Christmas Gifts for the Book Lover

As I keep saying (and will continue to say) in my posts, Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Shopping for the lovely people in your life can be fun but also intimidating if you don't know where to start. Do you have a book lover in your life that you're trying to Christmas shop for? You'll definitely find something in this post. If you're a book lover that wants to give someone a hint about what you'd like, send them over here! 

A Kindle Case

This adorable felt owl case is great for the someone you know who loves their Kindle. Find it on Etsy.

Kindle Touch or Nook Simple Touch


-I'm partial to the Kindle just because I have one, but I hear the quality of either is great. It may just come down to whether you have a Barnes & Noble membership or Amazon Prime. If you're shopping for someone and you're not sure if they'll want an eReader, JUST GET IT. Chances are they'll fall in love with it just like countless others who had eReaders forced on them during last year's Christmas but now can't part with it. If not, you can always return it. Don't forget the gift receipt!

A box set of their favorite series

-I wouldn't buy a nice Harry Potter box set for myself, but I certainly would not object if someone gave it to me as a gift. If the HP Set is too steep for you, there's also The Hunger Games Trilogy, Lord of the Rings, A Game of Thrones, among many others.

This awesome tote definitely speaks for itself. Find this and other cute totes here.

Invisible Floating Bookshelf
This cool bookshelf is perfect for the books we keep stacked on the bedside table. Keep your table clear of clutter and let your loved-one store their books in the air. Buy it here.

Bookish Stocking Stuffers

Gift cards for bookstores or ebooks
A book light
A cute (or custom!) bookmark
A "This Book Belongs To:" stamp
Your favorite quotes from a book
