On the fifth day of Blogmas SWB brings you a Christmas gift guide filled with ideas for the book lover in your life, or to pass on to give others a wee hint about what they can buy you!
I’ve included pictures and links below but I’m not affiliated with any of the brands/websites below they are just things I’ve seen and liked the look of! All images belong to the relative websites.
A Beautiful Book
I’m sure like me many a bookworm is a sucker for a beautiful book and publishers are definitely picking up on this trend and creating some absolutely beautiful editions of both classic tales and newer releases at a whole range of price points, from the everyday affordable to the rather more expensive! Alternatively take advantage of the fact a lot more Young Adult novels are published as hardbacks in the US and get the book lover in your life a hardback edition of their favourite YA book!

Book Related Items
If you’ve got a book lover in your life you’ll know you can never have too many book related things – whether it’s a book cosy to stop their paperback getting damaged in their bag, or a light to sneakily read by at night. There’s certainly no such thing as too many bookmarks!

Who doesn’t like something to complement their favourite book?! Some fandoms are much more widely catered for than others, if you’ve a Harry Potter fan in your life the possibilities are somewhat endless, from house badge pins, to Lego, and the most gorgeous movie prop replicas. Other fandoms are still well represented, others not so much… I’m still waiting for my range of Dark Gifts merch! However if your favourite fandom isn’t represented out their in the wonderful world of merch there is still a beautiful variety of general bookish things out there to enjoy!
