Are you still Christmas shopping? As the big day hurtles closer, those ads warning of “last minute” are starting to hit home. If you have avid readers/writers/word-and-punctuation nerds on your list, you might be interested in these dozen ideas, inspired by a UK site I found with 25 book-related gift ideas:

1.  “Reading is Sexy” mug
$10 from !ndigo; available online and in stores. I received this last year and love it.

Reading is sexy

 

 

 

 

2.  Maple leaf reading socks.
$24.50 from !ndigo; available in certain stores only. You’re probably thinking, “Really? You need special reading socks?” I got a pair of these in an oatmeal colour last year, and they have a lining the store calls faux sherpa that will make your feet unbelievably cosy. Great for working in stocking feet, as I usually do.
