1. Book of the Month, a service that presents them with five awesome reads each month! They'll get the option to pick one of them (or more if they'd like!), then they read, review, and repeat!

3. A world literature map that'll make the perfect addition to the walls of any avid reader's living space. It's way more fun to view the world in terms of classic literature.
4. A Cat In The Hat ornament I'd like to think is currently reading a book containing every Dr. Seuss story every created. Chances are, if they're someone who loves reading, Dr. Seuss had something to do with that in their childhood years.
5. A book soap bar that'll look awesome on display next to their sink. This is gonna make them wonder how they ever washed their hands with anything else.
6. Reading glasses attached to a comfy black cord, so when it's time to sit down and pick up their book, their glasses are right there, ready for use. When they're not wearing the glasses, they fold up nice and easy. We're just here to help you help them make their lives easier.
7. A book lover's journal that comes with 24 double-sided cards for tracking the books they read, a bookmark to help them keep their place in their favorite stories, and a borrowed book log so they never lose sight of their books when loved ones are borrowing them.
8. A blind date with a book so they can go on the best blind ever, all without changing out of pajamas — this cool concept sends them a beautifully packaged surprise book. Their only job is to open it and read it!
9. Personalized wooden bookends perfect for people of all ages who own books. Now they can easily store their favorite reads in one convenient spot in an adorably pretty way.
10. A personalized miniature book necklace so you can get their favorite book turned into a piece of jewelry they'll cherish forever.
11. Temporary literary tattoos so they can rock quotes from classic literature books on their skin, and wash it off when they've had enough.
12. A book light that'll serve as a wonderful companion for late night reading. It's bright enough to make words readable, but not too bright that it'll keep someone else in the room awake.
13. A book journal so they can log all of the many wonderful books they read. It's basically like Goodreads, minus the app and smartphone.
14. A 100 top reads of all time scratch-off poster that'll make for a fun reading challenge as they scratch their way to reading all 100 books.
15. A candle that'll help set the reading mood. It'll make any room they curl up in to read feel as if they're at their cozy local bookstore.

18. A Kate Spade New York tote bag to carry their most precious belongings. Most importantly, their books.
19. An iron-on patch they'll absolutely adore putting on a denim jacket or jeans, a tote bag, or wherever else they see fit. Books are, in fact, magic, and now they can wear this very true sentiment whenever they want.
20. A super cute bookmark so reaching for a random piece of paper, a receipt, a writing utensil, or whatever else it is they use to save their spot in a book, becomes a thing of the past. Plus, it's punny!!
21. A DIY Diagon Alley bookshelf so your favorite Harry Potter fan has an awesome new spot to store the books. Now, all they need is a fresh glass of butter beer, and they're ready to delve into the series for the millionth time.
22. A tee for the person who is usually too busy reading a book to join the friend group Zoom party. Can you blame them?
23. A comic book kit they can color in and create their very own comics. Congratulations, you now have a loved one who is a professional comic book author/illustrator!
24. A personalized library card pillow that can be customized with their family member's information for a lovely library-themed decor item.
26. A pair of cat bookends, aka the most purr-fect way for them to store and organize their book collection.
27. And because there is no pairing quite like books and cats (at least IMO), this pin set will make for the cutest gift they've ever received. CATS JUST CHILLING ON TOP OF BOOKS! Need I say more?
28. A pack of tea bags with literary quotes from all over the world for the best drink to accompany their reading sesh.
