Perfect Gifts for Bookworms
Happy Holidays, friends! While I have created this list of the perfect gifts for bookworms with Christmas in mind, it can really apply to any and all gift-giving holidays (birthdays, pick-me-ups, anniversaries, etc.)!
Tech Gifts for Bookworms
Surprise! “Tech Gifts for Bookworms” is not actually an oxymoron. Ten years ago, it probably would have been. I’ll still always prefer the feel of an actual book in my hands, but there are some technological advances I have found to be quite convenient.
There are a few variations of Kindle now. I personally have the Kindle Paperwhite and really like it! There is also the Kindle Oasis (which is the most expensive). Additionally, Amazon has a Fire tablet that can work as a Kindle while also allowing you to surf the web, stream some shows, or even shop!
Personally, I see no reason to splurge for options without ads. I thought they would be obstructive, but they’re only ever there when you unlock the device.
This is a super nerdy idea, but it’s also a really good one! I time myself when I read because it’s been a goal of 2020 to read for 20,000 minutes. I just use the timer on my phone, but a timer bookmark is a great option! This could also be helpful for teaching or encouraging kids to read. The bookmark can count up or down.
If you have a bookworm friend who loves audiobooks, they probably need a nice set of wireless headphones. Depending on the recipient, they may enjoy earbuds more than headphones (or vice versa). I’m not personally a huge fan of audiobooks, but I am a huge fan of my Anker wireless earbuds.
Now, there are a TON of audiobook services out there, so you can always price shop or see if your recipient has an existing subscription somewhere. Some common options are:
- Libro.fm – This one helps support your favorite local bookstore. If you need one to support, try Fox Tale Book Shoppe in Woodstock, GA!

Cozy Gifts for Bookworms
There’s a reason “curl up with a good book” is a fairly common thing to say. Bookworms also love to be cozy! Now, “cozy” means something a little bit different to us all, but these are a few of my absolute favorites.
You cannot go wrong with a Sherpa blanket. I have one (I got at Costco a few years ago) and it is just the warmest thing.
Tea or Coffee
I do like the occasional cup of tea, but I definitely prefer my coffee. There’s nothing better than a bug mug of something warm.
- Yogi Tea Stress Relief & Herbal Tea
- Tea Forte Variety Sampler
- Simple Loose Leaf Tea – It’s a subscription box! That’s the gift that keeps on giving.
- Death Wish Coffee – I’m a big fan of Death Wish, but it’s usually a “treat yourself” kind of purchase.
- Kitu Super Coffee – It has vitamins and antioxidants!
Mugs are so universal now. Use them for the tea or coffee you got your bookworm, or you can make mug cakes/brownies, drink water, have some wine…mugs are good for anything.
Books for Bookworms
Now, if you want my top selections for the best books of all time, I’ve got you covered. However, there are some more recent or popular books that make great picks. (My tastes can be…unique sometimes.)
- Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens – I haven’t come across anyone who thought this wasn’t a fantastic book.
- The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
- Anxious People by Fredrik Backman – Honestly, I’ve heard that all of Fredrick Backman is good.
- Untamed by Glennon Doyle
- The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz & Janet Mills
