Okay, so I didn't do this last year, but honestly, after curating my own bookish Christmas list, I figured why not share a few holiday gift guides to help those of you who are looking for the perfect gift for the bookish person in your life. If you have any ideas, comment below! Seriously, I love looking at all things books, and the more, the better!
The gifts featured below are for the BOOKISH SORT. Meaning no specific genres, no fandoms ... just items that any book lover would enjoy.
I do not receive any compensation for giving you these ideas. This is just a fellow book nerd, passing along ideas so that her book nerd peers get some lovely gifts :)
