If you are reading this and you haven’t finished shopping for the geek in your life, you are probably screwed.
Therefore, you have three options. Stay home, don’t get a gift, and ignore that geek friend for a few months in shame. Brave the crowds today and hope to find something for that geek. Or go the way I would go.
And buy a gift card for that geek!
Personally, I love gift cards. Especially book gift cards. I like knowing that my book addiction is well-taken care of as the year progresses. I like that, at any given moment, I can grab that gift card and buy something no matter the moths flying around in my bank account. Every year, we book geeks have a list of books we are looking forward to. It gives me a fuzzy feeling knowing they are already mine.
Amazon. Barnes & Noble. Books-A-Million. Powells. A local independent. It doesn’t matter. Giving the geek gift of a book gift card can be one of the most powerful gifts that be given!
So consider that if you haven’t found that perfect gift for the geek in your life. Because that gift card might just be the perfect gift!
