For the reader who loves to get cozy in bed with a good book.
BUDGET: PILLOW TABLET HOLDER
A pillow tablet holder is a perfect addition for those who enjoy reading in their bed, whether it be a book or tablet. Handmade ones like these make for great style with an artisan touch.
Starting at $16.49 on Etsy.
SPLURGE: GOOSENECK TABLET HOLDER
A tablet holder like this is sure to be able to hold whatever device your book lover reads on. With a floor stand, there's no worry of furniture damage from a clamp. And with a heavy base and height adjustment, reading from any angle just got a whole lot more comfortable.
$69.99 on Amazon.
For the reader who is always on the go.
BUDGET: BOOKISH TOTE
Is this a shameless plug for a tote that I sell? Yes, but hear me out. I ordered one as a test product and have used it every sense. From carting a couple books home from my local bookstore, to being stuffed full from a book con haul, this bag hasn't failed me yet.
$19.95 at Bookworms & Biblios.
While it's true you can read on a phone or tablet, reading on an e-reader is truly unmatched, and there's a reason why the Kindle is a bestseller. With features that allow you to read in direct sunlight or by the pool (it's waterproof) and ridiculously long battery life, it's perfect for any adventure.
Starting at $109 on Amazon.
For the reader who loves a lasting impression.
BUDGET: PERSONALIZED BOOK EMBOSSER
There's nothing quite like leaving your mark behind, and a book embosser is a perfect way to do it. This gift will allow them to add a personal touch to their personal library.
Starting at $35 on Etsy.
SPLURGE: SPECIAL EDITION BOOK SET
These are a work of art, and I'm not just talking about the novels themselves. With this set, you are gifting three beautiful classic romance books that feature gorgeous cover illustrations, gilded gold edges, and slipcases, making them the perfect addition to any bookshelf.
$119.97 on Litjoy.
For the reader at the beginning of their adventure.
