Gift Ideas for Readers Under $100

by - December 17, 2022

Shopping for a reader doesn't have to be difficult. I had a lot of fun putting together a bookworm's gift guide last year, so I decided to update it for this year.

Obviously you can't go wrong with a gift card to Barnes and Noble or for Kindle. An ereader is also never a bad gift. I'm a big fan of the Kindle Paperwhite. There are also a ton of book subscription boxes out there that would make good gifts (I've done Illumicrate in the past). You won't find any of these on this list, but I hope this collection of ideas helps you find the perfect gift or stocking stuffer.

1. Novel Tea - I prefer coffee, but there are a lot of readers who love to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea. This collection of 25 individually-bagged English breakfast teas is perfect for those readers. Each teabag comes with a literary quote, and the whole thing costs less than $15.

2. Hand-Embroidered Leather Corner Bookmark - Is there such a thing as too many bookmarks? I really like these page corner style ones. Now, you can find these in a lot places, but this particular seller has four season-based floral designs to choose from, and for less than $10 they'd make a great stocking stuffer.

3. First Edition Book Cover Art Print - This is a little bit higher on the cost scale, but it's worth it for a book lover. There are more than 24 classic titles to choose from, and each comes in a shadowbox frame.

4. Abibliophobia Sweatshirt - Literary-inspired clothing? Yes please! This sweatshirt comes in seven colors. I like the green.

5. Library T-shirt - I'm pretty sure you can't be a bookworm and not love the library.

6. Book Stack Earrings - These, unfortunately, won't arrive before Christmas, but they at least give you a good idea...and I really love them.

7. Bedside Caddy - This is actually a really neat idea and something I would almost definitely use. In fact, if it were in a different print/pattern/color, my husband would probably use one too!

8. Bolster Pillow - Much like a cozy blanket, this is one of those gifts that you can't go wrong with. 

9. Cozy Blanket - I love this patchwork blanket. It's extra long and double-sided. There are five patterns to choose from. I like the 2021 Top Chirps.

10. Kindle Cover - There are tons of Kindle covers out there for you to choose from, but I love these ones that are inspired by some of my favorite books.

11. Bluetooth Headphones - These are perfect for those readers who love audiobooks. That's not me, but I wouldn't say no to a pair.
