There's nothing wrong with giving the booklover in your gift cards. NOTHING. But if you're looking for something a little more creative, here's some super fun stuff you might want to keep in mind (or that you might want to buy for yourself. I don't judge. You do you.) :
Flippy multi-angle soft pillow lap stand
This combination storage cubby/lap stand is perfect for reading or working in bed, on the couch, or wherever you want. This thing is all about comfort, and it comes in about a bazillion colors, so no worries about finding something that'll go with your decor. I ADORE mine!
Fuck This Shit Show: A Gratitude Journal for Tired-Ass Women (Cuss Words Make Me Happy)
This one won't appeal to everyone obviously, but it tickled the crap out of me. Perfect for the tired-ass woman in your life (or for yourself, of course), this daily gratitude journal includes prompts like Asshole of the Day, Today I'm Proud I Didn't, I'm Happy I Did, and many more. Seems like something we should all have after the shit show 2020 turned out to be, amirite?
Booklovers wine tumbler
This 12 oz, stainless steel wine tumbler is spill resistant and has a portable lid so you can take it with you anywhere (which could REALLY come in handy at family events in the future). It's double wall vacuum insulation ensures that your drink will stay cold (or hot) for up to 9 hours.
Super fancy, natural wood bookmarks
I think these pretty much speak for themselves. Perfect for the super fancy, extra fabulous reader in your life. You know, the kind of reader who is too good to use an old receipt or gum wrapper for a bookmark. (Not that I've ever done that or anything...ahem...)
Dr. Seuss-esque reading T-shirt
Using the style of Green Eggs and Ham, this fun reader's T-shirt comes in a few different colors, and in men's and women's cuts.
Chunky knit throw blanket
What's better than curling up with a great book? Glad you asked. Curling up under THIS blanket with a great book is the BEST. 50x60 and made of velvet-y soft Chenille, this throw is big enough for use in bed, on the couch, or in a lounge chair. Can't recommend highly enough!
Kindle Unlimited subscription
Did you know you can gift a Kindle Unlimited subscription to someone? Well...now you do. You can gift the booklover in your life access to up to 10 free reads at any given time. And, there are over 1 million titles in Kindle Unlimited. That's a lot of hours of potential reading enjoyment!
Sony noise-cancelling headphones
Because you need quiet when you're reading, amirite? These are the industry leading noise cancelling headphones for a reason. Mine were worth every penny, and they are actually cheaper now than when I originally bought them. This is a limited time deal, so if you want these for $248 instead of $349, now's the time to buy.
Toni Morrison quote tote bag ("You are your own stories")
1-clicked the crap out of this one!
"I still love to read fairy tales, they're just dirtier now" T-shirt
Ain't it the truth?
Come on...you knew an e-reader would be on the list, right? I've personally tested every model of Kindle ever produced, and to me, nothing beats the Paperwhite. It's BY FAR the easiest on my eyes, the battery lasts a good long time, and it stores more books than I could read in 2 lifetimes. That's pretty much all I need from a reader. Sure, you can get a fancier reader...but why? This one is just under $100 right now, too. Just sayin'.
Comfy, warm reading socks
Because you NEED warm, comfy socks for when you're curled up under your chunky knit blanket, browsing the Kindle Unlimited selections on your new Paperwhite! Seriously though, I'm a HUGE fan of Muk Luks. I bought these and I'm thrilled with them (the sloth ones are EXTRA cute).
