Gifting to a book lover can feel a bit daunting. It’s hard to pick books for somebody whose taste you may not be familiar with.

Also, picking out books for friends can be challenging because even if you know theme or authors they’re crazy about, it’s possible they’ve already read the book you so carefully chose and wrapped with them in mind. That’s why it’s never a bad idea to purchase items that can help to make an avid reader’s life more enjoyable instead of actually purchasing a specific novel or autobiography.

We’ve searched far and wide for the perfect bookworm accoutrements.

From cozy, snuggly blankets perfect for long couch reading sessions to cheeky bookish mugs for tea and coffee to audiobook subscription services that might be the most perfect gift they ever receive.
