Christmas presents for audiobook lovers can be hard to find without spending a pretty penny on some high-tech headphones or speakers. And if your loved one already has all the kit they need to be able to listen to books, you may find yourself running low on gift ideas for them.

If this sounds like you, worry not, because this year we’ve done the gift-hunting for you! Allow us to present (no pun intended) our list of thoughtful and creative gifts that the audiobook addict in your life will love - all available for £20 or less! So grab a mince pie, relax, and read on…

With lots of cheerful colours and prints to choose from, this little fabric gift is guaranteed to put a smile on your loved one’s face!
