In the blink of an eye, the holiday season will be upon us, and we’re looking forward to spreading some cheer and giving the gift that gives more and keeps on giving: BOOKS.
This year (and every year, really), top on our holiday list is our local independent bookstores. They are where readers meet each other, connect with booksellers and authors, and where so many happy discoveries are made. It’s an indescribable feeling when one walks into a bookstore, not entirely sure what they want but leaving with precisely what they need. Our local bookstores are so much more than businesses; they are community hubs and a way of life!
This holiday season, we’re challenging you to do two things – one, gift books. Two, make all (or at least half) of your book purchases with a local independent bookstore. If you don’t have a bookstore in your town, adopt another town’s local bookstore as your own! If you’re looking for bookstores to support, you can search online using BIBLIOFINDER.
It’s no secret our local booksellers give the best book recommendations, but we’ve put together this guide to help you with all your holiday gifting needs. So whether you’re looking for a gift for someone else or you want to treat your shelf – you’ll definitely find some options here
Sharing is my love language, so if you like what I’ve put together in The Holiday Gift Guide, please share the guide’s homepage on your favorite social media channels or directly with your favorite bookish friends! Also, don’t forget to tag @bibliolifestyle and use the hashtag #bibliolifestylegiftguide in your posts so we can see what you’re gifting and reading.
I am wishing you all a safe and comforting holiday season!
