If you have a book lover or bibliophile on your gift-giving list this year, books are always a great option, but read on and find some other creative ideas.
Books are always a great gift for the readers on your list, but how do you know which books to buy? The New York Times compiles lists of books each year with short descriptions. Use these lists to find the best books for your book lovers!
- New York Times Notable books of 2012 – Top fiction, poetry and nonfiction books from the New York Times Book Review
- Notable Children’s Books of 2012 – Top young adult, middle grade and picture books from the New York Times Book Review
Here’s a fun book idea for your Hunger Games enthusiast!
Don’t overlook these other great gift ideas.
Sometimes it’s hard to pick out a book for someone else. You could consider a gift card or a different book-related gift. CafePress has a lot of t-shirts, magnets, and book bags with clever literary quotes and book-related jokes. Have you seen those book purses? This is such a cute idea. If the book lover you need to buy for has an e-reader, you could consider buying an e-reader cover.
Are you looking for something quirky? You could try out this perfume that smells like new books. Maybe you need something more playful? These Great Writers finger puppets would be a fun gift!
And More Ideas….
Pinterest is another great source for more ideas.
