A Bookworm’s Wish List: Literary Gifts for Readers

Looking to treat the bookworm in your life to something special? The quickest way to a reader’s heart is a gift card to their local indie bookstore, but we think your reader deserves that and more! Here are some of our favorite gifts for readers—all you need to do is order and wrap.

This is the perfect candle to light as you wait for Mr. Tumnus to arrive—though we’d recommend lighting it only after you walk through the flammable wooden wardrobe.


For the Mother of Books, there is no better gift than these dragon egg bookends.


Discreet enough to hide on any bookshelf, this literary classic hides a secret compartment.


Give the gift of reading with Book of the Month! Every month the Book of the Month team selects five buzzy new books that readers will love, and the lucky recipient of this gift will get to pick which book they get in the mail. If you’re looking for a bookish gift for yourself or a friend, this box certainly delivers.


Why use wrapping paper when you could instead package the book you’re giving in an adorable book sleeve?


Watch your bookworm’s face light up when they unwrap this cleverly disguised book lamp


The best part of winter is curling up with a good book and a cup of tea while the snow comes down. Some readers prefer Darjeeling, others like Oolong, but our favorite is literary tea.


This custom book letter will make the perfect addition to a reader’s bookshelf.


One of our favorite new finds this season is Page Anchor—a bookmark that keeps your spot and holds your book open so you can focus on what really matters: reading. Personally, we’re fans of the gorgeous rose gold anchor.

(Psst: As a holiday treat, we partnered with Page Anchor to give you 15% off when you use the code BOOKISH15 between 12/3 and 12/9)

This enamel pin speaks a universal truth.


Maybe we’re biased, but we think this is the perfect pillow to curl up with for reading late into the night.
