Why not go the extra mile for the reader in your life and stuff their stocking with bookish goodies?! Purchase something special or do it yourself, it’s the little things that show you care. Check your Winter Issue (or subscribe if you haven’t already, what are you waiting for?!) for even more great gifting ideas!
Bookmarks are a reader’s best friend (conversion is possible for those who dog ear pages *cringe*). Grab some card stock and make your own or get the kids involved. Want a beautiful bookmark that will last? I love this one (and all the bookish things) from Create Explore Read!
Roll up some bookish apparel like socks, scarves, fingerless gloves, tees, tanks, and more from Out of Print. Equip your reader with book themed: candles from Novelly Yours, teas from FirstEditionTeaCo, book or ereader sleeves from TheCozyLifeShop, mugs, totes, smartphone cases, you name it!
Mass-market paperbacks from Love Inspired and Harlequin Heartwarming are a delightful treat while mini-devotionals keep your reader in the Christmas spirit! Pick up little page flag posties and highlighters for readers who leave their mark. Visit the Modern Mrs. Darcy shop for an expert opinion on supplies for the reader life.
Still not sure what to do? You can’t go wrong with a gift card from Barnes & Noble or your reader’s favorite local bookstore. The book gear possibilities are endless on Etsy and they have gift cards, too! Here are more top Etsy shops: SweetPages, TheCleverCove, SweetSequels, TheEnchantedBookshop, NookandBurrow, BeedoTO, Webmoss, sewfeathers.
If you’re in a last-minute pinch and want to make a lasting impression, whip that cardstock out again and create custom coupons… Uninterrupted Reading Time, Trip to the Bookstore, Visit a Story Setting Road Trip, Bookish Movie Night, Library Day, Reading Retreat, etc.
