We’ve posted our own Santa holiday picks of L. Ron Hubbard titles for book lovers on your list—whether they love science fiction or fantasy, westerns or historical fiction or just straight non-stop action and adventure stories—it’s all here, and in all formats from print to digital to audiobooks.
In addition to whatever books you plan to give, here are five other gift ideas for the bibliophile on your holiday shopping list:
According to a recent article on GeekWire.com, ‘real’ books are on the rebound with digital books maintaining a steady 27% of the market. That being the case, bookmarks make a useful and inexpensive gift idea.
For a wide selection of unique bookmarks—ranging in price from $2.00 to $25.00—go to Etsy.com. You’ll find everything from dog paw prints and wicked witch legs sticking out of books to metal etched, wood engraved and even knitted ones. Many are handcrafted and can be personalized.
Best of Bookends
If the book reader on your list has ten books or a thousand, bookends are vital. We found handcrafted, one-of-a-kind steampunk bookends available at Urban Industrial Craft (also check out the matching reading lamps). Knob Creek Metal Arts has clever book ends that tell a story in themselves. Shown here are the UFO Abduction and the Frankenstein and Bride bookend sets. They have over a hundred to choose from and you can also place custom orders. For the book collectors whose books are always falling over, the Falling Books bookend from GadgetFlow.com site is a perfect match.
Want to stay warm on those wintery nights while reading your favorite spooky story or if you just want to make a book fashion statement, here are some clothing items and jewelry worth checking out. Out of Print Clothing celebrates the world’s greatest stories through fashion, featuring out-of-print book covers. For each product sold, they will also donate a book to a community in need through their partner Books for Africa. Their site has a large selection of items for both men and women from from socks and tees to scarves and totes. Shown here is their Nancy Drew Tote Bag. Storiarts have handmade scarves like the Dracula scarf shown here to keep you warm. And for a variety of jewelry items, select Book Jewelry on Etsy.com to find rings, necklaces, hair items and more.
The High-Tech, Digitally Inclined Reader
Book marks and bookends aren’t for the digital reader, but a clever case to protect their reader is vital and that being said, KleverCase in Great Britain has beautiful high-quality cases to fit most any eReader. The materials used range from leather to splashproof covers with the inside book plate customizable. All items are reasonably priced plus they offer free worldwide delivery and you can’t beat that.
Last but not least….
