Book Inspired Holiday Gifts

Just in time for the holidays, I have my post for book inspired holiday gifts.  So many of you know readers but aren’t sure what books they have already, or which might pique their interest.  Well, a present inspired by great stories can be just as wonderful for the readers in your life.  So here are a few of my can’t miss choices.  Also, check out my selections from last year which still make me smile: Holiday Gifts for Kids

Please note that you can link to the products by clicking on the product names.  Also, I receive no compensation for recommending these products, they are simply gifts that I found charming.



100 Kids Books – Scratch Off Bucket List Poster is $29 from Amazon

How cool is this?  I don’t know about your kids, but mine would see this as a challenge.  (I actually got the adult version for my college age son!)  Nothing says get out and read like the quest to scratch off every book on this list.  Titles range from picture books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar to The BFG, Harry Potter and A Wrinkle In Time.  You may find yourself with a trip to the bookstore the day after opening this present so that kids can finish scratching!




Page Turner Bookmark is $14 from Anthropologie

How cute is this bookmark for a stocking stuffer? A funny sentiment along with those cute tassels make for a very fashionable read.



Compliment Pencil Set is $10 from Shopbop

With sayings like “YOU ARE SO SMART” and “YES YOU TOTALLY CAN” kids will be inspired to write their own stories with these pencils that not only say nice things but will also motivate them.




Sorting Hat Bath Bomb  is $10.99 on Amazon

Are you a Hufflepuff, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Gryffindor?  Drop this bath bomb into the tub, watch it fizz and see if the bath water turns green, red, blue or yellow.  Fans of Harry Potter will anxiously await bath time to see the house where they have been sorted.



Personalized Book Necklace is $13.50 on Etsy

How about a piece of jewelry that allows your kids to share something about themselves that they love – books.  This can be personalized with their birthstone and initial so that everyone knows that books are one of their true joys!


Flying Wish Paper is $12.95 at Paper Source

Write your special wish down, roll it up in the tube and then light it.  Your wish will burn and then be lifted up in the air.  How fun would this be to do on New Year’s Day?  I have plenty of wishes for the new year I would like sent out into the universe!










Supergirl or Superboy Bookends are $27.95 each on Amazon

I think these look so clean and modern!  Reading really does give you superpowers so why not show them off with a place to hold your books.  Totally for the coolest reader on the block.
