As you might soon notice, I prefer to give and receive practical gifts.

Replacement Batteries for E-Readers

Depending on the type of e-reader one uses and how often one uses it, the batteries for them may only last a couple of months. It’s always a good idea to have a spare battery or two in case a device cuts out.

Waterproof Cases

Reading in the bathtub is one of my favourite self-care activities after a hard day. This is a much more relaxing activity if your phone, e-reader, or other device won’t be ruined if you accidentally drop it in the tub!

Three clear glass teacups stacked on top of each other. Each one contains a small amount of tea, and they're sitting next to a clear glass teapot that is half full of tea.Tea

I feel like I talk about tea every time the topic of bookish gifts comes up!

This is a great idea because it is a consumable present and fits all sorts of dietary restrictions.


When I read paper books, I sometimes need to scrounge around for things like old receipts to use as bookmarks. Actual bookmarks tend to be much nicer to look at!

  1. Good points! I hadn’t thought about the waterproof cases. Smart. (especially if you’re somewhere where it rains *g*)

  2. I use to put my Nook in a ziplock baggie for the tub πŸ˜€

  3. These are very practical, so very useful. Love the idea of waterproof cases for bath reading.

  4. I’m surprised by how many are mentioning tea. I’m a lover of many types of tea and didn’t think of it. Thanks for coming by.

  5. Mmmm, tea. It really does seem to be the perfect non-book gift for readers.

  6. I have a number of leftover cards that I use for bookmarks – things from games that are mostly lost, a few little art cards, and like that.

    And of course Tea is always a good answer. Doesn’t even matter what the question was.

    My answers are here – thanks for stopping by!

  7. I agree on the bookmarks. I can never find one when I want one.
