17 Gifts For Your Best Friend Who Loves To Read


With November well on its way, the holiday season is officially upon us. But before you go freaking out about how much you still have to do and what little time you have to do it with, take a deep breath. Because I'm here to help you figure out the perfect bookish gift for at least one very important person on your list: your brilliant, bibliophile BFF. "But," you're probably thinking, "my friend has pretty much every book on the planet, and so much book swag that she might very well qualify for an episode of Hoarders." And, believe me, I get it.

Shopping for your reader pals can be particularly difficult when you don't know what books they have or want to have in their home libraries and so many bookish enamel pins they could fill two whole denim jackets. Luckily, bookish items are always in style and so there are always tons of new and unique bits to pick up, even for the best friend who seemingly has it all. Below are 17 items, at a range of price points, that any book reader would love to find in their stocking or under the tree this year:
