gifts for book lovers


It would be laughably offensive to get the bookworm in your life an actual book. The person follows new lit drops like it’s their daily horoscope, so finding a novel they haven’t clocked is a pointless endeavor. Sidestep the process with giftable loopholes that offer them the same comfort as their favorite author. Because have you ever met a book lover who didn’t also love candles? I think not. Ahead, 35 non-cheesy gifts for the readers in your life (and not a Harry Potter knick knack in sight). If you’re feeling extra generous, don’t forget to throw in a gift card to their local bookshop, too.
