15 Stocking Stuffers That The Bookworm In Your Life Will Absolutely Nerd Out Over

Christmas shopping can be hectic. But if you exchange gifts with a bookworm, you know that readers are easy to shop for.

When it comes to finding stocking stuffers, things can be a bit more complicated. After all, it's not easy finding exciting gifts that can fit in a tiny stocking — especially when the person being gifted typically prefers 800-page tomes as presents. Try fitting one of those into a stocking.

If you're looking for stocking stuffers for your bookworm friends or relatives, we've got you covered. These 15 suggestions are all tiny, and all of them will make the book lover in your life nerd out on Christmas morning.

Bookmarks

Most book lovers don't like folding their precious pages over, so bookmarks are a necessity for keeping track of where they are in their stories.

Unfortunately, bookmarks are incredibly easy to misplace. And that means they're always in search of new ones. So, why not throw one or two in their stockings?

A book light

Book lights may seem obsolete in the age of e-readers, but some people still read physical copies of books on long car rides or during blackouts. And those readers will greatly appreciate having a small light to use while reading in the dark!

Candles

There's nothing better than lighting a delicious-smelling candle and curling up with a good book. You can go for more traditional scents, or you can even find bookish candles from their favorite stories.

Tea or coffee

How do you think bookworms get so much reading done? Caffeine is key, and readers are always on the hunt for more fuel. Small packs of tea and coffee will keep them energized, and thus able to read more books.

Mugs

Speaking of caffeine, bookworms need something to drink their coffee and tea out of. You'll be surprised at how many book-related mugs exist in the world, and you can probably squeeze them into a stocking!

Sticky tabs

Sticky tabs are the perfect solution for readers who like to mark pages but don't like folding them over or writing on them. But packs of sticky tabs are easy to go through, so you'll be doing bookworms a favor by giving them more.

A notebook

Some readers prefer taking actual notes to marking passages with sticky tabs. For that endeavor, a notebook is always useful. And besides, you know that plenty of readers also aspire to be writers.

If that sounds like your loved one, then get them a new notebook. It'll be much appreciated.

An e-reader case

If your bookish loved one enjoys e-books, you can always buy them a new e-reader case. Those things wear quickly, especially when they're constantly going from place to place.

Headphones

When it comes to format, some readers like audiobooks the best. They're efficient and accessible almost anywhere.

If the reader in your life is an audiobook person, they might be in need of a new pair of headphones. And if they're not, they probably like music — so you know they'll eventually get some use out of these.

Bookish pins

So many readers wear their love of books like a badge of honor, meaning that they'll happily utilize any book-related buttons or pins you give them.

Bookish tote bags

Tote bags are pretty easy to fold up, and Barnes & Noble sells ones with popular books on them. Find out their favorite classic, or just gift them a generic tote with a stack of books on it. Either way, they'll love it.

Bookish socks

The weather's cold and your bookworm friend probably can't wait to curl up with a gigantic book. Why not make their reading time even cozier with a new pair of socks?

This idea will be even cuter if you get them bookish socks, like this pair from Out of Print.

A bookish t-shirt

Believe it or not, you can squeeze a t-shirt into your book lover's stocking. And Out of Print sells adorable ones with book covers on the front.

They also just completed their line of "Harry Potter" shirts... just saying.

A giftcard to a bookstore

Can't fit an actual book in their stocking? Or don't know what book they'd actually want? Don't worry! You can always just give them a gift certificate to their local bookstore.

A short novel or novella

A hardcover book might not fit into a stocking, but a small mass-market paperback or novella certainly will. And you'll be hardpressed to find a reader who complains about getting new books for Christmas — even if they already have plenty of unread books on their shelves.

Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.
