Gifts for the Book Lover on Your Holiday List

Posted November 26, 2022 by Carole in Random Thoughts / 7 Comments

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Do you have any bookworms on your list? I thought it would be fun to share a few ideas that I think would be a great gift for any book lover. Credit Bundles

This would be my pick for anyone who enjoys audiobooks! Each purchase helps support a local bookstore of your choice. The credits never expire and all of their audiobooks are DRM-free which is a huge plus. They have a fantastic selection of books and I think their app is one of the best that I have used for audiobook playback.

From now until November 28, 2022 – These credit bundles are 10% off! And you get to select one of 8 audiobooks for yourself as a bonus!

Book of the Month Gift Subscription

This is a fantastic gift for that book lover that enjoys having print books on their shelves! I have subscribed to BOTM for a long time and there are a lot of things that I love about their service. I enjoy getting the opportunity to purchase hardcover books at a discount and the shipping is always free! If you don’t like the books on offer, you can easily skip as many months as you want. Once you have purchased 12 boxes, there are some additional benefits including a free tote bag, a free add-on book during your birthday month, and the opportunity to add one of the books nominated for Book of the Year to your box at no cost.

They offer gift subscriptions in 3, 6, and 12 month plans.

Reading Planner

As much as I like keeping track of things on Goodreads and spreadsheets, using a written reading planner has been a game-changer for me. There is just something incredibly satisfying about crossing something off my tbr list in my planner! Since I have been using a written planner, I have been able to stick to a plan and have started to catch up with my backlist and a few series that I have had on my tbr for a very long time. There are so many different planners available that you should be able to find the perfect one for the bookworm on your shopping list!

This is my pick for a reading planner – I use a few of the sheets in the book a little differently than intended but it has been a great solution for me. I have my 2023 planner ready to go!

A Gift Certificate to a Local Bookstore

You really can’t go wrong with a gift certificate. Most bookstores offer gift certificates in a variety of amounts so you can pick what works best for your budget. Not only does the recipient get to apply the amount of the gift certificate to their purchase. They get a great excuse to spend an afternoon or evening browsing the shelves of their favorite bookstore. Plus, gift certificates or gift cards for local stores help support local businesses.

  1. These are such great ideas here! Also, the KU subscription is great too, because if they don’t want KU then you can switch it to book credits if you wanted to instead.

  2. This is a very thorough list! My family pretty much stalks my Amazon wishlist for titles that I’ve added haha. One of the best bookish gifts I ever got was a custom book press to mark each of the books on my shelves!

  3. I keep thinking I need a good book light. Most of the time I read on my Kindle at night but sometimes I want to keep reading an actual book but don’t want to turn the light on. Great list!
