Sometimes buying gifts for people who like to read can be challenging. They tend to own all of their favorite books and have pretty specific ideas about what they’re planning to read next. Sure, you could just ask them what’s on their TBR or give them a bookstore gift card, but if you really want to wow them, I suggest going for the element of surprise.

Take the time to find that perfect unexpected gift that shows them just how well you know them and how much you support their love of reading.

Whether your gift is designed to set the mood for a long reading sesh (candles, cozy throws, reading socks) or help them conquer the pile of books that always seems to accumulate in any room they inhabit (book tree, book basket, tote bag), even the most discerning of readers will be appreciative of such a thoughtful present.

So, without further ado, here are our top 43 gifts for people who love to read.
