From a cute notebook to a guided diary to a handmade leather-bound keepsake, a journal is a gift that encourages the recipient to write and remember. If your loved one is new to journaling, a guided book that suggests topics or a line-a-day journal can get them started. Beautiful inspirational journals include quotes from Scripture.
If you are looking for an upscale stocking stuffer, check out an e-reader or a tablet with e-reader capability. Light and compact, an e-reader allows your book lover to carry hundreds of titles with them at any given time. Also, it gives them access to countless free and discounted books all year. Some e-reader models can be customized with apps that turn them into calendars, organization and research tools, and more. Turn the idea into a multi-gift present by wrapping e-reader accessories and putting them under the tree.
These are not simple kids games--no one is too old for a good brainteaser. Word searches, crosswords, Sudoku, and other puzzles are wonderful ways to spend time and keep a mind sharp. Bookstores are full of mini puzzle books that slip right in a stocking. Your puzzle master can take these petite games with them in a purse or duffle bag for fun wherever they go.
Everyone needs a little inspiration sometime. A devotional is an uplifting book filled with Scripture and stories chosen to remind you of the important things in life. Devotionals are available in a variety of themes, with specialized volumes for women, men, pet lovers, parents, and more. They make thoughtful gifts your loved ones can look to all year.
Everyone loves getting a magazine in the mail, and it's even better if the subscription was a gift. Select a magazine you think they will like--a cooking one for a chef or one that deals with a favorite hobby--and order a subscription to be sent to their home. On Christmas morning, slip the current issue into their stocking with a note telling them when they can expect the next issue.
Gifts that book lovers can read are gifts they can enjoy again and again. Tuck one of these presents into their stockings, and they will be sure to thank you.
