Everyone has that one friend who loves books, books and more books. Finding gifts for avid readers AKA book lovers is not that hard but if you have a friend with a library full of all the novels you possibly know of, that’s when you need some ideas to rescue you from the pandemonium of crazy ideas.

Nothing beats a good book experience, setting the technology aside with no-one coming between you and your text. Bet it sounds heavenly! We see the online version of the novels (e-books) almost everywhere on the internet and as convenient it has become, the true reader in you can only find satisfaction in the touch and smell of the actual book.

Check out the list of these apt and interesting gifts you that can surprise your bookworm friend with. So here is our guide to gifting avid readers!

  • Book rest lamp

Avid readers tend to read almost any time of the day or night. For that purpose, you can gift a lamp which emits a soft warm light perfect for late night reading or early morning. It can also be used as a book rest on its top as it is shaped like a house. With its dual purpose, your friend will never end up mixing up the page number. Or, if your friend does not already have one, you could gift him/her with a Kindle! But like we mentioned before, nothing beats the real “book reading” experience.
