10 Gift Ideas for Book Lovers

1. Antique Typewriter

For those writers out there or for book lovers who want to decorate their shelves, an antique typewriter is the perfect gift! You can find these on ebay or at your local antique shop. You can even find some that look vintage but are brand new on Amazon. Wherever you get it, the person you are getting it for will love it. The clicking of the keys and the ring it makes when you slide your paper back and forth is very nostalgic and a great way to get people excited.

I bought myself one a few years back and even though I don't write with it, it's the perfect decor piece I can use for every season.

Price Range: $$$

2. Scratch Off Poster

Nothing is more fun than a challenge, especially a book challenge! Check out this amazing scratch off poster where once you read a book from the list you get to scratch it off revealing the cover. These are super fun and don't take up a lot of room. For people who read fast, this is a great gift for them.

I have a similar one but for traveling. It's always fun coming back and getting to scratch off the map showing all the places I've been.

Price Range: $-$$

3. A HB90 Planner

For writers, planning is everything! Especially when it comes to characters and plot development. This is why getting them an HB90 Planner is the perfect gift. Made for writers, this planner helps set writers up for each quarter of the year making it easier when it comes to writing. There is a course to go along with how the planner is used but there are plenty of free videos online for those who don't want to spend the extra money.

I haven't personally bought the HB90 Planner, but I have used ideas from it to do my own planning.

Price Range: $-$$

4. A Candle

A candle may seem like a basic gift but not when it smells like book pages! While book lovers read, they can light this candle and have the whole room smell of their favorite scent. The best part, this gift will last for weeks if not months!

Price Range: $-$$

5. Sticky Notes

This may seem like a simple gift, but sticky notes are super useful for both writers and book lovers. Instead of writing in the books while they are reading, book lovers can simply write a note of their thoughts and stick it on the page as to not ruin the book.

Writers, on the other hand, are constantly needing notes they can move around while plotting a book. So even though simple, this is a gift they will love to get over and over again.

Price Range: $

6. Writer's Retreat

For anyone wanting to write professionally a writer's retreat may be the perfect gift for them. During this event, you get to meet likeminded people who present ways to help you write and promote your book. These typically take place over several days and are filled with information.

Even though this is more on the expesnive side with having to pay for hotel fees, food, and the event itself, the inforamtion one gains is totally worth it!

Price Range: $$$$

7. Book Press

Reading books is a hobby within itself, but for book lovers wanting to expand their hobbies, a book press might just be what they are looking for.

They can create their own books from scratch with the help of a book press which will keep their pages straight and flat while drying. This would also be fun for writers who might want to create their own writing journals. There are several Youtube videos online to get some awesome ideas from.

Price Range: $$$$

8. Book Covers

This might seem old school, but everyone needs a good book cover when trying to protect their books on the go. To help keep covers and pages damage free, a book cover also helps hide the original book cover for those who might want to be more secretive about their reading list.

The best part, you can purchase multiple with different images and switch them out daily meaning this is a great gift for those book lovers out there.

Price Range: $

9. Enamel Pins

Buy or customize your own enamel pins to hand out as gifts. There are so many to choose from which means there is something for everyone.

Books, pens, quotes, etc. are some great examples to get your book lover or writer this holiday season. The best part, you can keep adding to their collection year after year.
