As Christmas and New Year preparations are in full swing, a new year is just around the corner. We will soon be lighting up our houses, putting up a well-decorated tree, wrapping gifts for exchange, and planning a delicious supper. A time when we indulge in delicious food, share laughter with family and friends, and of course, give them gifts during the holiday season.

Celebrations are incomplete without gifts. No matter how old or young, everyone enjoys receiving gifts. Furthermore, books are a great gift option. What are some ideas? The following are ten reasons to give books this holiday season.

You Are Giving Someone A Whole World

A book can open you up to a whole new, fantastic world of incredible, exotic, and unusual adventures. As a result, the imagination of the mind is unscrewed, and people dive deep into the fascinating world of fantasy. Giving a book to someone in this day and age, when the world is faced with so many travel restrictions, is like sending someone on a virtual vacation for free.

You Can Give People New Ideas 

Politics, culture, traditions, and other topics like these are frequently discussed between family and friends. Sometimes a close relative or friend does not agree with our ideas and does not see the flaws in them. You might want to give them books on the same topic in such cases. Good writing will always be more persuasive than any rant.

You Can Personalize Them 

Inscriptions or messages often go well with books, so long as you do them well. You could even express how much it means to you to give that book as a gift. When many people haven’t seen their families and friends for some time due to the pandemic, doing so enhances the gift. From a Why I Love You Book to a Christmas story with your child’s name, personalization can go a long way. 

There Is A Book For Everyone

Whenever you think of gifts, there is always one item you can give to a person who dislikes books, but there is something that will definitely impress them no matter what! There are many different types of books, as well as font sizes and styles available. Therefore, all you need to do is to look for the right book based on your interest and you are sure to find it.

They Can Help People To Better Themselves

People who read are more empathetic, according to science. More empathy is needed in our world without a doubt. As a result of the Coronavirus, thousands of people, doctors, and frontline warriors have been killed. By making sure others read, and by reading ourselves, we can show empathy towards their families and loved ones.

Books Last Forever 

Books might crumble, but the memories and stories they bring along with them last forever, even if not literally. You etch a permanent memory into someone’s mind when you gift them a book.

As you can see there are many reasons to gift a book this Christmas. Do you have any others that you add to the comments?
