1. The Gift of Massage

Screen Shot 2014-12-06 at 4.50.37 PM I know it sounds off-topic, but hear me out. Readers that find an awesome book are going to hold the same position for a long time, oblivious to the discomfort building. For those readers that love a good suspense, the shiatsu massage pillow by Homedics might be the ticket to relieve the tension between their shoulder blades, but there are tons of massage products on the market for every price range. Even tummy-readers get back tension. Reading should be a treat. Help keep it that way with the gift of massage.

 

2. The gift of comfort

Make sure the reader in your life has slippers, a nice throw like this cashmere plush velvet one. Or go the fun-blanket route like a Snuggie, or a book-themed throw with sleeves, like the Harry Potter one pictured. Gourmet hot cocoa, tea, and coffee are a bonus.

 

3. The gift of keeping your place.

Take bookmarks to a personal level by having loved ones pose like they’re hanging on for dear life–they’re a cinch to make with this tutorial (and a reminder that it’s a “gripping” tale). Or, Peter Pauper Press Inc. has a selection of beaded  bookmarks that are cute, funny and cheap. Some favorites include:  Never Judge A Book By Its Movie, and Eat.Sleep.Read.

 

4. The gift of accessorizing. 

Screen Shot 2014-12-06 at 5.51.51 PMIf your reader prefers to enjoy their books on technology, consider the LapGear pillow  , a pillow that will hold your e-reader in many of the comfortable positions you want to read. Or checkout many of the different e-reader stands available. For traditional readers on the go, consider a Treadmill Book Rack or a Bathtub Caddy with Reading Rack.

 

5. The gift of subscriptions.

During the holidays a lot of reading subscription services offer gift cards like Scribd , Kindle Unlimited, and Audible. Many of these also offer thirty-day free trials for you to check out yourself. Books change lives. Don’t believe me? Check out this example (the end is hilarious):

 
And of course, if you still need ideas, yours truly and the rest of the team members have all written books (shameless plug you knew was coming). Just click on one of our names above and you’ll see our offerings.Or, if you were hoping for a sweet romantic Christmas read, I recommend The Santa Society or Christmas with Book Club (shameless plug.)
