string, a collage, etc.
#8 Creative & Funny Cocktail/ Recipe Book
Just because someone is reading all the time doesn’t mean they don’t love a drink from time to time! That rhymed pretty well, didn’t it?
Everyone can use a drink and a little humor in life. Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist is just the right mix of cocktail recipes and humor for your bookworm.
It is also the Amazon best seller in the cooking humor category.This book is full of funny titles, descriptions and pun-filled illustrations that make it a jolly good gift for a book lover.
There are several literary versions of this style of book, like, cooking humor books, and so much more. Pick one according to your book lover’s reading taste buds.
#9 Book Lover T-shirt
The book lover T-Shirt is a great gift idea for a book lover be it man, woman, teenager or even a kid!
Till the time your book lover can fully transition to Kindle, let’s make sure they have something that keeps their books organized.
Bookends are great for not only organizing and storing the books but they are also a great way to display the book collection. They come in all shapes and sizes so they make a great gift for fiction and non- fiction readers alike.
For the fiction lovers who like to get lost in the world of dragons, I like this handcrafted dragon bookend on Amazon. This bookend will impress any book lover that loves the mystical harry potter, games of thrones, etc novels or books.

#16 An Audio Book
Don’t think that an audiobook is just a simple gift. Listening provides a lot of psychological stimulation. It activates the language processing part of our brain and the sensory complex.A
If your loved one has not tried an audio book as yet, for the fear of not liking the experience. Go ahead and gift them an affordable audio book like this one that let’s them try one book for free and it’s only $4.99/ month!
This price can’t be beat. It could turn out to be the kind of gift they didn’t know they needed, until they tried it.
