Tips on What to Gift A Person Who Loves Books
If you’re wondering on what do you buy for a book nerd or “how can I impress my book lover?” consider these tips before picking out the perfect bookish gift for him or her.
Know their favourite books, authors and genres.
If you’re familiar with the genres they read or bookish fandoms they belong to, it will be easy to pick out a specific merch or book they’ve been wanting to get their hands on.
This is sure to impress your book loving sweetheart!
Know what’s on their bookish wish list.
Some readers have a wishlist on Amazon or they create a wishlist/to-be-read list on Goodreads. If you have access to these lists, you can buy them books they want to read.
Know what are their reading goals.
If you know why they read or what their reading goals are, it’ll be a good idea to buy them practical bookish gifts inline with their goals.
For example, if they’re a booktoker or booktuber, maybe they need some ringlights, a new phone or other tech.
If they want to read more books, consider an audiobook subscription or kindle unlimited (kindles make the perfect gift for book lovers as they’re not only convenient but trending right now in the bookish community, especially booktok)
25 Valentine’s Day Gifts For Book Lovers
1. In Love & Pajamas by Catana Comics
In Love & Pajamas by Catana Comics is said to highlight the “way too comfortable with each other” moments in a relationship. The author mentioned in her introduction note that this book is for those who share vulnerability and are truly themselves with their partner.
I have read this book and recommend it as a super cute and thoughtful gift for someone you’re unapologetically comfortable with.

This cozy candle has nodes of coffee, cream and sweet vanilla.
