If you're sweating to find the perfect present for a book-lover, you've come to the right place. There are tons of great literary gifts out there that any reader will absolutely adore. So, let's talk one of my favorite parts of the holiday celebrations: stocking stuffers.
Sometimes it can be easy to forget about stockings and leave that piece of shopping to the last minute. But don't panic! With the items on this list, you'll have those stockings filled in no time — with plenty of great surprises for your entire list!
Of course, you don't have to have a stocking or even celebrate Christmas to appreciate a good stocking stuffer. These items all make great little gifts on their own for any of the various people in your life, from co-workers to teachers to friends. Each one of these is sure to brighten the day of whoever receives it.
Sometimes the best surprises come in small packages. On this list you'll find cute treasures that will bring a little joy into any book-lover's day-to-day. There are literary accessories that will make the perfect addition to any reader's wardrobe. You'll also find plenty of fun bookish toys and games that will be a hoot to play with. (Which can also double as a fun activity for after present-opening!) And of course, you'll also find some essential reader gear, including tiny notebooks and delightful bookmarks, that will fuel any bookworm's love for reading and writing. While there's a wide range of items, they're all sized perfectly to fit right into a Christmas stocking.
No matter how you're spreading the cheer this holiday season, don't miss these great literary stocking stuffers. These little gifts are sure to light a huge smile on any reader's face.
The folks at Electric Literature are the masterminds behind this hilarious card game, which happens to be perfectly sized for stockings. A bookish version of Cards Against Humanity, Papercuts is a gift everyone at the party can enjoy.
How adorable are these tiny little match boxes? Each one is made to look like a classic banned book, including Slaughterhouse-Five, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Black Beauty, Song of Solomon, and Farenheit 451.
These lovely little soaps will invoke the flavors of your favorite classics. Enjoy three clever scents: Shakespeare's Bard of Soap, Jane Austen's Suds and Sensibility, and Lady Macbeth's Guest Hand Soap.
Books and tea are the perfect pair! Bingley's Teas, as the name indicates, contains a ton of products inspired by Jane Austen's novels. This one — an homage to Lizzie from Pride and Prejudice — is the shop's best-selling character tea.
Of course, no stocking is complete without a few sweets. Any Harry Potter fan will adore getting a package of these classic wizard candies, ranging in traditional flavors to the, er, less traditional. (Alas, earwax!)
