Need to get a gift for a reader who also happens to be a geek? We completely understand.
Although books are always a wonderful idea (check out our favorites), if they happen to be a geeky book geek, it could be hard to find the right one.
So geeky book accessories for the win! Here are my five favorite gift ideas.
1. Geeky Bookends
This is a perfect gift! Someone with a ton of books needs a way to hold them up! I’m a big fan of bookends and I’ve already written an entire post on the geeky and nerdy bookends (like the one above) made by Knob Creek Metal Arts. But they aren’t the only people making geeky bookends. Here are others:
There are millions of geeky bookmarks out there… there is no way I’d be able to find them all.
Fantasy, sci-fi, superheros, gaming, tech, you name it, there is probably a bookmark for it.
However, I did love these upcycled Lego bookmarks by Amazon seller geekynchic.
Made from real lego, they come in multiple colors, and cost $7.99.
3.Science Fiction Reading Lamp
I don’t know about you, but in my house, I want to continue reading long after the spouse wants the light turned off. A reading light is the answer, perfect for a dark car, plane ride or any place when your book needs a bit more life.
Book lights have been around for a while, but for $15.99, you can take a bit of time and space with you with this Tardis book light from ThinkGeek.
Doctor not included.
4.Secret Book Vault
If someone has a lot of books, then a book is a perfect hiding spot for treasure.
These book vaults are quite popular, consisting of books with hollowed insides.
Some have finished compartments and lots of storage space, but this one on Etsy uses a science fiction book. Win!
DIY gift, you say? You can make them yourself…if you have the proper tools. That much paper can be hard to cut.
5.Cover for their e-reader
Be it Kobo, Kindle, Nook or iPad, somewhere there is a geeky cover or case waiting to be discovered.
So far, my personal favorite? This “Neverending Story” cover available at Geekify Inc. for $58.95.
Geekify Inc. makes them for a large variety of different devices and they look spectacular.
They also made a e-reader cover that resembles Myst Linking Book.
