It’s not just a bookstore, it’s The Book Man!

Come for the books, and discover Harry Potter central!

Strolling by The Book Man, it’s not unusual for passersby to be captivated by the front window and drawn inside. Decked out for the holidays this year in a Nightmare Before Christmas theme, the window offers a sneak peek at the wonders within.

As one of the largest bookstores in BC, The Book Man is well known for its wide selection of well-organized books. Hundreds of thousands of titles await you in an environment that embraces the reader. However, there are 5 unique gift ideas for the literary lover in your life that might surprise and delight you to discover:

  1. Everything Harry Potter – In addition to a beautiful selection of used, new and box set editions of the Harry Potter series, The Book Man is chock-full of a magical array of everything Hogwarts – scarves, wands, jewellery, posters, pillows, wallets and more.
  2. Ceiling Pillow Store – Look up, and discover a second layer to The Book Man; a sea of impeccably selected decorative pillows. If you’re creating a cozy reading area, The Book Man’s literary-themed cushions are the ideal accessory. Priced at just $19.95, these affordable accoutrements are sure to add special flair to any room.
  3. Literary Gift Ideas – Beautifully lit cabinets have all manner of book-themed jewellery, socks, mugs and journals. Unique, obscure and quirky, each item is hand selected to ensure your browsing pleasure. Choose a quilled calligraphy pen, hand-painted bookmark, select a funky book bag, or check out hundreds of rad enamel pins. There are also dozens of tarot and oracle decks to choose from!
  4. Kids & Young Adult Goodies – Stock up on the latest and greatest kids books from the selection of over 15,000 titles or choose from almost 100 unique Lego Minifigures (and get a Lego book while you’re at it!). The Book Man’s Young Adults section has been masterfully curated by the staff, and contains hundreds of tempting titles organized by genre. Not sure what to choose? They’ll be happy to help you choose something!
  5. Foodie & Wellness Books – Choose from an impressive array of Instant Pot, Ketogenic, Dutch Oven, Paleo, Vegan and Freezer Meal cookbooks. The Book Man stays on top of dietary trends to ensure that you have the perfect cookbook to accompany that tricky new appliance or cooking style.

The Book Man boasts more than a quarter-million titles between its two stores, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, be sure to ask! Staff are happy to check their perfectly databased inventory, and if they can’t find it in-stock, they can usually bring it in new within two weeks, or can put in a request and call you when it’s found if you’re not in a hurry or prefer used.

As always, gift certificates remain a staple Christmas item at The Book Man. They’re redeemable at both locations, and there’s nothing better than giving the gift of imagination and inspiration.
