A beautiful, cozy home library and book nook is every reader’s dream. What reader doesn’t want a quiet place to curl up and get lost in a good book? We’re not quite there yet at our house, but it’s possible that someday our art room may become a library. For now, I enjoy surrounding myself with small bookish touches.
Whether you or the person you love has a dedicated room for a library or a just shelf in the corner, the literary decorating doesn’t have to stop at just books. Help your favorite reader surround themselves with book love and create their perfect literary retreat with these home library gifts, decor, and accessories.
Treat yourself or your loved ones who are dreaming of a cozy home library. These are perfect holiday gift ideas for book lovers!
Gifts for a Book Lover’s Dream Home Library
This kit is perfect for the reader who is always loaning out their favorite books (and never getting them back!). This would also be a fun kit for kids to play library.
This custom embosser is a subtle, classy way to label your books.
I sometimes try to read while cooking or folding laundry (or eating…shh). This is a handy way to keep your book flat, protected, and open to the page.
These can be put to good use as bookmarks, and they can also be displayed in your library in a vase or box when they’re not in use.
Maybe it’s not a real card catalog, but it definitely will add the feel of it to your home library.
You know some of those books will make you cry. You may be sobbing, but at least your tissue dispenser will be classy.
Obviously, you’ll need some coasters for the tea or coffee you’ll be sipping while curled up with your book. Why not Jane Austen?
A library should always have a reader–even at those sad times when you can’t be there reading yourself.
I would love to display this on its own, but it would also be a great addition to a dollhouse. What’s better that a miniature library in your real library?
A good match for the iron reader sculpture.
This lamp is like the perfect little reading buddy: it sits next to you quietly, holds your books, and softly lights the room.
Simple and to-the-point.
Books–and a library–offer serenity. This wooden sign is perfect.
This pillow will mold to any surface and hold your book. Perfect for those heavy books that are tough to hold, or for reading marathons (who says reading isn’t a workout?).
One more chapter? I know, twist your arm.
Perfect for reading in bed, on the floor, or in those (beautiful, but not-so-comfortable) window seats. I love the removable neck support.
Bookshelves are great, but most of us have at least a few beautiful books that we’d love to display. These are simple, sturdy, and get the job done.
