Holiday Gifts For Your Favorite Bookworm

This is the fourth post in a series on finding perfect holiday presents for your loved ones. We’ve already covered gifts for chefs, adventurers, and handypeople, so now let’s move on to those clever book lovers…

Whether they prefer Aristotle or Dr. Seuss, we all know a bookworm or two. Some are students, some are teachers, and some are simply literary enthusiasts, but they all enjoy sitting down with a good book any chance they get.

If you’re looking to give them something they’ll really enjoy this year, and you’ve exhausted the idea of giving, well, books, then why not help improve their reading experience with light?

Check out these awesome reading light ideas:

For Readers On The Go

On long plane rides, evening commutes, or even for retreating under the blankets, some readers need a light to take along. Our bright, hands-free flexible utility light makes a great gift for bookworms on the go, because its flexible arm can conveniently wrap around the cover of a book or e-reader, or even around your neck! It can also be hung, attached, and propped almost anywhere, for your book lover to enjoy his books everywhere.

For Intensely Focused Readers

If your book lover can pour over books at her desk for hours, and rues silly disruptions, you might consider gifting an adjustable desk or table lamp. These allow your reader to direct light where she needs it most. Here are a couple of options:

The Swytch LED Desk Lamp is sleek and functional, and has an adjustable arm than can extend light over an entire work area. Its subtle design lets it blend inconspicuously with almost any décor, fitting easily on desks or side tables.

Classic jointed adjustable desk lamps also aid readers, allowing them to position light where they need it most. Besides desks, these lights can work as handy additions to living room side tables and even night stands.

For Ritual Readers

If your bookworm has a special place around the house he or she likes to read best – a chair, or a nook, or just in bed – they may benefit from a wall mounted reading light to enhance the space. Here are a few different options:

Try a swing-arm fluorescent light for a classic look – it offers 3 different light settings and comes in several different finishes.

The LED adjustable reading light’s flexible arm lets you direct warm, white light anywhere you need it. It’s available in brushed nickel or antique bronze to compliment any design taste (and any book).

Our halogen wall mounted reading light’s popular modern design, paired with crisp white light makes it the perfect addition to any bedroom, study, or family room (update 9/26/2013 – this item is no longer available).
