The Holiday’s: a time to give and a time to receive. When it comes to gift giving, some of us are better at it than others. Gifts that you give does not have to cost a fortune to show your appreciation and love but it should be meaningful. Through the course of this year, we’ve met some fantastic people that we think have great taste. For our Themed Holiday Gift Guide, which we chose not to launch until after Thanksgiving because really we would love to have had turkey before, we asked some of our favorites in the city to pick their favorites. Like the saying “I want to go to your doctor’s doctor.” We wanted to share the best with you from the best. The first in our 7-day themed Gift Guide is for the Bibliophile. Whether its someone that loves to collect books, loves to have a good book ontheir coffee table.

Bibliophile: a person who collects or has a great love of books.
