LITERARY GIFT GUIDE: 45+ OF THE BEST BOOKS TO GIVE AS GIFTS
As I’ve gotten older, it’s become increasingly more difficult to thoughtfully select presents for all 50+ on my shopping list, especially distant relatives, coworkers, and obligatory acquaintances. Gift cards look lazy, wine assumes that the recipient drinks, and sweets aren’t appreciated when gyms have shortened hours and cakes and pies are already running rampant around the kitchen (ie. the holidays). For these very reasons, books have become my go-to gift for both genuine book worms and home dwellers with coffee tables in need of literary decoration, which essentially covers all the adults I know. Everyone’s reading preferences are different, so I’ve broken down this list of the best books to give as gifts into the following categories: books for anyone, books for the fashionista, books for the entertainer, books for the interior designer, books for the creative, books for the wanderluster, books for the comedian, and and books for the mindful.
