15 Gift Ideas for Book Lovers that Compliment Their Book Collection Perfectly


Welcome to the first Holiday Gift Guide of the 2017 shopping season! Today I’m focusing on gift ideas for book lovers because let me tell you, I found some really fun gift ideas that I can’t wait to share.

I don’t know about you, but there are a lot of book lovers on my gift list every year. Our entire family of five are big-time readers and one of our most popular hangout spots is the bookstore. Every time we’re there, we find a new book or book lovers gadget we want to purchase.

I hope you find some great ideas for the book lovers on your list!

Gift Ideas for Book Lovers

Reading Glasses and/or Reading Sunglasses from Readers.com


I’ve officially reached the point in my life where I need reading glasses all.the.time. The selection of frames from Readers.com is spectacular (see what I did there). I received a nice little bundle of reading glasses and reading sunglasses from Readers.com to test out and they did not disappoint. I’m wearing a pair as I type this up. 😉

They are very stylish and have something for every face shape. Are you curious what glasses type are best for your (or the person you’re buying for) face shape? Here you go:

  • Square: round, aviator, oval, cat eye
  • Heart: rectangle, retro-square, cat eye
  • Oval: rectangle, retro-square, round
  • Round: rectangle, retro-square, browline

Now you can purchase just the right style for that special book lover on your list.
