The book lover on your list can be one of the trickiest people to shop for—up there with that relative you haven’t talked to in years or that person you just started dating.
While the obvious gift—a novel—might be the first thing that comes to mind, when someone reads several books a week odds are high she might have the book you’re thinking of gifting. So, I’ve compiled a list of reading accessories that the book lover on your list will love receiving in addition to book recommendations broken down by category!
reading journal: When you’re someone who reads constantly, it can be easy to forget what you’ve read and most importantly what you’d recommend. A reading journal like this one here is a great gift to help the reader on your list keep track.
an item to set the mood for reading: Reading for me is an experience! I love getting cozy when I sit down with a book by lighting a candle or wrapping myself up in a blanket in front of a fire. Help the book lover on your list get in the mood for reading with something to enhance her reading experience.
coasters and cheese boards for book club meetings: Book clubs are as much (if not more!) about the wine and cheese than they are about the book everyone was reading. The book lover on your list will love these items for her next book club meeting.
For the women’s fiction fan: Nine Perfect Strangers
For the history buff: The Tattooist of Auschwitz
For those who like history and a love story wrapped up into one: The Great Alone
A feel good story that will warm your heart: Don’t Let Me Go
For fans of Nicholas Sparks: Waiting at Hayden’s
