Should you gift a book to a book lover?
While book lovers may love books (it’s in the name!), they aren’t always the best gift ideas for avid readers. That’s because books can be a pretty personal choice, and someone may have a very specific genre, author, or style that they like.
Unless you know your fave avid reader’s reading habits very well, or there’s a book they’ve been talking about buying, we suggest opting for book-related gifts that aren’t on the best-seller list.
But don’t stress — below we’ve rounded up all the best gifts for book lovers that aren’t actual books. From book accessories to book-inspired keepsakes, there’s something for every type of reader!
