13 Great Gifts For The Bookworm In Your Life

13 Great Gifts For The Bookworm In Your Life

What do you get someone who already owns almost every book?


Finding the perfect present can be tricky, but you can never go wrong with getting something related to that person's hobbies. If your friend, family member or significant other owns more books than one bookshelf can hold, never goes anywhere without a good book and can easily quote lines from their favorite stories, then one or more of these items may be for them!

1. Bookstore gift card

When you have a "To Read" list that's a mile long, you need some help funding it.

2. Literary scarf

Places like Storiarts and Litographs print the text from classic novels like "Pride and Prejudice" and "The Great Gatsby" on fashionable scarves that'll satisfy a love for literature and the need for warmth!

3. "Reading Night" gift basket

Throw together a couple new books, their favorite snacks, a scented candle and a bottle of wine (or tea bags for the underage crowd) so your loved one can indulge in a relaxing reading night.

4. Coffee mug (especially if it has a good quote on it)

A good book should always be accompanied by a warm beverage.

5. New bookshelf

When you read a lot of books, you need a lot of space to store them. One bookshelf is not enough.

6. Cool bookends

Bookends pair great with a new bookshelf, or they can be gifted on their own! Bookends are practical and allow you to combine an interest in reading with another thing your special someone enjoys, like "Star Wars" or animals.

7. Anything related to their favorite book(s)

Necklace, t-shirt, bag, pajamas, watch, poster, Christmas tree ornament, you name it – if it's related to their favorite book, they'll like it.

8. Reading light

A portable clip-on reading light might be good for the person who's always on the go. If your loved one usually stays at home and reads, maybe look into a cool decorative lamp to brighten and liven up their reading space.

9. Anything signed by their favorite author

Even if it's a signed copy of a book they already own, having the author's autograph is a game-changer.

10. Noise-cancelling headphones

Ambient noise can be really distracting and annoying when you're getting to the climax of a novel.

11. Subscription to a book box service

Here's a present you won't have to put together yourself! Book subscription services like OwlCrate, Book Bath Box and The Book Drop will send your loved one a package full of literary goodies.

12. A bag/purse large enough to hold a book (or two...or three)

An avid reader literally can't put some books down, and you need to make sure they're always prepared with the book close at hand in case a few spare moments pop up.

13. Literary laptop stickers

Allow your bookworm to express their bookishness on their favorite devices.

Finding a present doesn't have to be as difficult as writing the next great American novel. Let these 13 ideas guide you to something the voracious reader in your life will truly enjoy!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
