Holiday Gift Guide for Bookworms 2020

Obviously, being a major bookworm, I needed to create a gift guide of my favourite bookish products!

OwlCrate YA Subscription

OwlCrate October 2020 UnboxingOwlCrate – $29.99 USD/month

Ok, seriously, this isn’t a surprise at all if you know me … but if there is a bookworm on your list give them the amazing gift of an OwlCrate subscription. Every month the incredible team curates a box of magic, filled with a brand new hardcover YA release, 4-6 high quality bookish goodies, all centred around a unique theme. It is Christmas every month! I have subscribed to them for over four years and continue to be blown away — you can use my code TALES15 to save yourself 15%.

Every bookworm needs a place to store their favourite bookish quotes and passages and what better place than this gorgeous, handmade, leather journal? I bought one of these amazing journals for my husband a few years ago and the quality is fantastic!

Booknerds need comfy spaces to indulge in their hobby without the worry of back pain … nothing ruins a good book faster than being uncomfortable! So grab one of these deluxe back pillows for the book lover on your list and you’ll be a super hero this Christmas.

In my two years in the bookstagram community I haven’t met a bookworm who doesn’t love at least one of these classics … and those pretty covers? Bookshelf gold!

Deep Diving Book Light

Modcloth – $33 CAD

You can’t read if you don’t have light … and I don’t think I’ve come across a cuter book lamp tbh.

Still my reigning supreme favourite bookish-themed candle company! Use code AOTALES10 to save 10%.

Bamboo Bath Tray

Urban Outfitters – $59 CDN

Every night this bookworm basically sets up camp in the bathtub for a good reading session … this tray is an excellent way to keep everything organized and within hands reach – book, candle, drink, etc. Plus, it looks fabulous in bookstagram photos.

Any of them. All of them. I can’t get enough Out of Print in my life … especially their wonderful socks.
