Halloween is now officially over and Thanksgiving is almost here in the United States which can only mean one thing - we can now start thinking about the winter holidays! In particular, buying those special presents for our loved ones. If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for your friend or family member whose to-be-read pile seems to be getting taller and taller then look no further. I have concocted the perfect list of gifts that will knock their socks off!

Here are the 10 best gifts to buy the book lover in your life.

1. Fluffy Blanket

7. Old Book Scented Candle

This candle is aptly named Book Lovers’ Soy Candle so I don’t think there is a better one to purchase for that special book lover in your life! Especially coming into the colder months, candles make everything so much more cozy.

Chances are you know a book lover who is very particular about their books and keeping them safe. That’s where Book Beau comes in! They make beautiful sleeves perfect for holding and transporting your books.

10. Kindle Paperwhite

Obviously this is a more pricey purchase, but if the book lover in your life doesn’t have a Kindle then this would be THE BEST gift. It took me a while to get used to it as I love the feeling of a book in my hands, but with the amount of money it has saved me in the long run, I cannot complain. Also, this version is waterproof so perfect for reading in the bath (with your bath caddy of course).

US - $149.99 

UK - £119.99
