47th Anniversary Contemporary/Modern Gift – Books

There is always a book to fit any recipient, so no matter what your loved one likes, there will probably be a book that they would like and appreciate for the rest of their lives. If they enjoy theatre, a beautifully bound edition of Shakespeare’s works might be a good option, or if they prefer the classics, perhaps Bronte novels or Dickens books would make a lovely gift. Of course, there is no need for the present to be too intellectual. If the pair enjoy a good detective novel, Agatha Christie or Sherlock Holmes novels may be ideal, while if they like humour, some well-known TV comedy scripts in book form might delight them. You could also get the pair a matching journals, or a lovely scrapbook to store their precious memories from throughout the years? Why not frame a meaningful or romantic passage from a beloved novel in a beautiful, personalised frame as a memento of the occasion? Perhaps you could brighten up your marital home with new bookcases or attractive bookends?
