Bookish gift ideas for Christmas

Winter nights are perfect for curling up with a good book and a hot chocolate! Aside from, of course, one of our own brilliant book subscriptions, what other great gifts can you find this Christmas for bookworms, young and old? Here are a few ideas:

Book Lights: Overnight travel call or bedtime reading often call for a personal reading light to illuminate the pages. Most clip on book lights are rechargeable and can be used for up to 45 hours at a time. 

A Kindle Case: If the bookworm in your family uses a Kindle, why not get them something to protect it in style? Small businesses on Etsy offer tons of decorative Kindle cases that look good and keep the device from getting damaged.

The Book Seat: Meet the travel pillow designed for avid readers on the move. By day, it’s a convenient book stand with an adjustable page holder to keep your place. By night (or nap time) it can be use as a pillow! 

Book Plates or Stamps: Everyone loves to stamp ownership into a favourite book, and there is a huge a range of beautiful "this book belongs to" stamps or book plates available, including personalised ones. A great stocking filler!

A Book Journal: Serious bibliophiles will be delighted to receive a beautiful notebook to use as a book journal, for their book reviews, notes, quotes, and TBR lists. 

Personalised bookmarks: You can never have too many! Websites like Etsy and Not On The High Street feature many small businesses who can create a wide range of personalised bookmarks in different styles.

Reading socks: Cold feet can be a distraction from even the best of books, so the gift of a pair of slipper socks with a cozy plush lining along with a new book will make any bookworm happy!
