5 Reasons Why Books Make the Best Christmas Gifts

13 Dec 5 Reasons Why Books Make the Best Christmas Gifts


The Holidays.

Ahhhhhhhh. That time of year when we are all wracking our brain to think of the perfect gifts for friends and loved-ones. Sometimes, it can be a complete nightmare which sends me into a full-blown panic attack.

It doesn’t have to be, though.

Literally, there is a book out there for EVERYONE on your list. And here are 5 reasons why:

5. Books are inexpensive.

Sure, some books can be as much as $50, but for as little as $10, you can get the perfect gift for someone. (Or $1.00 if you shop the Friends of the Library book sale shelves!)

4. You can personalize the book you give.

What makes a book really special is that you can write an inscription in it. It makes the book that you get for someone all the more personal.

3. A book will last a lifetime.

A toy will eventually be discarded and a sweater will wear thin. A book, though, will forever grace the person’s bookshelf. Every time they refer to the book that you gave them, they’ll remember you.

2. Shop in one place.

Whether you stay home and shop online or you venture outside your house to a bookstore, you can get your shopping done in one place — and probably in one trip.

1. Giving a book is worry-free.

When you buy a book for someone, that’s it. Wrap it, set it under the tree, and then watch the smile on the person’s face as they see the book you bought for them. You don’t have to worry about getting the wrong size, forgetting batteries, or hoping you got their favorite color.

Even with those five great reasons, there is one more reason why books make the best gifts.
