1.      A New Book

There is no such thing as too many books. Check out your friend’s stack of books and make a list of his/her favorite authors. You can use this to inform your buying decision. Look for a new author in a genre they enjoy or snap up the latest in a much-loved series of books.

2.      Book Voucher

If you don’t have a clue what book to buy, you can always play it safe by gifting a book voucher that can be redeemed in any good bookstore, online or offline. This is a gift that will always be most welcome.

3.      Book Candles

Book candles are a wonderful gift for book lovers everywhere. Anyone who loves books will be thrilled to receive an old book candle that smells of dusty shelves and aged paper. It is the perfect accompaniment to a classic novel. They can light their candle, snuggle up in a cozy chair, and re-read Murder on the Orient Express.

4.      Signed Copy of a Favorite Book

Popular authors frequently do book signings when they are promoting their latest novel. Check out the author’s schedule and find out if they are stopping in a town or city near you. If they are, head along and wait your turn in the queue. Any book lover would be delighted to receive a signed copy of a novel written by their favorite author.

5.      Signed Photo of a Favorite Author

Contact the PR agency for an author and ask them politely if they could send a signed photo. Most will be more than happy to oblige.

6.      Kindle

Kindle’s are ideal for people who love to read. You can store thousands of books on a Kindle device and because the battery lasts for ages, they are great for long journeys and commuting to and from work. Any book lover will appreciate a new Kindle as a gift.

7.      First Edition

First Editions are not always easy to track down, but with a bit of perseverance, it can be done. Contact book dealers and visit old bookstores. It is also worth looking online, as many dealers sell books via online marketplaces such as eBay.

8.      Snuggle Blanket

A soft snuggle blanket is a nice gift for a book lover. It will keep them warm when they lose track of time.

9.      Journaling Set

Many avid readers dream of writing their own novel. A journaling set is a good place to begin, as it encourages the writing habit and helps a budding author compose their innermost thoughts.

10.  Literary Quote Framed Print

Select a quote from a favorite novel and have it framed. It’s a nice little gift that any book lover will appreciate.
