Best Book Gifts for Bookworms
While I do love to hold a book in hand, ebooks are the way to go and every voracious bookworm needs an e-reader. The latest Kindle is awesome and is a sure gift hit.
The best gift for book lovers is more books!
A gift card is hands down a must for any reader so that he/she can buy the latest romance book release! They can use it to fill up their e-reader, buy paperback books or purchase a book subscription.
This is a fantastic gift idea for any bookworm.
Just like a gift card purchase, buying your bookworm a Kindle Unlimited membership is giving them the gift of more books.
The Kindle Unlimited library is full of amazing romance books that your romance book reader is sure to devour so this is a great and affordable gift!
Does your book lover enjoy audio books? If so, then a membership to Audible is your best bookish gift to give.
Audible gives your book lover access to thousands of books from top authors. It’s a great gift for audiobook lovers!
This is the book gift that keeps on giving! A book subscription gives your bookworm a gift every month. Who wouldn’t want that?
For the romance book readers, there are several romance book subscriptions that deliver romance books each and every month.
You can pick your subscription based on the genre of romance book your book lover likes or you can pick a subscription based on the other fun, unique items that are included with it.
Check out my review and list of best romance book subscription boxes.
Every reader has a list of their most favorite books if not one special book that reigns as their top romance book. Why not get your reader a signed copy of their favorite from the author?
You’ll earn big points with this gift! Many authors also have their own shops on their web sites that sell their books and other merchandise related to their beloved titles and characters so check those out as well.
Bookish Gifts that Aren’t Books
Reading Accessories for the Bookworm
For those prone to late night reading, blue light blocking glasses are a must have in my book.
It’s SO hard to put a book down when it’s just too good, but if you’re using an e-reader after the sun goes down, the blue light emitting from it starts to mess with your melatonin levels and your sleep cycle.
Blue light blocking glasses come to the rescue as they block the blue light from the e-reader so you can read into the wee hours without disrupting your sleep. There are many stylish options to choose from but these are my favorite:
Audio book lovers require a great pair of bluetooth headphones especially if they are commuting on the train or have little ears at home so they can keep those steamy love scenes all to themselves.
Does your romance reader listen to a favorite author’s or romance book blogger’s podcast? These bluetooth headphones will make a perfect gift for her too!
Does your romance reader love to listen to her audio books in a nice, relaxing bath?
Don’t risk her phone or tablet by water. Instead, she can sync it to a waterproof bluetooth speaker to crank out those beautiful words while she relaxes in bubbles.
It’s too easy to get lost in a book, but your hands and arms can get tired holding a book or e-reader.
This lap pillow will make reading a pain free past time. Plus, it comes in a lot of fun colors!
This gift doubles as a book holder and a beautiful book display. I love how this enables a book lover to just pick up their book wherever they left off.
If your book lover reads well into the night, a book light is a great gift. She can escape with her favorite book boyfriend without disturbing anyone else.
I love this beautiful bookmark. Not only can it mark your book lover’s place, but it can also be used to mark pages with their favorite excerpts to go back to and reread whenever they wish.
What romance book reader wouldn’t love a heart book mark? We are all about the happily ever afters!
