Books are gifts that are very rarely in the hit-or-miss category. They are relatively cheap, yet simultaneously priceless if one makes the right choice. Focus on your bookworm’s taste – on what type of stories and genres they prefer, and the rest should be a piece of cake!

Now, every good gift requires memorable wrapping paper that could even be kept for later craft uses. Here are 14 gift wrapping designs that would make any bookworm want to admire the gift’s covering and almost forget about the actual gift inside (key word being ‘almost’).
