Give books for the holidays! Part 1

I LOVE giving books as presents, and it makes me really happy whenever I’ve given someone a book that they end up loving. Unfortunately none of the people I’m giving gifts to this year really LIKE receiving books as gifts, even when I try super hard to find them something they’ll like. (They prefer to steal my books instead.) However! I’m sure there are tons of people out there that DO like getting books as gifts and so I’ve decided to make up a post with ideas on what to buy them! I mean, yeah, you could always just buy them a gift card, but what’s the fun in that?

I went a bit insane in making up this list, so much so that I’m going to divide it into a few parts. Maybe three total? Meanwhile, here’s 18 gift ideas!

Doing this in pictures because visuals are awesome! Click on the cover to go to the book’s Amazon page.

For adventurous youngsters:

For people who feel nostalgic a lot even when they didn’t do the thing that makes them nostalgic in the first place:

For people who wish they were explorers:

For people who like to think about symbolism a lot:

For people who like watching true crime shows:

For people who want to travel:

A second gift-idea post will be up sometime next week!

  1. “For people who wish they were explorers”
    This one almost made me jump up and down in my seat.

    “For people who like to think about symbolism a lot”
    Now there is an eye-catching list title.

    Thank you for the inspiring ideas!

    1. I think specific categories are almost always better than just “for mom,” “for dad,” etc. 😀 Not all moms are the same; one mom might want to explore caves, for instance, while another wants to bake a giant cake filled with jam. Those moms (or whoever) need different gift ideas– and so here I am! Haha!

  2. Great idea for a post! I love giving/receiving books and thankfully so do my family, so I guess i’m pretty lucky on that account!
    I remember seeing the Lost City of Z on Amazon a while ago and thought it looked interesting, i’ll have to make sure to track it down locally now! The travel ones look great too, especially the Roald Dahl one. I love his fictional stories but i’ve never read his autobiographical ones.

    Looking forward to the second post! 😀

    1. I really enjoyed Lost City of Z, although the descriptions of the sorts of bugs that can attack you in the Amazon were GROSS. They gave me the creepy-crawlies for days after!

    1. Haha, yep! This post was super easy to write. Some of my other categories are harder, especially if I’ve only read one suitable book and have to do research for the others.
