Lit Nerd Gift Guide: Ten Presents for Bookworms

Page 2 of 2


Reading, though a delight, can also be a strain on your baby blues. Maybe your bookworm friends can see perfectly now, but in a few years, they'll have a massive collection of Walgreens $2 magnifying glasses, mom-style. This Jonathan Adler pink heart glasses case will come in handy at that point.

Your book loving pal probably isn't a total fashionista. It's your job to help her out and turn her total nerd into nerd chic. Is nerd chic even cool anymore? Who cares, it's better than just plain nerdy. Buy your style-challenged friend this "Reading Is Sexy" pin. It will pop on any librarian's lapel. Grab one on badideasleepover's Etsy.com.

You also have a friend who loves words and who dresses fancy and rich. This is the lady to whom you grant one of these fabulous Olympia Le-Tan clutches. Each is embroidered to resemble the cover of your favorite book. Crafty and so freaking cute. We love these bags (hint)!

These NERD book ends aren't just the perfect gift for Pharrell, but also for that special man who stimulates both your mind and your genitals. Nerd is a compliment to the reader in your life, so grab one of these on KnobCreekMetalArts' Etsy.
