25 Literary Gifts for Book-Lovers

From Dangling Mobile Libraries to Children's Literature Flasks

— December 10, 2014 — Business
It might seem obvious to get the book lover in your life a novel this Christmas, but if you want to think outside the box, there are tons of other literary gifts you can get them!

Books shape our world and our lives, so it's no wonder they also inspire other products. There are book-shaped soap bars, pint-size literature necklaces, literary upcycled planters and even book-scented candles! Because there's nothing quite like turning the crisp pages of your latest literary purchase and inhaling that sweet new-book smell. It's a little slice of heaven!

If you want to go the more functional route when it comes to gift-giving, you can opt for a rotating bookshelf or a hands-free reading pedestal.
