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
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.
Available from Horchow: Library Emobsser
2. Library Card Tote Bag
The perfect tote for…well, toting their library books around.
Available from UncommonGoods: Library Card Tote Bag
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.
Available from The British Library: Birch & Brook Library Scented Candle
4. Cat Bookends
I admit it, I’m a dog person, but these are purr-fect (yep, I went there) for any book lover’s shelves.

5. Coffee Mug
On the heels of my bacon lover gift list and the “I like pig butts’ t-shirt, I found this mug. I definitely have questionable humor, but this mug is still super clever 🙂

I’m crying over here, this shit cracks me up 🙂 Geek humor, is there anything better??
