Holiday Gift Ideas for Lit Lovers

The holidays are coming and along with all the sleigh bell jinglin’ and hall decking comes the stress of finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones. Should you get your cousin Jay another fancy bottle of gin? Does Aunt Marge really want another framed photo of her bulldogs? And what to give that book loving niece/nephew (or sister, brother, mother, father, husband, wife, child) of yours? Another generic gift card? NO! Let us help!

Here at Writers & Books, we are all book lovers (duh) and we do enjoy a good book as a gift. A gift certificate is also fun as it allows us the freedom to choose a book that suits our fancy. But there are lots of fun, quirky, and cool gifts that you can give your literary loved one this holiday season (or yourself! Don’t ever forget to #treatyoself)!

Specially wrapped by our staff, the package comes with a note from an author affiliated with Writers & Books (previous contributors include Ann Patchett & Anne Panning) as to why they picked this book to share, and an invite to a special readers event surrounding the text. The Turning Pages Readers Circle Membership is a great gift for the reader in your family!
