The Holidays are right upon us, and if you're anything like me, you're totes procrastinating on even thinking about what to get anybody. People are hard to shop for, okay? Which is why I'm here to maybe make your gift-giving a little easier during this wonderful season! Actually I'm probably not the best person to do this hence my procrastination. But I only procrastinate on the buying part. I like to window-shop 25/8, or interwebz-shop, because crowds? No, thank you.
But, be warned: This is a Gift Guide for the Lover of ALL THINGS BOOKISH. I mean, come on, this is a book blog. :P
What better thing to get the reader in your life, than BOOKS?! Totally blew your mind, didn't I? I'm a genius when it comes to giving books as gifts (because I'm a book pusher). What better way to book push than to give those exact books to EVERYONE. Forget whether or not they're a reader, these books will MAKE them a reader. Let's just kill two birds with one stone this holiday season!
I am pretty typical with my recommended reads this year, but each time I go to pick out book rec's, these books just keep screaming at me to choose them. You can't go wrong with any of these books! Whether your reader is into fantasy (The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh / A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab / Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo), sci-fi (Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff / Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner) or contemporary/FEELS (Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway / HELLO? by Liza Wiemer), these books will blow them away!
But then again, maybe you don't want to go the cliche route or you don't know if the person you are buying for already has these books (if so, then they have impeccable taste!). So here are a few things I rounded up that I'm pretty sure any bibliophile would go nuts for!
Levi's Pumpkin Mocha Breve 8 Oz. Soy Candle from NovellyYours / I Solemnly Swear That I am up to no Good Harry Journal from IceyDesigns / Rattle the Stars bookmark from SkinnyHues / Literary Art Print from brightdesignscle / The Assassin magnetic bookmark from HappyHelloCo / A TOTE FROM PIVOT BOOK TOTES (shameless plug for my etsy shop!)
And if all else fails and you're still at a loss for what to get them? Amazon/B&N/Local Bookstore GIFT CARDS are your best bet!
