There are so many good gift ideas out there for bookish people, I thought I'd share some of my favorites. It can be hard to pick the right book for someone, but if you know they like books in general you may see something below that will be as appreciated for your acknowledging their love of the written word vs. having agonized if they prefer Sci Fi to Romance (or both!)

Many of these items are from indie makers/designers and I hope they'll forgive me for "lifting" some of their pics off Etsy or their site. I have made sure a link directly to their page is included with all of them. And don't forget - there's nothing wrong with treating yourself to a little something too!

Can I count the ways how much I love this? You know I've been art journaling lately, and what an awesome way to express a love for a subject than directly on a dictionary page of that subject! These would look awesome framed and in a library or quiet space for reading.

Anne of Green Gables set with artistic cover by Jacqui Oakley
I just love artist renderings of classic books. This set with cover illustrations by artist Jacqui Oakley belongs not just on a bookshelf, but displayed with pride on a coffee table or nightstand. You can find them at SourceBooks website.

Source Books also has more artistic covers for other L.M. Montgomery books, also by Jacqui Oakley:
