Everyone knows a bookworm, but not everyone is sure what exactly to get them when it comes to holiday gift-giving. Of course, bookstore gift cards usually go over well and a new book is always appreciated, but it often happens that those who want to go the extra mile are left scratching their heads when trying to find the perfect gift for their favorite book fanatic.
If you find yourself in this position, you might consider a homemade gift basket. Here are a few of the amazing things you might want to include in your book lover's basket:
Throw Blanket — Long winter nights spent curled up on the couch with a good book can get pretty chilly. Help keep your reading friend warm with a snuggly throw blanket.
Snacks — Munchy snacks (such as cookies or trail mix) are great for storytime snacking. Hot chocolate is another fabulous option that will keep your loved one warm while reading.
A Book or Bookstore Gift Card — As mentioned before, both of these gifts would be adored by any book lover. Make it personal by adding a message inside the book's front cover, a homemade bookmark hidden in the pages, or a personalized card to hold the gift card.
Reading Light — Reading lights are crucial for late-night reading sessions. This is especially true for anyone with a roommate who values their sleep. Find one at the dollar store or a box store for very little money and toss it in.
Personalized Tumbler or Mug — To add some personality to your gift basket, throw in a personalized mug or tumbler. Purchase your favorite blank mug or tumbler from your local box store and decorate it with one of our many tumbler mug decals. Be sure to pick something you know the recipient will love!
These are just a few of the many items you might add to a book lover's gift basket. Get creative and see what other ideas you can come up with.
Remember, this is the season of giving, and gifts from the heart are the ones our family and friends will treasure the most.
