Christmas Gift Guide 2023 – Ideas for Readers

I do love a good gift guide as I personally find them so helpful when I’m stuck on what to get people and, as this is a blog for writers and readers, I wanted to share five items that I’ve found that I think would be perfect for the book lover in your life. 


Penguin Book Print. 

The first item is something that I’ve always wanted but never managed to get and that is this classic Penguin book cover print.

There’s something so timeless about these covers and there are so many to choose from, from Jane Austen to Graham Greene.

I think these would look so beautiful up on the wall and it’s a great way to share your favourite classic Penguin novel. 

You can buy these prints from Penguin by clicking here. 


Interesting Stories about Curious Words by Susie Dent. 

What lover of books doesn’t love, well, a book? I’m a great fan of interesting words and came across this non fiction book from Susie Dent, known as the oracle from Countdown’s dictionary corner. 

If your loved one is anything like me, I enjoy finding unusual words and their definitions and think this book is perfect for that. What do you think? 

You can buy this book by clicking here and heading to The Literary Gift Company website. 


Popsy Teacups Print Notebook. 

Popsy Clothing is a brand I adore and I will always do what I can to spread the Popsy love. There is almost always a literature/bookish themed top available on the site. The tops are good quality, are so comfortable, are long and the best thing of all, the tops have POCKETS!!! I know! 

However, the product I wanted to share is this beautiful Teacups Print Notebook. Maybe the bibliophile  you know is wanting to make notes or is part of a book club and needs somewhere to make notes about their book of the month? Or they like making a note of passages, words or quotes they particularly liked.

This notebook is A5 and has 90 lined pages.

The Book Lover’s 2024 Calendar. 

Who doesn’t love a good Calendar and this one from the Calendar club is so pretty.

This square calendar has stunning illustrations of book covers from novels like Jane Eyre, A Catcher in the Rye and 1984.

It is a 12 month calendar and is a Monday start.

This product is going on my Christmas list.

You can get this from The Calendar Club.


Book Journal. 

Finally, I wanted to share this book journal from Papier.

This is another brand I’ve used and loved in the past and this journal looks stunning. 

It’s the perfect way to keep track of the books you’ve read. Like the notebook from Popsy I shared, this would be good if you’re doing a reading challenge and want to make notes on the books you read or it could be a great companion if you or a loved one are  a member of a book club and want it to make notes for the catch up.

It also has a few pages to add your book wish list.

Whatever the purpose, this journal looks perfect. 

You can buy it from Papier.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
