5 Holiday Gifts for Those Who Love to Read
- Star Wars. Have a Jedi on your holiday gift list? With the latest “Star Wars” movie scheduled to come out on December 18, the franchise is all the rage right now. Indulge their fandom with Star Wars®: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know: Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens from Barnes & Noble. This brand-new Lucasfilm book is filled to the brim with trivia, strange-but-true facts, and fascinating “Did You Know?” Q&As. Regardless of what era they became a fan, this book has something to offer every “Star Wars” fan.
- Tablet. Encourage kids to read by giving them access to e-reading. They’ll be able to read wherever they go via the Ellipsis Kids tablet, exclusive to Verizon Wireless. With a low price point, durable design, and removable bumper for protection from drops and scratches, this tablet is ideal for kids. The Zoodles Kid Mode offers expert-picked educational apps, videos, and e-books to entertain kids while they learn. The long-lasting 5,000 mAh battery will keep them busy for hours. Parents can tailor activities to their children’s ages and skills and monitor their activities through the (free!) lifetime Kid Mode Premium access.
- Magazine Subscription. Do you know a young person who loves to read? Give them a gift that keeps on giving: Highlights Magazine. Designed for kids ages 6-12, this magazine has been delighting youth for decades. I remember it being such a treat to receive as a gift from my mom. That kid on your gift list will receive one issue every month for 12 months. Each issue is filled with stories, games, puzzles, riddles, science experiments, craft projects, and interactive entertainment. With 40 pages of fun and educational content, they’ll look forward to receiving each issue.
- Boxed Book Set. Indulge their love of reading by giving them a collection of books to devour. Hastings has a large assortment of boxed book sets to choose from, including the new Harper Lee Collection: To Kill a Mockingbird + Go Set a Watchman (Dual Slipcased Edition); George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones Leather-Cloth Boxed Set (Song of Ice and Fire Series); and Hunger Games Trilogy Set : The Hunger Games; Catching Fire; Mockingjay. Boxed sets provide a complete reading experience, along with a wonderful collector’s item to be displayed on their bookshelf, desk, or mantel.
- Reading Lamp. Light up your gift recipient’s holiday season and preferred reading materials with a Studio 3B™ 18-LED Clip Lamp from Bed Bath & Beyond. A 19-inch lamp with a 5-foot power cord, the lamp can be attached anywhere — the side of a desk or laptop; the back of a hardcover book — and the flexible gooseneck allows readers to shed 110 lumens of illumination on the subject of their choice. A handy gift for late-night bookworms.
