After we shared our 2020 gift guide for book lovers, we knew we didn’t want to leave bookish kids out of the gift-giving fun.
Today we’ve got a great selection of bookish gifts for kids who love to read. This list includes gifts I’ve given and ones my own kids have received over the years, gifts I’m planning on giving this year, and gifts I wish I had a reason to give this year.
I hope you enjoy perusing this guide, and I hope you’ll share your favorite bookish gifts for kid readers in comments.
All gifts featured here were chosen because we love them. If you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission. More info here.
I dreamed about having a personalized library stamp when I was a kid. This is such a pretty design!
Cozy socks are the perfect accompaniment for winter break reading! I might need a pair for myself.
You can put your child’s name on pencils—or maybe a family catchphrase. The possibilities and the color choices are endless!
No more struggling to hold up that heavy book while you read! Rest the book on this handy reading bean instead. It can also be used for gaming, propping up an e-reader, or even as a travel pillow.
My kids are forever stealing my journals (and pens and rainbow post-its…) so I might as well give them their own. Although this Twain Traveler’s Notebook could be a beautiful “you’re getting so grown up” adultish gift for a teen.
This mini-puzzle is darling! And at only 100 pieces, a great option for a kid to do on their own or for a family to see how fast they can put it together.
Book Cover t-shirt
Out of Print has a ton of great book cover t-shirts, like Where The Wild Things Are. Surprise your child with a t-shirt for their favorite book.
Build your kid’s library with a wonderful collection, like Puffin in Bloom. This is just one of many beautiful children’s box sets.
A great option for kids who have required reading time! This digital bookmark takes the work out of daily reading homework and encourages kids to make reading a fun daily habit.
There are so many amazing bookish tees out there. This Anne of Green Gables squad t-shirt caught my eye for an older kid.
Floating bookshelves are a wonderful touch for any kid’s room. Perfect for displaying books, of course, but any number of other treasures.
Read your way through 100 books and scratch off as you go to reveal the artwork. It includes classics like James and the Giant Peach and contemporary works like The Hunger Games.
This is seriously a go-to gift for us and it ranks as one of my kids’ favorite literary gifts, ever.
Happy shopping, and happy reading!
