A Good Book is a Good Gift

Are you still not sure what gift to get that special someone for the holidays? If they like to read, a good book is a good gift.

Books are my favorite kind of gift to get. I keep a wish list throughout the year, and whenever someone asks what I want, I just send that list right over. Easy!

So why give a book for the holidays?

  • Books don’t have to be expensive
  • They’re easy to wrap
  • They don’t take up a lot of space
  • They can be read over and over again
  • If your recipient doesn’t like it, a book can easily be regifted

For an extra special touch, you can write a thoughtful note inside the book cover that the recipient can read whenever they pick it up. This is more enduring than a card that will just get thrown out after a few days. Even many years later, your note will still be there.

If you need some help picking out the right book to get, try browsing Goodreads. They put together a list of the best books of 2021 in every category.

A good book from this list can be a good gift.

You can also consider giving one of your own favorites, or choosing from my list of the best finance books. The gift of financial literacy is one that keeps on giving!

Have you ever given a book as a gift yourself? How did it go over?

  1. Hey the Cares Act for PPP and Stimulus 1 spending bill totaled 3.4 trillion in new money creation. I purchased Bitcoin at 9k in early May 2020, as I expected inflation to follow this spending. I also predicted more spending to follow. At time or writing that hedge is up 500%. Was that a good investment or should I have stayed in cash? Please let me know as soon as you can.
