34 Useful Gifts For People Who Read Lots And Lots Of Books

Treat yo' self, bibliophiles.

1. "Shhh! I'm reading" socks so everyone will know EXACTLY what the deal is when they snuggle up with their favorite book.

2. A comfy memory foam pillow to give their neck and back the reprieve they deserve while they read their fave from cover to cover from bed or the couch.

3. A mermaid bookmark so they can always dive right back into a story in the exact place that they left off.

4. An eight-shelf bookcase to present all their beloved books in total style. It'll hold a lot without taking up too much space.

5. A Book Lover's Journal to jot down books they want to read next, notes on what they're reading now, a list of titles they've borrowed and need to return, book club info, and even good recs for authors to check out. They're about to have the most organized reading life ever and this'll be a great journal to return to whenever they want to reflect on what they've read so far.

6. A book weight that'll hold them down (and the book, more literally) when they want to do some hands-free reading. The weight is waterproof and washable. Plus, they can use it for magazines, paperbacks, and hardback books.

7. Paper Mate Felt Tip Pens to make all the notes they take on their books look extra bright and pretty.

8. A bookstand that'll hold their book up for them and sit sturdily on any desk or table they set it on. Since they won't have to hunch over a book and look down at it, this stand will come in handy if they're like me and want to protect their neck and improve their posture while reading.

9. Sticky notes to help them mark their page if they don't trust themselves to keep up with a cutesy bookmark.

10. A waterproof Kindle because at some point they'll have to accept that there's way more space in their heart for new books than they have in their home.

11. A mug that'll validate their need to buy more books no matter how little shelf space they've got waiting at the crib. There's no such thing as too many books. Period. End of story. Literally. Ha!

12. A tiny library-inspired change purse that'll be perfect if they're a millennial dinosaur like me who ~actually~ remembers checking out physical books with these lil' cards in 'em. This thing won't take up much space in their pocket or bag but it'll take up a TON of space in their nostalgic heart because it's just way too friggin' cute.

13. A subscription to Book of the Month so they'll never really have to deal with the "Now what do I do?" feeling that comes with ending a really great book. Like, it's great to finally reach the conclusion of the story but still hurts your heart that the ride is over? Been there babe, but it's all over now because DING-DONG, that's their new set of reads waitin' on them at the door.

15. A digital bookmark that'll double as a countdown timer so they can stick to their allotted reading time. The timer will also be super-duper helpful for the students who have required daily reading time for school.

16. A fake-out dictionary stowaway book to hide easily between the library books they own. Hide your kids. Hide your wife. Hide your money. Hide whatever you want between these "pages." You can snag one with a combination or key lock.

18. Floating bookshelves to make those magical stories levitate the way they deserve. They'll save plenty of floor space by utilizing their walls. Plus, their books will double as decor. Two birds. One really awesome floating library wall!

27. Paperback book covers because yeah, softer books are more lightweight but their paper covers are always more susceptible to tearing and catching stains. These covers will protect the book without adding much weight.

Them with all their fabulous books and book-adjacent things:
