Read All About It: Gift Ideas For Book Lovers

I was telling Andy over the weekend that I really needed to ‘just get lost in a book.’ And so I did. Every free minute that I had over the weekend, my nose was back in my book. It was an amazing vacation without ever leaving my house. That of course got me thinking about all things books and my fellow book lovers, so you guessed it, a gift list inspired by and especially for book lovers.

Check out these gifts for the bibliophile in your life (get it, it’s a library themed list…”check it out”  😉 )

10 Gift Ideas For Book Lovers

1. Personalized Library Embosser

Personalized Library Embosser

I have a few books sitting in my home office that were lovingly loaned to me by friends…I’m just not sure which friends. Whenever I figure out who they belong to, this would be a perfect gift for them – to guard against friends like me 🙂

It’s not a homing beacon, but it’s possibly the next best thing in ensuring their well-loved books are returned.

3. Library Scented Candle

The next best thing to sitting in a library – bringing the scent of the library to you. The smell of old pages, polished hardwood floors and leather bound books.
