Monday Mania #3: 10 Bookish Gift Ideas

When you buy a person a book you run the risk of buying them a title they already have or picking a genre they aren’t fond of. Besides, as a book worm I prefer to choose my own books. That doesn’t mean I don’t like receiving book themed gifts though. Here are a few fun book themed ideas to consider instead:

  1. A personal Library Kit Most people want to share their books but are worried about getting them back, here’s the solution.
  2. Book EndsBookworms usually run out of shelf space long before they stop buying books, these can help with all those books who don’t have a home on the bookcase.
  3. Coffee Mug Sitting down to read a book can be a ritual and having a cup of coffee or tea is a common addition for many readers.
  4. Personalized Book StampBookworms are proud of their book collections and personalizing them can be an honor. This is also a way of reminding people to return your books to you once they are finished.
  5. Blanket People say they are going to curl up with a book for a reason. A blanket is an addition that is always welcome because of the sense of peace it adds to the environment.
  6. Hanging SignsReaders often have a favorite place to read. This spot is their saunctuary. Sometimes it is created intensionally and other times out of lack of space. Either way creating a personal space is deserved.
  7. PillowsReading is an activity that you do sitting down. Why cant you make yourself comfortable why you do it?
  8. Comfy ClothesPeople are usually at home when they are reading and they want to be comfortable while they do it. If you know the reader is fond of a specific series, like Harry Potter, they may consider wearing the right clothes out in public.
  9. Book MarksMany readers have a quark about not wanting to bend the edges of the books/magazines/comics they read and these were ment for exactly this.
  10. Journal Journals have many purposes. I have always used one to keep track of the books I read and what I thought of the books. My journals were my first blog.




I was a bibliophile before I learned the alphabet. From an early age I have used books to relieve the pressures of reality. I was I teenager before I appreciated the learning power of books. Now, as an adult, I read books for both learning and relaxation.
