Gift Giving Hacks for Readers, Geeks and More

I kind of pride myself on being a really GREAT gift giver but this year I am drawing blanks. Thankfully Barnes & Noble has a ton of really cool tools that make gift giving super easy whether you’re looking to give a book or other great gift.

what to read next great tools for picking what book to read for all readers

I personally always believe books are one of the best gifts that you can get anyone regardless of age or interests. But, sometimes deciding WHICH book can be a bit tricky. Last week I was browsing the Barnes & Noble website and got giddy when I tried out the Book Graph for the first time. This little tool is brand new this holiday season and I’m keeping my fingers crossed they’ll keep it year around. It’s a little hidden but to find it click on “books” on the top of BN.com and “Book Graph” is the first option.

Basically you click on a book cover and it leads you down a trail of related books that you can follow to find something new and awesome. With every step there are tons of options and you can click on each image to learn more about the different titles. It was so fun seeing books that I love recommended in this way. They have combined all the knowledge from their book sellers and the wealth of data on which books people tend to buy with other and well, you can see how that would make for a power recommendation tool. I could see this being super addicting. Plus this would be great when shopping for someone who reads a ton or who reads different types of content than what you might be familiar with!

super hero gifts and books for boys girls and kids of all ages

Not only is there the Book Graph, -but there are TONS awesome curated book lists and gift guides.  I love how the guides are more than just gender and age based. Of course you can start there if you want, -but, there are really interesting list themes which you might not think to search for, but lead to some pretty fun present ideas. There’s a whole selection of Super Gifts for Superheroes (a peek at that above), gifts for Game of Thrones Fans, Creative Gifts for Scientist and Makers,  Gifts to Inspire Unstoppable Girls and more.

awesome tips and tools for buying gifts for readers and geeks. books and non-book present tricks and ideas

This my friends is how you get a unique and meaningful gift your love ones will be really excited to get! In addition to lists with both non-book gift ideas as well as fresh reading material there are tons of straight up book lists to guide your gift giving (even if it’s for yourself, I won’t judge) like “Thrilling Books for Teen Readers“. 

And as fun as it is to shop from the convenience of your own home in your jammies, you might want to throw on some clothes because I’m not sure if you are aware, -but in most Barnes & Noble locations this holiday season they have a super special Harry Potter aisle!

Tons of Harry POtter gifts from Barnes and Noble

It is jammed packed FULL of goodies, books, and tons of gift ideas all inspired by the J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It’s got great goodies from the original series as well as from the Fantastic Beast movie and the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Screenplay. You guys I wanted it all, scarves, wands, games of all sorts, stuffies, DVDs, there’s so many fun things!

I’m not sure if you’ve ever just wandered the non-book isles at Barnes & Noble, but they always have the most fun gifts for kiddos, geeks, and really anyone! I’m actually drooling over the FAO Schwarz Christmas decoration I saw there earlier this week.

star wars at barnes & noble

I’ll be doing a live walk through on Facebook this week if you want a little peek around and for you Star Wars fans they have a Star Wars aisle too!!!

So if you’re at a loss of what to give the special people in your life head over to Barnes & NobleBarnes & Noble whether in person or online and you’re sure to find plenty of fun options!
