Warm flannel blanket, hot cup of cider, fuzzy socks, crackling fire--most readerly people aren't just here for the books, we're here for the entire literary lifestyle.
When shopping for the book lover in your life or for yourself (No judgment. This is a safe space.), books are an easy YES. You can never go wrong buying the latest title from a favorite author, especially if they are clean and captivating! However, if you're looking for a little something extra to put under the tree for a bookworm, look no further.
I've compiled a list of bookish gift ideas for the reader in your life. Should that "reader" be you, feel free to pass this list along to any and all of your potential Secret Santas.
Please note: With supply chains being quite shaky in these crazy times, be sure to put your orders in early to ensure pre-Christmas delivery.

Since getting a personalized reading stamp for my birthday in September, I've been working my way through my entire library, stamping my moniker in the lower right-hand corner of each flyleaf. I'm in love!

For a whimsical addition to your book club meeting, consider wearing any of the Out of Print brand literary socks. I received a navy blue, library card-themed pair last year in my Christmas stocking. They feel like a treat for my feet.
I wish you could see me right now. I've got one hand on my keyboard and the other hand holding my due date mug. I typically drink my coffee in an ugly, albeit thermally efficient tumbler. But sometimes, a girl needs less practical and more pretty in her life. I'm a minimalist, so I don't keep kitschy mugs. This is my one exception. It was a gift from a friend and I think of her every time I pour a cup.
Right now, you can grab 4 months of Audible Premium Plus for only $7.95. That's 46% off the regular monthly subscription price. I've logged 89 titles in my reading journal so far this year. Audible has played a huge part in that ballooning total of books.
