10 Gifts Ideas for the Book Lover

My Top 10 gift ideas for the book lover.  I know I would love to receive any of these gifts. Good rule of thumb…don’t give anything as a gift you wouldn’t want to receive yourself.  I personally never give “joke” gifts that are good for a short giggle, then get tossed or stuck in the back of the closet never to be used. I love books, but prefer gifts with a bit more subtlety in their style.  It helps if you know your recipient’s favorite authors. My personal favorites? Agatha Christie and Jane Austen.

  1. Library Pendant: A vintage library card becomes a pretty little necklace. $15.99 at Etsy shop JoyfulMoose

2. Scarf: At first glance you may not notice the notebook paper print, but for the lover of the written word, it might just be the subtle look they’ll love. Mens styles too. $49 at Etsy shop Cyberoptix
