When it comes to gift giving, not much is as easy as gifting a coffee table book. For those new to the world of coffee table books, these books are over-sized, filled predominantly with photos, and are usually hard-covered. Other than being a great read, their purpose is to be displayed on a table intended for use in an area where one entertains guests.
Coffee table books inspire conversation and are a great way to entertain oneself when one is alone or waiting for their hostess to return. So, when gifting a coffee table book, try to learn the likes and desires of the giftee(s).
Here are 12 coffee table books focusing on various subjects:
There are so many beautiful and informative coffee table books on the market today, the difficulty comes in choosing the right one. So, if you ever find yourself overwhelmed at the large number of choices, do not narrow your selection down to one. Bypass the anxiety and purchase two or three books instead. This will quicken your purchase process as well as increase your odds of gifting the perfect book. For tips on wrapping coffee table books, click here.
Another easy gift to give is flower bouquets. Really, you can’t go wrong with flowers. They are impersonal, beautiful, smell lovely, and are easy to buy. Traditionally, bouquets were either wrapped in paper or placed in a vase. But if you are looking for an elegant but modern way to gift a flower bouquet this year, the 7 photos below are a great way to go.
The great aspect about this gift choice is you can do a fresher and more affordable version by hand with just a small box (or hat box), a Florist’s oasis, and the flowers of your choice. Check out A Pair and A Spare. They have an easy-to-follow tutorial on DIY boxed flowers.
