Gift Ideas for Kids who Love Books

Would you consider your child a book worm or an avid reader? Here are some unique bookish gift ideas for them — and maybe some other family members you know.




Book Light

Remember reading books under the covers with a flashlight as a kid? If you want your kids to have proper lighting to read, it might be time to get them a good book light. Upgrade from a basic flashlight to a clip-on version that attaches to a book or headboard for convenience.

Writing (or Reading) Gloves

Storiarts provides unique literary gifts including writing gloves. The fingerless gloves will leave you inspired with the words of classic tales — such as “Black Beauty,” “Peter Pan,” “The Raven,” “Pride and Prejudice,” “Wuthering Heights,” and more — printed on the soft material. They are perfect for cold winter nights spent writing or sitting by the fire and reading a book. Also, check out the company’s scarves and other gifts.



Book Nook

Surprise your child this year with a special place to read or write — a book nook. Find a place in the house or their room to decorate with all the bookish things they love. Include pillows, a canopy or a tent to create a place for them to relax with a book or write in a journal. Stock shelves with new releases, classics, notebooks and fun pens. For those who like to draw, provide a sketchbook and artist pencil set.
