5 Sites For Your Bookish Mother's Day Gifts

TheBookWheel By TheBookWheel Published on May 3, 2016

Mother’s Day is coming up, which means it’s time to put on our thinking caps and figure out exactly how to show our appreciation for this special lady in our lives. If your mom is like mine, she’s so easy to shop for it becomes difficult. I know my mom will love anything I get her and jewelry is always a safe bet, but I also know she has her favorite necklaces and earrings and that they are hard to replace. My mom is also a reader, but for some reason I shy away from getting her bookish goodies. This year I plan to change that and while I haven’t settled on which site her gift will come from, I know it will come from one on this list. If you’re having trouble shopping for your own book-loving mom, perhaps one of these sites will help.


I love GoneReading.com and have worked with them several times in the past for my own events on The Book Wheel. They carry a little something for everyone, including literary coffee mugs, book-shaped serving plates, bookish board games, and notebooks. But one product stands out for Mother’s Day: the bamboo bathroom caddy. It’s basically a little table for your bathtub but it comes with a built in stand to hold up your book, a slot to slide your wine glass into so that it doesn’t fall over, and is adjustable to fit any size tub. It’s both bookish and encourages relaxation, which is exactly what our moms deserve.

Oberon Design

Oberon Design specializes in handmade leather products, including e-reader cases. We actually bought my mom one of these a few years back and she loved it. Their cases are high quality and beautifully made with intricate designs that will have heads turning. They also make non-bookish products so you have plenty of options.

I’m a big fan of audiobooks, particularly non-fiction ones. My mom is always on the go and I know she’d like to squeeze in more books, so subscription to Audible.com may be just the ticket. Plus, they just launched a new podcasting feature so you get more bang for your buck.

Litographs.com offers stunning posters, t-shirts, and tote bags that feature full chapters of text on them. The kicker is that they are designed and color-coded to create a visual image. Remember that phrase from Clueless, “He’s such a Monet”? This line meant that something looked great from far away but, up close, was a mess. Litographs products are like that only instead of being a mess, they are the words from a book. 

BookRooks (Etsy)

BookRooks is a new company I learned about when they reached out to me. They make amazing bookish products out of actual books, including music boxes, light boxes, and carved out books for purses, flasks, and more. It looks like they put a lot of effort into their products and even pad the insides of with beautiful fabrics. They are fairly expensive compared to the other sites on this list but they offer unique products that are sure to make mom smile.
