Gifts for Book Lovers, Writers, & Editors: Part 7

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.”
Amazon, $6.71


If you haven’t tried BananaGrams yet, and you love word games, check it out! It’s a lot of fun.
Amazon, $13.50

Stack of Books Book lover Necklace

This looks beautiful to me.
Etsy, $25

Book Lover’s Calendar for 2012

Amazon, $12.99

Mary Engelbreit’s Book Lover Bulletin Board Display Set

Amazon, $9.41
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.

Library Cushion

Literary Gift Company, 14.95 pounds, about $23.96 US. A bit expensive, but will appeal to some book lovers.

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

Big Boogle

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!
Amazon, $13.75

Book Lover Bottle Cap Magnets

Etsy, $6.95

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!
Etsy, $20.

Stacked Book Bench Table

Amazon, $80

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.
Etsy, $12.95

Knock Knock Personal Library Kit

Amazon, $19.80

Read Necklace

Etsy, $12.00

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!

Amazon, $22-27

Lined Paper Wallet

This wallet may appeal to some writers. It does to me. 🙂
Amazon, $15.00

And then of course there are these wonderful book-themed picture books that I highly recommend for anyone, young or old, and especially book lovers, writers, librarians, and editors:

It’s a Book by Lane Smith
Amazon, $7.64

The Incredible Book-Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers
Amazon, $12.23

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
Amazon, $8.99

Playing By the Book also found some lovely Roald Dahl gifts including a pop-out Charlie and the Chocolate Factory factory.

    Oh my goodness!! What wonderful, wonderful suggestions… I tend to stay away from Etsy for the benefit of our budget but I just might have to visit- the Read necklace is calling my name! Your posts will be so wonderful to share with the participants in my Books as Gifts class- thank you, thank you, thank you!
