Tis the season — 2022 gift guide season that is! Today’s gift guide is all about gifts for book lovers on Amazon!
I’ve done some book lover gift guides before but I always get requests for more presents that you can get last minute and quickly so I thought I’d do a whole post on book lover gifts on Amazon!
I know sometimes I need to utilize that Prime subscription I have, to justify its ever growing cost, and I love how quickly I can get gifts when I’m running a bit behind or I thought of something else I wanted to add to my gift!
So let’s explore some gift ideas for book lovers on Amazon that I found and think would make great gifts:

GIFTS FOR BOOK LOVERS ON AMAZON
I realized a couple years ago that there a quite a bit of literary gifts on Amazon when I was looking for some extra things for the bookish Secret Santa I run every year.
I’ve broken them up by type to make it easier to peruse what you thing your resident bibliophile might be into. I’m always updating this guide to be sure to save it for any time of the year!
The range is wide — I’ve got SO MANY inexpensive gift ideas for readers & book lovers (talking under $15 or $10), plenty of mid-priced and a smattering of more pricey gifts.
Sort Of Obvious (But Maybe Not) Gifts For Books Lovers On Amazon
Okay so maybe these are the most obvious gifts for readers on Amazon but I would feel remiss not reminding you of what good gifts they make.
And maybe you are like REALLY lost on the ways of readers and these things ARE new to you. That’s what I’m here for…to help you and to make your bookworm happy.
1. A new Kindle:
Is your bookworm an e-book lover and in need of an upgrade to their Kindle? The new Kindle is fantastic!
2. Kindle Unlimited:
If your bookworm loves to read on their Kindle, why not gift them a subscription to Kindle Unlimited? I think it depends on what your giftee likes to read but I always have found enough to justify having a subscription. You can check out my review of Kindle Unlimited and who I think would enjoy it!
3. Audible Subscription:
I love listening to audiobooks so much and these services can be pricey. I feel like it’s TOTALLY something I would LOVE to be gifted because it’s a luxury to me. Audiobooks have been perfect for the gym, long commutes and even when I’m just doing easy tasks like folding laundry.
Plus you get two free audiobooks when you try it! I LIKE FREE! Audible is just one of my favorite gifts for readers on Amazon because it they can still pick out the books they want to read with their credits from their membership. If your bookworm would read all day if they could, gift them the ability to be able to (almost) do that.
(Full disclosure: My audiobook service of choice these days is personally Libro.Fm (I love their mission and what they stand for) but I loved when I was first gifted and had Audible for years — gave me so much more of a selection than my library app and it’s more well known for most people)
4. Prime Book Box:
Have little bookworms on your list? The Prime Book Box will be such fun mail for them to get! Good age ranges for the box and a few ways to customize it if you are looking for a gift for a kid who loves books! I am adding this to Riley’s Christmas list for this year again because nobody got my hint last year! Check out my guide to the best book subscription boxes for little kids.

5. Gift Idea: A Literary Tote Bag
One of the many great gifts for book lovers on Amazon that I don’t think any bookworm would pass up are literary totes! Great for carrying all those books after you buy them/borrow them/bring them to a gathering to share (what…. you don’t do that??).
I LOVE the Out of Print totes so much! They have so many other great ones here but this one is my favorite. They are nice and sturdy which I appreciate for lugging my books back and forth from the library.
As I said above, my favorite totes are the Out of Print literary totes (and the Kate Spade one!!) and I’ve added a bunch of them in here! Great designs, great quality.

6. A reading journal
I love my reading journal and the layout is similar to this one (my isn’t from Amazon so doesn’t fit the “gifts for book lovers from” Amazon theme).
I love being able to keep track of what I’m reading and my feelings. Always fun to look back at them and readers always geek out about stuff like this. “

7. This nifty little thing to hold your book in the bath
Give your bookworm the gift of relaxation and no fear of dropping their book in the bath with this great bamboo bath tray! Book, glass of wine and some bubbles…you won’t see them for a while!
I promise you, add these Ouai “Chill Pill” bath bombs with this gift and this is THE perfect gift for a reader. Seriously, relaxing with a book is the most crucial part of de-stressing for me.
8. This Bibliophile puzzle
I bought a similar one from this brand in 2020 when we were at home and I’d recommend it but the white spaces were KILLER on that one. I have purchased this one but haven’t done it yet but I’d likely recommend this one over the one I bought if you don’t want to pull your hair out.
But there is nothing more that I enjoy than listening to an audiobook, sipping some tea and working on a puzzle on a cold winter day and I highly recommend this as a cute and different gift for a bibliophile.
Other great options:
9. Gift Idea: This cute book lover charm necklace
10. Gift Idea: A cute bookish ornament
Add a bibliophile touch to their Christmas celebration — a great gift for a reader/book lover!
11. Gift Idea: A book seat
This was one of those things I saw for the first time and thought “immediately no, who really needs one of these?” Then I had a friend start raving about it and naturally it piqued my interest and now I can’t tell you how much this is a great gift idea for the reader in your life.
I got it after hurting my back and needed to be better about my reading positions and I love being able to get more comfortable positions for reading sessions plus a little hands free action with this pillow and the page holder feature. It even holds some of my bigger fantasy tomes comfortably which has been a huge game-changer.
A great, practical gift idea for a book lover that will give them the gift of even more comfortable and cozy reading time!
12. This adorable Jane Mount book vase
I am in love with these vases but most of them are no longer sold — scoop this one up while it is still available! I hope she will produce more of these because they are adorable and make great unique gifts for readers!

13. A unique bookmark
Amazon has some really unique bookmarks that the bibliophile in your life probably doesn’t have and will become their go-to bookmark.
14. A book sleeve to keep their books protected
If the reader in your life is one to throw their books in their purse haphazardly and go (me, it’s me) get them this book sleeve to help protect their book and keep it pristine!
Just make sure you check out the dimensions as most brands have different sizes –ie some smaller ones to fit mass market paperbacks all the way up to larger ones for big hardcover fantasy tomes — and will often say which sizes fit what types of books.
I always try to think about what they read a lot of when I gift these but a safe bet is always the medium type size because they will generally fit your typical sized book.
Other options to check out:
15. A literary candle
Nothing like setting the (reading) mood with a literary candle! I have bought and used this company’s candles for years (first found them on Etsy!) and I highly recommend!
16. Any of the Out Of Print socks
Honestly Amazon has so many options when it comes to literary-themed socks so definitely peruse through them.
Some of the Out of Print socks featured below seem to default to the first option on the list so you have to go to the dropdown. If you are looking for them, the first one is “Book Nerd“, the 3rd is Read Your Socks Off and the 4th is “Books Books Books.”
Other literary socks:
17. These other awesome Jane Mount items
A cute Jane Mount keychain, cute postcards, a reader’s journal & THE MOST ADORABLE BOOKENDS. Any combination of these items would be a lovely gift as Jane Mount’s work is beautiful.
18. Any of these awesome book themed accessories
19. Any of this bookish mugs
Books + a hot beverage = one of the coziest reader faves.
20. One of these cute wine glasses
And if we aren’t drinking coffee or tea….it’s probably wine (definitely me, okay).
21. These fuzzy socks in a cute cupcake package
What a cute little gift idea for book lovers — especially a book club gift! You can’t go wrong with fuzzy socks!
22. Something for their wall
23. A stylish decorative pillow for their favorite reading spot
My favorite reading spot is covered in blankets and pillows and these would be the perfect addition for the person on your list who loves book!
24. A book inspired tee
25. This useful page holder
If you a reader, YOU KNOW the pains of trying to keep your book open. Maybe you want to have a drink or a snack at the same time? Maybe you have a kid running around who might need you for various things? Have a free hand with this page holder so you can read with one hand!
If you are looking for Harry Potter Christmas decorations I’ve got you!
