Bookish Stocking Stuffers
20171222__RKR9042.jpg

It never fails that every single year I am rushing to fill stockings with meaningful, useful gifts. There are a trillion lists out there, all promising to be something you’ll love, and still, they aren’t. If you’re anything like us, you’re rushing out to find those last minute gifts or stocking stuffers, and these are things we would (OR DO) genuinely purchase for ourselves or loved ones, and truly believe they’re worthy of mentioning.

This set of Penguin Classics is my most treasured and I look forward to pulling out a book from it each and every year. I can’t recommend these enough! They can be wrapped all together or individually (they’re perfectly sized for a mid-sized stocking!

The prettiest way to mark pages with quotes you want to remember or simply as a bookmark, I use these constantly! Sometimes they pop up in the Dollar Spot area of Target, too.

Perfectly on trend and super cute, these can be found all over and are fun statements to pin onto coats, collars, totes, and bulletin boards. This is another good one!

You know how much we love cocktails and books, it’s only perfect to have these to choose from; a variety of authors and books, these are beautiful and unique statement pieces to add to your home barware collection to reflect your literary tastes.

All the cozy socks this time of year! Anyone else stock up on cute and comfy socks? Just me?! Surely not. I’m already stocking up on these literary ones and some for my kids, too! Banned books, Eric Carlile, Hemingway, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and these book stacks.

These is the classiest bookish phone case I’ve seen yet. Again, you can find pretty much any book or book themed case online if you poke around a little bit, and a case is useful AND cute. Win-win!

How perfect is this Kate Spade pouch? Keep all your accessories neat and together in your bag, or store extra bookmarks and page flags on your desk!

Bookish Stocking Stuffers That Aren't Junk

I don't know about you guys, but stockings were my absolute favorite part of Christmas growing up. As an adult, it's less fun since I'm the one doing the stocking filling, but there have been such amazing little gifts cropping up lately! We rounded up a bunch of options that would be perfect to tuck into the stocking of any kid or adult who is a bit bookish. Also, if you missed it, check out our main gift guide for the readers in your life!

If you have someone who listens to audiobooks out loud, these speakers might come in handy. A great pair of earbuds (these are the ones I have) would do the trick as well!

My son would absolutely love this illuminated bookmark, and if that's not quite your thing, these lovely wooden bookmarks are certainly gift worthy! 

A tin of book darts would definitely be appreciated by any serious reader.

Enamel pins are really trendy right now, and while there are some monstrosities out there, these are really pretty.

How fun are these Harry Potter inspired bath bombs? Bonus points if you know which book it references!

Let them carry their favorite book around with them in spirit at all times.

What about a perfect pack of pencils? Ideal for journaling, underlining in books, and looking gorgeous on desks!

It's a cliché, but you can't go wrong with a great, fun pair of socks.

These are some of my favorite things to stick in adult stockings; they're hilarious (and useful!).

Modern bookplates for kids or adults are great additions to anyone's book collection. These are my favorite!

A little $$ on a gift card to your favorite local bookstore! This is ours!

Or grab a bag of your favorite local coffee. Trust us, readers seem to love their caffeine, and a bag of beans fits nicely into a stocking!
