2. For your messy bookworm friend: A Nightstand Bookshelf

If you're a physical book lover, then I understand being messy and all. Bookworms get so lost in those fictional worlds, they often forget to clear up the mess they create with the huge pile of read-books on their bed. So how about a nightstand bookshelf? Yeah, it's a prefect and a very thoughtful gift for the book lovers. So splurge on this neat and beautifully crafted bookshelf for your geeky friend and save them from their own mess of books. Also it will be nice to teach them a lesson to stay organized :-P

And you, my friend, can make a book-lover's Christmas more special by gifting him/her the most beautiful, warm, feathery soft blanket. So make your geek friend's Christmas very warm.

9. A bookworm's favorite hobby: A Quotation Book 

A bookworm's all time favorite gift- a quotation book! I suggest, if you want to stand out with your present then try to make them a DIY quotation book.

Steps to Make a Quotation Book:

i) Ask his/her all time favorite book. Say The Fault in Our Stars or Pride and Prejudice or any Charles Dickens novel or even maybe Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series
ii) Google all the remarkable and the legendary quotes from that book and list them in a piece of paper
iii) Now write those quotes one-by-one in each piece of paper. Be creative, this the tricky part. Use glitter pens, stickers, scented stickers, and any possible decorative tid-bits
iv) Make a beautiful, mesmerizing and his/her favorite book-themed cover
v) Staple them nicely or you can bind them
vi) Presents are never complete with a nice little wrapping paper

Voila! Your Christmas Present for your geeky friend is ready and see how their Christmas become so amazing and special because of your hard-work.
