Every year, I pull together a list of the best gifts for readers under $20. These gifts are ones that you can give to your best friend, pop into a stocking, or make for a great give for the person you kind of know and want to give something to but may not know, say, the perfect book for them.
Of course, these gifts for readers are perfect for adding to your own wish lists, be it for the holidays, for a birthday, or just because.
I’ve broken the gifts down into categories by price, assuring you can find something for every kind of budget.
