Bookworm Gift Ideas That Aren’t Books
Book lovers tend to be really easy to find gifts for. There are so many books, from dozens of genres, published each year. You’re bound to find something your bookworm has on their to-read list.
However, what if you wanted to gift that bookworm friend or family member something other than a book?
I’ve created this guide for you!

The Bookworm’s Guide to Bookish Gifts
As a bookworm, I’m 100% guilty of ordering bookish merchandise online for myself. I love literature so much that I feel the need to show my appreciation for it outside of the pages.
And I know there are others like me, so I’m sharing with you my favourite finds your bookworm will appreciate as well!
Frostbeard Studio Book Themed Soy Candles
The first thing I want to say about these candles is that I haven’t run into a scent I didn’t like. In addition, the fragrances added to the soy candles fit perfectly with the chosen names. My favourite thing to do is light one in the evening when I’m winding down and reading before bed.
My favourite book-themed soy candles so far are “Bookstore“, “Divination Classroom“, “Headmaster’s Office” and “Sherlock’s Study“. I tend to go for the warm and cozy scents over the bright and fresher ones but that’s just my preference.
Their candles come in four sizes, 2oz, 4oz, 8oz, and tarts. I personally like the larger 8oz glass jars, but also get the 4oz for cheaper shipping. For the bookworm, I recommend gifting multiple 2oz candles if they haven’t purchased these before. The 2oz size is perfect for testing out which fragrances you prefer best.
I love these candles so much I made a review video of them in my Instagram stories. I’ve uploaded it to YouTube so you can access it here! I apologize for the vertical camera, this was originally filmed for Instagram!

Framed Book Themed Prints by Indigo
Indigo’s prints with their quality frames would make the perfect gift for someone with their own place. I recommend mounting them in an Indigo gallery frame. I have the books and glasses print (but in black and white), in a black frame with white matting and love it!
“Bookmarks Are For Quitters”
This is a great gift for someone who likes to express their interests in fashion. The shirt is available in a variety of colours and a couple of fits. I recommend the unisex fit because it is soft and has a slight stretch. The writing is done by BlockMerch in California, United States.
“She is too Fond of Books and it Has Turned Her Brain.” Louisa May Alcott Tote
The perfect gift for the bookworm who borrows too many library books and needs to bring a tote! Printed by MinnieandMaude from Ohio, United States. The tote is made from heavy duty natural cotton canvas. This shop has a variety of book-themed totes so if this print doesn’t do it for you make sure to check their selection!
Book Themed Vinyl Record Clock
Made from new vinyl, this Etsy shop transformed this record into a book-themed clock! Any bookworm would love this vintage style bookish gift. Manufactured by VinylShopUS, they ship out of Georgia, United States. They also do custom designs and you have the option of record colours! I personally like the black, but you can do white, gold, silver, dark grey, and beige.
I hope you found this gift guide helpful in your search for the perfect gift for the bookworm in your life.
