With December fast approaching and the sales flowing, it’s the perfect time to start shopping for the holidays! Don’t know what to buy that bookworm in your life? Or maybe you’re looking for some ideas on what to ask for this year. Our book lover’s gift guide is here to help!

Once Upon A Book Club Subscription
Looking for an interactive reading experience? Look no further than a subscription to Once Upon a Book Club! Each box includes a book, along with individually wrapped gifts marked with page numbers. As you read, you’ll be prompted by sticky notes to open a gift that is directly related to the plot of the book. For example, a character is working on a puzzle in the book and the gift you receive is the same puzzle they are working on! Isn’t that amazing! Coming in young adult and adult versions, these boxes are fun for readers of all ages. One time purchases are available, as well as prepaid three, six and twelve-month subscriptions.
Available from Once Upon a Book Club for $49.99 (month to month subscription/one-time purchase)
What’s better than curling up with a good book while a fragrant candle burns in the background? With candles inspired by books such as Pride and Prejudice, The Scarlet Letter, or just bookish themed in general, we know book lovers everywhere are going to love these candles.
