Author: Nicole Adler   Date Posted:14 June 2016 

Christmas is the season to celebrate, be jolly, and spread joy. Giving and receiving Christmas gifts is one of the practices that makes Christmas the favourite holiday of many people. To some the act of gift-giving may only be an empty amusing tradition, but there are actually opportunities that come with gift-giving.
Christmas gifts have a large impact on recipients as they can influence behaviour, preference, hobbies, skills, and even traits. So, when you buy Christmas gifts, you must also think about what your recipient would get out of your present. Will it develop their creativity? Will it inspire them to live a contented life? Will it improve their life in general? If you want to be more thoughtful with you Christmas gifts this year, you should consider giving books. 

What Makes Books Amazing Christmas Gifts?

There is a notion that giving books as Christmas gifts is reserved only for bookworms. While following this belief is a safe decision, doing it is like saying that only book lovers have the right to read. Here are some reasons that make books great Christmas gifts:
A good book is priceless

Reading a book is one of the most enriching experiences there is in the world of mankind. A book can entertain, bring people to a different world, educate, make minds understand or tolerate ideas different from what they hold, develop skills, guide a person to transformation, and accomplish many other things. Once you read a book, you will be amazed at how a single item can hold countless lessons and leave such a deep impression on you.

Books are timeless

With the exception of few types of books such as colouring books, books are eternal treasures, which make them practical Christmas gifts. After finishing a book, its contents and the information it holds will still be there. Your recipient can reread them anytime and benefit from it. The beauty of reading is that it can be a unique experience each time. For instance, you can read a self-help book for the first time and acquire a deeper appreciation for life. And if you read the same book for the second or third time, you will still get something new from it. This is because reading is a personal experience. How you interpret what you read depends on your circumstances and disposition at that moment.
Books are personal

Giving books is rare compared to other objects that we usually give and receive during Christmas. This is probably because it takes a lot of consideration to be able to know the kind of book that suits someone. To choose a book successfully means knowing someone so profoundly that you understand what would interest him or what type of book he will enjoy reading. Picking a book is sharing a part of you to the other person. Yes, it is intimidating. But if you really want to connect with someone deeper, giving him a book he will appreciate is the way to accomplish that.
