What bookish items do you love to give as gifts?
This would have been easier when I was younger. Atleast till my early 30s. I was the bookworm. I read a lot, mostly fiction with the off biography and I also read a lot about some history and things.
When I was younger, while my cousins and uncle watched cricket matches, I could be found lying in a corner or sitting in a sofa with a book in my hands. As a youngster I loved comics and could spends hours with a bunch of them. As I turned 14-15 I turned to novels and read a lot each months. I liked to read as much as I could. People found it easy to give me gifts; they just needed to get me some books.
If I would gift someone now, I’d try to find their interests and get books based on them. Biographies, autobiographies and memoirs. If they like a particular field of interest or sports then I would find books on that. Someone likes horror – Stephen King’s novels. Etc etc. Get a few books and have them gift wrapped and give them as a gift for a housewarming, anniversary, promotion or birthday. Even some coffee table books are good gifts.
