Let’s face it, there are people who read, and then there are people who read.
In the holiday spirit, we’ve selected a handful of items for that second group to complement their already-full library.
From literary-themed socks to high-quality headphones perfect for audiobooks, these gifts might not be as easy to wrap as books, but they’re bound to please all the same.
A book that turns into a lamp
When it’s closed, the LEDITOP wooden book light looks like an ordinary journal.
But when its pages are fanned open, warm LED rays burst out in a brilliant semicircle. Magnets in the front and book cover allow the light to be positioned in a variety of locations, even upside down.
The lamp is wireless and rechargeable via USB.
A stylish bookend
Stacking books in wobbly columns is no way to keep them organized.
Give your bookworm a bookend that adds some flair to their shelf — it’s a hip and elegant way to keep things tidy.
A book-scented candle
If you’re buying gifts for a bookworm, chances are they’ve stuffed their nose into a book at least once.
A book-scented candle lets them bask in that woody scent and still keep their face far enough away to actually read their book — a win-win!
E-Readers are the best ways to read as many books as you want without overloading your bookshelf. Plus, they let you download any book the instant you decide to read it.
If the person you’re buying for swears by paper books, they can at least try the electronic version. You might just create a convert.
A case for the e-reader
If the person already has an e-reader (or you want to make sure they don’t break their new one), consider getting them a case.
Cases make great gifts because they’re low-risk, practical, and actually somewhat personal — if you get a cool one.
A kooky bookmark
If you cringe when your book lover dog-ears pages, save them from the madness with a bookmark.
But don’t go for some el-cheapo paper bookmark; invest a little more in something with attitude. (What, bookmarks can’t be bold?)
A subscription to Audible
If the person you’re buying for has a long commute or spends a lot of time in the kitchen, they might not have as much time to read as they’d like.
Audiobook distributor Audible has more than 180,000 audiobooks in its library, and offers subscriptions that allow users to download one book of their choice per month. They come in 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month packages.
Quality headphones to listen to the audiobooks
These pair nicely with an Audible subscription if the person you’re buying for doesn’t want to play their audiobooks through an external speaker.
One of the best options for earbuds that deliver a great listening experience at an affordable price are the Xiaomi Mi Hybrid Earphone. They were judged one of the best pairs to buy for under $30.
A tote bag featuring Jon Waters’ words to live by
Any real bookworm will agree with these words of wisdom from director, author, and comedian Jon Waters. And what better place to print his famous quote than on a tote bag, in which your friend or family member can carry — you guessed it — books.
The bag is sold by The Strand, New York City’s most famous local bookstore, so your purchase will also support an independent bookseller.
An adjustable reading lamp
Buying an expensive floor lamp as a gift is a risky move, but an inexpensive adjustable desk lamp is pretty safe.
There are a range of models available, but the best ones should be able to adjust to any height or angle.
“Thing Explainer” by Randall Munroe
If you must buy a book, but don’t want to worry about the reader’s tastes, go for something out of left field.
Randall Munroe, creator of the xkcd web comic, uses only the 1,000 most common words to explain how stuff works in “Thing Explainer”. It’s funny, informative, and all around delightful.
Warm literary socks to curl up in
The ideal position to read a good book during the winter is curled up on the couch.
So help your bookworm cozy up with some insulating, book-themed socks. These are printed with dozens of banned book titles.
A framed writerly poster
Reading and writing go together like Santa’s milk and cookies, so there’s a solid chance your book lover will dig this print by Todd McLellan.
Though you might not be able to tell right away, the image depicts a typewriter. McLellan’s work centers around taking things apart and photographing them in eye-pleasing ways. His typewriter explosion is right up a book lover’s alley.
An adult coloring book
Words aren’t the only thing books are good for.
Adult coloring books were one of the hottest gifts last year, and this year is no different. They’re relaxing and (potentially) beautiful.
A book weight
Who needs hands to hold open a book?
If your book lover likes to eat while they read, or they simply prefer to keep their hands free, a book weight makes life easier.
A book-shaped tissue box
If your book lover is prone to getting weepy over sad novels, they’ll no doubt appreciate a tissue drawn from a book-shaped box.
The wooden box dispenses 180 tissues, or “pages,” from the stack of antique-style books.
The literary friend or family member on your list likely has too many books and not enough shelf space. Invisible shelves are a stylish solution.
They’re made of two thin metal sheets that form a right angle — one gets attached to the wall, while the other holds up the books. The shelves are guaranteed to start a conversation, so the lucky floating titles should be chosen carefully.
