10 Things to Consider When Buying a Gift for Book Lovers

Searching for the perfect gift for the book lover in your life? Be sure to keep these 10 things in mind!

1. Display their books

Book lovers always have a large collection of books (obviously!) Why not consider getting them something that helps them display their collection? A unique looking bookshelf or new table for displaying larger books is a great idea for those who need the storage and also want to look at their collection.

2. Upgrade existing copies

Does this book lover have a favorite series? Why not consider getting them a nice hardback edition of the set? Just make sure they don’t already own it!

3. Think outside the (book) box

Often times, what a book lover doesn’t need is more books. Instead, try to think of something unique to get them. For example, say a nice bottle of wine that they can enjoy while reading a new book, or a nice journal that they can use to start writing their own book.

4. Go digital

While some book lovers are strictly purists and are not open to the idea of a digital library, many modern readers are. Consider purchasing your book lover friend a reading device or purchasing them a subscription service where they can check out books to read.

5. Get artsy

If you know of their favorite book or author, consider getting a piece of art that shows off the book. This might be a framed cover of the book, or even a framed quote taken from a book.

6. Improve their experience

For readers, enjoying a good book involves much more than just reading. Consider how to make the entire reading process more enjoyable- a nice reading chair, soft blanket, or cool reading lamp can make the experience much more enjoyable.

7. Know their interests

The biggest mistake you can make when buying something for a book lover is to assume that they love all types of books. Many people have certain preferences, and the last thing you want to do is purchase a book on a topic the recipient has zero interest in.

8. No repeats

Another big mistake? Buying someone the same book or same series twice. Be sure to take some time to think about a book the person would like to receive, don’t just pick up the first thing you see on display at the store.

9. Think personalized

Everyone loves a good personalized gift, and this is also true for book lovers. A great example of this? A personalized stamp that they can use on each new book they get. This is a gift that is just as cool as it is useful.

10. Reach out to authors

If possible, consider reaching out to the person’s favorite author and asking them to sign a copy of a book. You likely won’t have luck with big name authors, but smaller authors, and especially local authors, will likely love to hear from you and help provide you with the perfect gift.

The Ultimate Gift Ideas for Book Lovers

We all know a book lover, maybe you are one yourself. For these people, nothing beats staying in and cozying up with a good book. When their birthday rolls around, or the holidays, it can feel impossible to know what to get them. Of course the one thing that comes to mind is- more books! But beyond that, it can be quite the challenge to get a book lover the perfect gift.

If you are thinking of buying your book lover friend or family member a book, we have just one question for you: How do you know they haven’t already read the book?

People tend to have a very specific taste in books, and it can be hard to decide what a person will like. And, especially with book lovers, there’s a good chance they will have already read whatever you get them! That is why it is a good idea to go in a different direction when buying a gift for them.

Readers have a lot of other passions as well, believe it or not. If you don’t want to go the typical book route this time around, consider what else this person enjoys. Many readers also enjoy writing, which opens up numerous other options for gifts. We’ve already thought through this and our book lovers gift list comprises related interests as well.
