It is the most wonderful time of the year — the time for making our lists and checking them twice, figuring out what goodies we hope get left in our stockings, and figuring out just the right gift for each person on our list.
Here at 5 Minutes for Books we want to help you out by giving you some great gift ideas for those on your list. We are going to feature books and toys and activities for kids as well as more universal gift ideas that could be perfect gifts for some of those people who you just don’t know who to buy for.
In addition, as always, we will be featuring some other great gift ideas (you can always check out that label by searching the archives by category in the right hand sidebar).
We will be posting new giveaways each day. All giveaways will be closed on December 3, and the winners will be announced on December 4. Check each individual post for the terms of the giveaway, including whether or not it’s open to U.S. only or Canada as well. Bookmark this post, because we will be keeping a running list of the giveaways so that you can click through and enter. Only one entry per giveaway per person.
All giveaways are now closed, but we hope you will refer to the posts as gift recommendations.
