Whohooo it’s nearly December, which means it’s time to share my annual Christmas gifts for bookworms post. As these posts have been so popular over the last couple of years I thought I would put together another post for those looking for gifts for a bookworm. 🎁🎄🎅🏻

In the name of research and my own Christmas list (although I have a feeling I maybe on Santa’s naughty list 🤣) I spent hours trawling the Internet (no change there then) to find some amazing gifts that I’m sure every book worm would love to receive on Christmas Day 🎄 Here are some of my favourites.

**I would like to point out although I’ve included links to the items I’ve mentioned, I did not receive any kind of payment for the products in this post and nor are the links affiliated to my blog**
