Best gifts and gift ideas for Kindle lovers

Book-scented candles, ebook subscriptions, gift cards, or literary jewelry are among the gifts you can give someone who reads ebooks on a Kindle e-reader or in a Kindle app.

You can gift the Kindle once. You can gift the next generation Kindle. However, gifting a new Kindle every two years shows you’ve run out of gift ideas. There are more ideas at hand than you think.

If you want to give a gift to your beloved one or a family member who already owns the Kindle e-reader, you actually have more options to explore than when thinking about bookish gifts in general.

An obvious online destination to browse for Kindle-related products is Amazon online store. But you may wonder what specific items to buy – there are millions of products you can choose from in the largest online store!

Two specific areas that relate specifically to Kindle owners are: special services that are connected with the Kindle ecosystem, and benefits specific to paper books that a Kindle user might miss.

Jump to the list

In the list below, you’ll find both the digital gifts, perfect for someone who consumes digital content, and real gifts that try to fill the gap between reading print and electronic books.

Gifts for Kindle users – highlights

In the following list, you will find ideas for:

  • A personalized case or sleeve
  • Book-themed home decor
  • Kindle Unlimited subscription
  • An Amazon gift card
  • An all-in-one innovative bedside lamp
  • A digital bundle of popular book series
  • A screen protector
  • A Bluetooth-enabled speaker or wearable
  • An Audible gift membership
  • Jewelry that looks like miniature books
  • Apparel with book cover art

Shopping events in 2019

  • Green Monday ⇢ December 9 – the last chance to shop for gifts and get them safely delivered for Christmas; some of them are unexpectedly big
  • Amazon Digital Day ⇢ after Christmas – a shopping event devoted to digital content – everything you can download, stream, or play on your computer, tablet, or phone
  • End-of-year Deals ⇢ last days of 2019 – mainly deals on digital content; they are revealed during Christmas and are active through December 31

⇢ Current deals

Gifts for Kindle users – recommended sites

The obvious online destination for everything related to Kindle is Amazon. If you, however, would like to check out other sites, here are our recommendations.

Etsy – this is the biggest online store with handmade goods. The selection of bookish gifts is impressive, so Etsy is a must-see destination, especially if you want to gift something unique in style. As all items are made to order, there are several ways to add a personal message – also for the bookish items listed below.

Redbubble – a marketplace for custom designed items, including prints, stationery, cases & covers, or t-shirts. Opposite to other sites, such as CafePress, the quality of the artwork is much higher.

Not on the High Street – unlike other stores, the site offers beautiful things – showcased beautifully. The team is hunting for the best items on the net to include them in the growing catalog of curated products.

Amazon Handmade – the store rests at Amazon.com, includes thousands of hand-crafted items, and is quickly growing. You’ll find here jewelry, home decor, kitchen & dining, furniture, and stationery, among other categories.

Best gifts for Kindle owners

1. A personalized Kindle case or sleeve

Gifts for Kindle owners - MoKo case for Kindle Paperwhite

Many people who decide to buy the Kindle, almost automatically add to the cart the original Kindle case from Amazon. It’s available in a few colors, so you have the feeling you have freedom of choice.

Case covers are the kind of the gift Kindle owners will be more than happy to receive. Covers usually get damaged faster than the Kindle they protect, so exchanging the cover for the same Kindle model is something many users do.

The only thing you should do is check out which cover the giftee currently owns – and try to buy a different one: by color, design, and functionality.

Let us give you advice: don’t buy the cover that first comes on a list of search results. Try to find something unique, something that would express the personality of a person you are going to give a gift.

One way is to explore cases available in several insanely colorful and fashionable color versions. Our favorite brands are Fintie and MoKo. Both of them you can find on Amazon.

You can also check out Caseable. The site offers hundreds of original designs for Kindle. Most importantly, you can personalize the artwork by adding text and changing colors – or design the cover from scratch by adding your photo.

Another option is to go for a handmade accessory, made to order. There are many gorgeous Kindle cases and sleeves available on Etsy. Many shop owners offer the option to add a text or adjust the design to specific needs of the person who orders it.

2. Book-shaped home decor

A modern book lover stores all ebooks on a single Kindle e-reader. On one side, it’s extremely convenient, but here is the question: how to express the love for books?

It’s good to have something at home that reminds of the evening one can spend with the book and a cup of delicious coffee or tea.

Sometimes a little home decor that resembles an old good book will make the gift recipient happier than another Amazon gift card or a boring case cover.

And you will be surprised how many great-looking, creative products you can find. You’ll even want one for yourself!

3. Kindle Unlimited subscription

Kindle 8 and Kindle Unlimited bundle - save 30 dollars

If someone is using the Kindle heavily, it means she or he is hungry for books. You can always buy them the new release from a favorite author, but here is a better idea: Kindle Unlimited.

Kindle Unlimited ebook subscription gives unlimited access not only to over a million Kindle ebooks (it’s about one-fourth of the entire Kindle Store), but also thousands of audiobooks. Current issues of popular magazines are also included.

If you decide to gift Kindle Unlimited, you can select one of subscription plans: 6, 12, or 24 months.

It’s worth keeping in mind to know that from time to time you can grab the Kindle Unlimited subscription at a reduced price. Amazon usually offers the deals for Prime Day and Cyber Monday. You can expect the discount is between 20% (6-months plan) and 40% (24-months) for long-term plans, or get a short-term subscription for a symbolic price.

⇢ Kindle Unlimited

4. A bathtub table and reading stand

What do lovers of print and electronic books have in common? They most probably love to read in a bathtub.

This most relaxing time of the day can be even better if one takes to the bathroom some more things than just the latest waterproof Kindle.

Multifunctional bathtub tables are getting more and more popular. They can hold an e-reader or a print book, a cup of tea or a glass of wine, a snack, and a few tealight candles.

Most bathtub tables and tablet holders are expandable, so they will fit most tubs.

⇢ Bathtub tables

5. An Amazon gift card

Amazon gift card - Kindle branded

Buying a gift card is the safest of all the gift ideas. On the other hand, it may suggest you haven’t spent enough time to buy the relevant gift, so you’ve chosen the most convenient way.

If you don’t know the giftee’s favorite authors, genres, or book series, buying the newly released bestseller from the top author might not be the good idea. The only thing you know for sure is that the Kindle users will need money to buy the ebooks.

Therefore, you can purchase the gift card, and let the giftee choose the titles.

Amazon gift cards are available in hundreds of designs for almost all occasions. Among them, you can find Kindle-branded artwork. Best of all, you can add your own photo to an e-gift card. Getting a cover of the gift recipient’s favorite novel is a great idea.

How big should be the value of the gift card? Kindle books cost between $0.99 and $12.99. If the giftee likes to read bestselling titles from big-name authors released by big publishers, the $25 gift card will be enough to buy two books.

⇢ Gift cards

6. An ebook bundle of a giftee’s favorite book series

Gifts for Kindle addicts - ebook collections

What if you very well know the book preferences of the Kindle user you want to give a gift?

Probably, she or he was reading some book series in a print format. Why not making them happy again by giving a chance to re-read favorite books on their Kindle?

One of the greatest things about ebooks is that many well-known book series can be bought in bundles, as a single ebook file that includes all parts of the series. Therefore, you don’t need to buy particular volumes one by one.

What’s most important, the bundle is cheaper than buying all parts of the series separately.

To find an ebook bundle on Amazon, go to Kindle Store and in a search box type the title of the series, followed by either “collection” or “bundle.”

7. An all-in-one bedside lamp

Bedside lamps are no longer about giving you the light when you are reading a book before going to sleep. Especially that Kindle e-readers have a built-in front light.

Bedside lamps have evolved to become multipurpose appliances that meet different needs. They combine a lamp with an alarm clock, a charger, or a Bluetooth speaker.

Many modern-day bedside lamps offer adjustable brightness or an ability to control the warmth of the light. And some of them look like from the future.

The widest choice of innovative bedside lamps can be found on Amazon. For best results don’t explore only “Electronics” category, but make sure to browse “Home & Kitchen” and “Appliances” as well.

Tech specs Best cases

8. A screen protector

Kindle Oasis screen protector from Nupro 2-pack

Someone who owns a precious device is usually crazy about protecting it from scratches, dust, and accidental drops. The cover is the first aid, but it doesn’t prevent the screen from accidents that might leave the scratch on it.

And the display is the part of the Kindle you’re looking at all the time.

Therefore, to give the Kindle user 100% guarantee nothing wrong happens, it’s good to give her or him a product designed to protect the screen.

Amazon’s store with Kindle accessories includes screen protectors from several producers. Simply, from the left sidebar select the Kindle model the gift recipient owns, and then pick up “Screen Protectors.”

Usually, the more expensive the Kindle model, the wider range of screen protectors you’ll find for it.

Kindle screen protectors are sold in sets, usually consisting of three pieces. Besides protecting from scratches, smudges and dirt, they are easy to install and don’t affect how the touchscreen display works.

⇢ Screen protectors

9. Bluetooth speakers, headphones, or wearables

Now, when all Kindle models are capable of playing Audible audiobooks, it’s a great idea to gift headphones, earbuds, and portable speakers.

What you have to keep in mind is that Kindle e-readers don’t have a headphone jack. The only way to listen to Kindle audiobooks is via Bluetooth speakers and headphones.

The main advantage of Bluetooth headphones is that they are wireless. You are not limited by cables and irritated by cable mess. You can freely move around the room while the Kindle is lying on the table.

The main disadvantage of Bluetooth headphones is that you need to recharge them. Compared to the Kindle, which runs a few weeks on a single charge, you’ll need to find the power source every even day.

That’s why it’s good to buy a speaker or phones with the longest possible battery life.

10. An Audible membership

Buy prepaid gift membership directly on Audible

Since Audible audiobooks can be seamlessly played on Kindle devices, it’s worth considering Audible as a gift. You can obviously buy a single audiobook, but here is a better idea: get Audible prepaid membership plan.

Audible gift membership can be purchased on Amazon. You can choose from four plans: 1, 3, 6, and 12-month. The 3-month plan is the most popular option. For $45 the member will get 3 full-length audiobooks and 6 Audible Originals.

You can customize the Audible gift before making it ready to give.

You can choose the delivery method (email or print), select the design from gorgeous ready-to-use layouts, and set the email delivery date.

If you choose to gift Audible membership by email, Amazon will send the gift together with easy to follow redemption instructions.

11. Miniature book jewelry

Book jewelry is a great gift for every woman who loves reading. For Kindle users who may sometimes miss the look of the print book, the jewelry that looks like miniature objects of desire is a clever idea.

The jewelry that includes miniature book charms is available on Etsy, the leading site with handcrafted and vintage goods made to order.

If you prefer shopping on Amazon, you can also find book-themed jewelry here. There is a new sub-store with handcrafted goods called Amazon Handmade.

⇢ Amazon Handmade

12. A t-shirt with a book cover art

The problem with ebooks on the Kindle is that nobody knows what you are reading.

One way to express you love books is wearing book jewelry, the other one is getting relevant clothing.

What about gifting a t-shirt that features cover art of the giftee’s favorite book? Out of Print Clothing offers a range of t-shirts, both for women and men. Among the designs, you’ll find The Great Gatsby, The Little Prince, and Animal Farm.

You can buy Out of Print Clothing literary t-shirts directly on Amazon.

⇢ Literary t-shirts

13. A travel electronic organizer

If the gift recipient already owns a Kindle e-reader, you can assume she or he has already bought a case cover.

With a growing number of electronic devices (and a growing need to keep all of them at all times), travel organizers become an important companion of every heavy tech user.

A travel organizer usually features two big compartments: one can fit a small laptop, and the other one can be devoted to store and protect a Kindle.

Plus, there are a several smaller pockets for cables, headphones, chargers, adapters, and personal essentials – all cleverly organized in the smallest possible space.

14. A book-inspired candle

Many people who start reading on the Kindle are astonished with tons of features that make digital reading not only convenient but also enjoyable.

The only thing that’s missing is the addictive scent of an old book.

Kindle users would be more than happy if they could keep the book scent while they read an ebook. Therefore, the gift that does that will be warmly welcomed.

There is a growing number of scented candles that recreate the scent of a book and library. The chemistry behind that? A combination of grassy notes with a tang of acids and a hint of vanilla.

A growing number of book-scented candles can be found on Amazon Handmade.
