Setting up the ideal reading nook, however, may take a little time. If you have a friend who A. has recently moved; and B. would rather be reading than, well, pretty much anything, help them create a cozy oasis for losing themselves in the latest bestseller with these bookworm-approved gifts. From book cover art prints to author coasters, bookends to candles that smell like libraries, these housewarming presents are way better than a boring bottle of wine or a houseplant they can't keep alive. Shop these bookish gifts ahead!
