What do you give the book lover who has everything? The answer is simple — more books, of course!
With an infinite number available, you’ll never be stuck for ideas, not least when LoveReading is on hand with curated Christmas inspiration ideas for every taste. We’re talking everything from beautiful boxsets and lip-smackingly tasty cook books, to winter-warmer fiction and inspiring sports biographies.
But back to thinking about the book lover who has everything. Dedicated to “readers and writers everywhere”, we can’t recommend Ex Libris: 100+ Books to Read and Reread more highly. In the words of LoveReading MD, Deborah, it’s “a beautiful, beautiful reminder of the power and the joy of books.”
For book-lovers who like to keep track of their reading, it doesn’t get better than My Book Journal: A Reading Diary for Bibliophiles. This gorgeous journal allows readers to record their literary voyages, with space for reviews, ratings and book-club questions.
Special mention must also be made of Bedside Companion for Book Lovers. Covering an exhilarating mix of fact, fiction, letters, diaries and essays on the subject of books and reading, it also shares tips on caring for your most precious books. In addition, it advises where to find the world’s most magical libraries and bookshops.
All that said, chances are, if you’re buying gifts for the bibliophiles in your life, there comes a time when you want to branch out and give something a little different, or at least mix things up. As a result, we’ve also selected some special non-book gift ideas book lovers are sure to adore.
Kicking off with a personal favourite I really, really hope someone puts in my stocking, we have a super-cute book mark scarf — irresistible! Love vintage style? Check out this trio of chic magnetic bookmarks.
Of course, every devoted book lover needs something to transport their spoils in, which is where this super-cool Kafka tote bag will come in very handy. Or how about this gorgeous Wizard of Oz cloth carrier?
