5 Great Gifts Ideas for Book Lovers 

Do you have a book lover in your life? Finding the best gifts for book lovers can be more unique than just picking out a book and giving it to them. Because let’s be honest if the gift recipient is a true book reader, who’s to say that they haven’t already read the book you plan on giving them? This is why you can’t go wrong with gifts for book lovers that aren’t books. 

A great place to start would be with a book lover gift box. This could include fun items that readers can use while enjoying a good book.

  • An e-reader – such as a Kindle or Nook can be a wonderful gift for a book lover who wants to carry their entire library with them wherever they go. Moreover, e-readers are environmentally friendly.
