Welcome to the #ChristianBooktober Party! Today’s focus: Bookish Merch! All the Bookish Jewelry, Decor, and other great Non-Book gifts for book lovers in your life! (Including some great Bible studies)
In case you missed it, #ChristianBooktober is a month-long celebration of Christian Literature and the best Bookish items around.
So far we have talked about Celebrate Lit, the Awesome Christian Book Publicity Group; explored Biblical & Historical fiction and Suspense. All the links are at the bottom of the page.
There are many more spotlights and reviews coming, but so is Christmas! So today I went a little crazy, and put together a collection of fun bookish items for that special book addict in your life!
And if they happen to be somewhat playful, here’s a collection of Boookish Games you don’t want to miss!!
Bookish Merch for Women Who Love To Read
Women who love to read tend to get a little bit excited about all of the neat bookish items out there these days! At least I was drooling a little over the treasures I’m sharing today!
I had no idea some of this even existed, and I hope you’ll find just the right something you’ve been looking for!
(By the way, if you need bookish gifts for some of your favorite kids who love to read, I’ve got you covered!)
Please note that this post contains affiliate links for your convenience. If you make a purchase through one of the links, I may make a small commission. I only recommend books and resources that I’ve enjoyed personally, or believe that you would like. You can read my full disclosure here. You will also find information on Scripture translations there.
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!
Bookish Merch: Reading Accessories
Reading Accessories are just the thing to complement the bookworm’s reading life! I’m still amazed by all the bookish merch available today. It gives new meaning to the bookish life!
Bookish Tote Bags:
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:
Perfect for starting a Reading Goal for a 52 Week Challenge!
Or, there’s the Faith and Devotional Reading Journal I’ve created, that you can download for free. As far as bookish goodies 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!!
Did you see the new version: Darcy By Any Other Name? It’s a body-swap romance!
And Here’s a Few Bible Verse Coloring Books!
Bookish Items: Biblical Workbooks and Prayer Guides
These Bookish Goodies have Spiritual impact! If you love books and workbooks, then these are the perfect bookish items, providing an opportunity to grow your faith!
Printed, tucked in a binder and tucked in a little gift basket, these would make awesome bookish gifts for you next ladies retreat!
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.
This devotional is amazing any time of the year, but especially during the spring. Lent, Easter, Pentecost. “Praying the Promises of the Cross” walks you through some incredible passages, and intentionally applies the truth!
Beautiful Bookish Gifts: Jewelry
Beautiful Bookish gifts for for a very special someone: Bookish Jewelry is so much fun! I had no idea that some of these existed!
Keychains and A Cute Library Due Date Compact
Of course, there’s always a Kindle Unlimited subscription. That would fix a book budget drain if
you They are having a problem controlling the budget! That’s the best bookish merch around, access to more books!
Bible Bookish Jewelry
I couldn’t leave these out, there’s plenty of awesome Scripture jewelry, too! They’d make great bookish gifts to tuck in to that ladies retreat gift basket we were just talking about, too!
Bookish Goodies: Accessories
There’s nothing quite like Wearable Bookish Goodies! 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.
Getting Active with Audible: One of the Best Bookish Gifts!
With an Audible subscription, you can listen to someone reading to you while you are doing anything from washing dishes to going for a walk! There’s a free trial if you’re not sure whether you would use this. (You get 2 free audiobooks to keep!)
