The best gifts for Kobo users

Here are some ideas to let you pick the perfect gift for someone who is addicted to reading Kobo books.

You can gift the Kobo device once, but it doesn’t mean you won’t find the great gift next time. Just the opposite. 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 Kobo e-reader, you can actually have more options to explore than when thinking about bookish gifts in general.

An obvious online destination to browse for Kobo-related products is Kobo online store. But what specific items to buy?

Two factors make picking the gift for Kobo owners easier:

  • Kobo user will buy content from the Kobo ebookstore,
  • Kobo user may miss the benefits of the print book.

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 paper and electronic books.

Gifts for Kobo owners – recommended sites

If you 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 Kobo users

1. Kobo case or sleeve

Gifts for Kobo owners - Kobo case covers

Gifts for Kobo users - handmade Kobo sleeve

Many people who decide to buy the Kobo device, almost automatically add to the cart one of the original Kobo accessories.

Unlike iPad or Kindle, new Kobo models are not accompanied with lots of accessories. Usually, there is one or two case models in one or two colors.

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

If you don’t want to buy the common design and color, try something unique, something that would express the personality of a person you are going to give a gift.

First of all, you should go for a handmade accessory, made to order. There are hundreds of Kobo 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. Kobo gift card

Gifts for Kobo users - egift cards

Buying a gift card is the safest of all the ideas presented here.

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 best idea ever. The only thing you know for sure is that Kobo users will need money to buy the ebooks.

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

Kobo gift cards are available in several colorful designs. You can buy them online and in several cooperating retailers across the world.

How big should be the value of the gift card?

Kobo books usually cost between $4.99 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.

3. Ebook bundle of a favorite book series

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

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

The great thing about ebooks is that many well-known book series can be bought in bundles – as one 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.

Here are a few popular ebook bundles available in the Kobo ebookstore:

To find an ebook bundle in the Kobo online store type in the search box the title of the book series, followed by either “collection” or “bundle.”

4. Waterproof sleeve

Gifts for Kobo users - waterproof sleeve

The most desired function of the Kobo case is protection. All cases protect, to a greater or lesser extent, against dust and scratches, but what about water?

Having in mind that water protection is needed only in a couple of circumstances, it’s good to think about the waterproof sleeve. It’s cheaper than the case, but you can operate your touchscreen Kobo while the sleeve is on.

We recommend buying the sleeve that is designed for larged devices. So, if you have the 7-inch Kobo e-reader, get the sleeve designed for the device that has the 7 or 8-inch display. Thanks to that, the Kobo owner will be able to put the sleeve on without the need to remove the current case cover.

There are several waterproof sleeves on Amazon. Some of them come in a range of bright colors. You can also find sleeves that are sold in packs of two or three.

5. Miniature book jewelry

Gifts for Kobo users - miniature book jewelry

Book jewelry is a great gift for every woman who loves reading. For Kobo 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 extremely popular on Etsy, the leading site with hand-crafted goods made to order.

You can also find miniature books on Amazon. There is a new sub-store with handcrafted goods called Amazon Handmade.

6. A literary t-shirt

Gifts for Kobo owners - literary t-shirt

The problem with ebooks on the Kobo 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 the 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.

7. Book-scented candle

Gifts for Kobo users - book-scented candle

Many people who start reading on the Kobo 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.

Kobo 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.
