2018 Book Lovers Gift List

Christmas is right around the corner! Are you all done with shopping yet?

Of course, books always make the best gifts because there is a book for everyone. I plan to do a Best of 2018 post soon, but 2018 isn’t over yet and I’ve got plenty to read still!

I LOVE bookish goodies, so I’ve compiled a few of my favorites, in case you still need something for the book lovers in your life.

3. A Book of the Month SubscriptionScreen Shot 2018-12-08 at 2.53.01 PM

Have you heard of the Book of the Month Club? I’ve been a member for about a year, and they’ve been around so long that my mom was even a member when she was my age!

You can’t choose your family—but they can choose their books. Give them the gift that lets them pick from the best new books every month. BOTM searches through hundreds of new releases to find the five best books coming out every month. And they’re usually really good! Give 3 Months or 6 Months or a full year of books! Get a hardcover every month (new releases and early release!) or get two or three or all five! You can also add on extra books from past months!

5. Lit Chat Conversation Starterslitchat

A fun game for bookclub perhaps?

Each of the 50 cards in this conversation deck is printed with two reading-themed questions (100 questions total). Some invoke books that are tied to memories (name your favorite childhood picture book); others prompt you to choose ideal reading material for a hypothetical situation (if you were stranded on a desert island, what book would you want with you?). Some of them aim to get people comparing their favorite (and not-so-favorite) characters or authors, and others engage in popular debates amongst readers (name a movie adaptation you liked and defend your choice). Created to give readers of all persuasions an excuse to talk about books, ideas, and life itself, this deck is a great addition to any booklover’s shelf.

6. Magnetic Bookmarks

These are my most favorite types of bookmarks. My dog is constantly knocking my books off tables, the couch, anywhere.. and these don’t fall out, they’re really small, and come in all sorts of cute shapes and size and designs. The magnetic closure allows bookmarks to “snap” into place. hands down my most used bookmarks!

My favorite ones are here at Amazon.

7. A Little Free Library!Screen Shot 2018-12-08 at 3.22.33 PM

If you follow my Instagram, you know I’m on a trek to find and love and photograph as many of these as I can. I just love the idea behind them so, so much and you can read about them here and you can get one of your own!
