Cue the Christmas songs! Christmas is upon us, it is the season of gift giving and what better way to celebrate it than getting your loved ones what they truly like? I know you would love it if you’ll receive something so unique and well-thought out, right? Makes the spirit of the holidays more meaningful and special! So I have compiled some gift ideas for yourself and for your loved ones! Everyone happy! Merry Christmas!
I mean come on, haha this has got to be your first consideration when you think of what to give to a bookworm. “But I don’t know what books she wants?” Well do some investigation, peruse every social media, he or she is probably running a bookstagram account and you can gather from there what new book he or she might be eyeing for quite sometime now or check twitter he or she might have dropped some hints for you to find out. Use your detective skills! Plus points if you are able to snag him or her that one book he or she wanted for like, you know, forever.
Book Depository is an online shop that could help you out with the predicament of lining in the mall and what is great about them is they offer free shipping wherever you may be! You can even address it to the person you want to receive it! Talk about convenience! And they have one of the best customer service, I kid you not!
Book Outlet is another online book shop with readiculous deals! Majority of my books came from there. However Book Outlet only ships in the US and Canada, so you might need some magic to be able to acquire books if you’re outside US and Canada. I’m from the Philippines, and we use LBC Shipping Cart to fulfill our overwhelming need for new reads. If you are from the Philippines, you can shoot me an email on how to successfully use LBC shipping cart and be able to acquire items in the US!
Every bookworm loves a bookmark, in fact their bookmarks might be more than the actual number of books they own, secretly stashed away so no one would judge them of this crazy need to acquire bookmarks every chance they get! You can easily make a personalized bookmark, but if you are feeling extra and feeling fancy why not up your gift giving game to these bookmarks:
We create the most unusual bookmarks in the world. It’s not just a bookmark, it’s fun, craziness and perfect topic-starter! Just imagine cute little legs sticking from your book! And get ready that your book will appear in the center of everyone’s attention! – MYBOOKMARK TEAM

I can swear by these bookmarks how awesome and worth the money they are! Perfect gift for your book lover and while you’re at it get one for yourself as well!
