Great Gifts for Book Worms

Gift guide for book worms

I am a crafter through and through but I also love to read.

Last Christmas I shared a gift guide for crafters, things that us craft loving people would actually want to receive as a gift. This year I’ve picked another of my loves and found some great gifts for readers, book worms, bibliophiles ….. people who love to read!

Gift ideas for book lovers

So here are my top picks of book themed gift ideas. Click on any of these photos to go straight to the place to buy these gifts (they are all Etsy shops as I’m a huge Etsy fan). I’ve added where in the world the sellers are based too, it can be helpful with timing to know how far your purchases are going to have to travel.

I love the idea of a year long temperature project even though I’ve never actually made one. Isn’t this temperature library cross stitch design from Kristi’s Corner just gorgeous. The perfect gift for a friend who reads AND loves cross stitch or just make one for yourself!

How about a t shirt, almost everyone loves a good T shirt don’t they? You quite literally can’t have too many and they are a great gift for almost any age. I love this “The book was better” t shirt from UK based The King Concept.

It’s possible that every reading fanatic NEEDS one of these journals. Peanut Butter Taco sell them from the US and they take a little while to arrive overseas so they might be an “on it’s way” gift this Christmas unless you are quick but totally worth the wait I think. See their listing for all the details.

This Instant download printable “Life is better with a book” from Volume 2 is a message that’s hard to disagree with. No waiting for your item to arrive with this one. The files are ready for you to download and then print at home or take to a printers for a top quality version practically straight away no matter where you are in the world. All you need to do then is pop it in a frame and your gift is ready!

Sitting in a comfy chair with a mug of tea (or coffee) whilst you read a book is one of life’s great pleasures! Make your mug book themed and, well life doesn’t get much better does it? What could be cuter than a fox reading a book? This mug is from Adnil Boutique (based in the UK)

This set of pencils is awesome. I love stationery (who doesn’t?) so a set of pencils with witty reading quotes seem like a perfect gift to me! They are from UK based seller Bettie Confetti.

This next idea is perfect - a little book locket with a secret message inside! How fabulous is that? It’s from Silk Purse Sows Ear who are based in the UK. Put one of these on your present list right now!!

Something for fans of the Handmaid’s tale, a bracelet stamping with our favourite quote. This is from Completely Wired Jewel based in the US.

For someone who really loves a traditional book how about one of these personalised thumb book page holders? They are from Engaged Book in the US.

Does your bookworm need something to transport all those books in? How about a handy tote bag like this one from Perfectly Bespoke in the UK.

Book shaped cookie cutters, how cute is that? These are from Bakerlogy in the UK

In my own Etsy shop I have a range of literary based cards, ones with quotes from Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Little Women, Alice in Wonderland and more general “I love reading” designs too.
