There are those that have an insatiable love for reading that defines who they are. So when it comes time to give them a gift, it makes sense to shower them with literary-inspired items. There are many makers who have a similar passion for literature and translate it into special gifts for book lovers. From necklaces to tea to cookie cutters, it's easy to celebrate your favorite bookworm.

We've found a selection of literary gifts that range from quirky-yet-practical to fanciful fun. The Wicked Witch bookmark, for instance, helps to keep your place but is definitely a conversation starter; when the book is closed, two tiny feet stick out from its cover. And for those that enjoy infusing their sartorial choices with literature, we've included an exquisite necklace made entirely out of books as well as a leather clutch that looks just like a copy of Pride and Prejudice.

See our entire selection of literary gifts below.

Know a bookworm? These quirky literary gifts are a perfect way to celebrate their love of reading.
