I love finding book- and writing-related gifts for book lovers, writers, editors, and librarians. It’s such fun! And I enjoy them myself. I hope you’ll find some of these items appealing for the book lover in your life.
Of course, one of my favorite gifts to receive (or give) is a bookstore gift card. And it’s super easy to buy gift cards online, especially if your book lover has a Kindle Amazon Gift Cards or a Nook (B&N Gift Card).
But there’s so much else that is appealing for book lovers! Check out these finds:
Rory’s Story Cubes
This looks like a fun writing game to play, as well as a possible tool for writers who are stuck. “Rory’s Story Cubes is a pocket-sized creative story generator, providing hours of imaginative play for all ages.”
If you haven’t tried BananaGrams yet, and you love word games, check it out! It’s a lot of fun.
Stack of Books Book lover Necklace
This looks beautiful to me.
Book Lover’s Calendar for 2012
Mary Engelbreit’s Book Lover Bulletin Board Display Set
These are supposed to be for teachers, but I personally love the middle image (A Book Is a Present You Can Open Again and Again) so much that I’d buy this set for myself.
Literary Rubber Duck
I think this little book loving rubber duckie is so cute I had to include it. It would be a nice gift for a child that loves books.
Literary Gift Company, 3.95 pounds, about $6.33 US
I absolutely love Boggle–it’s one of my favorite words games; maybe THE favorite. So I’m excited to see that there’s now Big Boggle, with 5 x 5 cubes rather than 4 x 4. More words, longer words, more fun!
Autumn Leaf-It Sticky Notes
These are absolutely beautiful bookmarks, or ways to mark passages or pages you love.
Literary Gift Company, 4.95 pounds, about $7.93 US
Kindle Case Made from a real book
I think this is both really neat (aesthetically pleasing and a neat book-lover tie-in) and also almost ironic–a physical book housing a bunch of electronic ones). I love it!
Stacked Book Bench Table
Virginia Woolf typewriter pin
Probably more for writers and editors than book lovers, I love this Virginia Woolf typewriter pin. Books Are the Mirrors of the Soul
Literary Gift Company, 4.00 pounds, about $6.41 US
The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe Mini Book
This mini book has the complete poem. I think mini books are very cute.
Knock Knock Personal Library Kit
Origami Sticky Notes
Suck UK, 2.00 pounds
Careful, Or You’ll End Up In My Novel t-shirt
More for writers, but so fun!
Lined Paper Wallet
This wallet may appeal to some writers. It does to me.
It’s a Book by Lane Smith
The Incredible Book-Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers
Library Lion by Michelle Knudson, Illustrated by Kevin Hawkes
The Incredible Book Eating Boy, Library Lion, It’s a Book (highly recommend them all for anyone, and especially book lovers, writers, librarians)
Amazon, paperback, $6.99
We Are in a Book! (An Elephant and Piggie Book) by Mo Willems
Playing By the Book also found some lovely Roald Dahl gifts including a pop-out Charlie and the Chocolate Factory factory.
