Are you looking for a gift for the book lover in your life but you don’t want to buy a book in case they’ve already read it? Maybe you’re fed up of giving a voucher and want to buy something more exciting? Whether you’re looking for a quirky gift, a stocking filler, secret santa gift or something more expensive, there’s plenty of inspiration around for book lovers … if you have the time to search.
I’ve taken some of stress out of searching for you. From items you can wear to notebooks and pens, here’s what I’ve found to inspire you this season.
*Some of the links below are affiliate links which means that if you purchase something, the cost remains the same for you but Jera’s Jamboree receives a very small commission which goes towards future giveaways.*
Gathered together in one place, there’s plenty of inspiration on Etsy’s Book Club Christmas Gift Guide. With all the visuals it’s easy to scan as you scroll and you don’t have to read the text. Lots of unique and one-off items and there’s a range of prices. Personalised bookmarks, gorgeous fabric book covers, jewellery and scarves – so much choice! You’ll be supporting independent creatives too.
Looking for something eco-friendly? Emerald and Lime stationery is original and inspiring and supports the environment. Notebooks, writing paper and fiction prints are reasonably priced and you get the best customer service from owner Elle Turner.
For the history buff, look no further than English Heritage. Not only publishing fascinating and authoritative books for adults you’ll also find great history books for children of all ages. Scroll through the 25 pages and you might be surprised at the range available.
There was a mixed bag of responses in my stationery feature as to how people felt about personalised stationery. Bottom line, ensure your spellings are correct and you’re onto a winner. Think of a planner and you’ll find it at Paperchase – life planners, weekly planners, garden planners, food planners – as well as journals, notebooks, scrapbooks and address books to personalise. On the whole, book lovers seem to love stationery and personalising just adds that little bit extra.
I couldn’t leave off pens either 🙂 Paperchase have some awesome premium pens with top brands such as Parker, Cross, Kaweco and my favourite, Lamy. Roller balls, ball point, fountain pens and a luxury range … heaven!
You’ll find an awesome range of tote bags for book lovers at Foyles. Alice in Wonderland, Very Hungry Caterpillar, Pride and Prejudice, Penguin classics as well as landscapes and abstract designs. Harry Potter fans will love the range of goodies available too!
Does your recipient enjoy reading and relaxing while they’re in the bath? Treat your book lover to something different from the range of goodies available at Prezzybox. You’ll find the usual bath melts as well as Prosecco bathing gel, real ale bathing gel and toast and jam body wash.
Finally, is your book lover a tea drinker? Twinings Christmas Gift Bags could hit the spot. You’ll find popular teas as well as teas to experiment with. With 16 different gift bags of fabulous goodies to choose from there’s something to suit most tastes. Reasonable prices ranging from £10 to £16.
