20+ Book Swag Ideas for Authors

Who doesn’t love free stuff? What if you got free things with your free book? Double the win!

This week’s post is about book swag.

What’s a book swag? They’re gifts that accompany a book such as a bookmark. Book swags are also used as promotional tools to get more readers interested in buying a book when it comes with cute, free things. Authors can also give away free copies of their books along with these little gifts!

Here’s a list of book swag authors can give away along with their book (and expect some from me in the future, too!):

  • Bookmarks
  • Stickers
  • Buttons/Pins
  • Magnets
  • Notebooks/Journals
  • Pens/Pencils/Erasers
  • Posters
  • Note-cards/Quote-cards
  • Totebags/Purses/Pouches
  • Drinking Glasses/Mugs
  • USB Drives/CDs
  • Keychains
  • T-Shirts/Swearshirts
  • Scarves/Kerchiefs
  • Jewelry (Bracelets, Rings, Earrings, Necklaces)
  • Toys/Games/Figurines
  • Character Cards/Trading Cards
  • Scented Candles
  • Candy/Chocolates
  • Crystals/Gemstones
  • Plates/Bowls
  • Bookplates/Letter from the author

Use any of these ideas to promote your book and you’ll be guaranteed to gain more fans!

On a tight budget? No problem! Pick bookmarks and one other item to accompany your free book copy so your readers know to come back! Hope this helps! If you have any more ideas, let me know!
