I get it.

Shopping for the perfect gift can be a daunting task. Did you get the right gift? What if the recipient already bought the same thing for themselves? What if they don’t like it? What if they do?

It’s especially hard when it comes to people who love books and can’t stop on-clicking on Amazon. What do you get them–besides an Amazon gift card?

Well, I went shopping for you. Below is a list of five affordable and creative possibilities. Maybe one of them will work perfectly!

  1. A reusable shopping tote: Going eco-friendly is all the rage, and I’m loving this reusable tote. It shows off a love of books, and al love of the environment! What could be more thoughtful than that?

2. A handmade book scarf: Every avid reader needs a good, classic scarf, and I adore this one. It’s fashionable and unique!

3. A bunk buddy shelf: I don’t know how many times I’ve fallen asleep with a book in my hand, only to have it (or my kindle) crash into my face or onto the floor. Why not solve the problem with this little gift?

4. A pair of dramatic book ends: All the bibliophiles I know absolutely LOVE to display their signed paperbacks on beautiful shelves in their home. Why not step up the shelf game with a pair of these?

5. A book embosser: Help your favorite reader create a special library all their own with this creative embosser. They’ll never think of it, but they’ll love that you did.

Happy shopping, and happy holidays!
