It’s that time of year again. Here are a few suggestions for holiday gifts for the book lovers in your life.
SIGNED OR SPECIAL EDITION HARDBACKS
There’s something special about receiving a signed hardback. Particularly in a world where we’re spending so much time online. Check to see if your loved one’s favorite author offers signed hardbacks or has special editions available. As an example, here’s a link to the store of one of my favorite authors, Brandon Sanderson, offering leather-bound editions, plus swag.
GIFT DONATE TO A FAVORITE AUTHOR’S KICKSTARTER
If your loved one has a favorite author who is running a Kickstarter campaign that includes such goodies as an early copy of a book and/or associated swag, you should be able to donate to the campaign so that you get billed but your loved one’s name and address are used for fulfillment. NOTE: I haven’t actually tried this, but I think it should work.
BOOK LOVER FACE MASKS
CUSTOM EREADER COVER
If your loved one is reading mainly on an ereader, why not consider getting them a custom ereader cover? Here’s a cover on Etsy for Kindle readers where you can upload your own photos.
And here’s one that’s supposed to fit a variety of different models of ereader, with book-themed covers. This is an example of what the Sherlock Holmes one looks like.
Here's a lovely notebook on Etsy for tracking books read, thoughts on each book, and even for writing down favorite quotes.
