Books can feel like an unexciting, unoriginal gift to give for Christmas. The risk of someone already owning the book, the panic that they won’t love it as much as you do, or perhaps someone not being as big a reader as you thought all pass through our minds when we’re planning to give a book as a gift.
Coffee table books have risen in popularity over the last few years. No longer are they just heavy, bulky encyclopedias that are full of photography or the history of an icon… coffee table books these days are stunning and most of them don’t just look beautiful, they are well written, have brilliant content and actually give us some sort of value.
Personally, even if I receive a beautifully designed book that I know I might not read all the way to the end of, it’s still going to have some great uses. I use books for interior styling, photo sessions and sometimes books that you can pick up and read for five minutes are what you need – opposed to books that take chapters to get into and half a book to find the real point.
I’ve rounded up a few books that I’m hankering to give this year – most of which I would also love to receive. Check them out and let me know your favourite gift books are right now.
