Is someone on your gift list a bookworm? Or perhaps you, yourself, are devoted to all things literary? If books, libraries, and bookstores are a big hobby or personal interest of your gift recipient, we’ve got ideas for the perfect luxury gift to shop this holiday.

Conventional wisdom would dictate that the perfect gift for a bibliophile is  . . . a book. While that sounds like a no-brainer, it’s not so easy. Unless you happen to know your gift recipient’s favorite authors and genres. And even then, there’s no guarantee that your gift isn’t already on their bookshelf or nightstand.

Instead, we’ve come up with some book-adjacent luxury holiday gifts for that special bookworm in your life.

Here’s an elegant way to help the avid readers on your list fully furnish their home library. After all, having the right accouterments can turn the simple act of reading into an immersive event. Set why not help set the optimal conditions for a marathon read?

We love this elegant bookstand from luxury publisher Assouline. It comes in a variety of colors, but we love this clear one best – it lets the book on display take the spotlight.
