Hello historical fiction fans! The holiday season is upon us, so I’ve put together a little gift guide to help you find the perfect gifts for the readers in your life. These gifts aren’t necessarily directly related to historical fiction books, but that just means they’ll work for any kind of reader. I know finding the perfect present for all my loved ones is a really special part of the holidays for me. We all know the holidays are about more than just gifts, but the act of giving and bringing others joy to others is a big part of my own holiday tradition. And I hope these bookish suggestions help you get started or spark some ideas for your own holiday gift giving!
So without further ado, here are some great gift ideas for all the readers on your holiday list this year:
I love a good candle whether I’m curdled up reading or tidying the house, and this all-natural soy wax candle with notes of “rainforest, sugarcane, and coffee” sounds like just the thing for candle-loving bookworms everywhere. Grab one for yourself and a friend from Salty and Lit.
You can never go wrong with a nice, unique bookmark. I love this one created from “a real Sugar Maple leaf dipped in gold.” You can find it and other gorgeous variations on Etsy at Arborvita: Real Leaf Jewellery and Gifts.
Or maybe a more book-centric bookmark like this one from Literary Emporium.
One of my all-time favorite bookish accessories is my Kindle cover designed to look like a cover of Pride and Prejudice. It’s stylish as well as functional and shows off my love of one of my favorite books. You can fine your own (and choose any book you like!) at Klever Case on Etsy.
There’s just something magical about cracking open a book cover and seeing a map. Bring that spark of literary magic home with a literature-inspired map like this one featuring the location of Shakespeare’s plays from Bibliotography.
You can never have too many books or too many mugs! Get this adorable “books books books books” mug from Fable Bound to show off a love of books while sipping on some coffee or your favorite blend of tea.
And of course…
Share your historical fiction love with some great titles from the past year like:
Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doer
Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid
The Pull of the Stars by Emma Donoghue
Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo
The Forest of Stolen Girls by June Hur
Island Queen by Vanessa Riley
Or gift one of your own personal favorites!
