It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to think about gift lists and finding the perfect presents for my family and friends! This week, I’ve compiled a list of bookish gift ideas for the book lovers in your life. I hope that you will find inspiration for a wonderful gift idea from this list!

We love playing games as a family, and these three bookish games are family favorites.
Richard Scarry’s Best Storybook Ever was one of my favorites as a child, and I shared my copy with my boys when they were little. We discovered the Busytown Game based on his books and have played it many times as a family over the years. I especially love the search and find component of the game, and the fact that we were working as a team to finish.
Knowing some Harry Potter fans live in our house, a friend gave us the Harry Potter Clue game last year. It puts a fun twist on the original Clue game by introducing spell cards, Harry Potter characters, and the different houses and classrooms within Hogwarts to make a magical game. I love the secret passages and how entrances can become blocked while you play!
Authors card game
This classic game was a favorite of mine as a child and although I don’t have my original game, I was able to buy it for us to play. If you aren’t familiar with the game, it is similar to Go Fish, but instead of suits, the cards are marked with famous authors and their books. It’s fun, and it will familiarize your children with the works of famous authors!
We also love working on jigsaw puzzles as a family. Right now we are working on a 1,000 piece puzzle of my hometown, and it is TOUGH! Earlier this year, we put together the Ludicrous Library puzzle by Ravensburger. It is a 500 piece puzzle and challenging with all of the staircases and books, but it was so fun to put together! Ravensburger puzzles are always made so well, and we weren’t disappointed with this one.
If you have a fan of a certain book/series in your house, consider a companion book to go along with it! Have you seen Wonder yet? We loved the book, and I hope to go see the movie soon! These companion books would make great gifts if your child has read the book and/or seen the movie.
This new Harry Potter book looks amazing! I know my HP fan would love to examine each page!
These two Percy Jackson companion books include the myths and legends discussed in Rick Riordan’s books. They are amazing, and my PJ fan has loved learning the “real” stories!
I love this Read wall decal! It would be so cute in the reading corner of a child’s bedroom, or even a classroom library! I may just have to order one myself…
Book Display Shelves
I love my Kindle, and my Kindle app. I use them all the time to download eBooks from Amazon as well free eBooks from the public library. Although I do sometimes read on an iPad, I like also having the option of a regular Kindle. The glare free-screen doesn’t hurt my eyes and comes in handy when I’m reading in the sun. A Kindle makes a great gift!
The readers in our house sometimes need to read in the dark. When we do, we love using one of these two booklights:
The most bookish of all bookish gifts: Books! Consider giving a boxed set to someone on your list. These beautiful matched sets will be a great addition to any personal library:
Or you could always give the gift of an Amazon Giftcard! I love giving the giftcards that have books on them to encourage reading. What a treat it is to be able to pick out a book!
