So, it’s time to find the perfect gifts for your friends.

Bookish keychains are so rare to find, to be honest. I really love how beautifully engraved this keychain is. It’s like telling everyone that you’re a bookworm and you can’t stop reading. This also comes with a cute miniature book ornamental piece.

Reading Journal Diary for Book Lovers
How cool is it to have a journal just to track your books?
All the members of the book club can have a unique reading journal to track books. I’m all for antique book designs, it really makes me love books even more.
So I wouldn’t hesitate to grab this reading log that comes with a hundred pages.
You can track the name of the book, author, publishing date, page count and write a long review about the plot and characters.
And what makes this reading log stand out from others is “the table of content”. It’s the best way to get a quick look at your reads. If you’re hesitant to just gift only a reading log, grab this natural bamboo pen along with it. These two are definitely a bookworm’s dream.
You can definitely get this item to gift as a book club of the month gift.
Book-themed Thank You Cards with Envelopes
Technically this gift idea shouldn’t be here as it’s a few cents above other book club gift ideas.
But I just couldn’t stop myself listing these gorgeous antique book spines thank you cards.
This unique set comes with matching envelopes, so you just have to add your message and voila, ready to use. The card is made out of durable cardstock so you don’t have to worry about the quality.

I wouldn’t think twice to buy anything with Jane Eyre quotes as book club gifts.
Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre is one of my favourite books and I think the quote “I am no bird, and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” is one of the best quotes of literature. Although I do wish this enamel pin had the full quote, this design does look great.
