Birthday Gift Ideas For Women Who Loves To Read (that aren’t just books)

Beautiful mature woman reading book. Cozy everning relaxing and reflection.

I might not be the biggest book collector on the planet, but I sure do love to read, so I have some great recommendations for your next gift!

If you’re getting a present for a lady who absolutely loves to read, you need to get her something that tells you that you both see and encourage her hobby.

And no, I’m not talking about just getting her another book. You can of course do that as well, but you don’t need to read a guide on how to buy a book for someone (Step 1: find a book you think she’ll like, step 2: buy it).

Also, bookworms tend to have more books than they could ever get too…

… speaking from experience.

This guide will give you 11 creative birthday gift ideas for women who not only love to read, but like to do so in comfort.

Let’s get into it!

Gift her a weighted or heated blanket for ultimate reading comfort

Especially if you live somewhere that comes with cold, dark winters -- like my state of Washington.

Nothing makes a long reading session better than a weighted blanket, like this one that I'm personally a big fan off.

Alternatively, you could get a heated one if you think that's more their style!

Bring comfort outside with a nice reading hammock

On the other end of the spectrum from cold, dark, and rainy Washington winters -- you could also get a sweet reading hammock for the warmer summer evenings!

Allow her to take reading on the go with a Kindle e-reader

If they don't already have one, it might be because they're being stubborn.

I know I was.

But trust me, my life changed once I switched over to the Kindle Paperwhite.

For any book-lover, an e-reader is a must.

Gift her this beautiful, personalized leather bookmark

Get them a quality, customized, and personalized leather bookmark from Leatherology!

It might seem like a simple gift at first, but with the quality and customization that this brings - the normal reading session all of a sudden feels a lot classier.

It's also a great present to combine with something else, like a bottle of wine, liquor, a book you found or a gift card. If you have one personalized item, the rest of the gift automatically becomes more personalized even if it wouldn't be on its own!

Let her read even when she can't with an Audible Subscription!

I love reading, but I also love audibooks.

That way I can listen to my books while on my runs, while commuting, hiking or anything else that requires my eyes to be off a page.

An audible subscription is a wonderful gift for anyone who wants to keep reading, even when they can't do it.

And no: listening audiobooks is not cheating!

Set the ambiance by gifting her some luxury candles

One thing I've learned about bookworms over the years is that they absolutely love to set that perfect cozy ambiance.

So let's help them out with that by gifting them some luxury candles!

This set by NEST New York comes with an array of choices to set the tone for a cozy evening reading session.

Holy moly, writing this guide is really making me want to put on a cup of tea and get to reading.


Get her tons of new stuff with a customized curated book box

Get them a curated book box that comes with tons of goodies every month! You can choose to get them 1, 3 or 6 months depending on how much you're willing to spend (I suggest getting at least the 3 month option).

The box comes with customized books and covers, both paperback and hardcover, as well as 3-8 pieces of merchandise depending on which option you go with (they vary from $20-50 a month).

Check out The Big Book Box right here!

I guarantee they'll love it. It's like a little Christmas morning every time the box arrives.


Improve her collection by gifting her an autographed book from her favorite author

If you know they have a favorite book, go over to Barnes & Noble and check their signed section to see if they have a signed copy of that book!

It's a beautiful and rare treasure for a lot of readers to have.

Add to her reading beverage kit with a luxury tea or coffee set

Nothing goes better with a good cozy reading sesh than a good cup of coffee or tea.

Honor this wonderful hot-drink sipping reading tradition by getting them a luxury tea or coffee set!

If they're more into coffee, I recommend you go with this Luxury Turkish Espresso Set.

For tea-drinkers I'd go with this Japanese one.

Gift her peace and tranquility with a set of nice noise cancelling headphones

Sometimes you want to have that peaceful moment and just enjoy your book, but life throws a million distractions at you, even in your own house!

It could be kids running around, husband watching sports waaaaay to loudly on the TV, or construction on your street at that exact moment.

Or maybe, she just wants to read in peace on the bus during her morning commute.

Either way, them block it all out with some high quality noise cancelling headphones!

If you want to get her the literal best on the market right now, we recommend you go with these Sony's.

Alternatively a much more affordable option are the Commalta's!

A woman in comfort is a happy one, and make it personal by customizing it with engravings!

Get her a personalized luxury spa bathrobe with her name, initials or anything else you think would be cool.

Nothing beats waking up on a weekend morning to read in a comfortable robe, cup of coffee and favorite chair. It's like comfort on comfort on comfort!
