If you are already working on a Christmas list, you must be a person who likes to get things done early. While others are still shopping for their Christmas gifts, yours are probably purchased, gift wrapped, and ready to give to friends and family members. Do you already have a plan for the presents you will buy? If that's the case, you don't need to read any further. However, maybe you are looking for ideas. If this is the case, from choosing adult romantic thriller novels to selecting gifts to accompany them, here are some ideas that might help you as you shop:
Adult Romantic Suspense Novels
Have you considered having a reading theme for this year's Christmas gifts? If many on your list already love reading, books will be a perfect gift. If some of the folks on your list aren't avid readers, the gift of a suspense novel that has romance as part of the plot will more than likely make them reading addicts.
As you shop for novels, your biggest challenge might be making your selections from the vast number of romantic suspense books out there. For classic novels, think of buying books by authors like Victoria Holt, Phyllis A. Whitney, or Daphne Du Maurier. If you want to select more contemporary novels, go with authors like Sandra Brown, Maya Banks, Julie Garwood, and Nora Roberts. The clerk at the bookstore will be happy to make recommendations of new bestsellers as well as older books.
Gifts To Accompany The Books
The romantic suspense novels will be a great gift by themselves. However, you might want the gift to be more important by giving the recipient an accompanying present. For example, if you bought Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, think of also giving the recipient a copy of the movie, which is a true classic.
Creating a gift basket with books as the theme would also be a fun idea. Besides the romantic suspense book you place in the basket, think of also giving a bottle of wine to enjoy as the recipient reads his or her new book. Another idea would be to give a soft blanket and a humorous pair of socks along with the gift. Or, select a t-shirt that says something like A Room Without Books Might As Well Be Empty on the front of the t-shirt. Bookmarks are another good thing to put in your gift basket.
