Do you know a book lover who owns too many books? (Is it you?) Perhaps you know a book lover, but don’t know their tastes. These gifts, though not books, are sure to please bibliophiles-without the need of clearing more shelf space.

Y’all know I love books (nearly as much as my children). But I’d rather receive these gifts then give up any seasonal decor real estate.

7 Gifts For Book Lovers

Funny Ankle Socks

It’s less rude if you say it with socks.

These socks got a 4.3/5 star rating on Amazon. Customers loved the witty command. Many reported that the socks “washed well.” A handful of reviewers wished the socks were longer.

Book Page Holder

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B07PHZRMVC&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=ishmom 20

This nifty wooden doo-hickey holds your book open so you have a free hand to drink coffee or eat a snack or whatever. How cool is that??

Consumers agree, rating this book page holder a 4.7/5 stars. The reviews are glowing. People loved the design, durability, feel and functionality of the book page holder.

Kate Spade Canvas Book Tote

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B07DD2CMXC&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=ishmom 20

I can’t wait to carry all my library books in this.

This canvas tote received a 4.6/5 star rating. Purchasers found the bag “cute” and “sturdy.” Some thought the bag was overpriced.

Personal Library Kit

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=1601060726&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=ishmom 20

Have you ever wanted to give out due dates when loaning your books? Now you can. The Knock Knock Company hits the nail on the head: “for a bibliophile, there’s no greater pleasure than sharing beloved books, but no crueler pain than losing them for good-until the Personal Library Kit.”

This useful novelty gift garnered a 4.7/5 rating. Book lovers were craaaazy about this personal library kit. Most bought two-one as a gift and one for themselves.

Novel Teas

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B002RT2W1M&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=ishmom 20

This set of 25 tea bags are tagged with individual literary quotes. It’s the perfect gift for both the tea and book lover (which seems to go hand-in-hand).ir?t=ishmom 20&l=li3&o=1&a=B002RT2W1M

Novel Teas were rated a 4 out of 5 stars. Customers loved the quotes and the flavor, but didn’t like that the tea bags were not individually wrapped.

Reading in Bed at Night Book Light

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B01MQPV22W&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=ishmom 20

The company that makes this book light is eager for the consumer to understand that it is made for reading. At night. In the dark.

Consumers rated the Reading In Bed At Night Book Light a 4/5 stars (but there were over a thousand reviews). They loved the book light’s lightweight body and bendy, easy maneuverable head. A point of contention was the brightness of the light. Those with poor eyesight loooooved the brightness. Others? Not so much.

Cute Throw Pillow Case

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B078N7YHYT&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=ishmom 20

This is the perfect pillow case for your favorite decorative throw pillow. That you lounge on while reading, of course.

It received a 4.5/5 star rating on Amazon. The lower ratings came from those who didn’t realize it was just the case (though it’s obviously cheaper than the average throw pillow).
