This person may be difficult to shop for all year round, so included here are literary gifts that can be given at special occasion. The hardest part of this will be not keeping all these amazing gifts for yourself!

For the jet setter and traveling book-loving friend, he worst feeling in the world is being at a really good part in the book and having the Kindle or eReader shut off due to low battery.  A Life Charger will charge every popular book device:  iPad, Kindle Fire, GoPro Camera, e-Cigarettes, e-hookahs, bluetooth headsets, headphones, Apple watch, Samsung smartwatch, fitness watches, Nike Fitbit, and more. solar-charger
