Today I am linking up to Top Ten Tuesday for the prompt “Holiday Gift Guide”, a topic I was already planning on writing about!

Ten Gifts for Bookworms

That Aren’t Books!

I love books. I love receiving books as gifts. Equally nice, I love receiving book-themed gifts that aren’t actually books! Which is why I have put together my go-to list of bookish-themed gifts for that adorable bookworm in your life – which is most likely, YOU!!

Literary Candles by NovellyYours

Who doesn’t want a Lemon Tart Candle to go along with Marissa Meyer’s latest release? Or revel in the scent of the Scottish highlands while reading Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series with the Craigh Na Dun candle?

In addition to these two, there are many great other literary candle scents from NovellyYours:

  • Anna’s Favorite Cookies (Anna and the French Kiss) – Chocolate, Mint
  • The Lunar Chronicles Collection – Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter
  • The Raven Cycle Collection – Cabeswater, Henrietta, Manibus, Gansey
  • The Candle of the Month – Fantasy Beasts (Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them)

Magnetic Bookmarks from HappyHelloCo

They are so adorable and there are so many to choose from! One of my favorites from HappyHelloCo is the Land of Tales bookmarks, which looks like the characters from the Lunar Chronicles! The ones inspired by A Darker Shade of Magic are great, too!

Literary-themed Coloring Books

There are an amazing number of literary-themed coloring books out there. Alice in Wonderland, Shakespeare, A Christmas Carol, Outlander…and the three pictured above!

I love to curl up with a cup of tea when I am reading in the winter. The First Edition Tea Co. has an amazing selection of classics-inspired teas. If you can’t decide which one to try, you can buy a set that features them all! the Literary Tea Collection includes 5 blends inspired by:

  • Alice in Wonderland – Almond & Marzipan Rooibos Black Tea
  • Sherlock Holmes – Smoked English Breakfast Tea
  • The Great Gatsby – Lemon and Lavender Green Tea
  • Jane Eyre – Currant & Spice Black Tea
  • Pride and Prejudice – Citrus and Roasted Mate Herbal Tea

Bookish Mugs

Add a literary mug to go with the above tea collection for the perfect gift for your bookish friends! My favorites right now are designs by Evie Seo @ Society 6. Pictured above are mugs based on A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab and Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures


Funko Pop! mainly focuses on movies, TV, and comic book characters in pop culture, but there is often overlap with the book world! My favorite bookish Pop! right now are the various Harry Potter series figurines, Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time…and the soon to be released Gilmore Girls!

Everyone needs a pillow or two to make their reading experiences more comfortable and cozy! Here is another pick from Evie @ Society 6. I adore the Between the Pages pillow, as well as the Mr. Darcy pillows.

Who doesn’t want a little bit of Virginia Woolf, Jane Eyre, Dracula, Shakespeare, or Oscar Wilde gracing their walls? These bookish pieces of art by Bookishly UK are the perfect gift for the classically-minded reader.

Literary Scarves


Uncommon Goods has so many fun gift ideas, and we have bought quite a few things from there over the years. My current favorite is the literary scarves by Tori Tissell. You can choose from Jane Eyre, Alice in Wonderland, Pride and Prejudice, and Wuthering Heights.
