Christmas Gift Ideas: Be A Santa Clause, Gift Books as Presents

By Malavikka

Christmas is around the corner as the mood of the season has already brightened up. Jingle bells and dazzling stars are not only the representation of a Christmasy setting.

Christmas represents love and joy wrapped in the form of infant Jesus. How about wrapping some books for presents and gifting lore of knowledge for your near and dear ones? Not just them, but the needy ones who yearn to read also deserve some love. Here are some of the books that you can gift and be someone's Santa.



The holy scripture is unarguably the best choice of books you could gift when it comes to gifting a book for Christmas. May be you could highlight some of the quotes and wrap the book in an attractive gift wrapper to give it a special touch.

Only those who have the habit of writing a personal diary know its real value. With new year too fast approaching, you could buy one of the attractive diaries in the market and gift it to someone to sow in them the habit of writing.

This is best suited for children as their creative thinking peaks during childhood. Adding some glittery stickers to the cover page could make their eyes grow wide with excitement just at the sight of such a book.
