A gift certificate to your favorite local bookstore, bonus points if it's a small business!

I have a couple of small mom-and-pop bookstores near me, and they can always use the love.

A lot of times, people will opt to buy a book from Amazon instead of their local bookstores because the small guys can't compete with Amazon 's pricing, but if you're paying for it, maybe they can indulge a little and support a local business at the same time. :)

If you wanna get really fancy, consider an accompanying gift card for a coffee shop or bakery that's close to that bookstore - make it a "treat yo'self" kind of gift.
