Not to mention, their wishlists for such items are presumably very specific. Just asking a book lover about their latest reads will likely prompt references so particular that they're bound to fly over anyone's head who isn't nose-deep in novel-land. Despite these specifics, you do have an advantage in the gift-giving department.
It's guaranteed that every Bibliophile will enjoy accessories that enhance the reading experience. For example, playful bookends to hold that honorable favorite or fountain pens to take quickfire notes. Perhaps, you could even interest them in a chocolate library or a bathtub caddy for evenings spent thumbing through whilst surrounded by bubbles? Ahead, 20 niche, sometimes cliche, and all-around superb holiday gift ideas for every story enthusiast on your list.
