Quirky Gifts For Bookworms

We know that our readers love a good book (as well as a great magazine, of course).

Why not treat yourself to one of these useful, stylish accessories from Red Candy, or stock up with novel gifts in advance for this year’s birthdays?

Plant pot bookends, £15. Two metal L-shaped plates discreetly keep the pots steady, just add plants! To water your plants, simply slide the pots up from the metal plates. 21.5cm x 12cm x 12cm.

Flock robot bookends, £30 Full of retro charm, also available in green, and as an equally cute yellow astronaut. 22cm x 14cm x 10cm.

Fold-up book light, £32 A soft, warm glow, perfect for nocturnal reading or as a night light. Rechargeable LED lamp, 16.5cm x 14cm x 2.5cm

Runaways bookend, £23. Your books are suspended at a gravity-defying angle, giving the hero and heroine plenty of time to escape! The pressed steel bookend is concealed within the cover of the first book in the stack (we recommend a hardback). Once secure, you can lean 5-8 more books on it. 18cm x 12cm x 12cm.

Writer’s Block candle, £25. Also available in Overthinker and Grammar Police. No promises of efficacy in curing the problem, but it’s likely to raise a smile. Around 17oz soya wax.

Cloud bookshelf, £9.50. A perfect place to keep a volume of Wordsworth, perhaps!

Librarian bookend, £12. Keep the noise down, please… Made from pressed sheet metal, finished in matte black. Dimensions: 17 x 10 x 8.5cm
