Not only are we dialing in on essentials like kindles or bed lights but come the holiday season? We're prioritizing gifts for book lovers, too.

This LED reading light isn't just good: it's so good that Drew Barrymore approves of it. And, after seeing her recommendation, I went ahead and ordered it, and let me tell you: it's a game-changer. Its flexible design allows you to move the lamp to adjust it around your neck (or head, as I use it), and with a slew of adjustable light variations, you can choose how bright or dark you want it.
