Audio Book Lover – Sudio Headphones
Uhm, SUDIO, WHERE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?? No, seriously, I’m obsessed with audio books. I'm always listening on my commute to work, on flights, and even while working out. Audio books have become my new favorite way to read. The only problem I had with listening to my books vs reading my books was that I was always getting tangled up in cords (especially on the elliptical, UGH) .[Enter Sudio]
Sudio headphones have incredible sound quality and the Regent headphones are SUPER comfy!! As someone who takes listening to music and books very seriously, I am very particular about sound quality and Sudio surpasses my every expectation! The trendy look and superior sound of the Regent Headphones from Sudio are sure to please any audio book lover this holiday season!!

Journaling Book Lover – The Reading Planner
Whether it's bullet journals, writing journals or dream journals, I think it’s safe to say that we all know at least ONE person who is obsessed with writing everything down. I am definitely not that person and can barely remember to write out a grocery list, but for some, reading and journaling go hand in hand. I have seen several different types of reading journals floating around but this is my favorite! The bookworm life reading planner has more than 190 pages just waiting for you to fill them in! This thing is basically like goodreads but IRL and more fun to look at! So go grab some washi tape and wrap this adorable planner up for the super organized reader in your life.

Aesthetic Book Lover – Obvious State
HELLO YES I AM OBSESSED WITH OBVIOUS STATE AND I AM NOT ASHAMED. Obvious State is a company that creates thoughtfully designed literary gifts for bibliophiles everywhere. I have been a fan of Obvious State and their impeccable designs for more than a few years and even chose 4 of their art prints to hang above my headboard in my bedroom. Their chic designs appear expensive and luxurious but are actually incredibly affordable. Although I currently only own a few of their prints and mugs, I have my eye on their totes and poetry & light candles and may have even put them all on my Christmas list LOL. Okay – so now that you know how much I love all things Obvious State I think it’s safe to say that their products are a great gift for the trendy readers in your life!

Poetry Lover – Still Growing Art Print by Trista Mateer
Poetry has become a huge part of the reading community and with the influx of self-published authors it is easier than ever to get your hands on incredible writing. But possibly my favorite thing that I have discovered about the poetry community is that the merch is like??? So??? Cute???? Which leads me to Trista Mateer. Trista is not only one of my absolute favorite writers but her art is also astonishingly great. I am pretty much obsessed with every item in her shop but her Still Growing art print is something that all poetry lovers will gravitate towards. This print is the perfect addition to your poetry lovers bedroom and would look great hung above a desk! Trista has a ton of incredible pieces in her shop so I definitely suggest splurging on a few items!
