Buy Books as Gifts

Gifts and the giving of gifts:Books make it easy to find a gift for everyone on your list.

Most people are a tad more particular, however. Still, books will alwaysbe myfavorite gifts for anyone on my list.

When I lived in Dallas, I did a lot of gift shopping at Half-Price Books.That’s when I realized how easy it was to buy a personal gift for everyone onyour list. And, of course, I like books, so it is a treat to choose them asgifts.

I keep a list on my computer. It has the names of friends and family whoare likely to receive a gift or a gift card from me.

By each name is a birth date and an anniversary date, if applicable.

Under each name is a list of their interests as I know them. For younggift recipients, that is an ever-changing list. You should call their parentseach year and get it update. For older gift recipients, most interests tend toremain the same.

Once I print that list, I am off to the magic land of books. Whether it isonline at Amazon or in a local retail store, this is easy, enjoyable gift shoppingfor me.

Another advantage of books as gifts is that inexpensive media mail. Don’ttry to add the tie you bought for your brother-in-law (you know, the one who neverreads) in the same package, though. That won’t fly.
