Need A Last Minute Gift? A Book For Everyone On Your List

'Tis last minute gift season.

'Tis last minute gift season.

'Tis last minute gift season. With Christmas fast approaching, we are entering the oh-no-I-haven't-bought-a-thing-please-help era. You're in luck because I am here to help.

There is no better one size fits all gift than a book. A book is highly personal and intimate while being casual enough for someone you don't know so well. 

Behold my list of books for toddlers and grandparents, teens and BFFs, moms and dads, hookups and significant others. And, best of all, you can get them quickly and easily online or from your fave indie bookstore. Don't forget that gift receipt in case you know their taste so well that they've already read it!
