Books make brilliant Christmas gifts. Here are my top 10 reasons to give a book this Christmas!
1 Budget gifts
Books are affordable. You don’t have to go into debt to give someone you care about something special.
2 Stocking fillers
Books are just the right size to fit into a Christmas stocking. It’s like stockings were made for books!
3 Magical gifts
Books are magical. You can transport a loved one to a whole new world just by leaving a book under their tree.
4 A present for the future
Anticipation is one of my favourite things about books. Everyone needs something to look forward to. Especially when the break is nearly over and the reality of the real world is looming!
5 Gifts for unique individuals
Books are personal gifts. You can give a book about whatever the recipient is interested in. This shows you pay attention. Which shows you care.
6 A gift to yourself
Books are easy to wrap. You’ve got better things to do than watch YouTube videos of how to wrap different shaped presents.
7 Travel gifts
Books are portable – the recipient can take them wherever they go. So they can enjoy them more of the time. This also means they can bring a little piece of you along when they travel.
8 Gifts for art lovers
Books brighten a home. Authors and cover designers spend a lot of time on those book covers so readers can enjoy them. Even before the first page has been read, the cover will bring them joy.
9 Gifts for everyone
There is a book format for everyone. Hardback, paperback, picture book, ebook, audiobook – there’s a type of book for every person in your life.
10 Gifts to make someone feel loved
Every time someone reads a book you gave them, they remember they are loved. That’s a really special thing.
Those are my reasons. Why do you give books? Which books you are planning to give, or hoping to receive, this Christmas?
