Books for Everyone on Your List

Everyone has their “signature gift”. It’s that one type of gift you love to give almost as much as you love to get. For me, I always like to give books to my friends and family. As an avid reader and “Gift Guru” I buy a lot of books throughout the year and save them for Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and of course Christmas.

They also make great last-minute gifts because you can always pick them up in store. So if you’re still stumped on what to get that hard-to-shop for person, give them a book that speaks to their personality and interests.

And don’t forget as a “guru” tip: write a personal note or inscription on the inside for that added personal touch. Time to hit the books!
