gifts for book lovers

If you want to take gift-giving to the next level for your favorite bookworms, then we’ve got some great ideas for you!

We all want to give the perfect gift: wonderful, meaningful, and realistically attainable. Instead of spending countless hours trying to come up with the best gift for the bibliophiles in your life, let us help you! Here are some clever literary-themed gift ideas and resources:

Find book-inspired gifts.

  • Cafepress.com: This website makes it easy to personalize a gift. You can make a custom T-shirt with a quote or a mug with a photo of a favorite author.
  • Etsy is also a great source for unique items inspired by favorite authors or books. For example, here are To Kill A Mockingbird related gifts.
  • On Litographs, you can find all kinds of products designed from the text of favorite books.
  • Take a look at the Writer’s Relief Gifts For Writers & Readers Pinterest board, filled with awesome creations for bookworms and writers that we think absolutely rock. You can follow the links from our board right to the sites where you can buy these special gifts!

Give books…books…books!

  • If you know someone who is interested in a series but hasn’t gotten around to reading all the books, the missing volume(s) would be a welcome gift.
  • Get the first edition of your loved one’s favorite book. AbeBooks.com is a website that makes these books relatively easy to find. You can even personalize the edition you give them by annotating the book and writing your own comments on the passages.
  • Kindles and Nooks have become a way for avid readers to always have a multitude of books right at their fingertips. An e-reader could be a great gift for someone who doesn’t seem to ever stop reading. Pair it with a retro book-style smart case.

Get creative.

  • Create a diorama of a scene from one of your friend’s favorite books.
  • Make a book clutch or purse by using the outer cover of a favorite book. What more could a stylish bookworm want?
  • Construct a book keepsake box for your loved one to store his or her valuables.
  • Build an actual book table! Bore a hole through a stack of books, put a rod through, and simply add the base and the top tray that serves as the tabletop.

“Getting that first poem published was the hardest threshold to cross. My team at Writer’s Relief kept encouraging me…then came the acceptance! We celebrated…then I continued writing, and Writer’s Relief continued doing the wonderful work they do!”

—King Grossman, Writer
