Christmas Gift Guide for Book Lovers

Updated: Sep 28, 2023

Christmas is now less than 40 days away, and if you haven’t started your festive shopping this year yet then it’s a good idea to get cracking with it!

Something I am passionate about is supporting independent businesses. If you are looking for a gift for a book-lover in your life then here’s a selection of some of my favourites which I heartily recommend you check out this festive season!


I never go anywhere without a book, and my books are now always protected by a gorgeous sleeve from BookBestiesUK! You can choose from a wide variety of fabrics, whether fandom-related or not. You can also customise your sleeve to have a zip added, or choose to have a jacket which wraps around a book as well as a sleeve to pop it in. You can also choose between kindle, paperback and hardback sizes. BookBestiesUK

Ember Stag Candles There is nothing I like more than curling up with a book, a cup of tea and lighting a candle and Ember Stag Candles have the most lovely range of seasonal and bookish candles and wax melts to choose from. Whether you are looking for something inspired by classic or contemporary fandoms, then Ember Stag have it all (as well as a super cute Christmas range which has just gone on sale!)

What’s more, if you place an order before the end of November, you can use the code JOANNE10 at checkout for a discount!

Pagesmith Poetry Books If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my recent reels about this wonderful new gift company. Whatever the occasion, you can put together a personalised poetry collection with poems from one or two different themes for your loved ones. You can personalise the cover, the title and subtitle and add a dedication for the front page and then Pagesmith will automatically select the poems for you and print a stunning hardback book to treasure forever. Order by 25th November and use the code EARLYBF20 to get 20% off your book!

Bookish Companion from Karla Nikole A reading journal is a wonderful gift for a book lover and I just adore this one from Karla Nikole Publishing! With plenty of space for you to write about what you’ve read, what you liked and what you didn’t like about it as well as to add your star rating, this little book has space for 100 reviews, as well as notes and quotes at the back! Available in 2 different sizes, the Bookish Companion really is a perfect gift. Karla Nikole Bookish Companion

Literary Emporium The Literary Emporium has so many bookish goodies available including clothing, jewellery and stationery. I have so many different things from their collection and I love them all! One of my favourite things they sell are these brass bookmarks. The designs are so gorgeous, including some with quotes from classic literature, and they hold your place in your book perfectly without falling out – what more could you want? These are the perfect stocking fillers for your friendly neighbourhood reader!
