Personalized Coffee Mugs

A hot drink, most of the time it is coffee, happens to be the best companion when it comes to reading.
Don't you agree? And if you know that the person who'll be receiving the gift is also a coffee or tea lover, then this option is a definite winner.  You can customize the mug with a picture, a quote, or a funny graphic, but make sure it is catchy enough to show the person's love for the genre.
We tried to be a little different from the usual options, and chose a Marianne Moore quote, which is written on the front and back of the mug. The cartoon gives it a funny touch.

A Personal Journal and Quill Pen

Last, but not the least, comes the most essential item that everyone who reads, must have―a journal.
We believe that reading and writing goes hand in hand, as both tend to influence your thought process. When we read a particular style of writing, in this case, poetry, we begin to think like a poet. We're sure that every reader is a writer at heart, and what could be a better gift to inspire a budding poet, than a journal.
The quill pen adds icing to the cake, as it gives this typical ancient poet feel to a writer. If the receiver doesn't have these, you are compelled by law to gift these to them.
