Collage of gifts for book lovers from UK small businesses

We’ve said it before, but we don’t think you can ever go wrong buying a book as a gift. Of course, we’re biased but we think a book subscription is an excellent choice for kids and you can read about the benefits here. (link to blog post).

But there are lots of option for branching out when it comes to buying presents for booklovers. Why not opt for a book-themed gift or a special something to accompany the book you’ve chosen?

We’ve been window shopping on your behalf and have put together this list of 9 fantastic presents for book lovers from 5 to 99-years-old!

We’ve got one of these t-shirts wrapped, ready and waiting to give to my 9-year-old on Christmas Day. But I know plenty of adults who would love one too. It looks like they're currently sold out but keep an eye out for updates. Or the A5 foil prints are a great option too!
