There’s nothing better than curling up with a good book and being transported into another world—especially for those who want to avoid the winter season. And while a novel is a welcome gift for any book lover, there are also plenty of other delightful, reading-related products out there. Even though some might prefer e-books, gift-giving is more special when you exchange something thoughtful and physical, hand-to-hand. Not to mention, it’s hard to beat the scent of an old book (we found a candle for that), or simply the tangibility of a page-turn.

Our book lover gift guide is full of great gift ideas for bibliophiles, including a personal library and a 100 book scratch-off poster for those with an ever-growing reading list. There are also plenty of book-themed accessories—such as enamel pins and colorful statement earrings—for bookworms who want to show off their literary love.

From blankets to curl up under to page holders that will ensure you don't skip part of the story, there is plenty to choose from. So if you are looking for the best gifts to give the literary lover in your life, look no further. Avid readers will most certainly enjoy being gifted any of the presents on this list, whether it's an item that helps them enjoy their favorite book or simply shows their passion for literature.
