As Christmas approaches and we all look around for presents for adults and children, why not consider buying some books? I know that I for one am always happy to receive a book as a Christmas gift and my mum commonly includes them in my festive gifts. There are many reasons books make great gifts.
When trying to come up with satisfying presents to give this festive season, books should be high on your list of exciting options. Books show thoughtfulness, understanding and kindness.
1) Books are inspiring
People are grateful to receive novels for Christmas because a lot of thought goes into selecting them. Rather than buying a random present like chocolates or drink, a book is something special.
2) They are a good use of time
Reading a book is a great use of time. Encouraging others to read well chosen books is a positive move. If a narrative is strong then the reader will get sucked in and hours will be happily spent absorbed in that story.
3) A well chosen book will satisfy
Many readers get a lot of enjoyment out of stories and so, if you know the person loves books, such a present will go down a treat.
4) Books can provide education
Providing a non-fiction text about something that you know the recipient is interested in is a good move. By feeding a fascination or giving more insight into a famous person with a biography, non-fiction works well.
5) A book is a gift that keeps on giving
Books are great gifts because, once read, you can reread them many times. Also they can be regifted later on and shared with family members. This also enables the spread of love for reading.
I hope that you agree that books make the perfect Christmas gift. Here is a previous article about some brilliant book suggestions.
