Many families have holiday traditions of inexplicable origin. In mine, the people in my family gift each other pyjamas and a book. Not regular pyjamas (aka ratty old t-shirts) — but the cute kind; the ones that are soft and coordinated.

Fiction they can tear through in a siting or a quirky coffee table book they can revisit over and over? Would they want a tear-jerker or a heart-warmer?
We did the hard part; the research. Now, all you have to do is make a decision. The good news is that you can tick off all your Christmas gift shopping in one go. Sound too good to be true? It isn’t – all you need to do is head to your favourite bookstore, armed with this list, and you’ll have your shopping sorted so that you can think about other things like what you’ll cook or wear this Christmas.
