Gift-giving season that is...
This time of year can be overwhelming especially when you have to think about what to get for the person who has it all. Well take a sigh of relief, an alluring page-turner is sure to please whomever is on that ever-so-long list of yours!
A coffee table book is a thoughtful and engaging gift idea for the home. They are the perfect home accessory to be added to someone’s collection or as a starter gift for someone who may not splurge on one for themselves. What a treat you’d be giving them!
They look great stacked throughout the home, whether by theme, by color or by size. People love to flip through them, as they often contain gorgeous large glossy photos that open to different worlds, hobbies and interests. They can be arranged throughout any room for great aesthetic pleasure.
I’m madly in love with Michelangelo’s work and indulged myself with books I bought from my most recent trip to Italy. But don’t worry, you don’t need to travel abroad for your gift-giving. I also snapped up this gorgeous book full of iconic photos of Audrey Hepburn from Barnes & Noble for under $25.
Whether for a man or woman, you can’t go wrong with a coffee table book as a present; it says ‘I actually put thought into you your gift’. Just be sure to choose books that reflect the personality and interests of those your buying for. And if you end up getting one for yourself, don’t worry, your secret is safe with me! wink wink...
