100 Gifts for the Bookworm

Luxurious Presents for the Literature Lover in Your Life

— December 13, 2010 — Art & Design
Gifts for the bookworm are not normally difficult to pick out -- get them a book! However, this holiday season, I propose you do something daringly different.

Our suggested gifts for the bookworm vary from wonky bookshelves to awesome bookmarks. From novel-esque booze bottles to library zoos, I'm hoping this literary list will spark some inspiration for your friend's (or your) next novel.

Implications - Home decor accessories and furnishings that are both functional and decorative are ideal for customers looking to blur the line between practicality and style and those looking to save money. Multifunctional hybrid furniture is cost-efficient but also caters to the consumer desire for individuality and personal flavor in their homes.
