Bookish Gifts: Non-Book Gifts for Book Lovers
Some people think that we already have enough books. They may be forgiven for their confusion 😉 However, they prefer to give Non-book Gifts for Book Lovers. So I think giving them a good selection of bookish gifts or bookish merch to choose from might help.
Mugs: for the reader who enjoys a hot drink, whether it’s coffee, tea, cider, or chocolate…
I had to walk away for a minute, I relate to all of these!!! (Tell me I’m not the only one!)
Scripture Mugs: Aren’t they beautiful and inspiring?
Tea: If you’re a tea-drinking bookworm, then this Novel Tea has bookish quotes from around the world!

Reading Journals and Book Logs
If you want to keep track of your all-time favorite books, then these reading journals are just the thing:
Or, there’s the Faith and Devotional Reading Journal I’ve created, that you can download for free. As far as gift ideas for book lovers go, this is pretty useful as a place to track all of your reading, and turn each book into its own devotional! This journal helps you with actively thinking through the themes of the book you’re reading, and having an open and honest conversation with God about it. Find out more and get your copy here.
I know Jesus is the light of the world, but check these out!
BookEnds: Okay, so most book lovers love cute bookends, but we don’t really have room for them. I mean, I could fit 8 books there! But there are some amazing styles, and if your book lover has room, they’d appreciate a pair of suitable bookends.
Coloring Books: okay, so technically they are still books, but not the kind you read and shut out reality (tell me I’m not the only one who does this!?!?).
This first group is totally bookish:
Library books are so fun. I’ve got a whole collection of the best library stories for kids, teens, and adults right here…
And then, these coloring books are based on some awesome books:
If you love Narnia, I’ve got 1 thing to say: Biblical Parallels.
Pilgrim’s Progress. Together on the journey through a life of Christian Allegories.
If Anne’s your Favorite, don’t forget to take a peek behind the scenes in her House of Dreams!!

Grace Goals is a unique approach to setting goals that work. It’s not the same as SMART goals, though that’s part of it. Grace Goals takes the time to consult God as you set your goal, and knowing you have His blessing. If you want to know a little about my experience with Grace Goals, click here.

Wearable Gift Ideas for Book Lovers: Accessories
There’s nothing quite like wearable bookish gifts! And these are so cool!
Scarves: I mean, really! “No, that’s okay, I won’t be bored, I’ll just read my scarf!” or “Quick, No one’s looking, I can get in a few sentences!” (Guilty on both counts!)
T-shirts: Make it obvious wherever you go, that reading is a good thing! I mean, if I could, I’d spend way too much time reading. But being surrounded by bookish items can help take the edge off.
Socks: Well, we wouldn’t want to be disturbed in the middle of the action, right? (Mooooommmmmmm, I’m Huuuuuungryyyyy!) Somehow, I don’t think even this kind of bookish merch will stop that, but we can pretend, can’t we?
Some of these are from my friend over at Christ-Centered Mama. and some of these Bible bookish items I just thought were cool!
I’m torn! which one do I choose?

Non-book Gifts for Book Lovers Health
If you have a typical bookworm in your life, they may need a little encouragement to be active. They probably would rather curl up with a book than go outside and ‘do something’ instead. We (I meant they!) do it, but under varying degrees of protest.
Faithful Finish Lines is not a book. It’s a Christian community, focusing on overall health. The goal isn’t a perfect number on the scale or the measuring tape. It is to worship and honor God and be the healthiest we can be.
There are several options, ranging from free Challenges to full memberships. Each includes Bible study, mindset changes and several have exercises.

Another great way to encourage movement with bookish merch, is an Audible Gift Subscription! Paired with a decent set of earbuds, naturally…
