I've been enjoying my Christmas vacation and scrambling to buy last-minute finishing touches and wrapping material, so I haven't gotten much written up for the blog. Sorry not sorry!
But that doesn't mean I don't have gift ideas!
Out of Print has an amazing sale going on. Using code EGIFT30, you get 30% off any of their egift cards. That means I just bought a $50 gift card for $35. That's some mighty nice savings. If you aren't familiar with Out of Print, they sale shirts, totes, jewelry, and more inspired by book cover designs. (Officially licensed, don't worry.) In addition, they partner with Books for Africa to send books to those in need for every item sold.
ETA: eGift cards are 20% at Litographs. Just use code GIFTCARD20. You can give them a gift card for the exact amount to buy a specific product. Litographs also sends books to communities in need for each product sold.
You can also pick up an Amazon gift card if you don't want to stick to egift cards. They offer free one-day shipping on the physical gift cards, so you've got a little bit more time to buy one in time for the holidays. I recommend using the http://smile.amazon.com address so that 10% of the profits from your purchase go to your choice of charity.
If you don't want to support Amazon, there's always a gift card to the independent bookstore near your gift recipient. Or perhaps a gift card to DTFBA for the John Green-loving reader in your life.
You can also go personal. Pick out one of your favorite books and include a personal note about what it means to you and why you're passing it on. You can buy a new copy or give them a copy straight from you, clearly loved.
Got any other last minute gift ideas for the readers in your life?
