Looking for the perfect gift for the book lover in your life, but aren’t looking to gift them an actual book? We’ve got you covered. Bookworms unite!
It’s almost always super tough to actually buy someone a book because you don’t totally know their reading taste and you never really know if they’ve already read it. There are some really cool gift ideas out there, but so many options always seem to be filled with bookmarks and Harry Potter books (not that there’s anything wrong with either of those), but we’re recommending some really unique picks for women, men, and even the kids that love to read.
Shop our picks for some of the best gifts for book lovers that aren’t books in 2023!
