Dear Summer Gift Giver:
This is a no brainer. If you know anyone graduating or getting married this summer, you’re eligible for one-click shopping.
Let’s face it. Young people these days are traveling light. So a nice hardcover gift book that includes a dead president is the way to go. Save time. Save wrapping paper. Save yourself from a sarcastic, “Swell. I’ve always wanted one of these.”
And, of course, I’ve got a nice selection of books for Father’s Day. A few favorites:
On Father’s Day and Mother’s Day, any grandparent would get a kick out of
HOORAY FOR GRANDPARENTS!
Bonus Gift Book Etiquette: The amount of the check or denomination of the bill tucked inside any gift book is up to you. Be generous for one-time gifts for grads and newlyweds. In general — for Mom, Dad, Papa, or Grammy — a well-chosen book does not require any additional financial output.
Even better, inscribe a few thoughtful words inside the front cover and you don’t even have to buy a card!
Have a celebratory summer,
