Though readers love to receive books, it can sometimes feel uninspired to give them a novel for the sixteenth gift giving occasion in a row. In that case, it can be nice to look into other bookish gifts. I’ve listed a few fun ones below.

Book pins – These pins by Jane Mount are perfect for sticking in a stocking. (And she has dozens of titles to choose from including To Kill a Mockingbird, Pride and Prejudice, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.)
Scratch-Off Book Chart – For people who plan to make a new year’s resolution about reading more books, Pop Chart Lab’s scratch-off book chart is a great gift that will allow them to keep track of how many of the 100 Essential Novels they’ve read.
Library Card Prints – Or perhaps you have a friend who loves libraries in which case Rachel Hershfield’s library card art prints will fit the bill.
Literary Tea – Maybe a hot liquid would be more to your gift receiver’s taste. You can give him or her one of First Edition Tea Co.’s literary teas.
Banned Book Tote – For the reader who has strong feelings about censorship, this banned book tote is a great way to show support of literature like Of Mice and Men, The Heart of Darkness, and James and the Giant Peach. (If you are interested, you can also read up on the history of banned books. There is
some fascinating info out there!)

There are a tons of bookish presents in the world. I hope you enjoy exploring them! (And really, who am I kidding? Giving books to book lovers is always fine. Maybe just give them an extra bookshelf as well.)
