Purchase a thoughtful gift to support the passion that your friend has for reading. Your gift should show that you appreciate the fondness that the person has for books. Show that your friend's knowledge is endearing to you. Encourage the person's love for books by getting an item to celebrate her love for reading.


Books and bookstores are quickly being replaced with the latest fad, e-readers. Give an e-reader to a book lover, who should appreciate the convenience of reading her favourite book anywhere. E-readers permit the recipient to download books and read them from a lightweight electronic device. Get an e-reader that has no reflections so the recipient can read outside with no glare. Also, purchase an e-reader that is wireless so the recipient can download books wherever she is.

Collector's Edition Books

Listen to the book lover when she speaks about her favourite stories. For instance, the person might tell you about her favourite book from childhood or her long-time favourite book. Then purchase a collector's edition of the book. Some collector's edition books come in nice hard cases and some are bound in leather. Get a book that is autographed by the writer, if possible. The book lover will appreciate that she can add a meaningful book to her collection.

Bookworm Items

Get a bookworm item to celebrate that this person loves books. For instance, some people might appreciate a bookworm stuffed animal. A bookstore might carry stuffed animals of worms reading books. Then include a sweet message about how happy you are that the person loves to read. Alternatively, get a T-shirt or a sweatshirt that has a bookworm on it. The recipient should find this gift humorous, although some children might get embarrassed that you are labelling them a "bookworm."


Bookends are a thoughtful gift if the person has a new home and needs to decorate it. Get bookends in the shape of punctuation marks, such as exclamation marks or commas. The recipient should think that the gift is sweet if she enjoys studying English grammar. Alternatively, get some bookends that support a hobby or passion of the person. For instance, purchase bookends in the shape of lions and monkeys if the person loves reading about animals as well as travel.
