Cool Housewarming Gifts For Your Book-Loving Pal - That Aren’t Books

    9.4K  Views

    Book lovers revel in the pleasure of staying in and curling up with a good book, rather than going out. I speak from experience. Now, heaven forbid if they have to move to a new place, which can be incredibly taxing, especially when you have a monstrous book haul to tackle. Again, from experience. 

    Now for the big question: What to get your book-loving friend as a housewarming gift that doesn’t add to their woes? Books would be a pretty obvious choice but you can’t be sure if they’ve already plowed through the buzziest reads or it’s a genre they would kill for. So, we scoured the mighty terrain of Shop on LBB and came up with these cool bookish gifts your bookworm pal will squeal with joy at.

    Coasters are a good choice for a housewarming gift. Mostly because in taking care of all the big things these little details are often overlooked. What better way to please a book lover who has recently shifted houses than a set of bookish coasters? The writing on this set by Inside Out Innovative Designs will have your nerdy pal nodding vehemently in agreement.

A bare bulb with a toggle switch perched on George R R Martin’s classic Game of Thrones book shaped wooden platform. Price may be a little steep but totally worth the happiness it will bring to your bookish bud.

    Book lovers have their priorities straight. The first thing they unpack after moving has to be their beloved books. How else can a bibliophile really settle into a new place? So bookends make for a perfect housewarming gift. I found a beautiful set of snowy peaks book ends from 1 BHK Interiors on LBB Shop. If your friend also happens to be a wanderluster, this gift will be the ideal pick!

    This scented candle is for a person who knows it all. I am sure that book-loving friend of yours is THAT person or at least they claim to be. This hand poured, soy wax candle is for the geek in your life. Even better if the geek in your life has moved into a new place. Sweet musk smell for when your pal wants to cuddle up with a book and forget all about the musty smell of cardboard boxes waiting to be unpacked.

    For The Outdoors

    Chances are that your book-loving friend has so many books that they have run out of things to carry it in. Enter to rescue your housewarming gift. Let them have this adorable bookish tote by The Art People to store all of their new reads, while proudly declaring their love of reading wherever they go! They will love you for this opportunity to be loud and proud of their bookishness.

    For The Kitchen

    While book lovers seem easy to shop for - just buy them a book, right? But do you know what they’ve already read? Would you know the celebrated authors they secretly hate and the unheard of ones they love? No, right? But chances of going terribly wrong with a book that tells you how to make ah-mazing desserts with foolproof tips on styling from an ace baker are very slim. We are talking about Bake With Shivesh. Yep, help them whip up a dessert storm in their new kitchen and watch the fun armed with a tub of popcorn.

    For The Living Room

    Do you want to absolutely floor the book lover in your life with the best housewarming gift they can ask for? This accordion stool from Flhexible is a 2 kg folding stool like a hardbound book and it can bear about 300 kgs of weight! Which means you will be giving them an origami-inspired innovation that can hold half a ton of weight, and fold away on the shelf like a book! It probably doesn’t get better than this.

    For The Reading Nook

    Setting up the kitchen is not on the priority list of a book-lover who has recently moved. They are more busy imagining what the reading nook is going to look like. A little help there would be greatly appreciated by them. So ditch the crockery for sure, instead give them this perfect cushion for their reading nook that says Readers Gonna Read. Yep, that’s true and there’s nothing you can do about it. The kitchen can wait.
