Christmas Gift Guide 2016: Gifts for Readers


If you have a bookish guy or girl on your list, I cordially invite you to scroll through these fresh literary finds.

As a voracious reader myself (I strive to read at least 100 books per year in a variety of genres), I can assure you that I would be delighted to receive any of the gifts below.

P.S. Are you on goodreads? I am!

Black Beauty


Published by Dover, this stunning hardcover is elegant in midnight black with sparkling metallic silver accents. The text is a large print with wide margins for easy reading. Illustrations throughout by Cecil Aldin. A gift any book (or horse) lover would be thrilled to have on his/her shelf!

Book Darts


These tiny, metallic "darts" are adorable, to be sure. They are also exceptionally useful for marking your place or "highlighting" your favorite sentences as you read. Super as a stocking stuffer due to their small size!

Book Shaped Serving Platters


Serve up scones, cinnamon rolls, or oatmeal cookies on a book-shaped platter at your next book club. Available in three different sizes, these heavy-duty platters add sophistication to any event. We love that they are a bright white that will match any decor.

Collectible Classics by The Folio Society



Lit lovers will gasp in admiration at the sight of the collectible classics by The Folio Society. Hardbound in rich colors with gorgeous hand lettering, the books are a treasure. Each heirloom-quality book also features delightful illustrations in vivid colors and larger-than-average type. Photos really can't do justice to how magnificent these books are.

Crossway Journaling Bible


Give the Bible-readers on your list a place to journal their thoughts, prayers, and poems...instead of trying to scribble notes in the margins. Leather-bound journaling Bibles by Crossway offer simplistic grace in design. We'd love to see future versions with larger text, thicker paper, and/or radiant illustrations. A children's version is also coming out in 2017.

Gel Pens by ZenZoi


Most readers are also writers - and, thus, a fine collection of gel pens is a very pertinent gift. ZenZoi offers a premier set with 48 vivid colors that gloss across the paper. They can be used for journaling, doodling, letter writing, even crafting a memoir or novel on paper.

Power of Books Side Table


Any bookworm will be proud to add this handsome and elegant end table to their living room, bedroom, or home library. The stacked books are a regal array of deep, metallic colors and it's the kind of furniture that adds both beauty & character to a room.

Designed by English artist Sascalia, the Summer Adventure fleece throw blanket is a noteworthy gift for any girl who perpetually has her nose in a book. This gorgeous print is beautifully replicated on the blanket w/ vibrant, eye catching colors. It's super soft and snuggly too. She'll want to get under it guessed it...a good book!
